COVERAGE:  One gallon covers approximately 350-400 sq ft depending on porosity and condition of the wood.

Use PermaBond with very worn or distressed wood prior to resurfacing with Deck Revive or Dock Revive.  Priming poorly maintained wood with this bonding agent will enhance adhesion.  It can be tinted to match the final resurfacing product used and to provide color between boards.

  • acrylic-based, VOC-free polymer
  • applies with brush, roller or sprayer
  • tools clean up with water

PermaBond was developed for very worn deck, dock, and concrete surfaces.  As a bonding agent, PermaBond offers that extra bit of insurance against some of the unknowns that distressed wood or concrete may have been exposed to.  Poorly maintained wood can have a petrified look over time, making it difficult for many products to bond to the wood.

PermaBound is an acrylic-based polymer, specially formulated to penetrate and lock into wood fibers and concrete surfaces providing a strong molecular bond for Deck Revive, Dock Revive and Concrete Revive.   We encourage the use of this product if you should have any doubts about the condition of your wood or concrete surface.  Priming with PermaBond will ensure bondability with most subsurface applications.

PermaBound can be tinted the same color as the final Deck, Dock, or Concrete resurfacing product you use from Gulf Synthetics.   This helps achieve color matching between the spaces of the deck boards.  The product can be sprayed, brushed or rolled on and tools clean up easily with water.

We used this about two years ago, and it's been great! We haven't had one little patch come off yet. The Deck Revive/Perma Bond combo has been awesome. It's more expensive, but you'll make your money back in all the saved labor when you only have to seal your deck once. Follow directions, do it right the first time, and you'll save yourself a lot of time and money. Note: I did NOT receive any free/discounted product for this review. It's hard to find information about this product, so i wanted to post this review to help others looking for a quality deck sealer.

    Thank you for your earlier answer.
    I will add a gallon of gloss paint to the deck revive. what is the final finish once mixed?

      Gulf Synthetics · 08/19/2022
      It will be the same color as the gloss acrylic latex exterior paint color that you choose. It will not be shinny though.

    Cleaned, prepped and dried deck. No rain in forecast. Applied Permanond in early afternoon. Late afternoon brief rain storm on top of the permabond. It's now evening and the permabond has not dried. 
    Going forward, do you have any suggestions?
    thank you

      Let dry and then you will need to recoat with the Permabond before using the Deck Revive. Both need to be done on the same day.

    My deck had been painted by previous owner,  does all paint need removed?  I have powerwashed and clean it. All loose paint is gone.  Next move is?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 06/13/2022
      No need to remove all old paint so the next move is the Permabond and then the Deck Revive.

    I’m adding a small alcove to my old deck. Is permabond and DR ok to use on recently purchased treated lumber or should I let it weather for a year?  Thank you.

    How long can you wait after painting on permabond to begin painting on deck revive?  Would overnight be okay?

    Can Perma Bond and deck revive be used over a deck surfaced with Deck Restore, which is mostly intact but peeling in spots?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 04/16/2022
      The Deck Revive cannot fix the issues that Rust-oleum Deck Restore has with peeling. While you could use it over it, the Rust-oleum Deck Restore will still have potential issues under the Deck Revive.

      No, do not use the Permabond prior unless using the Deck Revive.

        Great. Thank you. Another question. I have read from a few people.......that they are putting a top coat of concrete sealer for a wet look and have had no issues. Some ....4 years and going strong still..... apparently easier cleaning as well.  I would not do this type of application on my deck however.......but I have a little interior project I'm scheming about.......and it's a vertical surface about 60 sq ft.  and the wet look and ease of cleaning is appealing to me. Would this be a horrible idea?

          Never top coat over the Deck Revive. It will peel.

