Concrete and Masonry Sealer Application Instructions
Use in a well ventilated area.The preparation process should be followed to ensure adequate penetration and optimum performance of this product. For use on Concrete, Brick, Tile, Stucco, Pavers, cementaceous materials, travertine, flagstone, stone, marble, granite, driveways, garage floors, industrial floors, or basement floors. Not for use on acrylic surfaces, corian®, vinyl or linoleum flooring.It is up to the user to ultimately determine the suitability of this product for use on the intended substrate.
The substrate must be structurally sound, thoroughly clean and dry. Remove all paints, sealers or adhesives. Clean of oil, grease, dirt, wax, curing compounds, efflorescence and other contaminants that might interfere with sealer penetration.
If acid is used for cleaning, neutralize the surface completely and rinse with water prior to application.
New concrete must be cured at least 28 days. If needed, caulk, patch, or repair the area prior to application.
Perform a trial brush out in an inconspicuous area to ensure the desired coverage and appearance is achieved. This product will not repair existing damage such as cracking or crumbling concrete. Make sure entire surface is completely dry and free of dust, dirt and debris. Cover all surrounding areas not intended to be coated. Mix thoroughly before use and stir occasionally during application. Do not dilute or mix this product with any other product. Do not spray in windy/breezy conditions.
Apply product between 50° and 85°F to a clean dry surface, and when no precipitation is expected for 24 hours. To prevent premature evaporation do not apply to a surface that is hot or in direct sunlight. Apply with a natural or synthetic brush, foam roller or airless sprayer. When spraying, work on a 30 to 40 square foot area at a time, making sure to back brush any drips, runs, uneven coverage or surface puddles. Do not over saturate surface with product or allow puddling to prevent tackiness, excessive drying time or uneven appearance when dry. Apply additional applications “wet on wet” 5 to 10 minutes apart.
Apply a saturating film on the verge of puddling. Roll or broom out any puddles until the sealer penetrates into the substrate.
APPLY TWO (2) WET-ON-WET COATS ON SURFACE. Do not allow product to dry fully between coats. Apply second coat within 6 hours of the first coat. Spray on from the bottom up creating a 4-6″ controlled rundown below the spray contact point. Do not over-apply. Spread out any runs or drips that do not penetrate with a dry roller. Clean up over-spray, drips or splashes with mineral spirits.
Allow a minimum of 24 to 48 hours before allowing traffic on surface. Test surface for dryness prior to use.
Coverage varies depending on type of surface.. Allow 1 gallon per 150 square feet of surface area.
Use mineral spirits or citrus based cleaner. Timber Ox Green Wood Protectant Stain and Masonry Sealer are combustible, please dispose of rags and other materials safely.
Care and Maintenance
The surface will continue to shed water and protect the substrate, whether or not it beads. The sealer adheres well to itself. It can be reapplied to increase beading or to restore water-shedding.
Inspect surface annually using this simple test. Sprinkle a few drops of water on the surface. If the water beads, the surface is still protect. Test again in 6 months. If the water is readily absorbed by the surface, it is time to apply another coat of Timber OX Green Concrete and Masonry Sealer.
