How can I keep my floor, patio, pool deck, garage, etc from being slippery?
H&C recommends Sharkgrip Slip Resistant Additive for all surfaces where slipping is a concern. Pool decks and garage floors are especially susceptible to slipping. Simply stir Sharkgrip Slip Resistant Additive to any sealer or stain, it stays suspended in the coating, but occasional stirring is recommended. SharkGrip may make a gloss finish a bit duller, so keep that in mind. Shield-Crete kits have a packet of anti-slip aggregate included; simply stir this into the mixture once the two components have been combined.
How do I prepare my surface for stains and sealers?
Use H&C Cleaner Degreaser to remove grease and oil stains. It will increase the coating’s ability to bond with the surface by providing a clean substrate.
My surface is clean, but water is still beading, what do I do?
Use H&C Etching Solution to open the pores of the concrete so that H&C Stains and Sealers can bond properly with the substrate.
What products require acid etching?
It is always best to read the H&C product data page for surface preparation instructions.
