- Any surface receiving a cement-based coating must be clean, cured, sound and profiled.
- Make sure that temperatures will remain between 50 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit and that there will be no precipitation in the applied areas for a 48 hour period following application.
- Add 3-1/2 – 6 quarts water for every 45 lb bag to a 5 gal bucket and mix in any integral color.
- Slowly introduce SureBroom while continuously mixing and mix for a minimum of 1 minute once all product has been emptied into the container. Scrape the sides of the bucket to make sure there are no “dry pockets” that didn’t get mixed properly.
- Mist the surface of the concrete with water ahead of any areas about to receive SureBroom.
- SureBroom concrete broom overlay can be applied by trowel, squeegee or boom depending upon desired texture.
- If you need a second coat of SureBroom concrete broom overlay, simply wait until the surface is properly cured – approx 2-6 hours. A second coat can be applied same as the first coat. Make sure to scrape away excess material from first coat before applying the finish.
- Once the concrete broom overlay surface has dried and cured sufficiently (approx 2-6 hours), it can accept stains and secondary colorants, and is also ready to receive a sealer. Typical applications would utilize an acrylic sealer such as Super WB or Colortec Pigmented Acrylic Sealer.
