Ames® products can be applied with a paint brush, a push broom, a low nap roller with a long handle or a Commercial Airless Sprayer. In addition, you will need Ames® Peel & Stick™ Seam Tape and scissors or a utility knife. For larger commercial jobs. We recommend an airless sprayer with a 3/8 inch, 150 foot hose.Click Here for Sprayer Specifications
Step 1: Prime with Ames® Super Primer™ at the rate of 1 gallon per 200 square feet. Dries in about an hour.
Step 2: Apply one or two top coats of Ames® Block & Wall® Acrylic.
We recommend three gallons per 100 square feet for water containment. Shake or stir prior to use. The application must be applied in a continuous, unbroken seal of a minimum dry thickness of no less than 30 mils (the thickness of a dime). We recommend two coats minimum, three to four is superior as more coats equals longer life. Rough surfaces will require additional product and drying time.
Weather & Drying Guidelines:
Ames® Block & Wall® is best applied between 50° to 90° F (10° to 32° C) on warm dry surfaces. For exterior applications apply when the streets are dry, the sun is in the sky and no inclement weather is forecast. Starts to dry in 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on thickness of application and weather. It continues to cure for up to 2 weeks. A slight tack is normal after drying. Block & Wall® may be re-coated or top coated when it is dry to the touch. Low temperatures, high humidity and evening and morning dew will require increased drying/curing time.
