STONESAVER Penetrating Low Gloss Sealer provides the best possible protection for your paving stones and concrete surfaces against harsh pool chemicals, colour fading from UV rays, dirt, salt, grease, oil and rust stain penetration. STONESAVER Penetrating Low Gloss Sealer protects new surfaces and makes old stones look new again with dramatically enhanced colors. Protect your investment with STONESAVER quality products. STONESAVER Penetrating Low Gloss Sealer is a slow drying, deep penetrating acrylic polymer based sealer that provides most of its protection from inside the concrete rather than on the surface. This results in a low gloss finish with non slip benefits. Ideal for areas where non slip is a concern, such as residents occupied by the elderly, pool decks, high slope surfaces, tumbled stone and *unsealed Impressed Concrete surfaces which tend to have poor absorbency ratings.
DIRECTIONS: For new installations, wait a minimum of 60 days prior to cleaning and sealing applications. [Step 1] Remove all stains with the appropriate STONESAVER stain cleaners. [Step 2] Clean the entire surface with STONESAVER Concrete Cleaner & Surface Prep to remove efflorescence, dirt and tire marks from surface pores (Do not use the Surface Prep cleaner on new unsealed Impressed Concrete surfaces as it will remove release agent and any two tone effects. Only power wash lightly). Proper cleaning will enhance your paving stones true colors and allow for proper sealer to surface bonding. Thoroughly rinse all cleaners with generous amounts of water and ensure the surface is completely dry prior to applying sealer. We strongly recommend following all instructions prior to any sealer application. [Step 3] For best results, use a lint-free high pile roller and a metal paint tray to apply STONESAVER Penetrating Low Gloss Sealer. Surface and sand joints must be fully dry (minimum 24 hours after cleaning). Apply at temperatures above 18o C (65o F). Apply a heavy coat to fully saturate the surface. Wait 15 minutes and back roll surface with a dry roller to soak up any sealer which has not been absorbed. For increased gloss, apply a second coat by rolling in a cross direction than the first coat. Allow first coat to dry prior to second coat application (usually 30 minutes). Allow sealed surfaces to dry for 24 hours before using.
NOTE: Applying a second coat will increase gloss and reduce traction. Not to be used over glossy sealed surfaces. Allow such sealed surfaces to wear away prior to applying STONESAVER Penetrating Low Gloss Sealer.
COVERAGE: 3.78 litres / 1 Gallon covers approximately 9 to 11 sq. m. (100 to 120 sq. ft - Per Coat). Coverage can vary dramatically with the type and porosity of the surface as well as width of sand joints.
