MasonrySaver Garage Floor Sealer is a non-yellowing acrylic polymer blend sealer formulated for sealing properly cured concrete surfaces.

USES

Garage Floor Sealer is suitable for use on a variety of surfaces where a durable gloss finish is desired, including garage floors, concrete patios, driveways, and sidewalks. It leaves an attractive, durable, gloss finish that protects concrete from moisture, oil stains, and abrasion/wear.

ADVANTAGES

  • Protects concrete surfaces from oil spills and stains
  • Stands up to hot tire traffic
  • Can be applied over previously coated surfaces
  • Extremely durable, high gloss finish
  • Low odor, water-based formula

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Weather Conditions: Do not proceed with application if any of the following occur: temperature falls below 50°F, rainfall is predicted within eight hours of application, or when surface is frozen. Application should only be made when surface temperature is between 50°-90°F and is thoroughly dry.

Limitations: Not suitable for use over asphalt surfaces. Do not use on below-grade surfaces that are subject to severe hydro-static pressures. When using in areas subjected to hot tire traffic, allow adequate time for product to cure before putting the area back into service. When applying over a previous coating, hot tire resistance maybe compromised. Do not use if the area will be exposed to softer, high-performance tires. Product will not withstand brake fluid and will need to be reapplied in areas where brake fluid spills have occurred.

Surface Preparation: Always test in an inconspicuous area to ensure desired results. Surface to receive application should be clean and dry. Absorbed moisture should not be present. New construction should cure for a period of no less than 28 days and should be clean and dry.

Protect all adjacent glossy surfaces, paint films, windows, plant life, asphalt based material and all other non-targeted surfaces from overspray and run-down. Cover all openings including windows and doors prior to application. During use, avoid wind drift that may injure pedestrians or damage vehicles and adjacent properties.

For new concrete: Use MasonrySaver No-Rinse Etch to etch the surface. Allow to set for 30 minutes and then apply Garage Floor Sealer. Note that No-Rinse Etch will etch the surface but does not clean any dirt or staining. If concrete needs to be cleaned and etched, use MasonrySaver Safer Masonry Cleaner. Please note that using Safer Masonry Cleaner will require a thorough rinsing with water and three to five days dry time.

For existing concrete: If the surface is already clean, No-Rinse Etch can be used for etching 30 minutes before application of sealer. Otherwise use MasonrySaver Safer Masonry Cleaner to remove dust, curing compounds, efflorescence, coatings, and other foreign materials in order to expose a clean, sound surface. It is extremely important to rinse the surface thoroughly with water after using Safer Masonry Cleaner to bring the substrate to a neutral pH level (7). Testing with pH paper should be done prior to using Garage Floor Sealer to ensure that a neutral pH has been achieved. After rinsing, surface should be allowed to dry a minimum of three to five days prior to sealing. Applying sealer over an acidic substrate will most likely result in failure. If oil or grease stains are present, use MasonrySaver Cleaner & Degreaser to remove stains prior to cleaning/etching.

Mixing: Material may separate during long-term storage, so mix thoroughly before use.

Equipment: MasonrySaver Garage Floor Sealer may be sprayed applied using a pump-up, garden type sprayer with fan type nozzle, with an airless sprayer, pad applicator, or by roller. Use a short nap cover if you use a roller.

APPLICATION

Apply two uniform coats of material to new, previously untreated concrete surfaces. Allow the first coat of material to dry sufficiently to walk on prior to application of the second coat, but wait no longer than four hours. Avoid puddling or ponding of product; brush or roll material until it thoroughly penetrates the surface. Block all drains and use absorptive coverings to contain run-off or excess material. Use soap and water to remove overspray as soon as possible.
Caution: Treated surfaces may become slick when wet. To provide a non-skid surface, consider broadcasting silica sand, synthetic aggregate or another skid-resistant additive to surface per aggregate manufacturer’s instructions. For more information and specific recommendations, please visit masonrysaver.com/nonskid.
Drying time: One to two hours, depending on temperature and humidity. Allow four to six hours cure time before exposing to foot traffic. Allow six days cure time before exposure to heavy traffic, such as forklifts, automobiles, etc.
Coverage: 100 – 150 square feet per gallon on concrete. Coverage rates will vary based on the porosity of the substrate.

CLEAN UP

Remove any overspray immediately with soap and water. Dry film can be removed using a razor scraper. Thoroughly rinse spray equipment with clean water. Clean applicators with soap and water. Rinse thoroughly.

CAUTIONS

Keep out of reach of children. Keep container closed. Eye irritant. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes and prolonged contact with skin. The use of chemical splash gloves and a NIOSH approved respirator, effective against ammonia inhalation, is highly recommended when using this product.

FIRST AID

TRANSPORT AND HANDLING

MasonrySaver Garage Floor Sealer is not considered hazardous under Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations. Do not stack pallets. Keep from freezing.

MAINTENANCE

Remove all contaminants which might stain or abrade treated surfaces as quickly as possible to minimize staining and abrasion. Occasional cleaning with a mild detergent and water will generally restore treated surfaces to original appearance. When MasonrySaver Garage Floor Sealer begins to appear worn from the surface, a single coat of material may be applied once surface has been properly prepared. Avoid applying maintenance coat more frequently than every 18 – 24 months to avoid excessive build-up of material on surface. When build-up of product does become excessive, surface should be thoroughly stripped of product, followed by a reapplication of two coats of material.
