Highly versatile and easy to apply, the stain lets you achieve a natural look with one color, or take it to the next level with multiple colors or patterns. Durable formula provides long-lasting decorative color while protecting from weather and household-chemical damage.

  • Usage
    Great for use on properly prepared interior and exterior concrete or masonry floors such as patios, walkways, pool decks, living spaces and basements.
  • Prep
    All surfaces must be clean, dry and free of all loose, peeling paint or contaminants. Do not apply over surface treated with water repellent sealers. Bare concrete: Allow 30 days minimum for new concrete to cure before painting. Clean and etch new or bare concrete with Fast Prep® Cleaner, Degreaser & Etcher. Follow all Fast Prep label instructions. Previously painted/Stained concrete: Strip off all old coating and then follow bare concrete instructions.
  • Application
    Avoid application in direct sunlight or onto hot concrete surfaces. Mix well before and during use. Intermix cans of the same color. Dampen concrete thoroughly with water; remove any standing water or puddles. Use a pump sprayer set to a fine-spray pattern. Apply stain to small sections (4' x 4') at a time, spraying in a random circular pattern. Work quickly to maintain a wet edge. For a more uniform appearance, immediately back-roll wet areas with a 3/8" nap roller. Do not let stain “puddle” on surface. Allow to dry 4 hours before deciding if another coat is needed. A second coat will yield a darker, more uniform color. TIP: For a more varied appearance, choose a 2-color effect. Spray a second color onto the first wet coat of stain in a random pattern, but do not back-roll.
