Staining Exterior Concrete Floors
Tinted Concrete Sealers must be vigorously shaken and thoroughly combined before attempting to apply.
For best results, shake to combine in the container, pour the contents into a 5 gallon bucket and mix using a paint paddle and drill motor on low speed.
Solvent-based sealers can be mixed in their original 5 gallon container.
Water-based sealers are preferred for occupied homes or offices and for all basements applications or any space with low ventilation.
Always use caution when applying solvent-based sealers, particularly indoors.
Wear a respirator while applying the sealer and make certain the area is well ventilated to the outside during application and curing process.
The method used to apply tinted sealer depends on the type of surface and the variety of sealer used.
Two thin coats are recommended for outdoor concrete. Apply 1-2 coats of clear sealer over the tinted sealer for enhanced durability and more uniform wear on outdoor concrete.
