SURFACE PREPARATION

Freshly Finished Concrete: no preparation required.

Existing Concrete: sweep, scrub, or strip concrete to remove any surface contamination or film. Product must be able to penetrate the surface without hindrance.

APPLICATION

Single application only. Apply with low-pressure sprayer (power), rollers, brush, or fine/soft bristled broom.

COVERAGE RATE

Approximately 200 square feet per gallon; 5 meters per liter. Coverage depends on the the temperature and porosity of the concrete.

CLEAN UP

Soap and water.

DRYING TIME

One to three hours. The surface may be used as soon as the application is complete and the surface is again dry to the touch. Newly laid surfaces require the normal hardening period.

APPEARANCE AFTER APPLICATION

Smooth Troweled Concrete: permanent, marble-like sheen develops within 4-12 months. Burnishing the concrete surface with a propane burnisher will accelerate the sheen.

All Other Concrete Surfaces: retention of natural finish.

TEMPERATURE LIMITS

Applicable in temperatures up to 135º F/57ºC or as low as 35ºF/1.7ºC if the concrete is covered by plastic and completely protected from freezing for a period of 6 days.

THINNERS, PRIMERS AND PAINTING

No thinners or primers required.

Painting on New Concrete: allow at least 7 drying days before applying quality grade paint on existing concrete

Painting on Existing Concrete: allow 28 days for proper curing before painting new concrete.

COLORED CONCRETE

Apply to colored concrete only after the slab is fully cured. Do not get on glass or other finished surface.

LIMITATIONS

Do Not Apply the Ashford Formula to:

Lightweight block or other extremely porous masonry containing actual holes or air pockets.

Areas previously treated with curing or sealing agents, unless these coatings have completely worn off or have been removed by chemical or mechanical means.
