All areas to be coated should be free of oil, grease, dirt, loose paint, and efflorescence. This can be accomplished by acid-etching and pressure washing at 2,500 — 3,000 psi. Make sure the acid has been neutralized and all residue is thoroughly rinsed off prior to application. Do not apply over standing water.


In a clean five (5) gallon pail, thoroughly mix a fifty (50) pounds bag of dry mix with approximately four (4) quarts of cool potable water until the mixture is free of lumps. ONLY MIX AMOUNT OF MATERIAL THAT CAN APPLIED WITHIN THIRTY (30) MINUTES OF MIXING. Let the mix sit for two (2) minutes, then re-mix again with a drill for one (1) minute. Mix on slow speed to ensure air is not entrained into the mix.


Immediately after mixing, fill the hopper with mix and begin spraying, covering approximately 75 percent of concrete surface. Depending on the temperature, substrate, or exposure to the sun, you can begin to knock down material with a trowel as soon as the material is sprayed. Test surface for dryness — the surface may be dry in approximately one (1) hour. Once the surface is dry, lightly scrape to remove any loose material or ridges. Using a roller or airless sprayer, apply two (2) thin coats of SGM Color Guard. Make sure to let the first coat dry completely.


Minimum curing is achieved in eight (8) hours. It is best to keep foot traffic off until the next day. Depending on the temperature, allow two (2) days for automobile or heavy traffic use.


Each bag of dry mix covers approximately 150—225 sq. ft. Desired texture and thickness affect coverage rates.

  • NOTE: Coverage may vary according to condition and porosity of the substrate.


Southcrete™ One-Step Spray Deck should only be applied to concrete surfaces that have cured for at least seven (7) days. Do not apply when the surface or air temperature is below 50°F (fifty degrees Fahrenheit) or above 100°F (100 degrees Fahrenheit). Do not apply if frost is expected within 24 hours. Application thickness should not exceed ¼ inch on driveway surfaces and high traffic areas a knockdown finish is recommended.
