  • If planning to topcoat, follow surface preparation outlined on the manufacturer’s label instructions.
  • For best topcoat results, use NO. 880 BEHR PREMIUM® Concrete Bonding Primer after BEHR PREMIUM Crack Filler has fully cured.

  • Shake bottle well, remove red cap, and cut a small opening on the spout.
  • Pour into crack fully filling all voids. Do not overfill as it may be hard to remove any residual filler that cures around the surface.
  • For deep cracks, an alternative filler may be used as a base layer, then top off with BEHR PREMIUM Concrete Crack Filler.
  • Carefully level off and remove any excess material leaving a flush surface. Example tools to use are small brushes, putty knifes, etc. If surface is clean, then the excess dry material can be saved and reused.
  • Use a spray bottle to lightly mist with clean water and fully saturate. Avoid puddling.
  • Large and deep cracks may be prone to slight shifting upon misting. A second fill and mist may be necessary to get a flush uniform finish.
