The coverage will vary depending on the surface and the overall desired look. For applications over Westcoat’s acrylic cements, coverage is approximately 150-600 square feet per gallon. For applications directly over concrete, coverage is approximately 600-1000 square feet per gallon. Product performs best if applied in thin even coats. For best results, filter prior to spraying.
Before beginning any project, it is recommended that a mock-up be installed to help indicate the overall look and finish. SC-35 can be applied on dry or slightly damp concrete or over acrylic cements. SC35 can be applied using a variety of methods, depending on the desired look and effect. SC-35 can be applied with: a pump sprayer, airless sprayer, pressure pot, gravity feed HVLP, sponge, brush, cotton rag or broom for application methods. For best results, a pump sprayer with a conical tip can be used to evenly distribute the stain. Straining or filtering the material before pouring into the sprayer, can help avoid clogging. Do not apply when temperatures are below 50F degrees or above 90F degrees. When temperatures are above 80F degrees, it may be necessary to dampen the surface prior to application, to prevent material from drying instantly. This product needs some wet time for the stain to properly penetrate the surface. Multiple colors may be applied at the same time for a variegated finish. Re-coat in ½ to 1 hour at 70F degrees, if needed. Stain is designed to be applied in one to two coats, depending on the overall look. Do not apply this material too thick, as it may affect the semi-transparent look and may prevent from proper penetration and adhesion.See More
