How-To Guide

Printable AcquaTint™ How-To Guide

Step 1: Preparation

  • Cover areas at risk of over-spray with plastic drop cloth.
  • Newly poured concrete must cure for 30 days before application.
  • For existing concrete:
    • Remove paint or previously applied sealer using Soy Gel Stripper.
    • Remove carpet glue or other adhesives using Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover.
    • Remove any oils, dirt, debris, Soy Gel Stripper, or Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover using scrub brush and ProClean Degreaser™.
  • Verify absorption by pouring a cup of water in various areas. If not absorbed within five minutes, etch surface with CitrusEtch™, then neutralize surface with ProClean Neutralizer™ and rinse thoroughly.
  • Allow concrete to thoroughly dry before application.

Step 2: Application

Coverage rate is approximately 200 square feet per gallon (two thin coats). Coverage rates may vary based on concrete texture, surface porosity, and application method.

NOTE: Only apply AcquaTint™ when surface temperature is between 40°F (4°C) and 95°F (35°C).

Caution: May be harmful if swallowed or ingested. Contact with skin can cause mild irritation. Avoid contact with eyes.

Option 1: Spraying (preferred method)

  • Remove all filters from pump-up sprayer.
  • Shake AcquaTint™ well before pouring into sprayer.
  • Spray AcquaTint™ on surface in slightly circular motions with irregular overlaps.
    • Shake sprayer tank from side to side often to prevent color from settling.
    • Spray thin coats to avoid puddling.
  • Allow 12 hours before applying second coat (maximum of two thin coats).
    • Use a thumbnail to see if coat dents or scratches; if so, allow more time to cure.
  • Apply a second coat following same method.

Option 2: Rolling

  • Shake AcquaTint™ well before pouring into paint tray.
  • Use 3/8” nap roller to apply first thin coat and roll in one direction only.
    • Do not apply pressure to roller as this will cause streaking (let weight of roller do the work).
  • Allow 12 hours before applying second coat (maximum of two thin coats).
    • Use a thumbnail to see if coat dents or scratches; if so, allow more time to cure.
  • Apply a second coat in opposite direction following same method.

WAIT UNTIL CURED:

  • 24 hours before foot traffic or placing heavy furniture
  • 48 hours before driving over surface or allowing parked vehicles

Step 3: Seal & Protect Finish

  • For exterior: Allow AcquaTint™ to cure for 12 hours and then apply one thin coat of AcquaSeal™.
  • For interior: Allow AcquaTint™ to cure for 48 hours and then apply two thin coats of ProWax Polish™.
  • For additional application instructions, see AcquaSeal™ and ProWax Polish™ How-To Guides.

Pro Tips:

  • Begin spraying at a far corner to maintain a clear path to exit.
  • If sealer is pooling or appears uneven, backroll with a 3/8th nap roller.
    • Roller must be wetted in sealer with excess rung out before back rolling.
  • To avoid droplets dripping onto surface: before releasing sprayer trigger, immediately place tip in a bucket.

Cleanup:

  • Uncured AcquaTint™: Clean tools and supplies with ProClean™ Degreaser and warm water.
  • Cured AcquaTint™: Clean tools and supplies with Soy Gel Stripper.

Maintenance:

  • For exterior: Protect finish every two years with AcquaSeal™ or as needed.
  • For interior: Protect finish every two years with ProWax Polish™ or spot treat high-traffic areas as needed.
  • For additional application instructions, see AcquaSeal™ and ProWax Polish™ How-To Guides.

Tools & Supplies:

  • Pump-up sprayer
  • 3/8th Nap roller and paint tray (if rolling)
  • Plastic drop cloth
  • Scrub brush
  • Spiked shoes (if using CitrusEtch™)
