Powerseal

POWERSEAL is a revolutionary product, which as proven displays superior characteristics as a concrete top coat and sealant in one. It is suitable for dry concrete based flooring of warehouses, indoor factories, service stations and garages where a very tough and hard wearing finish or coating is required.

POWERSEAL is one of the toughest if not the toughest available coatings in the market.

Features

  • Excellent durability
  • Excellent resistance to fats and oils and even brake fluids

Directions For Surface Preparation And Application

Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet before handling or use.

Surface Preparation

Concrete should be allowed to cure for a minimum of 28 days. The water dampened concrete should be acid etched with Hydrochloric Acid solution diluted 1 part acid to 4 parts water.

Spread diluted acid over floor with broom or mop. A white haze of bubbles indicates proper etching action and this must be obtained. Allow the acid solution to remain on the concrete for 1 – 2 minutes or until the bubbles cease to form.

Rinse thoroughly with clean water before the acid solution dries, otherwise salts will form which are difficult to remove.

Water should not bead up on a properly etched floor and the concrete should have a profile similar to fine sandpaper. If profile is too smooth or if water does bead up, the acid etching was insufficient and must be repeated.

Allow the floor to dry completely before coating.

All surfaces to be sealed or coated must be free from dust, dirt, oil, grease and other contaminants.

Clean all surfaces with degreasant and flush with copious quantities of clean water, scrubbing to remove all contaminants while washing down the area. Repeat this application until all residues of contaminant are removed.

Allow surface to thoroughly dry prior to sealer application.

Application

Stir thoroughly before and during application to ensure uniformity, making sure that any suspended pigment (if coloured) is completely re-incorporated.

Concrete usually requires 1 – 2 coats of Powerseal. Large areas of concrete can be coated with a rubber squeeqee

The First coat must be Powerseal tinted or untinted primer to assist penetration and adhesion.

Thin first coat of Powerseal up to 10% of Polyurethane AuSeal Solvent. Apply quickly and liberally by quality brush, mohair roller, lambswool pad or squeegee.  Apply coating evenly with broom or roller. Uneven application may result in slowing down of curing time.

Allow recommended drying time and apply evenly one full Second coat without dilution.

Apply second coat, if required, within a 4 – 16 hour period depending on the grade of product and the drying conditions. Refer drying/recoat section.

Powerseal may be applied by spray application. Ensure all precautions and requirements of legislation involving the spraying of Isocyanate materials are complied with. Refer to AuSeal for further information.

Powerseal cures by reacting with moisture in the atmosphere.

For all applications of Powerseal, pour out only sufficient Powerseal for immediate use into a clean, dry container, as it will prematurely gel if exposed too long to the air.

Do not return unused Powerseal to the container. Reseal containers tightly immediately.

Clean material from spout thread before resealing and avoid prolonged storage of part filled cans.

Do not apply Powerseal in thick layers, as bubbles may form in the coating during the drying

 

Cleaning

POWERSEAL can be removed from tools and equipment with Xylene. Use only Polyurethane AuSeal Solvent. After cleaning, wash applicators in a final rinse of methylated spirits.

Precautions

POWERSEAL IS A COMBUSTIBLE LIQUID.

  1. Provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
  2. Store away from naked flames and sparks.
  3. Ensure you are familiar with MSDS prior to usage.
  4. As the product dries with the reaction with the moisture of the atmosphere, keep containers tightly closed at all times and pour a small amount of Xylene on top of every drum when opened.
  5. Recoating time should be strictly followed otherwise intercoat adhesion may cause a problem.
