- 1 quart.
- 1 gallon.
One gallon of Safecoat AcriGlaze covers approximately 200-400 square feet in one coat depending on method of application and surface porosity.
Under normal conditions, Safecoat AcriGlaze dries to touch in one hour and is recoatable after four hours. Normal conditions include a clean, dry surface, access to fresh air flow, a dust free environment, moderate humidity, and temperatures above 55 degrees F. Thick application, high humidity or conditions other than normal will cause Safecoat AcriGlaze to dry and cure more slowly.
Clean tools and equipment while still wet with a solution of SafeChoice Super Clean and warm water.
None required, water if needed.
All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from dirt, dust, grease, efflorescence, loose peeling or chalking paint. Dull glossy surfaces by sanding or washing with a solution of SafeChoice® Super Clean followed by a clear water rinse. Remove all mold and mildew and thoroughly clean followed by water rinsing. Remove efflorescence by washing with a 10% solution of muriatic acid and brushing, followed by washing. Repair all holes, cracks, etc. with an appropriate patching material. Do not apply over oil-based materials without first testing for compatibility.
Always use adequate ventilation. Intermix (boxing) all containers of the same sheen to ensure gloss uniformity before applying. Before using, mix coating thoroughly by gently stirring or rolling container to avoid air bubbles. Be sure to stir product thoroughly every 20 minutes during application. Do not shake container. Pour material to be used into another container before applying coating to avoid contaminating main container. Use a short nap roller or nylon brush. Spray any large masonry exterior surfaces. Care should be taken to avoid over agitation as it creates bubbles. Apply as a clear varnish as supplied. Two or three coats of gloss finish AcryGlaze will provide a wet look and offer better water resistance. Do not use when air or surface temperature is below 50ºF. Applying over oil-based paints and mediums may cause product to yellow; test on an inconspicuous area before doing large surface. Note: these instructions are intended to be general only and not exhaustive. The applicator should determine which preparation and techniques are best suited to the specific surface.
Unlike conventional coatings, Safecoat is made without formaldehyde preservatives or toxic mildewcides or fungicides. Do not contaminate. Store in airtight containers. Do not use when indoor or surface temperature is below 55°F. Do not apply where product will be immersed in water, such as fountains, pools or below ground area. Do not freeze.
As with all coatings and stains, keep container tightly closed and out of the reach of children. Do not take internally. Always use adequate ventilation. Wear a mask when sanding and avoid breathing sanding dust. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and avoid breathing of spray vapors and spray mist. If you are chemically sensitive, always test for personal tolerance.
