Preparation & Prime

New and Uncoated Concrete or Masonry Surfaces:

  • New concrete must cure for a minimum of 30 days.
  • For proper penetration and adhesion of topcoat, use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® Concrete & Masonry Cleaner and Etcher No. 991 to clean and etch the surface. Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product. Follow all label instructions.
  • Apply a product such as BEHR PREMIUM Concrete & Masonry Bonding Primer No. 880 to increase adhesion of topcoat to the surface. Follow all label instructions.

Painted, Stained or Sealed Concrete:

  • Option 1- To completely strip the entire surface, use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM Concrete & Masonry Paint Stripper No. 992. Follow all label instructions.
  • Option 2- To recoat over an existing coating, remove any loose or peeling paint and scuff sand the surface.
  • Use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM Concrete & Masonry Degreaser and Cleaner No. 990 to clean previously coated surfaces in sound condition.
  • Use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® Concrete & Masonry Cleaner and Etcher No. 991 to clean and etch any bare concrete surface. Follow all label instructions.
  • Spot prime all uncoated areas with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM Concrete & Masonry Bonding Primer No. 880 to increase adhesion of topcoat to the surface. Follow all label instructions.

Application

  • DO NOT THIN. Intermix all cans of same product to ensure colour uniformity. Stir stain before and occasionally during application.
  • Use product when air and surface temperatures are between 10-32°C.
  • Apply a thin, even coat using a 6-10 mm nap roller cover, pad applicator or a nylon/polyester brush at a spread rate of 47-56 m2 per 3.67 L. Use long, even strokes in one direction to avoid lap lines.
  • Since concrete varies in texture/porosity, two coats may be required for uniform colour appearance. Apply a second coat (in a criss-cross direction) if uniformity is needed. Recoat after 2-4 hours. Periodic touch-ups may be necessary.

Dry Time

  • Longer dry time required in cooler temperatures and in higher humidity.
  • Allow 24 hours for light foot traffic.
  • Park tires on corrugated cardboard for 14 days after applying stain. After two weeks, dry stained surface may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent.

Disposal

  • To recycle or properly dispose of product in your community, contact your household refuse collection service.
