DCI Concrete Overlay is a durable, ultra-strong, and easy-to-apply add water only mix. Ideal for decorative concrete projects indoors and out including:
• Resurface Old, Damaged or Soiled Concrete for significantly less than the cost of removal
• Cost Effective Alternative to Poured Concrete Countertops
• Patch and Repair Holes or Cracks with DCI Concrete Patching Compound
• Suitable for Stamped, Stenciled or Artistic Finishes
Coverage and Application: DCI Concrete Overlay covers approximately 25 sq. ft. at 1/4″, 50 sq. ft. at 1/8″ or 100-130 sq. ft. for a skim coat per 50 lb. box depending on surface conditions. The typical pot life for overlay is approximately 30-35 minutes. Adding cold rather than room temperature water will extend the pot life by up to 15 minutes. Applying overlay on hot concrete or in temperatures over 90F could result in delamination or similar problems. In hot, dry conditions, reduce the concrete temperature by dampening it with water prior to application. Mist the overlay with water to extend working time if required.
• For a smooth appearance, finish the overlay with a magic trowel.
• For a textured finish, handwork the overlay with a pool trowel.
• For vertical surfaces and stencil, spray DCI Smooth Overlay with a drywall texture gun and smooth with a pool or magic trowel.
Concrete Overlay Textures: Select Complete Texture for stamping, trowel stenciling or as a primer coat on previously stamped or tiled surfaces. Select Smooth Texture for smooth troweled-down or sprayed applications using a hopper gun at low psi for a super smooth texture and high workability. Perfect for smooth finish flooring, spray-on stenciling, and vertical applications.
