SURFACE PREPARATION:

New Painting Concrete

  1. Allow new masonry to dry for 14 to 28 days under normal weather conditions. Surface to be painted should be clean and dry, free from oil, grease, dust, dirt, contaminants, and all loose grit and mortar. 
  2. Treat new masonry with a solution of 1 part BOYSEN® Masonry Neutralizer #44 diluted in 16 parts water, applying liberally by brush or roller. 
  3. Let it stand overnight before rinsing with water or rough sanding to remove white crystals that form on the surface. 
  4. Let dry before painting.

Repainting Concrete

Remove all loose, scaling, flaking and peeling off paint using BOYSEN® Paint and Varnish Remover #141, wire brushing, scraping, or water blasting. Let it dry. For chalking old paint, use BOYSEN® Masonry Surface Conditioner #304 as primer. In case of mildew infestation, treat with a fungicidal wash solution by swabbing or brushing. To ensure proper treatment, allow to remain on the surface for 24 hours. Let dry.
