Varies according to the substrate condition and climate. Approximately 7m2 per litre of product, per coat.
The substrate should be free of dust, grease, wax, oil, dirt, loose plaster, laitance, curing compounds, paint and all other friable materials and contaminants likely to prevent the adhesive bonding.
New concrete should be left with a wood float finish and sufficiently aged as per manufacturer’s recommendations.
All substrates should be structurally sound, securely fastened and properly supported to eliminate any movement that may cause cracking.
Ideally, CEMIX CLEAR SEALER should be applied to new concrete or masonry. If applying to existing work, it is recommended to remove any stains, marks, variations etc. from the substrate before application, as the product is likely to magnifiy these.
Ensure that the substrate is dry before application.
Always carry out a small test area to approve look and feel.
1. Stir before use.
2. Apply the product generously with a brush or roller.
3. Repeat for a second coat.
Ensure a coverage of at least 7m2 per litre, per coat. Further coats may be required for more porous substrates. Allow for a minimum of 4 to 6 hours between coats in a warmer climate, and up to 24 hours in cooler climate. Build up coats as required.
Note: Never apply more product than is being absorbed. If the product pools, brush the excess off. Ensure that there is no rising damp as this will make the sealed surface cloudy in appearance.
Over application is likely to make the surface slippery, especially when wet.
DRYING & CURING:
Drying and curing time may vary depending on the substrate and climate. D rying time is approximately 4 hours. Curing time is up to approximately 48 hours.
Clean tools with xylene or a similar strength solvent thinner immediately after use.
STORAGE & SHELF LIFE:
Up to 12 months when stored in the o iginal, unopened packaging, in a dry place at 23°C and 50% relative humidity.
Do not apply if rain is expected within 48 hours.
Not to be used as a waterproofer.
