To Apply Mist the stamped area with water and apply Super-Krete Color Stain using a broom, sponge, roller, brush or filtered airless sprayer.
Shake the Color Stain container well (do NOT dilute) to ensure that all contents in the product are thoroughly mixed. If using a sprayer, filter the stain with a strainer before pouring the stain into a sprayer. It is best to pour half of the contents into the sprayer base, shake the container again, and pour the remainder of the product into the sprayer base.
Spray Color Stain on to the surface. Apply Super-Krete Color Stain only with a filtered hand pump sprayer or airless sprayer. Set airless sprayer at lowest pressure setting and use nozzle of sufficient size to prevent atomization. Use a soft flag tipped broom to further spread material and provide uniformity.
More Helpful Hints
When applying Color Stains, always use lighter colors as a base first and highlight areas if desired with darker colors. When highlighting areas for contrast, always make sure that the base color has dried (is not wet) before applying highlight colors. When mixing colors before they have dried, the colors may blend together to form all new colors. This can be done, but be sure it is the effect you are trying to achieve. Lines and joints can be enhanced using a hand-held dustless grinder or diamond blade, and can be grouted for a more dramatic appearance and to add dimension. Grouting should be done between sealer coats.
Apply stain in a light, even coast to lightly dampen surface only. Do not soak surface and don’t allow to puddle. Follow immediately with a soft, flag tipped broom to further spread material. Allow first coat to fully dry (approximately one hour) and repeat application method until uniform. Two to three coats may be required to achieve desired finished colors.
Color Tip Apply lighter colors first, allow to dry, and then highlight using darker colors. The sprayed color will flow into the low areas and create depth and enhanced texture appearance.
Heavier Traffic Area Applications
For heavier traffic areas, stain according to the standard application. Allow a 24 hour cure time. Return to apply a minimum of 2 coats of Super-Krete VOC 93 Clear Sealer S-8800.
Marbleized Finish/Mottled Look
Spray Super-Krete Color Stain directly on the substrate broom to spread the color. Spray a light mist of water. This will remove broom lines and will also aid in the spreading (mottling) of the color. Spray apply the highlight color, and then mist with water to spread (marbleize).
