DIRECTIONS FOR USE
SURFACE CONDITIONS: Surface to which MasonrySaver shall be applied must be free from dirt, dust, stains, efflorescence, coatings or other foreign materials which might interfere with penetration of water repellent. Repair loose or missing mortar joints and allow 72 hours for cure before application of water repellent. Repair and/or replace damaged masonry units. Allow new masonry and concrete to cure at least 28 days before applying water repellent.
WEATHER CONDITIONS: Do not apply if standing water, ice, or frost are visible on surface to be treated. Do not proceed with application of MasonrySaver when temperature of surface, air and material is below 40° F or greater than 110° F, or when rain and/or temperatures below 40° F are predicted within 6 hours after application.
APPLICATION: Vertical: Test small area of surface before starting general application to ensure desired results and coverage rates. Apply from bottom up using a low pressure sprayer (10-25 psi), or by roller with a minimum 3/8” nap. Flood surface until excess runs down 6 to 8 inches below spray or roller pattern. For maximum penetration and desired coverage rates, a wet on wet application is recommended; retreat within 3 to 5 minutes after initial application. A wet treated surface may be agitated with a soft bristle scrub brush to ensure more even distribution and greater penetration. Protect all adjacent glossy surfaces, paint films, windows, plant life, asphalt-based materials and all other non-targeted surfaces from overspray and rundown. Remove overspray from non-targeted surfaces immediately with soap and water. Apply to southern exposed areas during coolest part of day.
Horizontal: Apply a single flood coat using sufficient material so that the surface remains wet for a few minutes before final absorption occurs. If additional material is required to reach desired coverage rate, a wet on wet application can be used. Avoid puddling or ponding; brush or broom to spread material to more porous area. If applicable, block all drains and use absorptive coverings to contain runoff of excess material. Use soap and water to remove overspray as soon as possible.
Drying Time: 2-6 hours depending on temperature and humidity.
Clean-up: Thoroughly rinse spray equipment with mineral spirits. Clean rollers with mineral spirits. Rinse thoroughly.
Storage and Disposal: Do not store in temperatures above 100°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 MasonrySaver Solvent Base after a 24 hour drying period.
Spills and leaks: Eliminate all sources of ignition. Soak up small spills with absorbent material. Dispose of in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.
Coverage Guidelines: Coverage rates will typically range from 90-150 sq. feet per gallon depending upon surface porosity. Do not thin product. Caution: Over application of material may cause darkening of surface. Accumulation of product on ladders, scaffolding, roofing, etc. may result in a slippery surface. Prevent overspray from accumulating. Clean surfaces as necessary.
