Apply Acryfin

ACRYFIN®  is an acrylic polymer coating that is environmentally friendly, VOC-free, and non-toxic. ACRYFIN®  resurfaces, restores, and revives old decks, docks, porches, and concrete surfaces.

ACRYFIN® Application and Instructions

Apply primer to clean, dry wood and let sit until no tackiness. (Usually 30 – 40 minutes).

In 5-gallon bucket mix 1 gallon of Sherwin Williams Super Deck Solid Stain (other brands or types of Acrylic solid stain may be used but we recommend this one) with 1 gallon of ACRYFIN® with a high-speed paddle bit mixer.

After a few seconds of mixing the stain and resin, continue mixing and add one 12lb bag of aggregate at a moderately slow rate. After all aggregate has been added to stain and resin, continue mixing for 30 seconds or until smooth

Let sit for 1 minute then continue mixing for another 30 seconds. Make sure that all white particles are mixed in including sides of bucket. The mixture should be nice, thin and easy to apply.

Cut in using brushes or rollers. When ready to apply to main area, use ¾” nap roller covers ( thicker nap roller covers should be used when dealing with really rough surfaces or boards that are spread further apart).Make sure all voids and cracks are filled with roller or brush with the first coat.

After the first coat is dry to touch, apply second coat using same method as first coat (coverage should be greater on the second coat).

Once second coat dries enough to walk on apply ACRYFIN®  Clear UV sealer for added UV protection and stain resistance. Apply with small nap roller (1/4 or 3/8 in.).  Do not apply thick. (1 gallon should cover 400 sq ft)

The full curing time will be 3-4 days. Keep furniture, pets, plants, etc off until completely cured.

ACRYFIN® Application for Concrete

1 Apply Primer

Apply primer to clean, dry concrete area. Allow to dry for 4 or 5 hours until completely dry and not tacky. If it is a slick surface, first etch with muriatic acid, pressure wash, let dry and apply primer and let sit overnight.

2 Apply ACRYFIN ®

Apply the ACRYFIN®  coating as above using 3/8” to ½” nap roller covers.  Thin layers are what is desired to achieve thick coating to surface. Let first coat dry to the touch and then apply second coat and clear coat UV sealer..

3Curing time

Curing time should be 4 to 7 days depending on heat and humidity. The warmer the weather, the longer the curing time.
