Instructions at a glance!

a summary before starting your project

Apply Art Béton renderings to a clean, stable and smooth surface (mdf, FINISH plywood, laminate countertop, gypsum with drawn joints, ceramic (leveling necessary), fiber cement, etc.)


For the application of each step, make sure you have an adequate temperature of between 18 and 25 degrees Celsius and a humidity of less than 75%. These conditions allow drying that is neither too slow nor too fast.

Follow the instructions on the labels

Step 1 - Apply the primer to the entire surface

1 coat required on a clean surface, apply with a small foam roller or brush, let dry to transparency, about 45 minutes * Two coats are required if the primer is absorbed quickly when applied to a very porous surface.

Step 2 - Concrete Coating
(2 coats)

Mix the concrete with water, use a mixer, scrape the edges well for a smooth texture. Apply 2 to 3 thin layers (less than 1mm) with a trowel, wait about 1 hour between each layer. Apply within 5 hours of mixing, always cover the boiler. Sand the next day with a rotary sander, start at 120, then at 180, 350 for a very smooth finish.

Step 3 - The sealer
(3 options) 1 to 2 coats

- Wall sealer, dry 1 to 3 hours or more
- Countertop sealer, dry 1 to 3 hours or more
- Impregnating sealant, must dry 8 hours or more

Apply one coat with a foam or short nap roller, without surplus and without bubbles.

Step 4 - The varnish or the urethane
(6 options) 2 to 4 coasts

- Matt wall varnish
- Satin wall varnish
- Matte countertop varnish
- Satin countertop varnish

2 to 4 coats are necessary, use a short nap roller, apply without surplus and without bubbles. Wait about 1 hour to 3 hours between coats or more, sand by hand with 220 between coats

- Matte urethane
- Satin urethane

see the procedure for applying urethane
