Uses

A premium non-yellow solvent based, Twin Pack Polyurethane Sealer that provides superior abrasion and stain resistance.

Coverage

Approximately 15m² 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

Allow tile to dry for 24 hours after washing, prior to sealing. Test on a small area first, to ensure suitability and desired result. Surface must be clean, 100% dry, free of sealers, waxes and grout residue. Thoroughly stir contents, prior to application. Apply thin even coats of sealer, in one direction, second coat at 90º to the first coat, using a lamb’s wool applicator or a “kaeppel roller” only. Thoroughly stir part A (four parts) and part B (1 part) separately prior to mixing together, for at least two minutes. Only mix the required amount. Maximum pot life is two hours. Do not allow pooling or bubbles to form.

Cure times

Allow 4 hours between coats. Foot traffic after 8 hours. Do not apply externally if rain is expected within 12 hours. Full cure in 7 hours.

Test

After 4 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 the life of the sealer. Re-apply Protecta Plus if signs of wear occur.

Limitations

Do not apply to damp tiles. Do not apply to hot tiles. Allow 7 – 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 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 allow contact with other sensitive surfaces.
