Sandstone-Sealer TM

Description

STONESHIELD SANDSTONE SEALER is a superior quality natural look, non-yellowing water-based resin sealer that provides a protective surface sheen, good stain resistance and ease of cleaning. For interior and exterior use.

Uses

Suitable on natural, tumbled, and honed sandstone, limestone and similar natural stone.

Coverage

Approx. 15 m2 per litre per coat depending on porosity, surface texture, temperature and method of application. Minimum of 2 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 5 years.

Method of Application

Always test on a small area first, to ensure suitability and desired result. Allow tile to dry for 8 hours after washing, prior to sealing. Surface must be clean, dry and free of sealers, waxes and grout residue. Apply thin even coats of sealer, in one direction, using a lambswool applicator, clean mop or sponge only. 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 12 hours. Full cure in 48 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-CLEAN to prolong life of sealer. Re-apply STONESHIELD SANDSTONE-SEALER if signs of wear occur. STONESHIELD SURFACE-PROTECTOR may be applied as a protective maintenance polish internally.

Limitations

Do not apply to damp tiles. Do not apply to hot tiles. Allow 7 days after laying with quality tile adhesive before sealing. Do not wet tiles for at least 24 hours after sealing. Store and use between 16°C and 32° C only.

Precautions

Ensure good ventilation and avoid breathing vapours. 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 mix with other chemicals. Do not allow contact with other sensitive surfaces.
