How Monty Sealer Works
This sealer works by chemically reacting with the surface pores using nano-technology developed to create a protective barrier to water and oils. The active component is a molecule consisting of silicon, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms. The molecule has two ends, one hydrophilic the other hydrophobic. When applied, the hydrophilic end reacts with moisture retained in the substrate and breaks away to form another compound that reacts within the masonry lattice. This reaction forms a bond that is stronger than any mechanical or hydrogen bonding of conventional film forming sealers, the exposed hydrophobic end of the molecule changes the surface energy with the result that water and oils are now repelled, but the micro pores are still open enough to allow moisture vapour to escape making the treated surface breathable.
Monty Sealers long-life protection effectively repels dirt and contaminants from almost all surfaces including the most delicate surfaces such as natural stone. With proper care, surfaces will remain stain resistant for years. Monty Sealers innovative penetrating sealer forms a protective barrier that effectively prevents staining agents from being absorbed into the stones pore structure without changing the surfaces appearance or texture. Sealing with Monty Sealer is the first important step towards protecting your investment against harsh environmental attacks, Acid Rain, deterioration, contamination and freezing temperatures.
Applying Monty Sealer
Please note: This product is designed to be used on porous surfaces only. Do not use this product to seal a polished or glazed surface.
- Only to be applied after the surface is cleaned, failure to do so will result in surface sealer needing to be removed. We recommend Monty Cleaner for a deep clean prior to sealing.
- Surface to be treated should be clean and absorbent. Product can be applied to damp surfaces.
- Monty Sealer should not be applied in temperatures below 10°c.
- Protect any adjacent areas by masking to avoid splashes or overspray onto surfaces not intended to be treated.
- Apply this sealer liberally, by low pressure sprayer, lambswool applicator, bristle broom, paint brush or roller.
- Flood coat the surface to achieve a “wet” look. It is best to agitate the product into slightly denser surfaces.
- Leave for 5 to 20 minutes then reapply a second coat whilst still wet if needed.
- Do not allow the product to pool on the surface. Wipe or buff excess product off the surface after 5 minutes with a clean dry cloth or floor pad.
- Allow surface to dry, full curing will take 24 hours, however, surface can be walked on after 4 hours.
- Do not allow surface to get wet until the sealer has fully cured (24 hours).
