Concrete Coatings, Inc. recommends applying dye upon completion of your 400-grit pass. A second application of dye may be applied after the 800-grit pass to maintain and intensify color.
Cleaning is essential to ensure proper adhesion of sealers. We recommend the use of an auto-scrubber or white pad on a buffer to remove excess dye residue.
The penetrating agent allows for better penetration and adhesion of the dye, increasing color performance and mottling.
The penetrating agent should be added in most instances, especially very tight, power-troweled or polished surfaces.
QuickDye™ will yield 200-400 sq. ft. per gallon, depending on various factors including concrete porosity and finish.
