MasonrySaver® Water Repellent for Brick is an architectural grade product that meets all industry guidelines for selection of commercial water repellents for vertical brick surfaces. This high performance penetrating silane/siloxane blend bonds with the minerals in brick to provide long-lasting water repellency. Water Repellent for Brick is breathable, non film-forming, and will not alter surface color or appearance.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Surface and air temperatures should be a minimum of 40°F. Do not apply to frozen or frost covered surfaces. Application must be to clean, sound, dry to slightly damp surfaces. Do not apply to wet or water saturated surfaces, or when rainfall is expected within six hours.
Remove dust, dirt, grease, oils, efflorescence, wax, curing compounds, coatings or other foreign matter that might block or interfere with product penetration. When tuckpointing has been performed, allow at least three days cure time prior to applying Water Repellent for Brick. Test a small area of surface before starting general application to assure desired results and coverage rates. Provide adequate ventilation if applied indoors.
Vertical: Apply with low pressure “garden type” pump-up or airless sprayer. Flood surface until excess runs down six to eight inches below spray. To assure optimum performance, a wet-on-wet application is recommended; apply second coat within three to five minutes. A wet treated surface may be agitated with a soft bristle brush to ensure even distribution and greater penetration. Protect adjacent paint films, windows, plant life, asphalt-based material and all non-targeted surfaces from overspray. Remove overspray immediately with soap and water.
Horizontal: Apply a single application with low pressure spray so that surface remains wet for two to three minutes before final absorption. Avoid puddling or ponding; brush or broom to spread material until it thoroughly penetrates the surface. Block all drains and use absorptive coverings to contain run-off of excess material. Use soap and water to remove overspray as soon as possible.
Coverage Rates: Actual coverages will vary due to porosity of surface materials but approximate coverage is 100 - 150 sq. ft. per gallon. Note: Over application of material may cause darkening of surface.
Drying Time: One to two hours depending on temperature and humidity.
Clean-Up: Thoroughly rinse spray equipment with clean water.
Storage and Disposal: Do not store below 32° F. Dispose of this container and any unused product in accordance with all federal, state, and local regulations.
Helpful Tips: Protect surrounding vegetation. Wet leaves and greenery before and after application or cover with plastic. Asphaltic material may be damaged if soaked. Protect from run-off with drop cloths or other absorbent material. Most oil-based paints may be applied over Water Repellent for Brick after a 24 hour drying period.
Keep out of reach of children. Fire hazards are eliminated since Water Repellent for Brick is water-based and does not contain combustible or flammable, volatile organic solvents. Eye and skin irritations are greatly reduced. There is less risk to surrounding vegetation during application, and overspray on non-targeted areas can be easily removed with soap and water. Respiratory protection is not generally required during normal use and handling. Avoid breathing mists. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Wash thoroughly after handling. Caution: Accumulation of product on ladders, scaffolding, etc. may result in a slippery surface.
