1. Prepare by making sure your driveway is clean an then primed

 
Your driveway is going to need approximately a week to fully dry. So make sure you are not needing to use the driveway in any significant way for a while. Before you start, ensure that your driveway is clean of any leaves, debris or objects. 
 
Once done you will need to solution clean the driveway. We recommend using Nutech Etch. Mix the primer in a bucket of water and spread the mixture over the driveway.
 
Using a strong broom or brush, scrub the driveway. Let the mixture sit for approximately 15 minutes. Then wash the solution mixture off with a hose.

 

2. Apply painters tape to the edges (if required) and prepare the paint.

 

Before painting, make sure that you use some painters tape if there are any surfaces that you do not want to get paint on. For instance the footpath next to the driveway, or the garage door. Applying paint to a big surface requires some care at the edges.

 

Next, prepare the paint, roller and roller tray and paint brush. We recommend using Nutech Pavecoat.

 

3. Paint the driveway

 
It is best practice to start painting the driveway at the edges with a paint brush and work yourself inwards with the roller - remember to leave a gap where you can walk out and not paint yourself in. Painting the edges first allows you to be more quick and generous with the paint on the inside once the edges are completed.
 
Once you have finished one coat. You will need approximately 6-8 hours of drying time before applying the second coat. Once you have applied the second coat, you need to wait approximately one week before any heavy foot traffic or cars can go on top.

 

HAPPY PAINTING!
