The concrete surface must be clean and free of all loose material, oil residue, sealers or paints. Clean thoroughly by using a pressure washer with a degreaser of stripper if necessary. Etch the surface using a 1 to 4 muratic acid solution. Rinse clean and neutralize. Recommended surface preparation is to roll down Prime-It bonding agent as this improves color consistency.
MIxing Instructions (45 pound unit)
In a clean 5-gallon bucket, measure 1.25 gallons of clean water. Using a drill with a mixing wand, slowly add the dry Re-Coat to the water as you are running the mixing wand. Once you have added all the material, continue to mix thoroughly for 2 minutes to a fluid consistency with no lumps.
If you haven’t applied Prime-It, start by misting the surface with water (surface should be damp only, no standing water)
Patching & Leveling
Apply Re-Coat mix. Screed where necessary, smooth with a round edge fresno or pool trowel, keeping all tools clean and moist. Finish as desired (i.e. broom texture, etc.) Allow all patch and leveled areas to dry before applying Re-Coat (1-5 hours).
Apply the Re-Coat with squeegee, allow material to dry slightly, follow with a broom.
Note: If a great deal of patching has been done, you may need to apply a second coat over the entire area to ensure color uniformity. Wait until the first application is dry (1-3 hours) then reapply.
1 45 pound unit will cover approximately 175-250 sq. ft. broomed or squeegeed, 25 sq. ft. at 1/4″ thick.
