M3P: An inorganic mineral silicate based paint that provides long-term protection and water repellency without changing the natural appearance of the substrate.
Best Suited: Protection from water and carbonation for structures that are difficult to maintain or impractical to recoat in the future. Provides a natural “not painted” appearance. Use when the object is to blend the color of the substrate to be more uniform

M3P Overcoat: Highly breathable hybrid mineral silicate/acrylic coating for application over painted or unpainted surfaces providing a natural non-gloss finish.
Best Suited: Previously painted substrates, particularly silicone and elastomeric coatings which after multiple application reduce vapor transmission to low levels. On unpainted surfaces to preserve natural appearance while hiding significant color variations in the substrate.

Conpro Lastic: An elastomeric waterproof breathable membrane for vertical exterior surfaces.
Best Suited: Structures that require a membrane waterproofing treatment because of cracks, mortar joints, porosity and other physical characteristics that allow water, carbonation and other contaminants into the substrate.

Color Coat: A water-based acrylic coating for concrete and masonry substrates.
Best Suited: Ideal for weather protection of concrete and stucco. High vapor transmission makes this coating well suited for nosing and underside of balconies. Good performance to cost ratio.

Super Color Stain: A penetrating opaque water-based stain that provides uniform color to concrete and masonry.
Best Suited: Horizontal and vertical surfaces that require water repellency as well as uniform color.

TerraColor: Formulated to match colored glaze finishes.
Best Suited: Repairing and restoring terracotta and brick.

Elastideck: A flexible, breathable waterproof membrane for horizontal surfaces.
Best Suited: Balconies, walkways and slab -on-grade surfaces. Excellent for pedestrian and light vehicular traffic.

Super Color Stain: A penetrating opaque water-based stain that provides uniform color to concrete and masonry.
Best Suited: Apply to Elastideck in the same color to provide resistance to dirt pick up and staining.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW WHEN CHOOSING A COLOR AND COATING

The actual color of the coating and stain may vary from the color samples in this card.
Always order a wet sample to be applied to the intended substrate. Allow to cure for a minimum of 24 hours before evaluating.
Stains are generally used in a color similar to the substrate and tend to be more natural looking compared to paints.
Paints are generally used to change the color of the substrate.
Elastomeric coatings are used to waterproof substrates that have movement (cracking or when carbonation is a concern).
The curing rate will affect the final color of Conpro Stucco. Substrate absorption, temperature, wind, moisture and the changing angle of the sun or obstructions that block the sun while curing will contribute to color variation of cementitious coating.
Always apply a sample of the material to the structure to determine actual coverage and the degree of adhesion (ASTM D3359). Allow one week curing before conducting adhesion test.
Plastermix applied to concrete prior to a coating will dramatically improve the overall appearance by creating a uniform, bug-hole free surface.
