ADVANCED APPLICATION GUIDELINES
Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer must be allowed to cure for at least 4 weeks before undertaking testing.
Achieving optimum stain repellence
Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer’s specially designed sealing molecules migrate through the pores and find sites to bond by a process of chemical reaction, over 4 to 5 weeks! As more Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer bonds inside the pores, the material becomes more oil and water-repellent. After 24 hours of cure time, the product will show only adequate stain repellency and zero penetration, but after 3 weeks cure time the results will be significantly better.
Achieving maximum depth of penetration
The modified silane molecules are hundreds of times smaller than the best modern competitor (fluorocarbon /siloxane) sealers, which cannot penetrate into the pores of dense materials, such as polished granites. With 4 hours of dwell time and 4+ weeks of cure time, typical penetration into Kashmir white granite is 7 to 13 millimeters.
APPLYING ON DENSE / POLISHED SURFACES
For extra penetration Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer may be left to penetrate for up to 4 hours on smaller polished surfaces such as countertops.
APPLYING ON SMOOTH SURFACES
Once Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer has been left for at least one hour to penetrate a smooth (honed / polished / antiqued) surface, a squeegee can be used to speedily remove the bulk of the product residue. Then, the small amount of remaining excess product / residue can be easily polished off with dry absorbent cloths. If the Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer residue has begun to dry and cannot be polished off with a dry cloth, the cloth can be moistened with a small amount of Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer to aid removal
APPLYING ON HIGHLY POROUS MATERIALS
Highly porous / absorbent surfaces, such as sandstone and soft varieties of limestone should be pre-sealed before applying Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer. Newly laid floors should also be pre-sealed prior to grouting, so that the grout is easy to remove and does not cause stains. Once the grout is dry and all grout haze has been thoroughly removed, Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer can be applied over the tiles and grout.
APPLYING ON ROUGH SURFACES:
On rough surfaces, globules of Waterborne Dense Stone Sealer may collect in gaps and pits. Use a paint brush to remove these globules and spread them out.
