Painting A Cinder Block Wall?


I need to paint a cinder block wall that is new. Can I coat it with one of the Loxon products from S.W. to avoid from having to wait 30 days for the alkalinity (Spelling) to go down, and push forward with finsihing the wall. Thanks for any responses.

Thanks plazaman for the info. After further research it looks like Loxon conditioner is the product.

I have found that HC concrete stain holds up better on block than paint and it can go on directly without a primer.

Dow Allguard coating for split faced block, and smooth is what i've found is the best, but not cheap.

spray and backroll. takes 2-2.5 coats depending on how you prime it.
