Surfaces must be thoroughly clean*. Using a pressure washer to clean the surface? Do not use a setting above 1750 psi, to avoid damaging the concrete. The surface must be thoroughly dry prior to painting. Surface porosity is important for proper product adhesion. For highly troweled or extremely smooth bare concrete, treat it with DRYLOK® Etch** (liquid or powder formula) or muriatic acid according to the manufacturer’s directions. Rinse the surface and allow it to dry.


Schedule your project when both air and surface temperatures are above 50°F and, for best results, wait for a dry (rain-free) period. Avoid applying in direct sunlight. Stir thoroughly before and during application. When using 2 or more containers of the same color, mix them together to ensure color uniformity. On dry, windy days, lightly mist the surface with a pump sprayer to minimize lap marks. Apply 1 coat of DRYLOK® Concrete Stain & Toner using a brush, a quarter-inch or three-eighths-inch nap roller, a foam roller or a sprayer. If spraying, coats should be dry brushed or back rolled for a uniform appearance. Allow 1 hour drying time. One coat is required to achieve a semi-opaque, non-slip flat finish. An additional coat will produce a darker, more opaque color. On a more porous surface, an additional coat may be applied. DRYLOK® Concrete Stain & Toner may be used on unsealed, stamped concrete. The surface contour may cause the toner to puddle and require back brushing to eliminate the issue.

Allow to dry for 4 hours before subjecting to light foot traffic, and for 24 hours before subjecting to heavy foot traffic. Allow 5 days drying time before subjecting to automobile traffic. If a second coat is desired, allow the first coat to dry for 4 hours before applying.

DRYLOK® Concrete Stain and Toner may be topcoated with DRYLOK® WetLook High Gloss Sealer or DRYLOK® Concrete Protector for additional surface protection.


Dispose of contaminated absorbent, container and unused contents in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.
