AFM SafeCoat MexeSeal
MexeSeal is a low odor, waterbased, medium gloss clear sealer. It is suitable for use on porous interior tile or masonry surfaces where oil and water repellency are desired. It is ideal for long term protection against food, oil and water stains on residential or commercial floors. MexeSeal is non-hazardous and non-flammable - a total replacement for high solvent content systems.
MexeSeal is recommended on substrates such as the following; unpolished marble, limestone, granite, sandstone, slate, fireclay (brick, tile, terra cotta, pavers), concrete (brick, tile, precast panels, cast in place). Always test in small, inconspicuous places before full application. MexeSeal is generally not suited for polished surfaces; test first. Not recommended for use on modern satillo or quarry tiles without special care. Satillo or quarry tiles generally contain salts and other contaminants sensitive to application of water based products. White efflorescence flushing may occur. It may be necessary to repeatedly remove contamnination and repeat MexeSeal application until all contaminants are
ADVANTAGES / SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS:
? Hard, durable medium gloss finish.
? MexeSeal is suitable for recoating many waterbased sealers (always test first).
? Slip resistant in dry conditions.
? Good resistance to scuffing, black heel marks, oil and water. Easy clean up with dry or damp mop - dirt and foreign matter do not penetrate the treated surface.
? Safely used by and for the chemically sensitive.
? Fights indoor air pollution, seals in the outgassing from the substrate.
? Very low VOC content, meets or exceeds all federal and state air quality regulations, including California.
? Contains no formaldehyde.
SURFACE PREPARATION: All surfaces must be clean, dry, free from dirt, dust, efflorescence, grease, wax, oil, silicone, tsp/soap, mill scale, oxidation, loose peeling paint or varnish, or any foreign matter/contaminants. Remove all mildew before coating any surface. When acid has been used for any reason, surface must be completely neutralized.
APPLICATION: Always have adequate ventilation. Stir gently. Do not shake container (shaking causes air bubbles). Apply only in thin even coats, using sponge, brush, pad or appropriate spray equipment. Do not use a roller or rayon mop. Allow one hour to dry between coats, depending upon conditions. Two or more coats may be needed depending on porosity of masonry product. Close surface to traffic after application and until completely dry.
COVERAGE: One gallon of MexeSeal covers approximately 300 square feet in one coat depending on surface porosity.
CLEAN-UP: Clean tools and equipment while they are still wet with a solution of SafeChoice Super Clean and warm water.
DRYING/CURING TIME: Under normal conditions, MexeSeal dries to touch in one hour, is recoatable after two hours and may be opened to traffic after 8-24 hours, depending upon conditions. Normal conditions include a clean, dry surface, access to fresh air flow, a dust free environment, moderate humidity, and temperatures above 55° F. Thick application, high humidity or conditions other than normal will cause MexeSeal to dry and cure more slowly.
MAINTENANCE: Mop floor periodically with clean water or an odorless, dye-free, non-volatile all purpose cleaner.
LIMITATIONS: MexeSeal is made without formaldehyde preservatives. Do not contaminate. Store in airtight containers. Do not use when indoor or surface temperature is below 55° F. Do not apply where product will be immersed in water, such as fountains, pools or below ground area.
