It is recommended that you wait 28 days for your concrete to fully cure before applying any of our flooring systems.
The time it takes for things to dry varies depending on the temperature and air circulation. If you’re working on an interior project, it’s advisable to come back the next day and pick up where you left off.
Most of our systems can be installed in 1 or 2 days with next-day return to serivce.
Avoid applying coatings when the temperature is below 55 degrees Fahrenheit or when temps are 95 F or higher. Ideal bonding set times may not be possible on blazing hot or ice cold surfaces.
Use a fold and stir blade to mix the ingredients for 3-5 minutes or until the texture is smooth without any clumps.
The only things you need to clean your tools/drill are a water hose and nozzle.
Design Tape is a reinforced concrete tape that can be used for concrete decoration designs.
Depending on the type of stain you want to make, the methods vary. For example, if you want to make Rustic Concrete Wood Stain, mix 1 part stain concentrate with 4 parts water. However, if you’re going for a “Natural Mineral Stain”, first mix 1 part “Mixed Resin” with 3 parts water and then add mineral pigments into that mixture.
