Application Information
Instructions for use

Surface Preparation

All surfaces should be clean, sound and uncontaminated.

This preparation should leave an exposed concrete, free from dust, loose particles, deleterious matter, oil, grease, chemical films and other contaminants.

This is best achieved by lightly sandblasting the surface where moss, algae or similar growths have occurred. Treatment with a recommended biocide should be done after sandblasting process.

Pre-Application

Test a small area of the surface (generally 1.0m x 1.0m section) before starting application of the sealer to ensure desired performance results, aesthetics & coverage rate. Allow 5-7 days for the product to fully react.

Application

IDROSIL XS is a single component, applied at full strength and never diluted. Can be used directly from the container, no mixing is required but stir first before use. Apply by brush, roller or low-pressure spray.

On vertical surfaces, IDROSIL XS should be flooded starting at the bottom working steadily upward.

For aggressive contamination, it is preferable to slightly sand blast the surface. Algae growth, if exists, should be treated with recommended biocide.

When used as a protective impregnation, a minimum of two applications is recommended. Thus, apply the second coat is still wet.

Cleaning

Equipment and tools used should be cleaned with SOLVENTE 10 immediately after use.

Recommendations

  • Prolonged contact with air should be avoided
  • Containers should be sealed when not in use
  • Ensure adequate ventilation
Additional Information
Health & Safety
