DESCRIPTION: Spray Texture is a decorative concrete system consisting of preblended
cement, aggregate and admixtures. The product can be toweled or sprayed horizontally or
vertically onto existing concrete, cement board, concrete blocks or bricks. Spray Texture
can be integrally tinted by using a pre-measured pigment pack and/or stained with a
Chemical Stain to create a variety of colors and patterns.

SURFACE PREPARATION: All surfaces shall be clean and free of dirt, dust, paint,
sealers, form release, curing agents, grease, oil or any thing that would inhibit mixed
material from coming into contact with the open pores of the substrate. Any anti-adherent
must be removed mechanically. Pressure washing, sand blasting, water blasting, grinding
and shot blasting are a few good methods for removal. On existing surfaces not burdened
with these anti-adherents, pressure washing coupled with mild acid etching should be
considered, depending on the contaminants to be removed, especially on smooth, steel
troweled or formed concrete. After these procedures have been done, apply Primer at a rate of 150-200 sq.ft. per gallon depending on the porosity of the concrete. Blow or broom off any puddle primer before the application of the cementitious material. Allow the primer to dry completely before application of the spray texture. The primer will re-emulsify one time only, and will not re-wet again, providing a tenacious bond of the Spray Texture to the surface in which it is applied.

MIXING AND APPPLICATION:
During the mixing procedures, depending on jobsite conditions, use 4.5-6 quarts of liquid
to each 50lb. bag of spray texture. The liquid mixture consist of the primer (same as
bonding material as stated above) and potable water. The mixing proportions are as
follows: Equal parts of potable water and primer. Note: Always add the Spray Texture to
the liquid solution, never the water/ primer solution to the Spray Texture. Mix material
until a lump free consistency is achieved. Spray Texture can be applied by trowel,
squeegee, gauge rake, and also a hopper gun. The material can also be tinted various
colors to achieve special effects.


PRECAUTIONS: Apply Spray Texture in ambient temperatures between 50F – 85F,
normally in the cool of the day. Allow between 4-7 days before vehicular traffic is
allowed on the surface. The structural integrity of the product is only as good as the
surface in which it is applied. A field test mock-up is highly suggested so as to obtain an
approved sample from your prospective client.

WARNING: Contains Portland cement; avoid eye contact or prolonged contact with
skin. Wash thoroughly after handling. In cast of eye contact, flush with water for 15
minutes, consult a physician immediately. Keep out of reach of children. Contains free
silica – DO NOT breathe dust. May cause delayed lung injury. Follow OSHA safety and
health standards for crystalline silica (quartz).

THINK GREEN.  We use recycled concrete in lieu of gravel as aggregate in our concrete.  It doesn't cost us any extra; thus, it doesn't cost you any extra.  As far as structure, the recycled concrete is just as strong as the gravel.  We do what we can to save the limited resources we have on earth.
