Safecoat Safe Seal is a multi-use, water-based, low gloss sealer for highly porous surfaces such as particle board, plywood, processed wood and porous concrete. Used primarily to reduce toxic outgassing: in particular, it is highly effective at sealing in formaldehyde outgassing from processed wood such as plywood, particle board and pressed wood. Safecoat Safe Seal is virtually odorless on application and odorless once cured.
NOTE: Safe Seal is a flexible membrane and remains slightly tacky to touch even when cured, surfaces treated with Safe Seal should generally be coated with a top coat such as paint.
SCS CERTIFIED - LEED QUALIFIED
Porous surfaces such as processed wood products, concrete, wood, new drywall, grout and plaster. If used as a grout sealer, wipe excess off tile with a damp cloth or sponge while still wet. Test surfaces first in inconspicuous areas to be sure product absorbs into surfaces completely. Excellent at controlling formaldehyde emissions of open faced and faced fiberglass batt insulation - simply fog spray surfaces. Safecoat Safe Seal improves the adhesion and bonding power of adhesives and coatings applied to treated surfaces. Apply a thin coat to the slab and bottom of the tile, for example, before laying adhesive (in this application no cure period is necessary; the adhesive may be applied while the Safe Seal is still tacky).
ADVANTAGES / SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS:
Highly effective at sealing in toxicity of underlying surface.
Safely used by and for the chemically sensitive.
Low odor, non-offensive to installer and occupant. Fights indoor air pollution, seals in the outgassing from the substrate.
Low VOC content, meets or exceeds all federal and state air quality regulations, including California.
Contains no formaldehyde.
APPLICATION: Always have adequate ventilation. Before using, stir Safecoat Safe Seal by gently rolling container to avoid air bubbles. Then apply as is, using a sponge, squeegee or appropriate spray equipment. It is important to apply in very thin coats. Thick coats will overly darken the color of underlying surface. For best results, this product should not be reduced. Use only during low or moderate humidity conditions. Milky appearance, dries clear. Apply only to a completely dry substrate. Correct application will often slightly deepen color of existing surface.
COVERAGE: One gallon of Safecoat Safe Seal covers approximately 350 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, Safecoat Safe Seal dries to touch in one hour and is recoatable after 2 hours. Normal conditions include a dry surface, access to fresh air flow, moderate humidity, and temperatures above 55°F. Thick application, high humidity or conditions other than normal will cause Safecoat Safe Seal to dry and cure more slowly.
LIMITATIONS: Safecoat Safe Seal is made without formaldehyde preservatives. Do not contaminate. Store in airtight containers. Do not use when indoor or surface temperature is below 55°F. Substrate to which Safecoat Safe Seal is to be applied must be completely dry.
