H2o Seal & Shine ™ TM

Description

A water based non-yellowing Acrylic Emulsion that provides a stain resistant surface seal.

Uses

Suitable on sandstone, slate, cement tiles, terracotta, unglazed ceramics and vinyl.

Coverage

Approximately 20m² per litre per coat depending on porosity, surface texture, temperature and method of application. Minimum of 2 – 3 coats required.

Expected Wear

Will vary depending on texture, hardness of surface, area traffic, maintenance, weather and use of aggressive cleaners. Expected wear – up to 3 years.

Method of Application

Allow tile to dry for 8 hours after washing, prior to sealing. Test on a small area first, to ensure suitability and desired result. Surface must be clean, dry, free of sealers, waxes and grout residue. Apply thin even coats of sealer, in one direction, using a lamb’s wool applicator. Do not allow pooling or bubbles to form.

Cure times

Allow 2 hours between coats. Foot traffic after 4 hours. Do not apply externally if rain is expected within 8 hours. Full cure in 24 hours.

Test

After 2 hours apply water droplets to 1 tile. If water is absorbed, apply additional coats. A consistent even-sheen is required.

Maintenance

Only use STONESHIELD DAILY CLEANER to prolong life of sealer. Re-apply H²O seal if signs of wear occur.

Limitations

Not recommended where slippery conditions may occur, (e.g. Pools and showers). Do not apply to hot or wet tiles. Allow 10 – 14 days after laying with Quality Tile Adhesive before sealing. Do not wet tiles for at least 48 hours after sealing.

Precautions

Ensure good ventilation. Avoid skin and eye contact. Wear goggles, gloves and suitable protective clothing when necessary. Keep out of reach of children and pets and store away from other chemicals. Do not allow contact with other sensitive surfaces.
