All DCI floor polish products are water-based and can be applied using a mop with a hand wringer or a Padco Floor Coater/Trim Pad. Two to three thin coats are recommended for the first application.
Drying time is 3-4 hours per coat. The surface should be clear with no tacky areas before proceeding to the next coat. Pour the floor polish into a paint tray rather than directly on the floor. Apply in exactly the same manner as the water-based sealer.
Allow for up to 24 hours of drying time before permitting foot traffic.
Commercial wax can be buffed after the initial application using a standard commercial buffer. Commercial wax is recommended for businesses, high-traffic areas or homes with large inside dogs. DCI Concrete Wax and Floor Polish should be re-applied once or twice per year depending on traffic. Spot- waxing is recommended for high-traffic areas as needed.
Apply DCI Concrete Countertop Wax with a soft cloth and buff with a buffer attachment or continue with the soft cloth until the surface shines. Repeat as needed. Wax is not required for outdoor countertops.
