Dreaming of a fresh new look? How about the beauty of speckled granite. A great way to resurface interior and exterior concrete, masonry and other surfaces, Beauti-Tone Granite® is a tough stone coating that imparts excellent decorative and protective benefits on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. Great for new and existing porches, steps, pool decks, patios, walkways and entrances, garage, utility floors, basement floors, balconies, foundation walls and more, it even seals cracked concrete.

Details + Specification

  • Granite's quartz aggregate provides an extremely hard surface that is highly resistant to abrasion
  • The acrylic resins provide superior elasticity, adhesion and low water absorption
  • It can also remain breathable to permit the normal transmission of moisture vapour through the coating to assist in protecting against trapped moisture
  • Low water absorption protects against rain and snow while maintaining elasticity and superior resistance
  • Special additives protect the acrylic resins from ultra- violet rays and discolouration and assure long life, durability and performance
FEATURES:
  • Breathability
  • Low shrinkage
  • Colourfast
  • Ultra-violet brittle resistant
  • Bacteria resistant
  • Resistant to freeze/thaw conditions
  • Flexibility
  • Pre-mixed
  • Easy maintenance
  • Crack resistant
  • Alkali resistant
  • Abrasion and impact resistant
  • High resistantance to salt
DESCRIPTION:
  • 100% acrylic emulsion coating with colored quartz compounds which provide a flexible, breathable, water repellent decorative finish for long life and durability
USES:
  • Designed as finishes for stationary exterior or interior concrete, drywall and masonry floors and decks
YIELD:
  • Varies with substrate conditions, and application methods
  • Average coverage 160 sq. ft.
SURFACE PREPARATION:
  • Surface should be clean and dry, free from efflorescence, laitance, dust, dirt, loose flaking, oils, poorly bonded or glossy paint, surface sealers, salts and other contaminates which may effect adhesion and product performance
  • New masonry surfaces should be allowed to cure a minimum of 48 hours prior to application
  • Surface area should be power washed using at least 2500 psi to clear any surface contaminates
  • Smooth, new and efflorescent surfaces should be etched using a muriatic acid/water solution (2 parts water/1 part muriatic acid), follow by neutralizing surface area with a baking soda/water solution (one 500 gr. box baking soda/2 gallons of water) and rinse area thoroughly
  • When surface is dry, prime area using Granite roll-on primer (tinted to match desired Granite colour)
  • Thorough instructions are available to consumers on reverse side of removable pail label or at www. techstone.ca
MIXING:
  • Thoroughly stir contents prior to application
APPLICATION:
  • May be applied by trowel or spray equipment
  • Ambient temperatures must not be less than 5 degrees Celsius, and should not exceed 40 degress Celsius during application and for a continuous period of at least 24 hours after application
CURE TIME:
  • Dry to touch in 60 minutes, depending on atmospheric conditions
  • Protect coated surfaces for 6-8 hours prior to exposure to rain or heavy condensation - In dry conditions product cure is complete in 24 hours
SEALING:
  • Seal the fully cured Granite finish using a lint- free roller and Tech Stone Sealer (supplied in 3.78L pails)
  • Apply 2 coats: protect surface from water and other contamination between coats
  • Do not walk on surface while it is tacky
CLEAN UP:
  • Equipment can be cleaned with soap and water prior to cure of material
PRECAUTIONS:
  • In case of contact with eyes, flood eyes repeatedly with potable water and call a physician
  • DO NOT RUB EYES due to coarseness of granules
  • Wash hands thoroughly after handling
  • Do not take internally
  • KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN
  • Keep container closed. Do not use in the presence of unprotected foodstuffs
  • Product which has been frozen must be discarded
  • Dispose of unused material in accordance with local, provincial and federal guidelines
