  • FauxCrete™ may be easily polished by fine sanding for a very smooth, refined surface.
  • Easily repairable, it can be fine sanded and then patched or filled.
  • There are several basic methods for applying the material depending on the application. Floors require the standard or coarse grade of FauxCrete™, while countertops many utilize a finish coat of the finer grades.
  • There are many decorative methods of applying FauxCrete™ products including a fresco approach, a sponge‐on/trowel‐down method and the application of multiple colors at one time.
  • To fill existing, deep grout lines or large cracks, tightly apply a coat of FauxCrete™ Coarse over the surface and let dry thoroughly. This may be tinted with up to 20% of SetCoat®. When dry, sand and smooth using an orbital sander.
  • FauxCrete™ Fine may be thinned 20% with tap water for creative stencil effects.
  • Always make a sample to ensure the desired result.
  • FauxCrete™ can be tinted with SetCoat®, FauxCrème Color™ or FauxCrème Color Concentrate™. Add up to 5% of colorant; over-saturation of color can soften the product.
  • When the surface is properly prepared, FauxCrete™ can be applied to furniture, floors, pool decks, decorative countertops and even glass.
  • FauxCrete™ can be top coated with thin coats of a number of Faux Effects® products for other interior applications.;
  • Clean the substrate thoroughly. Pressure wash exterior surfaces. Allow all surfaces to dry completely.
  • Apply 2 coats of any color SetCoat®; allow 4 hours drying time between coats and 24 hours after the final coat.
  • It is suggested that the base coat of FauxCrete™ be more opaque. Add 10‐20% SetCoat® Neutral White or other color SetCoat® to FauxCrete™. Use this mixture to level the surface and fill in any nicks, shallow crevices, small holes, and grout lines. Use FauxCrete™ Coarse to fill in heavier grout lines or deeper surface imperfections. Using a stainless steel trowel, apply a thin even coat approximately 1/16” to 1/8” thick. If attempting to fill deeper holes, it is better to build the material in multiple fine layers. In layers, FauxCrete™ will maintain its physical properties and have better impact strength. Allow FauxCrete™ to dry thoroughly.
  • The best visual effects are achieved by utilizing the translucent nature of the material lightly tinted with FauxCreme Color™. Apply lightly tinted FauxCrete™ onto the entire area. If grout lines are desired, it is suggested to keep grout tape lines thin. For a marble block pattern where the blocks abut each other, pencil in block lines atop the dry FauxCrete™, then color glaze the entire area. This is a very important speed function approach for large‐scale projects. Low tack tape does not bond well to FauxCrete™; use a higher tack tape to mask off grout lines or the appropriate patterns when desired.
  • Colored stencil design work may be applied next using FauxCrete™, FauxCrete™ Fine or FauxCrete™ Super Fine over a base coat of FauxCrete™. A final light coat of un-tinted translucent FauxCrete™ Fine may be applied over stencil work.
  • To seal FauxCrete™ and make it stain resistant, apply one coat of a 50/50 mixture of C‐500 and water. Rouge into the surface being careful not to let the mixture puddle on the finish. Let dry at least 12 hours; then, apply a coat of C‐500 full strength. Let dry 72 hours before use.