    I have ordered a deck revive kit and the perma bond to use on my very worn 200 square ft. dock.  I applied a cleaner/brightener to the dock a few weeks before I found your product, which you do not recommend.  I have pressure washed the deck twice since, and feel certain that there is no cleaning product residue on the dock.  After the second pressure wash, I hand sanded most of the dock because there were small flakes of paint coming off and the wood looked kinda fuzzy from the wash.  Then I read that it's best to finish prep with a pressure wash and not a sanding.  Do you think it is necessary for me to give the dock another quick wash, or do you think it is okay to start the deck revive steps after the sand?  I plan to use the perma bond and then apply the quickcrete in several places that have large cracks from wear and weather.  Then will apply the perma bond on top of everything and use the deck revive mixed with gloss paint on the same day.  One more question - when applying the perma bond and the deck revive, how important is it to get a good coat between the deck boards?  I read to apply first against the wood grain then a coat with the grain.  Is it necessary for me to use a brush and cut in between the boards, or do you think the roller will get enough coverage there?  The last finish on the dock was paint but it has been 90% sanded off.  The dock is not covered and takes a beating from the weather.  It is also in a swampy section of a lake in South Georgia which is very humid and prone to mildew in rainy spells.   Looking forward to using the product.  Thanks for your help.

      You should be okay to apply the Permabond and then the Deck Revive now. Hard to say if the roller will get between the boards as that would depend on the gap width, etc. It is more for aesthetic appearance anyhow.

    Can I use Deck Revive on the vertical plywood on the side of the house? I used Deck Revive on the front and back decks last year and want it all to match. I am also hoping it will cover up the grain on the plywood. If not, what do you suggest? It needs to be a thicker product than paint.

    Hello I am considering using deck revive to restore my old worn deck. I used a belt sander to remove the previous coating of paint. Do I need to now pressure wash my deck? I need to know how to prep to apply the deck revive product and how much to buy for a 15’x20’ deck.

      Yes, pressure wash for the final prep. Two of the Deck Revive Kits.

    Why preasure wash instead of sand?Do you know if deck revive can be mixed with a clear product? And do you know of any?My local paint store only carries semi gloss exterior acrylic. Is semi gloss sufficient?
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 06/18/2021
      Pressure washing opens up te pores while sanding closes the pres. It has to be gloss paint. You cannot mix it with a clear.

    I am planning to use perma bond, quikcrete, and DR on our deck. On the railings I was going to paint with the same paint color, but not use the textured Deck Revive.
    To fill cracks on railing, should I still use both perma bond and quikcrete before using the latex paint? Or is it a different process since I won’t be using the DR?

    We recently moved to a building in downtown Chicago; it has a large outdoor concrete terrace. The terrace is about 10 years old and has not been maintained very well. It currently has a gray coating/finish on it - I am not sure what it is. There are a couple small areas that need to be patched and one or two cracks. One contractor suggested that we need to use muriatic acid first; however, i am very reluctant to do this. Therefore, I am looking for other options. Could we use your Permabond product, followed by DeckRevive? Also, what do you recommend for patching? thanks!!
    • We will reply to your comment shortly
      Gulf Synthetics · 03/15/2021
      You can use the Permabond and the Deck Revive on this. For patching, use the Quikrete Quick Setting Filler .

    What's the longest I can wait to apply concrete revive after applying PermaBond? I just put on the PermaBond but realized I can't do the Concrete Revive today. Can I wait 24 hours? After what point will I need a new coat of PermaBond?

    My deck was painted with 2 coats of deck revive 4+ years ago. At that time some cracks and gaps in the top rail were filled with plastic wood and/or caulking. I plan to add 1 coat of deck revive, tinted the same color as before, to all of the flat surfaces. Before doing so, I will power wash and plan to clean out and fill the former gaps with permanent fill. The plan is: power wash, wait minimum of 48 hours to dry, fill gaps with permanent fill, paint with deck revive. How long do I have to wait between filling the gaps and applying deck revive? Will the perm fill take on the same color as the tinted deck revive?

      You have to use the Permabond prior to both adding the Permafill and the Deck Revive. You apply the coatings as soon as the prior is dry.

