CEMIX POTTERY SEALANT is a clear satin finish water based eco friendly penetrating waterproofing sealer. It is non-toxic and resists mould and lichen. It is based on silane modified nano particle size, self-cross linking hybrid technology and can be effectively used for impregnating and sealing a variety of garden ornaments, garden pots, bird baths, reconstituted stone & carved stone features and other porous garden objects. It has outstanding adhesion, penetrating and sealing properties on various substrates. The application does not produce any discolouration of the surface and is suitable for waterproofing and sealing a wide variety of absorbent surfaces and not suitable for very dense natural stone, especially marble and granite. It can also be used on timber decks, outdoor furniture, timber wall cladding and cured decorative water based coatings that do not show signs of chalking.
TYPICAL APPLICATION / USES
The surfaces should be water blasted and made clean, free from grease, loose particles, dirt, paint, curing compounds etc. Moss or algae growth should be removed with a suitable treatment and washed with clean water. Always test apply on an area first and approve look and feel.
Shake or stir thoroughly before use. Always test apply on an area first. CEMIX POTTERY SEALANT should be applied without diluting in two coats to ensure complete coverage and saturation of the substrate. Apply straight from the spray pack and the sealer will dry in about 20mins at 25°C. On high absorbent surfaces, repeat or increase the rate of application until surface is completely saturated. Re-application at a later date is possible provided the substrate is clean. Depending upon the porosity of the substrate – coverage of 5m²/L should be achieved.
NOTE: There is not a sealer suitable for all types of pavers, tiles, or other surfaces. Never apply more product than is being absorbed into the surface you are sealing. If product is pooling on the surface, brush the excess off. If you feel no product or very little product is being absorbed, stop and seek technical assistance. Always do a test area first to approve the look and feel before doing the entire area. Ensure there is no rising damp as this will make the sealer surface cloudy. Over application can make the surface slippery especially when wet.
Cure concrete after it has set using standard curing methods.
