White spots on the concrete wax surface

  •       If your surface is very uneven and has low spots, the wax can tend to pool when applied too heavy. Where it pools in a low spot, it can become milky due to being too thick. The tell-tale is the white areas will look like round(ish) spots
  •     If there was remaining moisture on the surface or just inside the pores that might have trapped under the wax application. Moisture needs to dry out completely or as it evaporates it will cloud under the coat(s) of wax, leading to a hazy or milky appearance.
  •        If the wax was applied to a concrete surface below 60° F. A cold floor will cause wax to remain as white/milky as it was when first applied. The colder the surface the whiter it will look. Wax should be applied to a surface temp of 60 degrees or higher and, for best results, the wax should temper to within 5-7 degrees of floor temp.

Can white spots be removed from dry concrete floor wax?

Unfortunately, here is nothing that can be put on wax to cause it to clear. You can attempt clearing with a highspeed buffer. However, you will most likely need to strip the wax in the bad areas and reapply. As an attempt to avoid a larger project, if you are in cold weather, you might consider setting a space heater around the milky areas for a few hours and see if it has a clearing effect.

How-To Guide

Printable ProWax Polish™ How-To Guide

Step 1: Preparation

  • Cover areas at risk of over-spray with plastic drop cloth.
  • Remove oils, dirt, and debris using scrub brush and ProClean Degreaser™.
  • Allow the sealer to thoroughly dry before application.

Step 2: Application

Coverage rate is approximately 500 square feet per gallon (two thin coats). Coverage rates may vary based on concrete texture, surface porosity, and application method.

NOTE: ProWax Polish™ is sensitive to temperature. Before applying, allow it to acclimate to the climate of the surface area

location. Only apply when surface temperature is between 60°F (16°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.

General Application:

  • Using a sponge mop, microfiber push mop, or a floor coater, dampen the applicator in warm water and wring out excess moisture.
  • Begin applying at a far corner to maintain a clear path to exit.
  • Wet the applicator in ProWax Polish™, then place on floor at starting point, pushing first coat of wax in one direction only (do not pull in opposite direction).
  • Apply first thin coat and angle applicator slightly toward inside edge so any excess wax will runoff to unwaxed space, picked up on next pass.
    • Maintain thin and even application.
    • Re-dip applicator in ProWax Polish™ as needed.
    • With each pass, maintain a slight overlap of previous pass until floor is coated.
  • Allow 12 hours between coats (maximum of two thin coats).
    • Use thumbnail to see if coat dents or scratches (if so, allow more time to cure).
    • Apply second thin coat in the opposite direction following the same method.

WAIT UNTIL CURED:

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

Pro Tips:

  • ProWax Polish™ is for interior use only and not to be applied in garages or other areas exposed to moisture.

Cleanup:

  • Clean tools and supplies with ProClean Degreaser™ and warm water before sealer has cured.
  • Clean tools and supplies with ProWax Polish™ Remover after sealer has cured.

Maintenance:

  • Clean ProWax Polish™ floor with warm water (if necessary, only use mild non-ammonia-based cleaning products).
  • Protect finish every two years with ProWax Polish™ or spot treat high-traffic areas as needed.
  • ProWax Polish™ Gloss Floor Wax may be buffed with high-speed buffer (may require additional coats).

Tools & Supplies:

  • Sponge mop, microfiber push mop, or floor coater
  • Plastic drop cloth
