How to Apply Siloxa-Tek 8510 Concrete Sealer

Step by step application instructions detailing how to apply Siloxa-Tek 8510 concrete sealer.

For enhanced performance on horizontal concrete surfaces use a densifying primer like the Lithi-Tek 4500, wait 7 days and then apply the Siloxa-Tek 8510.

  1. Make sure new concrete has been cured for 28 days
  2. Properly clean the concrete and make sure its dry
  3. If a previous sealer was used, remove it or make sure it has worn away
  4. Tools: 3/8” nap paint roller, solvent resistant sprayer, and/or paint brush
  5. Application temperature: 35F-95F
  6. Stir/mix well
  7. Pour into a sprayer or paint tray
  8. Apply one thin, even coat to an area of about 100 square feet or less.
  9. Immediately go back and apply a second coat while the first coat is still wet

You can walk on the first coat of the Siloxa-Tek 8510 while it is still wet to apply the second coat. A wet-on-wet application technique is used to drive penetration of the sealer into the concrete.

  1. Let the sealer dry for 6 hours before walking, 24 hours before allowing vehicle traffic and protect from rain for 24 hours.
