MicroSealer is a highly penetrative solution specially formulated to react with hydrated cement both at the surface and to a depth of up to 15mm.
The Silicate active ingredients form monolithic structures within the concrete which are long-lasting and durable and will improve surface wear characteristics.
Additionally, a silicone resin component cures to form water repellent properties in the concrete thereby improving even further the resistance to surface water absorption and / or lime efflorescence.
New concrete floors may be treated after a period of curing (approx. 14 days). However, power-floated floors are not suitable for treatment.
Please note that MicroSealer will not prevent excessive laitance from delaminating.
Surface preparation to remove excessively weak material by mechanical abrasion is essential.
It is also advised that surface weakness in floors with a deficiency in cement content may not be successfully treated by chemical hardening nor is MicroSealer suitable as a surface preparation prior to painting.
Water-based / odourless
Reduces dusting of old and new concrete
Inhibits lime efflorescence
Extends floor life
Reduces penetration of oil/water
Easy to use
Remove surface dirt, grease, oil and other contaminants.
Open pores by scraping the floor vigorously with a hard broom or wire brush, followed by soft brooming (or vacuum) to remove dust.
If the floor is wet washed at this stage, leave to dry before treatment.
Stir MicroSealer thoroughly and pour evenly over the floor surface – a plastic or galvanized metal watering can with a fine rose is suitable.
Covering capacity will depend on porosity but an average target is 4-6m²/litre per application. Sweep the dressing backwards and forwards to ensure even saturation and satisfy the absorption of the floor. AVOID FORMING PUDDLES.
Allow to stand for 24 hours between coats. The floor can be used during treatment. The number of coats required will depend on porosity of the floor.
Applications should continue at 24 hour intervals until the surface is no longer dusting after rubbing (2 -3 coats is normally sufficient). Do not use at temperatures below 5°C.
NB. It is very important to remove excess MicroSealer from the surface with a sponge or mop ten minutes after application in order to remove any unreacted material from the surface. 24 hours after the final application swill the floor down with clean water and brush well.
MICROSEALER IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE WITH FLOOR PAINTS.
First Coat: 1 litre per 4m² - 6m²
Subsequent Coats: 1 litre per 6m² - 8m².
