Application:
Pretreatment:
The floor must be clean and dry - max. 10 % RH. If the concrete has been steel 
trowelled to make the surface impenetrable, thorough grinding is recommended (pls. 
see below).

Apply Efadeck, series 0454, without thinning.

Since Efadeck 0454 not only coats the surface, but also penetrates and strengthens 
the concrete, two coats are recommended. The second coat should be applied, no 
later than 24 hours after the first.

Provide generous ventilation during application and drying. Insufficient ventilation may 
lead to gloss differences in the finished product.

Grinding of concrete floors:
Prior to painting a concrete floor, it is necessary to check if the concrete will allow the 
paint to penetrate and adhere. This may be done by placing drops of water on the 
concrete surface and observe if the drops remain as pearls on the surface, or if the 
concrete surface absorbs the water. If the water penetrates the concrete surface, the 
floor will be ready to paint after cleaning and vacuuming. If the water remains as pearls 
on the surface of the concrete, the concrete must be ground with a suitable floor 
grinder or shot blasted. The grinding must be through enough to allow the water 
droplets to penetrate into the concrete.
