    AcquaTint™ is a low VOC, easy to apply, cost effective staining option to improve the look of interior concrete floors. AcquaTint™ is a colored concrete sealer so it has the same protective benefits as clear sealers with the color added bonus. AcquaTint™ is not paint so it will not completely cover concrete imperfections.

    WHERE TO APPLY ACQUATINT™ 

    New or existing interior concrete surfaces such as: basements, kitchens, living rooms, and bathrooms.


    WHEN NOT TO APPLY ACQUATINT™

    DO NOT apply AcquaTint onto exterior, rough or highly porous concrete surfaces.


    SURFACE PREPARATION

    ·          New concrete must cure for a minimum of 30 days

    ·          Floors that have been previously painted must be stripped using a paint & sealer stripper

    ·          For better color adhesion, open up the concrete with an etching solution, such as Hard Troweled Floor Pre-Treatment

    ·          Tip: Use Spiked Shoes during etching solution application to avoid shoe prints etched into the concrete surface

    ·          Remove dirt and debris using a Concrete Cleaner & Degreaser Concentrate

    ·          Clean floor thoroughly and make sure it is completely rinsed and dry before staining

    ·          Protect surrounding areas from backplash with drop cloths or firm cardboard

    ·          When working with multiple colors, do not apply tape to surfaces recently coated with stain or sealer, as adhesive may remove the coatings



    APPLICATION 

    ·       Shake AcquaTint bottle thoroughly

    ·        Pour AcquaTint into paint tray

    ·        Important: Test the color first, using a small corner area of your concrete slab

    ·        Use a 3/8" nap roller to apply your first coat in a north-south direction

    ·        Tip: Wear chemical resistant Spiked Shoes to prevent foot prints

    ·        Tip: Do not apply pressure to the roller - this can cause streaking. Let the roller's weight do the work

    ·        Allow 12 hours to dry

    ·        Tip: Use a thumbnail to see if the initial coat dents or scratches; if so, allow more time to dry (cure)

    ·        Apply second coat in the same manner as described above, except in an east-west direction

    ·        Tip: If AcquaTint  puddles immediately back roll with the 3/8" nap roller (soak in excess and wring out excess)

    ·        Do not walk on wet AcquaTint
