What does wet-on-wet mean? Wet-on-wet means that the second coat is applied while the first coat is still wet. Two coats of the Siloxa-Tek 8510 are required wet-on-wet. The second coat is applied immediately after the first coat while the first coat is still wet, since the Siloxa-Tek 8510 is a hydrophobic product it will try to repel the second coat if the second coat is applied after the first coat has dried.
Can I walk on the first coat to apply the second coat? Yes, you can walk on the first coat to apply the second coat. Since the Siloxa-Tek 8510 is a penetrating sealer it will dry invisible and will not show footprints.
Can I paint after sealing? In order to continue repelling oils and staining we do not recommend painting over the Siloxa-Tek 8510.
Does the concrete need to be dry before sealing? Yes, the concrete needs to be as dry as possible before sealing. We recommend the moisture content of the concrete be less than 4%wt. It is recommended to wait at least 24-48 hours after rain and pressure washing before sealing.
What is the difference between Siloxa-Tek 8505 and Siloxa-Tek 8510? The Siloxa-Tek 8505 is water based water, salt and oil repellent whereas the Siloxa-Tek 8510 is a solvent based water, salt and oil repellent.
What can I use to apply this product? The Siloxa-Tek 8510 can be applied with a 3/8" nap paint roller or a brush.
How do I get oil stains out of my concrete?
We recommend a highly concentrated, oil busting dish soap, such as Dawn. Squirt it over the stain and spread it around to cover the entire affected area. Let it sit for about an hour, then mop up the dish soap and oil with a paper towel.
