Our 18% Acrylic Residential Concrete Floor Wax and Polish protects indoor floors sealed with an acrylic concrete sealer from wear and tear with little buildup. Residential Floor Wax is easy and quick to apply and can be used to “spot” wax in higher traffic areas. Our product does not require a buffer after application and no stripping is needed between coats.
Covers approximately 1,000 square feet per gallon per coat. For the first application after sealing, apply 2-3 thin coats. Allow for 48-72 hours dry time for floors sealed with solvent-based sealers before applying Residential or Commercial Wax.
Apply both residential and commercial waxes with a trim pad or foam mop with wringer attachment. Soak the applicator in warm water and shake or wring out excess before use. Pour wax into a paint or wallpaper tray and saturate applicator. Press out excess and push a thin milky coat onto the surface. The product will appear milky when applying but will clear as it dries. Smooth out any foaming that may appear on the surface. Allow to dry for 3-4 hours between coats. The final coat should try for 12 hours before moving furniture or heavy objects across the floor. Wash applicators with hot water and soap for future use. Store wax and floor polish in a temperature controlled space with lid tightly closed. An additional wax coat or spot-waxing will be needed every 3-8 months depending on traffic. Not be applied to rough or heavily textured indoor concrete.

Cold Temperature Warning:
Do not apply water-based sealers when surface temperatures are below 60°F with an air temperature difference of 5 degrees or less. Central heating, radiant or convection heaters, or similar heating devices should be turned off during application. In-floor heating should be set at 60-65°F before and turned off during the application process. Do not allow to freeze.
Tips for Use:
Place Teflon pads or felt tips under all chair and furniture legs. Plastic mats should be used under all rolling office chairs to preserve the decorative finish.
