  • Usage
    Interior or exterior bare concrete
  • Prep
    Ensure your surface is clean, dry and free of all loose, peeling paint or contaminants. Areas where ponding water is evident should be leveled prior to application. Bare concrete: Allow 60 days minimum for new concrete to cure before painting. Clean, degrease and etch new or bare concrete with Valspar® Fast Prep®. Previously painted surfaces: Clean with an all-purpose cleaner (TSP or substitute), and remove gloss from shiny surfaces by sanding or using a chemical deglosser.
  • Application
    Mix well before and during use. Apply only when surface and air temperature are 10–32 °C (50–90 °F). Use a premium-quality, polyester brush for small area (stairs, etc.). For large areas, pour coating in a long, continuous bead across the “shorter side” of the surface. Spread the product uniformly with a premium-quality, 1/4" or 3/8" nap roller and finish with long, even strokes in one direction
