IMPORTANT: ALL COATING (3 KG) MUST BE FULLY MIXED TO CERTIFY THE COLOUR *

The Art Béton Coating is a real concrete coating that bonds to most surface. It is designed to be applied in two thin layers of 1mm each. Pay particular attention to the edges, apply additional thickness in order to avoid passing through the concrete during sanding.

SURFACE PREPARATION

  • Cover all joints with fi breglass tape. Apply the Art Béton Primer on all the surface to be covered. Let it dry until a clear film is formed before applying the concrete coating.
  • On ceramic or irregular surface, apply Levelling Concrete for ceramic or irregular surfaces.


PREPARING THE CONCRETE COATING

  • Wear gloves and mask. Pour the 3 kg of concrete coating into the appropriate bucket, 7 or more litres. Add 1700 ml of water. Mechanically mix until a homogeneous paste is formed. Scrape sides while mixing. Ensure a homogeneous and complete mixing.
  • *** Once mixed, the concrete sets in less than 6 hours in the bucket ***


APPLYING THE CONCRETE COATING

  • Apply a 1 mm thin layer using a concrete trowel or float. Make half circle movements in every direction using the trowel. Any gaps will be filled during the second coat. Soften rough edges using a spatula. Let it dry until colour fades (about 2 hours, use a fan to accelerate curing time). Apply a second coat making half-circle movements with the trowel, create textures if desired. A third coat may be applied if necessary.


FINISH

  • Wait until the following day for optimal drying, proceed to sand the surface using 120-grit sandpaper for the edges and a 180-grit for the rest. Use a 320-grit sandpaper for a smooth finish. Seal concrete following instructions on steps 3 and 4. Clean tools with water while concrete is still fresh
  • CLEANING: Clean instruments with water when the concrete is still fresh.
