  • 160. Troubleshooting Concern Solution Abrasion Stain will wear as well as the concrete Asphalt Not yet approved for asphalt Blotchy Acid Stain Solid stains will cover differences, creating a uniform finish Bricks / Pavers Stains can be used on unsealed brick and paving stones. Need preparation. Cleaning up a spill on concrete If still wet, clean stain with a wet cloth immediately. If dried, use ES 2000 and hot water pressure washer. Concrete looks glossy after installing Slight sheen may occur immediately after installing. Sheen will diminish within 30 days and will look more like integral colored concrete. Company Concrete Preparation DC Products System Biz Dev
  • 161. Troubleshooting Concern Solution Cracks in concrete Stain will not fill cracks, even small ones. Repaired cracks will telegraph through the stain and may be more visible than before the repair. Efflorescence Since stain is breathable, minerals leech through concrete due to hydration, etc. May need to increase frequency of maintenance, which includes cleaning and staining the surface more. Flaking / Delamination The 3 most common reasons are poor preparation, new concrete and excessive moisture. Poor preparation can be attributed to failure to address existing or potential problems before installing stain. New concrete problems can be due to the hydration and curing process. Reapplying stain may be required to maintain stain on new concrete under 4 years old. Excessive moisture should be addressed. Company Concrete Preparation DC Products System Biz Dev
  • 162. Troubleshooting Concern Solution Hard-troweled Concrete Du to lack of porosity, most sealers and stains do not bond to the concrete unless it is profiled. Profiling can be done chemically or mechanically. Stain is not recommended for slick/glazed surfaces unless profiled. High traffic areas Stain is designed as a maintenance product. It can be applied as often as needed to keep high-traffic areas looking new. Painted or sealed surfaces Hot water pressure washing and / or EasyStrip. Consider diamond grinding. Company Concrete Preparation DC Products System Biz Dev
  • 163. Troubleshooting Concern Solution Pigment streaks Caused by insufficient mixing. Use a bristle brush to break up pigments. Broom out on concrete. Pools Apply Maintenance Sealer to protect stain from harsh chemicals and salts. Use grit to increase traction. Preparation for surrounding area Protect any walls and adjacent areas where staining is not desired Retaining walls and vertical concrete Stains may be applied to properly prepared vertical concrete. Careful consideration and caution should be taken due to low viscosity. Company Concrete Preparation DC Products System Biz Dev
  • 164. Troubleshooting Concern Solution Sealed Concrete, including “Cure & Seal” products If concrete is sealed or a curing compound has been used, remove with EasyStrip before application. Slip Use NewLook sealer with grit. Stain may decrease static co-efficient of friction, causing surface to be slightly more slippery when wet. Stain discolored in corners Caused by not being re-broomed adequately. Re-apply stain and rebroom properly. Top coats / overlayments On set overlay, apply stain right away. If stain is not applied several days after set, lightly clean surface. If overlay is not porous, acid wash. Company Concrete Preparation DC Products System Biz Dev
  • 165. Troubleshooting Concern Solution Color does not match sample Different concrete textures may contribute to slight variations in finished color appearance. If color is drastically different, contact NewLook. It’s suggested that stain be tested before installing for whole job. New concrete Not all concrete surfaces are the same. Significant differences exist between new and old concrete. Precautions should be taken to ensure that the concrete surface is prepped correctly. It should not be assumed that new concrete is clean and porous. Texture differences Stain will not change texture of concrete. If concrete is worn or weathered in spots or the surface has been acid etched irregularly, those spots may be visible after application.
