TEST FIRST

Due to the nature of different surfaces, you should do a few inconspicuous test areas following label instructions to determine ease of application, surface colour stability and the desired results. The end user must determine the suitability of the product for their intended use.

PRECAUTIONS

  1. Read entire label, SDS & technical bulletin before using;
  2. Wear appropriate skin & eye protection & use in a ventilated area;
  3. Surface must be clean, dry & free from any sealers & coatings;
  4. Use when surface temperature is between 4°C and 32°C;
  5. Do NOT allow sealer to drip or leave drip marks on the surface;
  6. Do NOT use on the underside of the tile or stone. If six sided/dip.

PRE-GROUT SEALING

PRE-GROUT SEALING: For quick & easy clean-up after grouting as the porous surface may stain during installation and grouting.

  1. Pre-seal the front/top surface before installation or 24 hours after installation. Do NOT saturate the open grout joints;
  2. Allow minimum 24 hours cure time before grouting;
  3. If using dark or contrasting grout, apply Grout Release Pro after Aqua-Seal Gold+ or Ultra-Block has cured, then grout.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Sweep, vacuum or wipe surface to be sealed;
  2. Apply sealer to the clean, dry surface using a sealer applicator, pump sprayer, sealer sponge, brush, paint roller or paint pad;
  3. Ensure an even coat and coverage then work product in thoroughly;
  4. After 5-10 minutes, wipe the surface COMPLETELY DRY with absorbent paper or cotton towels to remove any excess;
  5. DO NOT ALLOW PRODUCT TO DRY ON THE SURFACE;
  6. Repeat this process for each application;

APPLICATION NOTES

  1. For vertical surfaces apply from bottom to top and avoid run- down;
  2. Porous surfaces will require additional coats. If 2 or more coats are required, allow a minimum 30 minutes between coats;
  3. 2 hours after the final coat, conduct a test to determine if the surface is properly sealed. Apply a few water droplets to the surface. If the water is easily absorbed then apply an additional coat of sealer. Wait 2 hours and repeat the test.
  4. The surface is ready for light traffic after 2 hours. Keep dry for minimum 12 hours. Full cure in 24 hours.

LIMITATIONS

  • Sealer is NOT a waterproofing agent and will not prevent surface wear, scuff marks or etching from harsh or acidic chemicals.
  • Spills should be wiped up immediately to help minimise staining.

EXPECTED WEAR

Performance & wear will vary depending on characteristics, texture & hardness of surface, traffic wear plus frequency and type of maintenance products used. Weather exposure, harsh cleaning methods like pressure washing, use of high alkaline, acidic cleaners or solvents will affect enhancement, wear & performance. High use & exterior areas may require more frequent applications. RE-SEAL AS NECESSARY.

MAINTENANCE

  • EzyClean for routine, everyday cleaning;
  • Boost for routine cleaning & help prolong sealer life span;
  • XtremeClean for periodic heavy duty cleaning;
  • AquaGuard for spary’n’wipe gleaming of bench tops plus help prolong sealer lifespan;
