MasonrySaver® Low Gloss Paver Sealer is a durable, water-based, clear sealer designed to protect and beautify both clay brick and cement patio type paver stones. Low Gloss Paver Sealer is formulated utilizing a durable acrylic resin that provides protection from both water and the ultra-violet light of the sun.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Limitations: Do not use over extremely dense or polished surfaces. It is not suitable for use over asphalt surfaces. This product is designed for horizontal surfaces only. Do not use on below grade applications that are subject to severe hydro-static pressures. Low Gloss Paver Sealer will not prevent water penetration through structural cracks, joints, or defects. The application of this product will reduce the vapor transmission rate of the substrate, which can result in a “blushing” effect to the surface during extremely moist conditions. Excessive moisture within the substrate can cause peeling.
Protect all non-targeted surfaces that may come into contact with the product. Use polyethylene or other tested material for protecting other surfaces, such as glass, foliage, siding, or painted surfaces. Cover all openings including windows and doors prior to application. During use, avoid wind drift that may injure pedestrians, damage vehicles, or adjacent properties. Remove any overspray immediately with soap and water. Dry film can be removed from windows using a razor scraper. Weather Conditions: Do not proceed with application if any of the following occur: temperature falls below 50°F or rainfall is predicted within 8 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. Surface
Preparation: When using, surface to receive application should be clean and dry. Absorbed moisture should not be present.
APPLICATION METHODS: Equipment: Apply by airless or low-pressure spray (20 psi), brush or roller. For airless sprayers, use tip sizes between .011 and .015. Two thin coats (2-3 mils DFT) as opposed to one heavy coat will provide the best results.
APPLICATION: Apply two coats of material to the area to be treated, allowing the first coat to dry completely, approximately 2 hours, before applying the second coat. Avoid puddling and/or ponding of the product on the surface. Brush or roll product out until it is evenly disbursed, and all puddles are removed. Less material will be required on the second coat than was required on the first coat.
Note: Treated surfaces may become slick when wet. To provide a non-skid surface, consider mixing MasonrySaver Non-Slip Additive to this product. The non-slip additive should only be used on the final coat. The material should be rolled on instead of sprayed as additive granules may cause sprayer tips to clog.
Clean-Up: Thoroughly rinse spray equipment with clean water. Clean brushes and rollers with soap and water. Rinse thoroughly. Do not allow Low Gloss Paver Sealer to dry completely on applicators as it may become difficult or impossible to remove.
Coverage Rates: Cement Pavers: 75-150 sq. feet per gallon. Clay Pavers: 150-200 sq. feet per gallon. Actual rates will vary widely due to substrate porosity.
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 will generally restore treated surfaces to their original appearance. When Low Gloss Paver Sealer begins to appear worn from the surface, a single maintenance coat of material may be applied once surface has been properly prepared. Avoid applying a maintenance coat more frequently than every 18 to 24 months to avoid excessive buildup of sealer on the surface. When buildup of product does become excessive, surface should be thoroughly stripped of product followed by an application of two thin coats (2-3 mils DFT) of material.
Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Wash hands and exposed skin after use.
FIRST AID: IF INHALED: Remove to fresh air. Get medical attention if symptoms persist. SKIN CONTACT: Wash with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists. EYE CONTACT: Flush with water for several minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists. IF SWALLOWED: DO NOT induce vomiting. Rinse mouth with water.