    Can PermaBond be used as a primer for outdoor concrete paint as well as the Revive products? I want to paint stone slabs on the top of a patio retaining wall and thought PermaBond might be a good primer. (I haven't ruled out using ConcreteRevive on this surface but may just want paint since it would be smoother).

    Similar to Rich below, but using Fir (kiln dried, HT, No 2, nominal 2"x12") for my exterior stair treads. I live in the pacific northwest. I stored the wood for 6 months in my dry heated basement. I will be painting all sides before installation. Fasteners will be on bottom face only. I plan to paint using Benjamin Moore Products … Arborcoat Oil primer and top coat with Floor & Porch Latex Enamel.
    I have already removed the "mill glaze". I was intending to add my paintable WRP (Water Repellant Preservative) next.
    The folks at Deckstainhelp.com recommended your Permafil product to fill knot holes. I was also intending to use it for cracks.
    Does Permafil cure hard or flexible?
    Can Permafil be top coated with oil based primer?
    When do you advise using Permafil... before or after applying WRP?

    I am building an exterior staircase with just four steps using new, non-treated, 5/4 southern yellow pine treads. I will be painting all sides of the treads for maximum rot resistance. I'm looking for an extremely durable paint which will offer long-term protection that will hold up in our harsh conditions here in Vermont. I saw your product at a builders conference and was very impressed. What do you think of using the Deck Revive 1/4 kit for this application?

        Thanks for your quick follow up. Do I need to prime with Perma Bond, even though it's new wood? Do I need to wait until the wood weathers for several months, or can I just sand with 120 grit to remove any milling sheen then apply two coats of Deck Revive?

          Gulf Synthetics · 03/05/2020
          You always have to use the Permabond first. Wait for a few months and then pressure wash for prep. Do not sand.

            Rich · 03/05/2020
            As I think about it, I'm not sure this would be a feasible plan. The SYP treads I'm looking to use are not treated and our conditions are very wet here in Vermont. The treads will almost certainly cup or warp after being left untreated for a few months. Plus, I would have to remove them when it's time to paint them in order to be able to do the underside, which is critical with non-treated lumber. I can certainly unscrew them, but that usually results in splintering. My hope was to be able to finish the boards (on all sides), install them, then apply one final coat on top.

              Why are you using non-pressure treated SYP lumber in an outdoor application? Cedar, redwood, IPE yes(maybe), but SYP external life span without it will fail in short order, that is why it gets pressure treated for the great outdoors, so it lasts. Stains and paints "aid" in the appearance and offer some added durability but are not swap out substitutes for pressure treated SYP.

    I applied everything the way you said to (Deck Revive over Permabond) on new pressure washed cedar but it has peeled, about a 2" diameter spot. I still have some Permabond left from 2 years ago sealed in a container. Can I reapply it to use with Deck Revive or do I need to by more new Permabond?

    I have a 500sq ft deck in poor shape. I have purchased (2) Permabond, (3) Permafill, and (3) DeckRevive. I see you should prep spots under the Permafill with the bond, that dry time is about 60min for the bond, and you should apply the Deckrevive asap after the bond is dry. A significant portion of my deck will need varying degrees of Permafill, so I want to apply the bond to the entire deck then fill in the cracks and knots etc. Also, because my deck is so bad and pourous, I plan to put the quart of paint in with the bond.<br><br>I guess I'm just trying to understand 1) how long will it take for the Permafill to dry? 2)Do I have to coat the fill with the bond again before the revive? 3)This seems like a lot to get accomplished "immediately" after the bond is dry. Any pointers in how to get all of this accomplished timing wise?

    I know you say you don't have to tint the PermaBond, but I want to, since my deck is very porous. What product do I add to tint the PermaBond? The same acrylic glossy outdoor paint that I'm adding to the Deck Revive? And what size? A quart added to a gallon of PermaBond? Thanks for your clarification.
