Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
Preparation & PrimeBlank space if empty.

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 concrete & masonry cleaner and etcher 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 concrete & masonry paint stripper product.
  • Option 2- To recoat over an existing coating, remove any loose or peeling paint and scuff sand the surface.
  • Clean previously coated surfaces in sound condition.
  • Clean and etch any bare concrete surface.
  • 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.
ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • DO NOT THIN. Intermix all cans of same product to ensure color uniformity. Stir stain before and occasionally during application.
  • Use product when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C).
  • Apply a thin, even coat using a 1/4"-3/8" nap roller cover, pad applicator or a nylon/polyester brush at a spread rate of 400-600 sq. ft. (37-56 m2) per gallon. Use long, even strokes in one direction to avoid lap lines.
  • Since concrete varies in texture/porosity, two coats may be required for uniform color 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 TimeBlank space if empty.
  • Longer dry time required in cooler temperatures and in higher humidity.
