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.)

*** DO NOT APPLY OVER CONSTRUCTION PLYWOOD ***

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
