Restore 10X Application Instructions
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS THOROUGHLY PRIOR TO BEGINNING TINT BASE:
MUST BE TINTED BEFORE USE USE OF THE RESTORE ROLLER IS REQUIRED FOR PROPER APPLICATION (one roller for every 8 gallons)
WHERE TO USE: DECK & CONCRETE RESTORE® 10X is a problem solving coating that is ten times thicker than ordinary paint and is formulated to repair and resurface wood, most composite decks and broom swept concrete. DECK & CONCRETE RESTORE 10X fills cracks (up to ¼”), locks down splinters, and creates a uniform textured finish that is slip-resistant. DECK & CONCRETE RESTORE 10X is for horizontal surfaces and will restore old wood and concrete surfaces to look new. For vertical surfaces such as deck posts, railings, balusters, and to cut in around edges or visible areas between deck boards use RESTORE SOLID ACRYLIC STAIN or DECK & CONCRETE RESTORE 4X. FOR EXTERIOR USE ONLY.
DECKS: For use on horizontal wood and most composite deck surfaces. New wood decks need to age at least six months before application. Some composite decking is engineered with moisture repellant or sealer that may prevent proper adhesion. Be sure to follow specific manufacturer’s recommendation before applying to any composite decking.
CONCRETE: For use on broom swept or porous concrete surfaces. DO NOT USE ON SMOOTH OR FLOATED CONCRETE. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR DRIVEWAYS, GARAGES OR OTHER AREAS WITH VEHICULAR TRAFFIC.
COVERAGE: One container of DECK & CONCRETE RESTORE 10X (3.75 gallon container) will cover approximately 100 square feet, with two coats. Volume after tinting is approximately four US gallons.
PREPARATION: Long-term adhesion and durability can be impaired by a poorly prepared surface.
STEP 1 – LIGHT REPAIRS: Raised nail heads, deck screws or loose deck boards should be secured. If galvanized coating has been removed prime nail/screw heads with a rusty metal primer. Remove loose splinters and replace severely damaged or rotting boards. Fill larger cracks using RESTORE CRACK FILLER™ or similar acrylic, non-silicone filler. Allow to dry.
STEP 2 – CLEAN: Clean the surface using a brush and RESTORE DECK & CONCRETE CLEANER™. The surface must be porous, clean and free of dirt, grease, mildew and organic growth to ensure product bonding and adhesion. For tough stains, grease spots and embedded dirt a pressure washer may provide the best results. Loose paint needs to be scraped or sanded (use 50 grit sand paper).
STEP 3 – TEST SURFACE FOR APPLICATION: RESIDUAL SEALANTS OR FINISHES may be present on the deck and are not always visible. ALL SEALANTS/FINISHES MUST BE REMOVED for the coating to adhere properly. To check, conduct a splash test by sprinkling water on multiple areas of the surface. If the water absorbs rapidly into the surface, the surface is ready to be coated. If the water beads, puddles or is not absorbed, the surface is sealed and not ready to coat. If the surface is sealed or finished, remove the sealer/finish with a deck stripper or sand paper (use 50 grit). Clean again with a brush and RESTORE DECK & CONCRETE CLEANER and conduct the splash test again. Continue this process until the water is absorbed by the wood in all test areas. Let the surface dry completely before application.
PRECAUTIONS & TEMPERATURE SAFEGUARDS: DO NOT APPLY IF RAIN IS EXPECTED WITHIN 48 HOURS OF APPLICATION. Apply when the surface and air temperature is between 50 and 90 degrees F for a full 72 hours (day and night).

APPLICATION TRIM AND VERTICAL SURFACES Begin by coating vertical surfaces such as deck posts, railings, or balusters. Before rolling, cut in around edges with a brush and coat visible areas between deck boards. For best results, use RESTORE SOLID ACRYLIC STAIN OR DECK & CONCRETE RESTORE 4X. TWO THICK COATS OF DECK & CONCRETE RESTORE 10X ARE REQUIRED.
STEP 1: Before use, mix material thoroughly and repeat mixing occasionally during application. When using more than one container, combine all containers to ensure color consistency.
STEP 2: Fill difficult cracks using a heavily loaded brush to dab these areas until the gaps or cracks are filled.
STEP 3: Using either a 4” or 9” RESTORE ROLLER® saturate the roller cover and roll in one direction, with a slight downward pressure to maintain texture and to push material into cracks and voids. Work to a wet edge at all times. Avoid rolling back into coated areas where drying has begun.
STEP 4: Use a putty knife or other straight edge to remove any excess coating between deck boards. Difficult areas such as warped or cupped deck boards will require rolling across the narrow width of deck board as well as the length to ensure complete coverage
STEP 5: Allow first coat to dry 4-6 hours. Drying times may vary depending on temperature and humidity.
STEP 6: Apply second coat using the same method as in STEP 3 and STEP 4.
STEP 7: Allow second coat to dry 24 hours before light foot traffic and 3-5 days before replacing furniture. If surface is tacky or soft, allow extended drying time before putting furniture or other heavy objects back in place. Full cure to a hard finish will take approximately 3-4 weeks.
FOR SMOOTHER TEXTURE: To achieve a smoother surface, first apply the first and second coat as directed with the RESTORE ROLLER. While the second coat is still wet, use a brush and lightly brush the product in the opposite direction as rolled.
CLEAN UP: DECK & CONCRETE RESTORE 10X is water based and cleans up with mild soap and water while wet.
