Formulated from solvent thinned 100% acrylic resins, it provides an extremely durable finish that penetrates and seals the surface, while providing excellent resistance to surface powdering, oil and grease stains, and provides superior resistance to moisture. Easy to apply, it provides excellent coverage and adhesion, excellent wear and weather resistance, and it resists yellowing. It provides superior UV resistance, has excellent product versatility, and its high gloss finish enhances the color of the surface, seals and waterproofs the surface, and helps resist hot tire pick-up.

GENERAL: The entire surface area to be painted should be clean, dry, sound, and free from dirt, grease, oils, waxes, mildew, mill scale, form release agents, curing compounds, and any other surface contaminants that may adversely affect the performance of this coating material.
PAINTED SURFACES: PaverSeal is formulated primarily for application to new or unfinished surfaces, applied over itself, or other similar solvent thinned acrylic coatings. Prior to applying PaverSeal to any previously painted surface, it is recommended to apply a small sample of PaverSeal to a small area of the existing finish to test for compatibility. If wrinkling, lifting, excessive bubbling slow drying or any other defective result occurs; the existing coating should be completely removed.
NEW SURFACES: MASONRY & CONCRETE: All new concrete and masonry surfaces should be allowed to properly dry/cure for approximately 30 – 45 days, in accordance with industry standards. The surface should be tested for pH and alkali levels and should not read higher than 8.5 – 10.0 level. Clean surface thoroughly to remove contaminants, oil, grease and embedded chemicals with Richard’s #248, Shield’s All Oil & Grease Remover. The surface area to be painted should be porous. Dense, non-porous concrete surfaces must be properly acid etched with muriatic acid mixed with water, 3 parts water to 1 part acid. Apply acid solution to the surface using a plastic garden sprinkler can. Allow the solution to effervesce or boil on the surface until it stops, (approximately 10 – 15 minutes). Do not allow floor to dry prior to rinsing. Add acid solution to keep wet, if necessary. Neutralize floor with an alkaline solution of 1 cup of baking soda (or 8 oz. of ammonia) mixed with one gallon of water. This mixture will neutralize any unspent acid. Rinse the surface thoroughly with clean water. Check pH of rinse water with pH range paper. Rinse water should have a pH of 6 - 9. If pH is outside of this range, rinse again and re-check pH. Properly etched concrete should have a texture feeling similar to medium (180) grit sandpaper. Allow 24 - 48 hours to dry
MILDEW: Surface areas affected by mildew should be treated with a commercial mildew removal and/or cleaner product following the manufacturer’s application and safety directions. Rinse thoroughly with clean water, and allow a minimum of 24 hours to dry thoroughly.
Richard’s Paver Seal Clear Sealer/Finish may be easily applied with a quality brush, roller, or spray equipment as follows; NOTE: This finish may become slippery when wet. Therefore, when used on horizontal surfaces, such as floors, patios, or any floor area exposed to moisture, the use of a non-skid additive is recommended, such as Richard’s SG-60, Skid Guard Non-Skid Additive.
Surfaces to be painted should be completely dry for 24 hours before application.
For best results, apply by brush or roller to effectively work material into surface pores.
It is recommended to apply two (2) finish coats to achieve best results.
Avoid heavy build-up of material.
Brush Applications: When applying by brush, use a quality nylon or polyester bristle brush, or a quality combination of both, and apply a smooth and generous coat on smaller surface areas, such as cutting-in larger surfaces and painting trim.
Roller Application: When applying by roller cover, use a quality smooth, medium or rough nap roller, depending on surface porosity, and apply an even and generous coat in a “W” or crisscross motion, avoiding any excessive respreading or reworking.
Spray Application: When applying by airless spray equipment, use a unit with a minimum of 2000 psi of pressure, with a 0.013 – 0.015 fluid spray tip.
Rough or textured surfaces coated using spray equipment should be back-rolled to ensure a uniform film, even coverage and proper adhesion.
Maintain a wet edge during application by brushing, rolling or spraying into previously applied coating area.
Apply when surface and ambient temperatures are above 55° F and below 90° F. Do not apply when surface and air temperature is within 5° of the dew point.
Avoid exterior paint application when weather conditions are threatening, and late in the day when there is a threat of moisture condensing on wet paint.
