    WHERE TO APPLY PORTICO STAIN

    New or exisiting exterior concrete paver surfaces such as: Patios, Driveways, Pool Decks, and Walkways.

    WHEN NOT TO APPLY PORTICO STAIN

    DO NOT apply Portico Stain in poorly ventilated areas and/or very smooth concrete surfaces.


    SURFACE PREPARATION

    ·          New concrete must cure for a minimum of 30 days, and may be influenced by wet or dry weather

    ·          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 Portico Paver Stain bottle thoroughly

    ·        Pour the stain directly into a pump sprayer

    ·        Continue to shake periodically during application to ensure particulate does not settle at the bottom

    ·        Tip: Practice spraying on a piece of cardboard or newspaper

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

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

    ·        Apply Portico Paver Stain using a random, straight or circular motion until a "wet" appearance is achieved

    ·        Allow 6 - 8 hours to dry before applying additional coats


    SEALER APPLICATION

    ·         To complete the staining, a protective finish must be applied. Use a premium, easy-to-use sealer such as Direct Colors Acrylic Concrete Sealers

    ·         Allow stain to dry 8 hours before applying  a high quiality solvent-based acrylic concrete sealer
