Gulf Synthetics' DeckRevive is a non-toxic, water-based coating that cross-links with exterior paint to form a hard, durable covering that protects any wood substrate. Simply mix it with one-gallon of colored paint to rejuvenate old worn out, dried out, beat up decks, fences, siding, furniture or anything made of wood.
DeckRevive is a two-part additive, with one part powder and one part liquid. Mix together along with one gallon of exterior acrylic paint in your choice of color in a Gloss sheen. It comes with a five-gallon bucket for easy and convenient mixing. With two coats applied, the coverage will be approximately 200 square feet per kit depending on surface porosity and texture.
PLEASE NOTE: For proper adhesion, PermaBond is REQUIRED as a primer for this product.
NOTE: Permafill (for deep holes and cracks) has been discontinued, Gulf Synthetics recommends Quikrete Quick Setting Filler as a replacement for Permafill.
If you believe in miracles, this product is up for nomination. It's truly a deck and dock saver. It transforms old decks, docks, fences, etc., into like-new beautiful skid-resistant surfaces that will last a very long time. No reapplication or touch-up necessary.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN: All loose/flaking paint needs to be removed. Your surface needs to be cleaned then primed with Gulf Synthetics PermaBond.
PREP: Remove both wet and dry chemistry from container. Empty white liquid resin into container. Add one gallon of exterior latex or acrylic GLOSS paint (any color). Mix briskly for one minute. Slowly add dry chemistry while stirring briskly with drill mixer for five minutes. Stir mixture-loosen up any dry portion from the bottom of container. Dry chemistry components should break down completely and mix should be smooth and viscous. The coating is now activated and should be used immediately.
Do not alter the chemistry of the product in any way by adding or subtracting material or by adding other ingredients (DO NOT ADD WATER). If you are working on a large area with more than one kit, mix each kit separately and then blend together for color consistency.
APPLICATION: For best coverage, use a 3/8" nap paint roller and roll out the first coat perpendicular-(against) the grain. This allows the coating-work into the cracks and splinters, filling them up and locking them down. Allow-dry completely before applying the second coat.
Apply second coat in the opposite direction or parallel with the grain of the wood. The second coat is key-attaining the proper texture. If a more aggressive non-slip texture is desired, use a one-inch nap roller for the second coat. Be consistent in your technique. Allow-dry.
Additional coats may be applied-build the final mil thickness, if desired. Clean tools with water. keep a lid on any extra product and store in a cool, dark and dry space. activated coatings will have an approximate 14-day pot life. buckets should be cleaned and re-used.

Surface or Product Preparation
For best results, we recommend the surface to be CLEAN, DRY, DULL, and of MODERATE TEMPERATURE.
CLEAN: Surfaces must be thoroughly clean, free of dirt, sealer or waxes, peeling paint, mildew, tar, mill glaze, efflorescence, grease or oily substances. Clean the surface by power washing, and allow substrate to dry completely for a minimum of 48 hours. Do not use a Deck cleaning product because many contain solvents. (DO NOT use a detergent with a de-greaser)
DRY: The surface needs to be thoroughly dry. Test wood using a probe type moisture meter. No more than a 20% moisture content is recommended. For exterior projects, do not apply if precipitation is predicted in the next 24 hours.
DULL: Glossy, painted, or sealed surfaces must be dulled by sanding, to produce a profile for the DeckRevive™ coating to bond to. After sanding, clean surface of any loose debris.
MODERATE TEMPERATURE: For best results apply between 40˚- 85°F. Do not apply if ambient temperature or the surface temperature is <40˚ or >85˚F. If temperature is less than 40˚F this product will cure too slowly or maybe not at all. If temperatures exceed 85˚F, this coating may set too quickly. Additionally, do not apply coating if temperature is predicted to drop below 40˚F within the next 24 hours.
PREPPING CRACKS AND NAIL/SCREW HEADS: DeckRevive™ is quite thick and will easily fill most small cracks. If existing cracks are excessive (over 3/8” deep and wide) use Quikrete Quick Setting Filler to infill before coating with DeckRevive™. For best results, countersink rusting nail or screw heads and apply Quikrete Quick Setting Filler to infill. Do not smear Quikrete Quick Setting Filler on adjacent wood surface. Allow Quikrete Quick Setting Filler to dry 2-hours before applying DeckRevive™. If you desire, rusty nails can be spot primed with a rust inhibitive primer found at your local paint store. See manufacturers recommended rust inhibitive primer specification sheet.
PRIMER RECOMMENDED: PermaBond Primer is required over pre-painted, pre-stained, redwood, cedar and extremely cracked or weathered deck boards when applying DeckRevive. PermaBond can be colored by adding 1 quart of exterior latex paint to a gallon of PermaBond.
