Tips and Tricks for Coating Your Concrete Floor with Rust Bullet
- 1. Use a 3/8 inch nap roller. Do not use foam. Foam rollers tend to slide the product around as opposed to coating. 3/8 inch will provide the best coverage.
- 2. The length of the roller does not matter. You may use a roller that is anywhere from the smallest roller to the largest roller as long as it is a nap roller, and you are comfortable with the application
- 3. Start with small 4’x4′ sections at a time. This will ensure the areas are being covered evenly.
- 4. Dip the roller into the roller pan several times during application to keep a wet edge. But keep in mind to not have so much paint on the roller. You will be able to actually feel the roller sliding, as opposed to coating. When the roller slides, that means it is not a coating, and proper coverage will not be achieved.
- 5. Rolling a “W” pattern with a medium amount of pressure on the roller handle will achieve the best coverage.
- 6. Thin even coats are best! Do not assume that applying Rust Bullet in overly thick coats will give you better protection. It will not. In fact, if Rust Bullet is applied too thick, solvent popping occurs, and the coating will not cure properly.
- 7. Seeing roller marks? There are several reasons you may see roller marks with any type of coating. When using Rust Bullet as your concrete floor coating, the roller marks generally appear because the thickness of the coating is not even throughout. As you are rolling each section, watch the already coated sections for those roller marks. If they start to appear, take the roller without adding more paint, and with no pressure on the roller handle, roll over the coated surface to even the coats out. It’s like they disappear.
- 8. Even though the roller is a great method of application, Rust Bullet can also be brushed or sprayed. You may use a paint brush for edges and corners. And if spraying, we recommend an Airless sprayer with a 517-523 tip, 3000-5000 psi.
