Patio Paving Stain - NOVELTY - available 04/2015
Concrete garden stones and slabs. Not recommended for new garden stones or non-absorbing substrates like wash concrete or natural stone.
4-8 m2/l applied once on concrete stone or slab (depending on the absorbency of the substrate).
Brush (T6), roller (S10) or spray. Knapsack spray or similar is recommended for spray application.
Surface is dry (walkable) after few hours. Drying is affected by the porosity of the surface and the amount of stain used. Possible second coat can be applied after the surface is dry, after few hours, depending on conditions.
Stir the stain well before and during the use of the product. Apply with a brush, roller or knapsack spray. When using a knapsack spray, finish with a roller or brush, when necessary, to ensure that the product penetrates into the substrate pores. Apply evenly and without interruption to avoid overlapping. Avoid applying as thick layers as with paint.
Undyed (concrete grey) paving stones and slabs:
Choose the desired color from the Patio Paving Stone color selection. Apply 1-2 coats depending on the absorbency of the substrate and desired end result. Should you apply several coats, thinning for the first coat is recommended. Two coats are recommended for best results.
Industrially dyed paving stones and slabs:
Choose a color as close to the stones as possible. Apply 1-2 coats depending on the absorbency of the substrate and desired end result. Normally one coat is sufficient.
Paving stones and slabs are exposed to continuous weathering and they may be subject to severe mechanical stress. Therefore they might also need maintenance treatment almost every year.
Reserve enough stain of the same batch for one uniform surface to avoid possible color differences. The product is translucent and therefore unsuitable to change color of previously industrially dyed paving stone or slab. Recommended only for facelift. Stones or slabs of different age might turn out differently in terms of color. Impurities like motor oil or crystallization of salts have an effect on the final color.
At the earliest after 1 month from the treatment a dirty surface can be cleaned with Tikkurila Huoltopesu Maintenance Cleaner (1 part of Huoltopesu to 10 parts of water). Rinse the surfaces and allow to dry.
