Patio Tones

PATIO TONES will greatly enhance the beauty of any concrete patio or pool deck. Plain or worn concrete gives a dull and uninteresting appearance, detracting from the ambiance of the area. PATIO TONES adds life as well as protection.

PATIO TONES is also excellent for the restoration of sprayed and patterned concrete surfacing systems.

Simply make any necessary repairs, clean the deck according to label instructions, and roll on PATIO TONES. The acrylic formula lets you prepare and coat in one day. The result will be a surface that is safe, beautiful and protected.

Coverage: 90 - 125 square feet per gallon depending on surface porosity. Available in five-gallon and one-gallon containers. Two coats required on initial application.

Available in these attractive colors: Ivory, Champagne, Warm Biscuit, Silk Straw, Desert Sun, Sand Valley, Mystic Grey, and Creekstone.

Old decks will look new again with Patio Tones

All concrete surfaces should be cleaned according to the following three step cleaning process.

Step 1

Scrub area with a solution of No. 910 WASHING COMPOUND (tri-sodium phosphate) and water to remove any oil film.

Step 2

Scrub the deck with a 10% solution of muriatic acid to remove mineral deposits and open pores for penetration of PATIO TONES. Neutralize any remaining traces of acid by repeating step one.

Step 3

PATIO TONES can now be applied directly to a wet surface. However, any puddles should be dissipated. Roll on PATIO TONES using a medium nap roller equipped with an extension handle. Allow first coat to dry four hours (average) before second coat is applied. For more information refer to the label or request Technical Bulletins No. 107 and No. 141.

PATIO TONES cures overnight. You can enjoy your new surface the next day! For heavy traffic, Patio Tones may need a full 24 hour cure.

Surface Preparation

The most important aspect of coating a pool is surface preparation. Your new coating will not adhere to even the slightest oily residue such as suntan lotion, body oils, hair spray, algae or anything that comes between the pool surface and the new coating. The best method for preparing your pool is described in the following steps.

Washing Your Pool

Washing Your Pool is Important to Remove Any Existing Oil Residue The best washing solution is OLYMPIC No. 910 Pool Washing Compound (tri-sodium phosphate) mixed with warm water. NEVER use a soap-type detergent. Soap products leave a soapy film on the surface which will result in poor coating adhesion.

How to Wash Your Pool

Mix eight ounces of pool washing compound or tri-sodium phosphate to each gallon of warm water. One gallon of this solution will wash approximately 200 square feet. Dip a long handled brush in this solution and firmly scrub the pool surface in approximately 10 foot sections. Rinse off the residue with clear water immediately after scrubbing. Be careful not to allow the pool washing solution to dry on the surface. Always scrub the walls first and the floor last. The next step is acid etching.

Acid Etching - for Bare Concrete and Plaster

Acid etching is required on bare masonry surfaces like concrete or plaster. It is also effective for removing chalky residue and hard mineral deposits on a previously coated pool. Acid washing opens millions of tiny pores which allow the subsequent coating to penetrate, thus creating a secure cohesive bond. Even on previously coated pools, we heartily recommend an acid wash.

NOTE: To prevent eye Injury, NEVER pour water Into acid. ALWAYS pour acid into water and wear protective eyewear.

Mixing the Acid

Mix in a plastic bucket a ten percent solution of muriatic acid in water. Most muriatic acid is packaged at 20% or 30% strength. One gallon of 30% muriatic acid mixed with two gallons of water will yield three gallons of ten percent solution. Likewise, one gallon of 20% muriatic acid mixed with one gallon of water will yield two gallons of ten percent solution. One gallon of the ten percent solution is sufficient for etching 100 square feet of pool surface.

The Etching Procedure

Liberally brush the acid solution on the surface. The acid will bubble on the surface when applied. As soon as this bubbling ceases, rinse the solution off with clear water. The surface should feel like fine sandpaper when properly etched. Splash a small amount of water on the surface to see if it is sufficiently etched. If the water soaks in fairly quickly, the surface is properly etched. If the water stands on the surface, another etching will be required or switch to a stronger acid solution. It is of utmost importance that you wash the pool again after etching. The tri-sodium phosphate in the pool washing solution will neutralize all traces of acid left on the surface after etching. After this second washing, allow the pool to dry before coating. However, if you are using POXOPRIME II epoxy primer, you may proceed with priming the pool. POXOPRIME II is compatible with wet surfaces. Caution: Do not mix in a galvanized container.

Preparing Fiberglass Pools

To prepare a fiberglass pool for coating, sand the surface in straight lines with coarse sandpaper. (Do not use an orbital sander.) This sanding will create a mechanical bond for the epoxy coat. Once the fiberglass has been properly sanded, perform the pool washing procedure as described before. No acid washing is needed. Allow the surface to dry and you are ready to resurface your pool.
