Is A Base Coat Required?

When to Apply a Base Coat - MultiCover™ Acrylic Resurfacer

MultiCover™ base coat can be the most important step in the resurfacing process

but may be omitted under certain conditions.


When to Apply a Base Coat?


New Asphalt Porosity1.    New Asphalt and Concrete Surfaces :  Always Apply MultiCover™ Base Coat

MultiCover™ Acrylic Resurfacer (base coat) should definitely be applied to all new asphalt* and new concrete** surfaces. MultiCover™ base coat will fill any surface imperfections in the new surface and provides a uniform texture surface to promote proper adhesion of MultiMate™ Court Paints. Porous new surfaces may require extra MultiCover basecoat at time of application. Very porous new or degraded surfaces may require two applications of MultiCover to complete the surface to the tight texture required for color coating applications, however this is rare. If too little base coat is applied, additional MultiMate court paint may be required to complete the color saturation on the court. Being that the cost of court paints is more expensive than base coat material, you will save money by completing the MultiCover basecoat as recommended. We can assist you in determining the porosity of your court surface and the recommended amount of MultiCover™ Acrylic Resurfacer required for your court. 


*New asphalt should cure for a minimum of 28 days prior to commencing coating applications.


**New concrete should cure for a minimum of 28 days, and then be acid etched and thoroughly rinsed prior to commencing coating applications. Note: MultiAcrylic™ Adhesion Promoter should be applied to new or existing bare concrete 1 hour prior to applying MultiCover™ Acrylic Resurfacer (base coat) to ensure excellent adhesion of all coating applications. MultiAcrylic

Adhesions Promoter will provide longevity to the color coatings applied.


Note: All surfaces, asphalt or concrete, new or existing, should be power washed using a fan spray nozzle with 2000-2200 psi (pounds per square inch) prior to commencing repairs or coating applications to ensure excellent adhesion of color coatings.

2.    Existing Asphalt or Concrete: Previously Color Coated


·       Older and Degraded Surfaces Requiring Repairs:

Depending on the condition of the surface condition of the court, a MultiCover™ base coat may or may not be required. If the surface is very degraded and requires crack repairs and leveling of depressions, than a base coat is highly recommended. MultiCover will seal the repairs and provide a nice new tight top coat to the court on which to apply MultiMate™ Court Paints.  If due to budget constraints MultiCover™ base coat is simply not affordable, then you will want to ensure you are very careful and patient when completing your repairs with ElasticCrack™ and MultiAcrylic Patch Binder™, paying close attention to feathering out all repairs to the court surface to eliminate any raised lip edges, lessening the sight of these repairs through MultiMate™ Court Paints.

·       Existing Asphalt and Concrete Surfaces is Good Condition (No Repairs Required):

Some existing courts are in great condition, not requiring any repairs. If this is the case, MultiCover™ base coat is not likely required, and you can proceed directly to cleaning the court and applying MultiMate™ Court Paints.

·       Older Concrete Courts:

On older concrete courts, if there are any bare concrete areas visible on the court, these areas should be treated with MultiAcrylic™ Adhesion Promoter prior to applying MultiCover™ basecoat or MultiMate™ court paints.
