Porcelain Sealer

PORCELAIN SEALER is an impregnating invisible and breathable sealer that protects low absorbent tile natural stone and grout from damage caused by water salts and oil-based stains. Treated indoor and outdoor surfaces become easier to clean maintain and keep looking good for longer. PORCELAIN SEALER provides lasting protection for polished marble polished granite porcelain terrazzo vitrified tile and grout.

NOTES:

Typical applications: PORCELAIN SEALER is suitable for a wide variety of applications, including building facades, floors, walls, swimming pool surrounds, patios, garages, kitchens and public and private entertaining areas.

Benefits: PORCELAIN SEALER is able to repel stains, graffiti and food products; making cleaning easier; non film-forming; able to work without changing the appearance of the surface - keeps the original look; suitable for indoor and outdoor use; able to greatly reduce water uptake and minimize moss growth, freeze thaw spalling and efflorescence; an excellent chloride ion salt screen; ideal for marine and pool areas; highly water vapor permeable; able to breathe so there is no build-up of subsurface moisture, allowing it to dry out; deeply penetrating; protecting against weathering and wearing; able to last up to 15 years; very alkali resistant; won't breakdown in contact with cement based materials, and able to seal hairline cracks up to 0.3 mm (0.012 in.) and does not flake or peel.

Application rate: Total application rate is approximately one liter per 10 to 30 sq. meters (100 to 300 sq. feet per quart) depending on absorption.

How to use:
1. ALWAYS TEST PRODUCT ON A SMALL AREA FIRST and allow a 24 hour cure time to determine the ease of application and desired results.
2. Ensure surfaces to be treated are dry, clean and free of residues.
3. Product is to be applied without thinning.
4. Generously saturate the surface with product using a low-pressure hand spray, a clean brush, or similar. Surface should have a mirror-like "wet" look for 3-5 seconds. Avoid contact with surrounding areas.
5. When the surface becomes touch dry, or a minimum of 10 minutes, repeat Step 4. Total application rate is approximately one liter per ten to 30 sq. meters (100 to 300 sq. feet per quart) depending on absorption.
6. When the surface becomes touch dry, or a minimum of 10 minutes, to allow the product to penetrate into the surface, polish surface with a clean white dry cloth to remove excess product, moistening cloth with PORCELAIN SEALER to ease polishing.
7. Use an organic solvent e.g. methylated spirits to clean equipment.
8. Sealer will not prevent surface etching or wear and may lighten or darken some surfaces. PORCELAIN SEALER will make the maintenance and cleaning of a treated surface much easier. It may be applied over a surface that has been treated with a Dry-Treat impregnating sealer a minimum of 24 hours after the treatment. Once cured, this product is food contact safe.

Precautions: Do not take internally. Apply when surface temperature is between 5 - 35ºC(40 - 95ºF). Avoid moisture contact with the surface for six hours after application. Protect surrounding areas from over-spray. Keep away from drains, plants, water and soil. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Use a positive pressure respirator if ventilation is inadequate. Wear suitable solvent-resistant gloves, protective clothing, safety goggles and an organic vapor respirator during application. Avoid applying in windy conditions. Wash hands thoroughly.

Active content: Less than 10 per cent active content in a solvent.
