Traditional solid stains require two coats to fully hide the wood grain underneath. This coating makes it ideal for moderately weathered deck and patio surfaces as well as newer deck and patio surfaces. RockSolid 6X Deck Coat can fill hairline cracks, unlike traditional solid stains.

    What surfaces can I apply RockSolid 6X Deck Coat to?

    Wood: RockSolid 6X Deck Coat 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 6X Deck Coat is recommended for use on moderately worn wood surfaces. New wood needs to weather at least 6 months before application.

    Concrete: RockSolid 6X Deck Coat should only be applied to structurally sound broom swept or porous concrete. It is recommended for use on moderately worn 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.
