Protect people, vehicles, property and any surface not to be treated from contact with the product or over spray. Avoid duct tape or other masking materials that leave adhesive residues which inhibit penetration of the color hardener.

To ensure penetration and reaction of color hardeners, the concrete surface must be clean and dry. Contaminants may prevent penetration of C2 Color Hard, leaving excess pigment on the surface. Freshly placed concrete should be at least 21 days old and sufficiently cured to support the appropriate activities before beginning floor preparation and color application. DO NOT store building materials on newly placed concrete surfaces.

Interior Concrete:

Grind starting with #50 grit (or lower) metal bond diamonds. Smooth and level the floor to achieve the desired finish. Do not exceed #200 grit resin bond diamonds before application. Do not grind or polish after applying C2 Color Hard.

Exterior Trowel-Finished or Broom-Finished Concrete:

Remove any curing compounds using C2 Remove. Clean the concrete with C2 Safe Prep to open the surface pores and ensure more uniform coloring.

After cleaning, lightly spray random areas of the floor or pavement with clean water. If surface does not wet uniformly, more prep is needed.

Remove dust and debris using a floor scrubbing machine and fresh water. A low-pressure power washer may be used on textured or exterior surfaces. Let wet surfaces dry.

Protect new concrete from all construction activities before color-hardening. Do not store building materials on newly placed concrete surfaces. Prevent standing water.

Concrete recently treated with a penetrating water repellent or ?salt screen? may not accept C2 Color Hard. Always test.
