Safe Tread CLEAR can be applied at surface temperatures between 600F and 1100F. Application is not recommended when surface temperature is below 600F or soon to fall below that temperature. Prepare surfaces by pressure washing and removal of all dirt, grease, loose paint, rust, efflorescence, dead wood fibers or other contaminants. Etch new concrete after 30 day curing, lightly sand fiberglass gel coat. Ceramic tiles must be acid etched to remove the glassy finish prior to coating. All surfaces must be clean, dry and “paint ready” before application. Stir Safe Tread Clear to incorporate all the non skid particles and create a homogenous material. Stir again if product sits without agitation for one hour.
Mask off area to be coated to maintain clean edge detail. Check weather conditions to be certain rain or dew is not imminent before product has the opportunity to dry fully after application. Stir well before using. Apply product evenly with a ¼” to ½” nap roller or quality paint brush. Dilute if needed with clean water and dilute sparingly. For heavier traffic areas, apply a second coat when dry to the touch. Clean up spills and tools with water.
To clean the surface and maintain the beauty of Safe Tread CLEAR, light pressure rinsing is generally sufficient. If needed, use general purpose cleaners such as: Tri Sodium Phosphate (TSP), Laundry Detergent (Tide Powder), Citrus Orange Cleaners, Formula 409, Simple Green or similar type products to remove oily deposits or other foreign matter. For best results apply cleaner at recommended dilution rate and scrub lightly with a stiff bristle deck brush. Rinse thoroughly when cleaning is complete.
