  1. Apply Liquid Grind by plastic tank sprayer.
  2. Spray product at a rate of 150 sq. ft. per gallon.
  3. Agitate material with 175 rpm floor machine with a brush attachment or black maintenance pad. The use of a power scrubber for larger applications is desirable. For interior projects, the use of a stiff bristle brush will suffice.
  4. Remove light residue with clean water, then check for desired profile. For a deeper profile, allow the surface to dry, then reapply using the same procedures.
  5. Protect surrounding areas from overspray ie: walls, glass, equipment and always wear safety glasses and protective gloves. For polished concrete, apply Liquid Grind liberally, allow the surface to dwell for 1-2 minutes, then initiate your first grind.
  6. For the final rinse, use water liberally to remove any leftover material. Check with your local laws and regulations in regards to disposal.
