Exterior Concrete Masonry

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be cured, clean, sound, dry and free of all dirt, dust, efflorescence, wax, oil, grease, chalk and any other contamination that would interfere with new coating adhesion. New masonry and mortar must cure for a minimum of 30 days at 72°F (22°C) prior to coating application. Level all surface projections and mortar spatters. Remove all soluble salts. Performance will be directly related to the degree of surface preparation.
