Application Guide

Tools

Application by spray, brush, broom or roller is suitable.

Coats

The solution should be applied to saturation without pressure and in several (2-4) coats.

Test Patch

It is essential that you test on Terracotta pavers before using to ensure that the original colour and appearance is unchanged.

The reaction of Nutech Silicon Sealer on different brands and batches of pavers will vary greatly and individual jobs should be thoroughly tested before sealing whole jobs.

A number of pavers on every specific job should be individually tested to satisfy the client that the sealed appearance of the Pavers is satisfactory.

Application guidelines are provided:
Concrete & Terracotta: 0.3 – 0.5 L/m2
Plaster: 0.5 – 1.0 L/m2
Sandstone: 0.4 – 0.7 L/m2
Brick Wall: 0.4 – 2.0 L/m2
Cement Sheet: 0.1 – 0.3 L/m2
Natural Stone: 0.1 – 0.3 L/m2
Aerated Concrete: 0.5 – 2.0 L/m2

Storage

The container must be stored at temperatures not exceeding 30 degrees Celsius and protected from direct sunlight.
