As soon as the color hardener has absorbed moisture from the concrete beneath (noticeable by a darkening of the surface), float the surface just enough to bring the moisture through the color hardener and to achieve a “Paste”. Second Application: The second application is then applied immediately so it can absorb the moisture through the first application before it evaporates. Apply the second application at right angles to the first for more even color and thickness. Apply uniformly at a rate of 9Kg – 13.6Kg. Per 100 sq. ft. When the second application has absorbed moisture (indicated by darkening of the surface), float the surface again.
Touch up: Next, immediately apply color hard to any light areas and edges, wait for the moisture to absorb into them and float entire surface using a round edged steel Fresno. Your edging should also be done at this time. Stamp Finishes: After sufficient bleed water has evaporated from the slab, apply a coat of powdered release agent.
