AFM Safecoat Polyureseal EXT is a premium quality crystal clear acrylic urethane that provides a tough, durable surface for exterior use on decks, floors, patios and Concrete. Can also be applied to raw wood or wood stained with Safecoat wood stains, and concrete or previously painted surfaces that are properly prepared.
Coverage: Safecoat Polyureseal EXT may be rolled, brushed
or sprayed. The coverage will vary with surface porosity and
profile.You can expect up to 400 square feet per gallon on
a smooth surface and between 250 to 350 square feet per gallon
on a rough surface. For best results apply two thin coats.
(Use 1/4” or 3/8” nap roller cover).
Drying Time: Dries within 30 minutes and can be recoated
in 4 hours. Ready for use 12 hours. Drying time will vary with
weather conditions, air circulation and temperature.
Application: Brush, roll or spray. DO NOT SHAKE. Shaking will
cause air bubbles. Stir gently and thoroughly before application.
This product appears milky when wet, but dries rapidly to a beautiful
clear coating. Thinning is not recommended.
Surface Preperation Wood: Remove wax, oil, silicone, tsp/soap, oxidation, loose
peeling paint or varnish, or any foreign matter/contaminants.
Apply test patches before undertaking large areas to assure
good adhesion and lack of surface con-tamination. Wood
staining should be completed before applying finish coats.
Sand wood with the grain only. When surfaces have been
sanded, dust and vacuum thoroughly to remove debris and
then use a damp rag to remove dust before applying finish
coats. Wood surface may be dampened to raise grain,
sanded, and then wiped free of dust before applying stain or
finish. Moisture content of wood should be below 12% for best
results. To achieve a satin finish on wood, apply multiple thin
coats of Safecoat Polyureseal EXT Gloss until the surface is
completely sealed, followed by one final coat of Satin.
Surface Preparation/Cementitious: Clean the surface to be
coated by removing any oil, grease, or other contaminants that
might interfere with the proper adhesion of Safecoat Polyureseal
EXT. Ensure that cementitious surfaces are structurally
sound and fully cured a minimum of 28 days. Test the floor
for vapor drive in accordance with ASTM D4263. Mechanical
profiling is the preferred floor-preparation method. Mechanically
profile the floor to a medium-grit sandpaper texture and
remove curing and parting compounds and other surface
hardeners and floor coatings. Acid may be used to etch bare
concrete floors to the proper profile when mechanical abrasion
is impractical. Make sure the surface is thoroughly clean before
etching. Etch all unpainted cement with 1 part 10% muriatic
acid to 1 part water. Allow to stand 10-15 minutes then
rinse clean with water. After etching, neutralize acid with baking
soda or soda ash then rinse thoroughly with water. A properly
etched concrete surface should resemble the texture of
fine or medium sandpaper. Let dry thoroughly before applying
coating. Test area: Apply a test area to ensure proper appearance
IMPORTANT: Do not apply late in the day or when dew, rain,
fog or mist is likely (moisture will damage the fresh paint film).
Apply at temperatures above 50 degrees F. Do not apply if
temperatures below 45 degrees are expected within 24 hours.
Cold weather or excess humidity or a sudden temperature
drop will greatly affect any finish at the time of application.
Dampness can dull the gloss. Do not paint in direct sun. Use
a clean brush or roller. For maximum durability, we recommend
at least two thin coats.
Clean-up: Clean tools and hands with warm soapy water and
Health Precautions: As with all coatings keep container
tightly closed and out of the reach of children. Do not take internally.
Always use adequate ventilation. If you are chemically
sensitive, always test for personal tolerance.
