Q: I purchased all Plush products. After 2 years I have developed small area that have lifted leaving the concrete exposed. The concrete was etched and primed before painting. Is this product the correct product to use once I have scrape off the loose paint?

A: The patch binder kit can be used to blend in the peeling areas. The typical reasons for adhesion failure to concrete are preparation of the concrete, or lack of a vapor barrier below the concrete. We would recommend cutting the coating with a knife back to a point where it is adhered, applying additional primer, and then applying the patch binder kit. We would recommend reducing the sand load when you mix the ingredients of the kit together so that you can blend the material easier.

A: Typically 24 hours is sufficient.

Q: If my asphalt pad was recently sealed, can I apply Plush over it or would I have to use primer first?

Q: What color is the product (neutral means what exactly? ) Can home Depot add color to the Plush acrylic resurface material Or do I have to put some type of paint over it so the basketball court looks good

5 gal. Acrylic Resurfacer ?

A:Concrete courts should be primed with PT Primer X prior to using the Plush Acrylic Resurfacer product.

Q: IJust poured a new slab today, and relief joints will be saw-cut in two days. Will this fill the saw-cut joints? Should I still cut those joints or what is the recommended process to prep a new slab for sport court painting? I understand the next steps are 1. Acrylic Resurfacer 2. PT Primer X 3. Plush Paint. No one talks about how to fill control joints – all slabs have them. What is step 0? Thanks!

A: The saw cuts should be filled with paintable acrylic crack filler. Sika makes a good material for this. Just to clarify your steps, the concrete needs to cure for 28 days before anything can be done. The surface should be acid etched and powerwashed after that period. The PT Primer X is the first material to go down, not he acrylic resurfacer.
