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.
