AFM Cement, Stone and Tile Sealants
Safecoat Penetrating WaterStop improves water resistance and repellancy in a wide variety of surfaces, including brick walls, concrete foundations, stucco, stone and most unglazed tile. Because Safecoat Penetrating WaterStop low odor and not toxic, it is ideal for use indoors instead of a typical high solvent content sealer; yet, it is durable enough for use outdoors. It is partiuclarly useful as a periodic maintenance coat for surfaces originally treated with Safecoat WaterShield.
USE ON - Porous, mineral containing surfaces such as brick, pavers, concrete block and other cementitious materials, stone and stucco. Not suitable for wood.
APPLICATION - Always have adequate ventilation. Apply Safecoat Penetrating WaterStop with a brush or spray equipment in an even and uniform manner. Do not use a roller. For vertical surfaces start at the top and work down. Keep a wet edge. Always test a sample for suitability prior to full use. Avoid puddling on horizontal surfaces. Apply one coat only. Do not dilute. Note: these instructions are intended to be general only and not exhaustive. The applicator should determine which preparation and techniques are best suited to the specific surface.
COVERAGE - Most surfaces, 200-300 square feet per gallon. Natural limestone, 300-500 square feet per gallon.
DRYING/CURING TIME - 24 hours full cure in moderate humidity and heat.$52.00
This clear, versatile, controlled-penetration, water-repelling sealer provides an invisible barrier against water, and resists oils, grease and similar liquids. It is fast drying, has excellent adhesion and is easy to apply. Also helps to harden, dust-proof and control efflorescence in masonry surfaces. May be used on painted surfaces and may be painted over when dry. Dries clear and does not discolor.
Safecoat MexeSeal is a low odor, waterbased, clear sealer. It is suitable for use on porous interior tile or masonry surfaces where oil and water repellency are desired. It is ideal for long term protection against food, oil and water stains on residential or commercial floors. Safecoat MexeSeal is non-hazardous and non-flammable - a total replacement for high solvent content systems. Available in gloss and satin sheens.
USE ON - Safecoat MexeSeal is recommended on substrates such as unpolished marble, limestone, granite, sandstone, slate, fireclay (brick, tile, terra cotta, pavers), concrete (brick, tile, precast panels, cast in place). Always test in small, inconspicuous places before full application. Safecoat MexeSeal is generally not suited for polished surfaces. Not recommended for use on modern Saltillo or quarry tiles without special care. Saltillo or quarry tiles generally contain salts and other contaminants sensitive to application of water based products. White efflorescence flushing may occur. It may be necessary to repeatedly remove contamination and repeat MexeSeal application until all contaminants are extracted.
APPLICATION - To assist in quick drying/curing, bring adequate ventilation and air flow to the work area. Before using, stir Safecoat® Mexeseal thoroughly but without excessive agitation so as to avoid air bubbles. Then apply as is, using a squeegee brush, roller, sponge or appropriate spray equipment. Apply in thin coats. Allow at least two hours to dry between coats. For best results, this product should not be reduced. Two or more coats may be needed depending on porosity of masonry product. Apply only to a completely dry substrate. Correct application will often slightly deepen color of existing surface. Note: these instructions are intended to be general only and not exhaustive. The applicator should determine which preparation and techniques are best suited to the specific surface.
COVERAGE - One gallon of Safecoat MexeSeal covers approximately 300 square feet in one coat depending on surface porosity.
DRYING/CURING TIME - Under normal conditions, Safecoat MexeSeal dries to touch in one hour, is recoatable after two hours and may be opened to traffic after 8-24 hours, depending upon conditions. Normal conditions include a clean, dry surface, access to fresh air flow, a dust free environment, moderate humidity, and temperatures above 55 degrees F. Thick application, high humidity or conditions other than normal will cause Safecoat MexeSeal to dry and cure more slowly.$75.00
Safecoat Grout Sealer is a clear, moisture resistant sealer for porous tile grout and other cementitious surfaces. It actually reacts with and becomes a part of the grout, increasing water resistance and minimizing the penetration of liquids, helping to prevent staining and giving a wearable, washable surface. Like all Safecoat products, it is as safe and not toxic as possible, formaldehyde free and virtually odorless, giving off no offensive chemical fumes. Dries clear without discoloration.
USE ON - Unsealed tile grout. May also be effective on a variety of other porous cementitious surfaces (test first). For previously sealed grout, conduct several small test patches for absorption and compatibility.
APPLICATION - Always have adequate ventilation. Apply to grout liberally and in an even manner, using a sponge, dry lint-free rag, small brush, or any other tool which can be used comfortably. Flood coating is acceptable, but avoid puddling and to wipe off tile. One coat is generally sufficient. IMPORTANT - Wipe off any sealer which has not penetrated into the grout within 10 minutes; do not allow sealer which has not soaked in to dry on the surface (simply wipe off with a slightly damp cloth or sponge). Always test a sample for suitability prior to full use. Note - these instructions are intended to be general only and not exhaustive. The applicator should determine what preparation and techniques are best suited to the specific surface. See product data sheets for most current information.
COVERAGE - Variable depending on method of application and surface porosity. Generally one quart will cover a minimum of 75 square feet of standard grout lines. Do not thin.
DRYING/CURING TIME - Under normal conditions, Safecoat Grout Sealer dries to the touch within one hour and cures within 24 hours. Normal conditions include a clean, dry surface, access to fresh air flow, a dust free environment, moderate humidity, and temperatures above 55 degrees F. Thick application, high humidity or conditions other than normal will cause Safecoat Grout Sealer to dry and cure more slowly. Avoid using sealed surface for at least 24 hours after application.$25.00
