WATER-REPELLA

WATER-REPELLA is a penetrating, invisible and breathable sealer that protects porous tile, natural stone, paving and grout from damage caused by water and salts. Treated indoor and outdoor surfaces become easier to clean, maintain and keep looking good for longer. WATER-REPELLA is an economical sealer for engineering concrete, terracotta tile, cast stone, paving, limestone, brick and grout.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
WATER-REPELLA is suitable for a wide variety of applications, including building facades, floors, walls, swimming pool surrounds, patios, garages, kitchens and public and private entertaining areas.

BENEFITS
WATER-REPELLA able to greatly reduce water uptake and minimise moss growth, freeze thaw spalling and efflorescence; non film-forming; able to work without changing the appearance of the surface – keeps the original look; suitable for indoor and outdoor use; able to breathe so there is no build-up of subsurface moisture, allowing it dry out, and very alkali resistant – won’t breakdown in contact with cement-based materials.

Application rates
Total application rate is approximately one litre per two to eight sq. metres (20 to 80 sq. feet per quart) depending on absorption.

How to use
1 ALWAYS TEST PRODUCT ON A SMALL AREA FIRST and allow a 24 hour cure time to determine the ease of application and desired results.
2 Ensure surfaces to be treated are dry, clean and free of residues.
3 Product is to be applied without thinning.
4 Generously saturate the surface with product using a low-pressure hand spray, a clean brush, or similar. Surface should have a mirror-like “wet” look for 3-5 seconds. Avoid contact with surrounding areas.
5 After 10 minutes, repeat Step 4. Total application rate is approximately one litre per two to eight sq. metres (20 to 80 sq. feet per quart) depending on absorption.
6 Allow 10 minutes for product to penetrate surface then polish surface with a clean white dry cloth to remove excess product.
7 Clean equipment with water.
8 Sealer will not prevent surface etching or wear and may lighten or darken some surfaces.

Precautions
Do not take internally. Apply when surface temperature is between 5 – 35 ºC (40 – 95 ºF). Avoid moisture contact with the surface for six hours after application. Protect surrounding areas from over-spray. Keep away from drains, plants, water and soil. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Use a positive pressure respirator if ventilation is inadequate. Wear suitable solvent-resistant gloves, protective clothing, safety goggles and an organic vapour respirator during application. Avoid applying in windy conditions. Wash hands thoroughly.

Active content
Less than 10 per cent active content in water.

Pack size
5 & 20 litre (1.3 US gallon, 5.3 US gallon) plastic drums.

Aqua Mix Aqua Stain is a concentrated translucent stain.

DESCRIPTION/FEATURES:
Aqua Mix Aqua Stain is a concentrated translucent stain
designed to change the color and enhance the natural texture of
porous adobe clay tile. Aqua Stain for Saltillo is available in five
designer colors: Adobe Red, Fresco Peach, Piso Blanco, Spanish
Oak and Terra Cotta. May also be used as a pre-grout coating
to protect porous adobe tile from grout staining when used a
minimum of 2 hours before grouting. Allows moisture vapor
transmission.

g
USES:
• Saltillo, and other high porosity Adobe clay tile
• Effective for interior and exterior applications
METHOD OF APPLICATION:
1) Read entire label before using
2) SHAKE WELL before using
3) TEST A SMALL AREA according to application instructions,
with a 24-hour cure time to determine desired results
4) Allow new installations to cure 24 hours before applying Aqua
Stain for Saltillo
5) Surface must be clean and free of existing sealers or coatings
6) Aqua Stain may be used undiluted if a darker stain is desired or
diluted with up to 8 parts water for lighter, more translucent
stain
7) Pre-dampen tiles with water. Select a small, manageable area of
4 to 6 sq. ft. (.35 m2 to .55 m2) and apply Aqua Stain for Saltillo
with a dense sponge or lint free cotton towel from a shallow
dish. For best results, apply to individual tiles by hand. Rub into
the tile in a circular motion using as much or as little stain as
needed to achieve the desired appearance from the test area.
8) If too much stain is applied or streaking occurs, immediately
rework the area with a clean, damp sponge or towel and simply
rub out the area using small amounts of water
9) For both interior and exterior applications, use Aqua Mix Seal
& Finish Low Sheen to seal, protect the color, and provide a
durable low-sheen finish. If used on an interior application, and
a high-sheen finish is desired, apply Aqua Mix Floor Shine &
Hardener over the Seal & Finish Low Sheen.
10) Clean applicator tools with water after each use.
