I agree with Charles, check the container for directions. In general,
I think the concrete should be clean and dry. An acid wash with
muriatic acid is sometimes suggested followed by washing it down with
water and letting it dry completely, but be careful with this as it
(acid) can be dangerous if used improperly.
If you want more information, just google search for "latex bondage"!
....eep! no! I was just kidding about the search phrase!!!
I always sweep any particles and dust off the concrete with a stiff bristle
broom, then lightly spray the surface with water, using a nozzle on a garden
hose, then brushing on the latex.. The bonding solution seems to bond better
that way. I don't know if your latex bond is the same stuff I used, which
looked and smelled like regular Elmers White Glue-All, but had a fancy
name. Whatever, it worked well.
