TRUE SHIELD Hydrophobic Sealer
FEATURES & BENEFITS
•Easily diluted with water for ready use
•Produces a hydrophobic treatment that inhibits water absorption
•Excellent performance and stability at (5–20%) active ingredient levels
•Deep penetration of absorbent surfaces due to small molecular structure provides added repellency
•Reduction in water absorption reduces spalling due to freeze-thaw and efflorescence, thereby increasing the life of the substrate
•Penetrating treatment will not change appearance of substrate
•Solvent-free and releases little Volatile Organic Compound(VOC) upon application
•Water-dilutable silane/siloxane emulsion
•40% active ingredients as supplied
TRUE SHIELD Hydrophobic Sealer is supplied as a 40% active silane/siloxane emulsion and should be diluted for use to between 5% and 20% depending on the application and substrate to be treated. As with other silane-based water repellents, upon proper application, the formulated product will penetrate and provide water repellency by chemically reacting with the substrate. Treated substrates are hydrophobic and normally retain their original appearance. To insure desired performance and appearance, the product should be evaluated by applying to a small representative area in an inconspicuous location.
HOW TO USE Dilution TRUE SHIELD Hydrophobic Sealer dilutes readily with water to make stable dilutions between 5% and 20% active ingredient levels. It is recommended to use demineralized or distilled water when formulating. When using tap water, dilution stability should be tested. Salts or minerals in the water can affect the stability of the emulsion. For best results, add the water portion to the emulsion rather than adding the emulsion to water. Mix Ratio is 9 parts water to 1 part emulsion. (9:1 water to emulsion) If desired, an additional preservative may be used for extended storage of diluted product.
