Stain-Proof

STAIN-PROOF is an impregnating invisible and breathable sealer that protects exposed natural stone tiles pavers concrete 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. STAIN-PROOF provides lasting protection for natural stone concrete terracotta tile cast stone paving sandstone limestone brick and grout.

NOTES:

Typical applications: STAIN-PROOF is suitable for a wide variety of applications, including building facades, floors, walls, swimming pool surrounds, patios, garages, kitchens and entertaining areas.

Benefits: STAIN-PROOF 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 to breathe so there is no build-up of subsurface moisture, allowing it to dry out; deeply penetrating protecting against weathering and wearing; very alkali resistant; won't break down in contact with cement based materials, able to seal hairline cracks up to 0.3 mm (0.012 in.) and does not flake or peel.

Warranty: A 15-YEAR PERFORMANCE WARRANTY is offered when product applied by an Accredited Applicator following our written instructions and surface is maintained regularly using our written maintenance system, as outlined in our warranty document. Spills should still be cleaned up immediately to minimize absorption.

Application rates: Total application rate is approximately one liter per two to 25 sq. meters (20 to 250 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 two to 25 sq. meters (20 to 250 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. If you have waited too long and the product has begun to cure and has become more difficult to remove, moistening the cloth with STAIN-PROOF should 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. STAIN-PROOF will make the maintenance and cleaning of a treated surface much easier. 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.
