COVERAGE: Approximate coverage is 300 square feet per gallon. Proper application requires 2 full coats. Material losses during mixing and application will vary and must be taken into consideration. Expect less coverage on rough, porous or sandblasted surfaces.
To figure out the amount of paint you will require: Length x Width of Surface = Square Footage x 2 (2 coats) divided by 300 = gallons needed.
SUGGESTED USES: Exterior and interior steel, wood or masonry.
LIMITATIONS: Do not apply if material, substrate or ambient temperature is below 40 degrees F or above 95 degrees F.
FINISH: Gloss. For extra grit on areas such as outdoor steps, silica sand can be applied on top of the paint during application to achieve the desired texture.
SOLIDS BY WEIGHT: 54%.
WEIGHT PER GALLON: 10 Lbs. per gallon (varies by color).
AVERAGE DRY TIME: Dries to the touch in 24-36 hours. Lower temperatures & higher humidity will slow down dry times. Second coat can be applied after allowing the first coat a minimum of 24-48 hours to cure.

SURFACE PREPARATION: Concrete surfaces must be etched with a solution of 50% muriatic acid and 50% water. Etch the surface with a bristle brush or broom and then rinse with water. Next clean the area with a mixture of TSP powder and water also using a bristle brush or broom. Rinse the area thoroughly making sure that all residue from the prep materials have been removed. Allow the surface to dry for at least 24-48 hours before applying the coating. For wood or steel surfaces, clean the area with a mixture of TSP powder and water using a bristle brush or broom. Then rinse the area thoroughly making sure that all residue from the prep materials have been removed. Allow the surface to dry for at least 24-48 hours before applying the coating.
