Easy Application

The Deck Mix AE with Fibers available from Metro Sealant is easy to apply, simply add water at a rate of 3.25 quarts per 80-pound bag. Using a mechanical mixer rather than attempting to mix substrate by hand is recommended. For a good bond, ensure the surface where it will be applied is clean; once applied no special curing is needed. It’s important to note that with lower surface temperatures, it will take a longer time to set and a shorter time with higher temperatures.

Important Note: Since Deck Mix AE with Fibers contains Portland Cement and Free Silica, it’s important not to breathe in the dust and proper safety measures should be taken to ensure this doesn’t happen.
