Primer for New Concrete

WGC Technical Sheet
WGC Installation Instructions

Before the WGC Primer formula was created, any type of painting on new concrete must wait at least 30 days or moisture to dissipate enough for paint to adhere. This is because excess moisture and alkalinity in fresh concrete can cause bubbling and delamination.

You can apply WGC  as soon as concrete has cured enough that it can withstand foot traffic, usually in the next day. WGC Primer penetrates into the concrete and strengthens it to provide a barrier for outgassing.
