    What surfaces can I apply RockSolid 2X Solid Stain to?

    Wood: RockSolid 2X Solid Stain should only be applied on structurally sound wood and most composite surfaces. Some composite decking is engineered with moisture repellants or sealers that may prevent proper adhesion. Be sure to follow specific manufacturer’s recommendation before applying to any composite decking. RockSolid 2X Solid Stain is recommended for use on lightly worn wood surfaces. New wood needs to weather at least 6 months before application.

    Concrete: RockSolid 2X Solid Stain should only be applied to structurally sound broom swept or porous concrete. It is recommended for use on newer concrete surfaces. New concrete surfaces need to cure 30 days before application.

    NOT FOR USE ON: Smooth or floated concrete, fiberglass, tile, and metal surfaces. These surfaces will not allow for proper adhesion. Do not use on driveways, garages, or other areas with vehicular traffic.
