Safety is our priority. Our Industrial Textured Grit Outdoor sticker is specifically designed for outdoor use. It has an extremely strong adhesive strength that will stick firmly on rough, uneven surfaces like unsealed concrete, unsealed asphalt, and paving bricks. We protect it with a special textured matte coating that has been tested for slip resistance and skid resistance per UL 410 and ASTM E303 respectively, which are highly regarded safety requirements by 3M. The coating adds a unique grip texture to the sticker making it considerably stronger and exceptionally safer.
Keeping the condition of your concrete sticker is key to ensure your message is highly visible. You can apply the sticker in a high foot traffic area like a sidewalk, but ensure that no heavy equipment like snow plows or shovels come in contact with it to avoid from being damaged. Also, make sure the surface is not highly bumpy as this will prevent the sticker from adhering properly. The chosen area must be in good condition, clean and completely dry before application. A surface temperature of 70° F (21° C) is recommended as heat will help with the adhesion.
Clean the surface. Remove any grease, gum, or weeds, and sweep away any pebbles or debris from the application surface, ensuring it is completely dry.
Place sticker to the floor in sections. Start by peeling back 1-2" of the liner and pressing it to the floor using firm pressure and a stiff, nylon-bristled brush. Continue placing the rest of the sticker by removing around 12" of the liner each time. Keeping the sticker close to the floor, use the brush, firm pressure and overlapping strokes to adhere the sticker to the floor. Make sure to start from the center and move towards the outer edges.
Brush over the edges of the sticker. Finally, check that the entire sticker has been applied properly by brushing over the edges and corners one last time to ensure a good edge seal.
Gently pull one edge or corner toward you at a 90 degree angle. You may use a scraper to help lift the edges.
