Cut-in using a brush to coat the perimeter of the surface area that is next to the wall.
Apply the stain, using long even strokes. Apply in one direction to avoid lap lines. Apply the stain when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90 degrees F. Since concrete varies in texture and porosity, 2 coats may be required for uniform appearance.
Allow the first coat to dry for at least 4-6 hours before re-coating, if necessary. Apply the second coat in a criss-cross direction for uniformity of appearance. Do not apply more than 2 coats.
The surface must be fully cured before use.
