Driveseal

Description:

A solvent based clear film forming, sealing and dust-proofing coating. Has good flexibility, is long-lasting and will not yellow, crack or peel when properly applied. Cemix® Driveseal has a positive penetration into the surface. Cemix® D8riveseal is recommended for exposed aggregate driveways. Cemix® Driveseal is a clear thermoplastic solvent based sealer that protects and highlights the colour and texture of the underlying concrete surface. It has been developed exclusively as a drive and paving coating. Major uses include domestic driveways, outdoor entertainment areas and also commercial applications such as building forecourts. Use on cobblestone, bluestone, concrete and imitation slate surfaces as well as other high traffic surfaces requiring protection.

Typical Applications / Uses:

  • It has been developed exclusively as a drive and paving coating.

Advantages:

  • U.V. absorber – the coating, even clear, will NOT yellow, even in harsh tropical sun.
  • Hard film – the coating is hard with limited flexibility, to resist scratching and the abrasive effect of car tyres.
  • Mark resistant – the coating has been designed to be as resistant to marking from black rubber tyres as possible.
  • Fast drying – the system is based on a fast drying solvent, so the treated area can be returned to use rapidly. Usually within one day.
  • Solvent based system has much improved water resistance, compared to a water based system, where water pooling will cause damage to the film, whitening, and ultimate failure.
  • Easy to use – application by brush, roller or spray unit.
  • Ideal for coloured concrete driveways. ­

Substrate Preparation:

Ideally this sealer should be applied on new freshly laid cured concrete. The surfaces should be water blasted and made clean, free from grease, loose particles, dirt, paint, curing compounds etc. Moss or algae growth should be removed with a suitable treatment and washed with clean water.

Application:

Cemix® Driveseal Stir thoroughly before use. Ensure surface to be treated is clean and free of dirt or other loose material. Remove any grease or oil, water blasting may be necessary. Make sure surface is dry before applying Cemix® Driveseal by brush, broom or spray. New concrete must be at least 28 days old. In most cases only one coat is required, however, some porous concretes may require two or three coats to achieve adequate film build as protection. Clean up with mineral turps or similar solvent. The expected lifespan of Cemix® Driveseal could be affected by location, weathering and traffic that the sealer is subjected to. In exposed heavy traffic areas, recoating may be necessary after 12 - 18 months. In light use areas, such as domestic driveways, the coating will last several years, in as new condition. Re-coating is simply a matter of cleaning the surface, removing any loose film, followed by a solvent wipe and applying new sealer over the old. No stripping is necessary (unlike a polyurethane sealer) meaning a driveway can be back in service much quicker.

NOTE: There is not a sealer suitable for all types of pavers, tiles, or other surfaces. Never apply more product than is being absorbed into the surface you are sealing. If product is pooling on the surface, brush the excess off. If you feel no product or very little product is being absorbed, stop and seek technical assistance. Always do a test area first to approve the look and feel before doing the entire area. Ensure there is no rising damp as this will make the sealer surface cloudy. Over application can make the surface slippery especially when wet. Avoid applying this sealer on steep driveways, on shiny surfaces/pavers especially next to swimming pools.Thoroughly agitate contents before use.

The data shown above reflects typical results based on laboratory testing under controlled conditions. Reasonable variations may occur on site.

Limitations:

  • High film build will make smooth surfaces slippery when wet.

Cleaning:

Spray or roller equipment should be washed out immediately after use with water.

Storage / Shelf Life:

Twelve (12) months when stored in unopened, original containers. Storage area should be not exposed to extreme temperatures. Do not expose to direct sunlight in storage.

Precaution:

Cemix® Driveseal is flammable and should be used with adequate ventilation. Beware of cigarettes and naked flames near uncovered containers. Keep away from children. Do not splash into eyes. Wash thoroughly with water and seek medical advice immediately. If ingested seek medical advice immediately. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection. Cemix® Driveseal is not recommended for applications below ground, areas subject to hydrostatic pressure, or as a cure for rising damp. Contact Cemix® for further technical advice for these applications.
