Jump to: navigation, search


  • Apply with a trowel or blade.
  • Apply to a clean, dry substrate.
  • Apply at a coverage rate of 58 sq. ft/gallon (wet film of 25 mils) or less.
  • Full hardness is developed in 2 - 4 weeks.
  • Clean tools with soap and water.
  • Store between 50° - 80°F

Hints and Tips

  • Recommended only for rigid substrates.
  • Thin applications will generate a fine cracking pattern with fine fissures and small islands.
  • As thickness increases, the cracking pattern becomes more pronounced with larger fissures and islands.
  • For more pronounced cracking patterns, prep surface by priming with Proceed Low Absorbency Base Coat and apply one or more coats of Cracking Size. Dries to a hard, absorbent surface.
  • Optimum application conditions are 70°F and 50% relative humidity.
