Latex Base DRYLOK Masonry Waterproofer is a low odor, ready- mixed masonry

Masonry surfaces must be clean and free from dirt, dust, grease,
oil, form release compound, frost or paint. Patch all holes or cracks
with DRYLOK Fast Plug, a fast setting hydraulic cement, and smooth the
patch evenly with the surface around it. Check the joint where the floor
and wall meet and fill any breaks with DRYLOK Fast Plug. EFFLORESCENCE,
a white, powdery, crystal-like deposit visible on the masonry surface
must be removed. DRYLOK ETCH or muriatic acid, used according to manufacturer’s
directions, are effective efflorescence removal agents. All masonry
surfaces are subject to occurrences of efflorescence. This tough, alkali-resistant
coating may be applied on slightly damp surfaces but best results are
obtained when applied on dry surfaces.
THOROUGHLY BEFORE AND DURING APPLICATION. DO NOT THIN. Paint only when
air and surface temperatures are 50°F or higher. Apply Latex Base
DRYLOK Masonry Waterproofer directly on bare masonry. For best waterproofing
results, wait for a dry (rain-free) period before application. Apply
first coat with DRYLOK BRUSH or good quality nylon bristle brush working
the WATERPROOFER into the pores of the masonry - avoid excessive brushing
(see COVERAGE). APPLY TWO COATS. Allow to dry 3 hours between coats.
The second coat may be applied by brush, roller or spray.

for the first coat and up to 125 sq. ft. per gallon for succeeding coats.

If leaking is still present after two coats, it indicates that
pores or pinholes are still open. These areas should be painted again.
When painting the inside of concrete fish ponds or birdbaths, allow Latex
Base DRYLOK Masonry Waterproofer to dry at least one week before filling
with water. If desired, a high quality latex paint can be applied over
DRYLOK after 24 hours for decorative purposes.
