Concrete and Masonry Painting Prep Made Easy

Looking for a beautiful, long-lasting finish for your concrete and masonry surfaces?  The power is in the preparation. BEHR has come up with affordable, quick and easy solutions for properly preparing concrete and masonry surfaces prior to coating with its line of Concrete and Masonry Prep Products.

Before now, homeowners might have been tempted to skip preparation due to the need for multiple and time-consuming steps. Or they didn’t want to use products containing strong acids or corrosive solutions that could be harmful to the environment.

BEHR’s new lineup of concrete and masonry prep products marries performance and ease. They’re environmentally safe, biodegradable and easy to use. They rinse off easily with water without leaving any white residue behind. And best of all, BEHR reduces the number of products and prep steps you need to ensure better adhesion and compatibility with all BEHR Concrete and Masonry Coatings. Here are three products to make the job easy and ensure great results:

  • Concrete Cleaners and DegreaserBEHR Concrete & Masonry Cleaner/Degreaser is a low-odor, citrus-based, non-toxic formula with improved performance to remove even tough, hard-to-clean stains from interior or exterior concrete and masonry surfaces. Before painting or staining, this product prepares brick, concrete, stone, tile or cement floors, and it can also be used to clean greasy garage floors, asphalt or concrete driveways, walks, patios and even showers.
  • BEHR Concrete & Masonry Cleaner/Etcher cleans and etches bare concrete and masonry surfaces in one step, to improve penetration and adhesion of paints, stains, and sealers. It will also remove difficult stains such as grease, oil, auto fluids, rust, and red clay from any concrete or masonry surface.
  • BEHR Concrete & Masonry Stripper saves time because it can remove multiple layers of paint with one application. The high-viscosity gel formulation is a hardworking yet safe alternative to strippers containing harsh ingredients such as methylene chloride.
