Breathable, Immediate Application Solvent Based Sealer
*ADDED ANTI-FUNGAL PROTECTS SEALER FILM FROM MOLD, MOSS & ALGAE
SB-8700 Wet Look Joint Stabilizing Sealer is an advanced premium acrylic sealer that is ‘rain safe’ 90 minutes after application and will not yellow under exposure to sunlight. It is a 3 in 1 product, it enhances surface tone with semi-gloss finish, protects the substrate surface and stabilizes joint sand. SB-8700 is specially formulated with an anti-fungal designed to inhibit the growth of mold, moss and algae on the sealer film when applied to horizontal or vertical surfaces. SB-8700 will penetrate the substrate and provide a protective layer on the surface that is resistant to mild acid, alkali, and salt attacks. SB-8700 will increase the stain resistance of the surface and allow easier cleaning, maintenance, and extended wear. SB-8700 can be applied immediately after paver installation, as it is breathable and will not trap naturally occurring efflorescence and moisture. SB-8700 is a solvent based product with a consistency of water and is clear in appearance when applied. SB-8700 is designed as a one-coat application but a second coat may be applied if desired. It will deeply enhance the surface tone with a semi-gloss finish. Cured sealer is freeze resistant to -60°F (-51°C) and is stable up to a temperature of 180°F (82°C).
Joint Stabilizing Sealers can be used just as a sealer for pavers, concrete and other masonry surfaces without joint sand stabilization.
Ideal for concrete and clay pavers, flat and stamped concrete, or masonry surfaces such as stucco, retaining walls, concrete walls and exposed aggregate. Also works on limestone, sandstone and natural paving stones.
PREPARATION: TEST FIRST on a small inconspicuous area to determine the suitability and if desired results are achievable with this product on your specific surface. The surface should be thoroughly clean and free from oil, dust, loose material, and previously applied sealer other than SB-8700 prior to sealer application. If needed, prepare surface with Surebond Cleaners before sealing. Thoroughly rinse all cleaner residue prior to sealing. Allow surface to dry for a minimum of 24 hours after cleaning and/or rain before sealer application. For optimal joint stabilization, the paver joints should be filled with dry, correctly graded jointing sand that meets the ASTM C144 standard. The top level of the sand should not exceed the bottom of the chamfer or 1/8” below the surface on non-beveled or tumbled paver surfaces. Compaction is recommended after sweeping sand into joints to minimize voids. Use a vibratory compactor for concrete pavers and a rubber hammer and piece of wood (2”x4”) for natural stone to seat the joint sand into the setting bed. A leaf blower is recommended to remove dust, debris and fine sand particles from the surface before sealing. Cover/protect nearby landscape, vehicles and buildings from overspray during application.
APPLICATION INFORMATION: Apply when day and night temperatures are between 40°F - 95°F. Avoid windy conditions to keep sealer spray from drifting. NO pre blending or mixing required. Do NOT dilute. Apply by airless sprayer, hand held (pump-up) sprayer, or short nap (solvent resistant) roller. Sprayer/equipment should be of solvent resistant design with neoprene or Viton type fittings. Hold sprayer nozzle perpendicular to the surface and overlap each coat. If spray and back-roll application is used, use a short (1/4”) nap, solvent resistant roller IMMEDIATELY AFTER SPRAYING as the product dries quickly. Short nap will ensure even application. If applying by roller only, it is advised to constantly maintain a wet edge, and to keep the roller wet with sealer resin to avoid potential lap marks or surface mottling upon drying. Do not roll back and forth excessively, as this may cause excessive bubbling. Re-rolling immediately after film starts to become tacky can cause the roller to become stringy. For joint stabilization, the surface should be flood coated using coverage guidelines. Flood joints to ensure proper sand penetration for stabilization and use a soft foam squeegee to direct excess material into the joints. It is recommended to then back roll to even out the sealer on the surface to prevent pooling. SB-8700 is designed for a one-coat application but if desired a second coat can be applied only after the first coat has dried to the touch. NOTE: Excessive applications can cause surface to become slippery
DRY TIME: Surface will be dry to the touch in 20-30 minutes assuming 65- 85°F. Low surface or air temperature will extend dry times. Protect the surface from dust, rain, condensation, and traffic while drying. If dry, area can be open to foot & vehicular traffic in 24 hours depending on site conditions.
CLEAN UP: For tools and equipment use xylene or toluene.
MAINTENANCE/RE-APPLICATION: Sealed surfaces should be properly maintained following SEKSurebond’s Restoration and Maintenance System guidelines to get the best long-term performance from both the pavement and SB-8700. Keep surface clear of buildup of dirt, grime and stains by rinsing with cold, clean water. If staining of surface does occur, Surebond sealers are compatible with Surebond multi-use and specialty cleaners which can be used to remove general dirtiness, organic and inorganic stains like oils, food and beverages and mineral deposits from the surface. Test cleaners in inconspicuous area prior to cleaning. Be sure to check dilution rates for all cleaners to determine if they are ready to use or to determine appropriate dilution rate especially for sealed surfaces. Efflorescence should be removed using Efflo Off and a pressure washer, in conjunction with agitation from a natural fiber brush. Care should be taken to ensure that excessive pressure is not utilized, as it may erode joint sand and could damage the surface itself. Thoroughly rinse all cleaner off the surface before sealing. SB-8700 re-applications may need to be carried out every 3 - 5 years depending on the type of surface and environmental/site conditions.
STORAGE: Store locked up in original packaging in a cool, wellventilated place. Keep container tightly closed when not in use. Do not allow to freeze.
SB-8700 is a highly flammable liquid and should be stored away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources.
SHELF LIFE: 2 years when properly stored VOC CONTENT: <400 g/L
LIMITATIONS: Protect sealer from freezing and store in a cool place when not in use. In winter, keep in heated area. This sealer is not recommendedfor marble, granite, ceramic tile, and polished surfaces with a high gloss as they do not absorb the sealer. A test area is ALWAYS recommended to determine product suitability and compatibility with your specific surface before use and to verify if desired results are achievable. Due to the inherent variability of natural stone and clay products, long term performance may vary. Please consult with SEKSurebond prior to sealing if there are concerns. Do not use SB-8700 in areas subjected to strong solvents, such as gasoline or brake fluid. The use of an anti-slip additive is recommended for increased traction on surface inclines or around consistently wet areas such as pool deck surrounds. Do not use below grade or where water is always present. Never try to seal wet or damp surfaces. A minimum temperature of 40° (5°C) must be maintained for a period of 24 hours prior to application. Surface temperature should not exceed 95°F (35°C) during application. Work should cease in inclement weather (rain or strong wind).
