DIRECTIONS FOR APPLICATION: Concrete must be allowed to cure a minimum of 28
days. All repointing must be completed and allowed to cure for at least 3
days. Concrete replacement and repair must be completed prior to product

STONESAVER Water Repellent may be
applied over a damp surface although fully dry surfaces are preferred to
achieve maximum penetration into the substrate. Ensure to remove any
standing water prior to application.
A test application is essential on each surface
to be treated to ensure product compatibility, accurate coverage rates and
the desired water repellent results.
STONESAVER Water Repellent should
be applied using low pressure / high volume sprayer < 35 psi. 3+ g.p.m.
with a wet fan spray tip. Sprayer, hoses and gaskets must be solvent
Horizontal: Working from lowest elevated
area, spray surface until full saturation is reached (pond for at least 5
seconds) and remains moist for a few minutes. Back roll any pooling areas 30
seconds after spraying. If a second coat is required, it should be applied
after the first coat is absorbed but still moist.
