Before, during and after applying the Waxed concrete coating, it is important to take certain precautions to guarantee your safety and obtain the best results.:

 Personal protection (at all times): Waxed concrete contains cement, which can cause skin irritation and allergic reactions. It is therefore essential to wear personal protective equipment, such as nitrile gloves, protective goggles and a respiratory mask, when handling and applying the product. Also, be sure to work in a well-ventilated area..


 Surface Preparation: Prior to application, ensure the surface is clean, dry and free of any dirt, grease or residue. If necessary, carry out a preliminary cleaning and eliminate any imperfections or irregularities.

 Precise application: When applying the waxed concrete coating, use a suitable trowel and take care to smooth the material evenly. Keep in mind that the edges of the trowel can be razor sharp, so handle with care.

 Drying and curing times: Strictly follow the drying and curing times recommended by the manufacturer. Avoid touching or disturbing the surface during this time to allow the Béton ciré to set properly.

 Maintenance and cleaning: After application, follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding the maintenance and cleaning of the Concrete waxed surface. Use mild cleaning products and avoid abrasive substances that could damage the coating.

By following these precautions, you will be able to work in complete safety and obtain a satisfactory final result when applying the waxed concrete coating.
