How to Apply Rust-Oleum Epoxy Shield Penetrating Concrete Sealer?
Allow new concrete to cure for a minimum of 28 days. Do not use on asphalt. Remove any oil spots, grease or spills and wash the floor with EpoxyShield Heavy Duty Degreaser or a suitable detergent or degreasing solution. Thoroughly rinse with fresh water. Then etch the floor using Rust-Oleum Concrete Etch or Rust-Oleum 108 Clean & Etch. Note: If the concrete is not completely rinsed, the sealer may not properly penetrate the concrete.
If the floor is sealed, the sealer will have to be removed by grinding or shot blasting. To determine if a concrete sealer is present, drip a small amount of water onto various areas on the surface. If the water beads up, a sealer is present and EpoxyShield Penetrating Concrete Sealer cannot be used. Previously Coated Floors: EpoxyShield Penetrating Concrete Sealer cannot be used on previously painted floors. If the floor is previously painted, all paint must be removed prior to sealing.
EpoxyShield Penetrating Concrete Sealer is ready to use. Apply only when air, material, and surface temperatures are between 60-85°F (15-29°C) and the surface temperature is at least 5°F (3°C) above the dew point. The relative humidity should not be greater than 85%. Mix thoroughly before application by stirring or gentle shaking. Apply with a high-quality pump sprayer (course spray tip), a ⅜” nap roller, foam roller, bristle brush or foam brush. Choose the best applicator for size of project and texture of concrete. Do not pour sealer on concrete; work from roller tray or container. When using a brush or roller, pour a portion of the material into a lined paint pan. Immediately begin to cut in the perimeter of the floor along the wall, or other areas where a roller cannot reach, using a brush or edger before beginning roller application. Limit the application to 10x10 foot (3.04x3.04m) sections at a time. Maintain a wet edge to prevent lap marks and gloss variations. Make all final passes in the same direction to ensure uniform appearance.
