Products : Thin Veneer Installation Systems : TVIS Care : TVIS™ Penetrating Masonry Sealer
Economical, easy-to-apply, penetrating sealer that resists most common oil-based and water-based stains. Unlike some sealers, it will not leave a difficult-to-remove residue on the surface. Low odor, water-based, neutral pH formula. Use as a pre-sealer before filling joints with pointing mortar for easier cleanup and to reduce cement haze on stone or veneer surface. TVIS™ No VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) formula helps provide better indoor and outdoor air quality compared to similar traditional products.
Surface should be clean, dry and free of waxes, coatings or finishes. Aqua Mix® Heavy-Duty Tile & Grout Cleaner will clean the surface and remove wax finishes. For new installations and best performance allow pointing mortar to cure 48 – 72 hours before application. Will not change the appearance of most surfaces. Test in a hidden area to ensure desirable results.
MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED. MAY IRRITATE EYES AND SKIN. Wear skin and eye protection. Contains potassium hydroxide and potassium methyl siliconate. If in eyes, flush with water for at least 15 minutes. If on skin, wash with soap and water. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. Seek medical attention. Keep out of reach of children.
USE CHEMICAL-RESISTANT GLOVES, such as nitrile, when handling product.
Apply liberally using a hand-pump sprayer. Allow it to penetrate for up to 5 minutes. Immediately wipe off any excess. If first coat has been absorbed, apply a second coat following the same procedure. Porous surfaces may require additional applications. Conduct a test to see if surface is completely sealed after 2 hours by applying drops of water on the surface. If it penetrates immediately, apply an additional coat. If a residue is visible on the surface after drying, remove it with water and a sponge or white polishing pad immediately after application.
Pre-Sealing/Mortar Release: Porous surfaces such as manufactured stone, split brick or veneers, can be stained by pointing mortar during installation. Sealing the surface before filling joints will make pointing mortar removal much easier. Apply one coat of sealer according to directions after manufactured stone or veneer has been bonded for a minimum of 24 hours, or apply to front face of manufactured stone or veneer before installation.
2 – 3 hours.
Clean tools and hands with soap and water immediately after use.
Properly installed product requires no special maintenance.
