CHRYSTAL SEAL

 

Solvent Based Acrylic Sealer

 

MarbleCrete Mix Chrystal Seal is formulated with acrydite resins which are extremely high in chemical resistance and also have an extreme hardness.  In fact they are within four points of plate glass hardness.  Chrystal Seal has a tack free drying time of 7 minutes; weight per gallon at 60 degrees F is 7.28 lbs.; total solids 14.80%.  The acrydite resins are non-yellowing; they are as transparent as water and are cut with a combination of hydrocarbon solvents which insure a good penetration into the surface.  The acrydite resins are extremely resistant to ultraviolet rays and over a long period of time will show absolutely no discoloration and will not amber, even under exposure to the sun with exterior applications, regardless of the colors in the matrix in either white or gray cement.

 

MarbleCrete Mix Chrystal Seal does not apply a surface coating, but is a complete penetrating process in which it penetrates the matrix, marble, tile or any masonry surface to insure a thorough and complete seal, making the surface impervious to stains of oils, greases, water, acids, or practically any other type of common chemical discoloration.

 

MarbleCrete Mix Chrystal Seal is the only clear resin sealer that permits a permanent application without discoloration and will intensify color and natural beauty of MarbleCrete, stone, terrazzo and masonry surfaces.  Chrystal Seal penetrates into pores and increases density and durability, keeping dirt and moisture on top of surface so they are easily cleaned.  Tests indicate Chrystal Seal has better anti-slip properties than most other sealers.

 

MarbleCrete Mix Chrystal Seal is the only clear resin sealer that permits a permanent exterior application without discoloration.

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

1.                  Clean surface with MarbleCrete Mix Clean’Brite, rinse surface thoroughly and allow to dry completely.  When renovating an old surface, strip surface with MarbleCrete Mix Stripper, then wash with Clean’Brite.  Rinse surface thoroughly and allow to dry completely.

2.                  Stir Chrystal Seal well.

3.                  Apply Chrystal Seal to clean dried area using a lambs wool applicator, natural brush, low-pressure garden type sprayer or airless sprayer.  Mop or rollers are NOT recommended.  (We recommend test applications on expendable surfaces before applying to a final project)

4.                  Chrystal Seal is a VERY quick drying sealer.  Apply seal in one direction only.  Avoid overlapping.  Do not go back over seal just applied as it will re-dissolve original seal, causing gumming or streaking.

5.                  Let Chrystal Seal penetrate and dry thoroughly (normally 3-4 hours) before exposing to use.

6.                  If a second coat is desired it’s best to allow first coat to dry for approximately 24 hours.

7.                  Clean tools, applicators and spray equipment with MarbleCrete Mix Chrystal Seal Reducer.

 

Coverage:  300 to 600 square feet per gallon, depending on porosity of surface material.

 

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:  MarbleCrete Mix Chrystal Seal is FLAMMABLE.  Keep away from heat and open flame.  Keep container closed.  Stir thoroughly and apply only to completely dry surfaces.  This product is not to be used where hydrostatic conditions are present.  If applied to a damp surface, seal will dry cloudy and may take from two to three weeks for cloudiness to disappear, if at all.  Use with adequate ventilation and avoid prolonged breathing or skin contact.

 

MarbleCrete Mix Chrystal Seal is a solvent based sealer.  It is not to be applied in the vicinity of food items.  It is recommended to allow at least 24 hours of drying time before exposing finished projects to areas with food, or food preparation areas.
