SCL Water-Based Penetrating Sealer

Designed to repel water-based fluids effectively from entering a porous stone. An ideal sealer to apply on Limestone before polishing work.

TECHNICAL BULLETIN
Descriptions/Features
SCL WATER-BASED Penetrating Sealer is designed to repel all water-based fluids effectively from entering into the porous stone. Ideal to apply to the top, bottom and all edges of all types of marble and granite.

Properties:

  • Allow vapor transmission & does not form a coating
  • Give a hydrophobic treatment.
  • It will not change the color texture of a polished and unpolished surface marble and granite stone.
  • An ideal sealer to apply on limestone flooring before diamond cutting to prevent excessive water entering into the porous stone. This will prevent yellowing and severe efflorescence to occur on limestone after the polishing work.

Application on the type of stone:

  • Bottom, top and all edges of the stone
  • Suitable to apply on all type of natural stones such as marble, limestone, granite, pebble, stone, sandstone, terrazzo, compressed marble and all other porous stone.

Direction to use:

    • Clean the top surface of the stone with either SCL Neutral Clean (pH7.0) or SCL Stoneclean to remove all dust, dirt and soils prior to application.
    • Allow the stone to dry for at least 12 hours before applying SCL Water-Based Penetrating Sealer.
    • Allow 30 minutes in between coat is preferred. When applying SCL Water-Based Sealer.

on a polished stone surface, wipe off the excess resins with a dry clean cloth almost immediately (i.e. stone surface is 50% dry) after sealer application. At any one time, apply SCL Water-Based Sealer in small area to give enough time to wipe off the excessive resins. Wiping excessive resin away is also required when SCL Water-Based Sealer is applied on rough texture stone. If sealer is apply before polishing then wiping/buffing is not required.

  • Refrain the surface to contact with water (i.e. washing & mopping) for the next 48 hours. Walking on the urface is almost immediate.
  • Generally, one coat is sufficient for polished surface stone and two (2) or more coat of SCL-Water-Based enetrating Sealer shall depend on the porosity of the stone.

 

Approximate coverage for Limestone flooring:
One litre covers approx. 250sq.ft. to 300sq.ft.

Approximate coverage for polished marble and granite flooring:
One litre covers approx. 500sq.ft.
Actual coverage shall depend on the porosity of the stone.

Available packing size: 1-litre / 5-litres / 25-litres

Cautions:

  • Test a small area first.
  • Avoid using High pressure-jet washing method to clean the stone as high pressure-jet will reduce the sealer’s performance and effectiveness of the penetrating sealer.
  • Applying SCL Water-Based penetrating sealer on a marble surface does not make the marble surface become acid resistance.
