Decorating your driveway gives your house instant curb appeal. SEAL-KRETE Floor-Tex Textured Coating is durable and decorative. It’s available in 38 colors to make the most boring driveway look great.

Step 1 Prep & Prime:
Proper surface preparation is critical to the success of all SEAL-KRETE coatings. The surface should be clean, dry, sound and free of dirt, dust, oil, wax and grease. You may need an oil stain remover such as Krud Kutter Oil Grabber to lift stubborn oil stains.

Bare Concrete: Concrete must have cured for a minimum of 30 days before application. Etch the surface with SEAL-KRETE Clean-N-Etch to allow for proper penetration and adhesion. Etching is especially important for smooth-troweled concrete surfaces (like carports, garage and basement floors) and is also recommended for rough-finished surfaces. After etching, rinse the surface thoroughly and let dry. For best adhesion results, apply one thin coat of SEAL-KRETE Lock-Down™ Concrete Bonding Primer.

Previously Stained Or Painted Concrete: For use over one-part water-based coatings only; not recommended over oil-based coatings. Remove loose or peeling paint and degloss surface by sanding (150–200 grit paper).Follow with a general cleaning. Rinse thoroughly and let dry. Then coat the surface with SEAL-KRETE Lock-Down Concrete Bonding Primer.


Step 2 Apply Paint:

SEAL-KRETE Epoxy Seal comes as a tint base or premixed in light or dark gray. It can be tinted to 38 different colors.  This product is ready to use; do not dilute. Use only when air and surface temperatures are 55° to 90°F (13° to 32°C). Additional dry time is needed in lower temperatures or when relative humidity is more than 50%.

If more than one gallon is used, intermix all product to ensure color uniformity; stir well. Apply a very thin coat with a roller** or nylon-polyester brush. Wait 4–6 hours.*** Apply second coat in a direction perpendicular to the first.

** Use 1/4” nap for smooth-troweled surface, 3/8” nap for broom-finished surface, 1/2” nap for rough or textured surface.

  
Step 3 Protect Your Investment:

For added protection and durability, apply a high quality clear acrylic finish such as SEAL-KRETE Clear-Seal – available in both satin and gloss sheens.

Epoxy-Seal Coverage: 300-500 sq. ft. per gallon depending on surface porosity.

Maintenance

Allow 30 days before cleaning surface. Do not use abrasive cleaners or pressure washers on surface.
