How to Apply Epoxyshield Stain Additive For Premium Clear
For best results, clean 10x10 foot (3x3 meters) sections at a time. Completely wash, rinse, and squeegee each section before moving on to the next. When all the sections have been completed in this manner, then rerinse and squeegee the entire floor. When the floor is dry, rub your fingers on the concrete and check for a white film. If a white dust or powder is detected, then repeat the rinsing process being sure to thoroughly scrub during the rinse. Once the concrete is free of surface residue, you are ready to begin application of the coating. All pilot lights or open flames in the area must be extinguished due to the flammability of the solvents in the coating. Pilot lights or open flames must remain extinguished for a minimum of 24 hours following application of the EpoxyShield Premium Clear coating.
Previously Coated Floors : Make sure the floor is clean and dry. The EpoxyShield Low VOC Premium Clear coating is designed for use over the EpoxyShield Garage Floor finish or EpoxyShield Professional finish. The EpoxyShield Low VOC Premium Clear coating can be applied over the Garage Floor finish after 24 hours. The Low VOC Premium Clear coating can be applied over the Professional Floor finish between 16 hours and 5 days. For other previous coatings, use a wire brush to remove any loose or peeling paint or stain. If floor is sealed, the sealer will have to be removed by grinding or shot blasting. To ensure proper adhesion, scuff sand the entire surface.
Allow new concrete to cure for a minimum of 28 days. Check the garage floor for conditions that might interfere with proper adhesion (see directions sheet). Remove any oil spots 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.
For best results when using the Concrete Etch, the concrete should be damp, but free of puddles. Mix the entire contents of the Concrete Etch granules with 2 gallons (3.79 liters) of water. Do not add Concrete Etch directly to paint. Use a plastic sprinkling can to evenly distribute the Concrete Etch solution. Scrub the floor with a stiff bristle brush and make sure the floor stays wet during this process until you are ready to rinse. Pay special attention to the area where the vehicle tires normally stand. Continue to scrub while rinsing to ensure all contaminates are washed away. Squeegee off excessive water or puddles and allow to dry.
