Prep & Prime
Proper surface preparation is critical to the success of all SEAL-KRETE coatings. The surface should be clean, dry, sound and free of dirt, dust, oil, wax and grease. You may need an oil stain remover such as SEAL-KRETE® Oil Stain Remover to lift stubborn oil stains. Pressure-washing is recommended.
BARE CONCRETE: Concrete must have cured for a minimum of 30 days. Etch smooth-finished concrete (such as basement or garage floors) with a concrete etching solution like SEAL-KRETE Clean-N-Etch. Note: If etching with muriatic acid the area must be neutralized before proceeding.
PAINTED SURFACES: For use over one-part water-based coatings only; not recommended over acid-based stains or oil-based coatings. Freshly painted surfaces must have cured for a minimum of 72 hours. Paint must be sound (not blistering or peeling). Existing painted surfaces should be cleaned with a solution of Trisodium Phosphate (TSP) and water. Rinse well and allow to dry.
SEAL-KRETE Clear-Seal Concrete Protective Sealer is ready to use; do not dilute. Stir gently; do not shake. Apply in light, even coats. One coat is recommended; however, over porous surfaces (like saltillo tile) or when a higher sheen is desired, apply a second coat. Note: Sealer goes on milkywhite but dries clear.
Roller: Dampen roller, remove excess water, then saturate roller with product. Keep a wet edge while rolling. Do not allow to puddle, foam or run. (Use a 1/4” nap for smooth surfaces, 3/8” nap for rough or porous surfaces.)
Pump Sprayer: Set at a fine spray and apply using a circular motion. To eliminate puddling or to achieve a more uniform finish, backroll immediately after spraying.
Coverage: 150-300 sq. ft. per gallon, depending on surface porosity.
