The exact number of Sundek concrete coating layers varies depending on factors such as surface condition and the kind of pattern chosen. Sundek literature says its Classic concrete coating process requires three to five applications.
Bullion Coatings, an industry leader in decorative concrete solutions, uses four to eight layers of Sundek concrete coating. The Sundek concrete coating process begins by applying one or more primer coats directly to the surface, which is left to dry. To complete the process, an installer removes loose paint chips from the surface then applies one or more layers of a nonporous, acrylic finish coat to create the desired effect.
