Our work is negotiated primarily on temperature and weather, so there are many factors involved and many outcomes possible. Please remember that these answers are not set in stone, if you happen to have any specific questions pertaining to application please email us at info@gustaf.com

How is it applied?
Gacodeck is a liquid product which is roller applied and/or troweled on to the deck surface.

How long does the application take to cure?
Normally 36 to 48 hours, although curing time varies with the temperature and the type (acrylic or urethane) of system you are applying.

Can it be applied in the rain?
Yes, if the area to be coated is sufficiantly tarped or covered to keep the deck completely dry. Click here for a tarped deck example.

What temperatures are suitable for application?
Urethane Gacodeck should not be applied at temperatures below 40 degrees Farenheit or above 80 degrees Farenheit, as a general guideline. Acrylic Gacodeck should not be applied below 50 degrees Farenheit or above 80 degrees Farenheit, as a general guideline.
