Color or gloss may be affected by humidity, low temperatures, chemical exposure or sodium vapor lighting. Product will yellow in the presence of UV light.
For best results use a 1/4” or 3/8” nap roller.
Slab on grade requires moisture barrier
Substrate temperature must be 5°F above dew point. All new concrete must be cured for at least 30 days Product color will vary from batch to batch. Use only product from the same batch for an entire job.
Improper mixing or too thick of an application may result in product failure.
Light or bright colors (white, safety colors etc.) may require multiple coats or a topcoat to achieve a satisfactory hide, depending on the substrate.
