MasonRE Guardian is a stable, VOC compliant, water based, silane/siloxane blend, water repellent. MasonRE Guardian was developed to treat a wide variety of mineral substrates including architectural concrete, concrete block, split face block, pavers, stucco, porous and dense brick, clay tile, and exposed aggregate concrete.
Features and Benefits
Provides excellent water repellency to reduce cracking, spalling, freeze/thaw damage, chemical degradation, biological growth, efflorescence, and dirt pick up, thereby lengthening substrate life and reducing maintenance costs.
Provides excellent beading for improved aesthetics.
Superior storage stability including freeze/thaw stability for ease of use.
Low VOC emissions on curing; EPA compliant.
Formulated to minimize darkening effects thus not changing substrate appearances.
Good stability on highly alkaline surfaces for long term durability.
Physically and chemically bonds to substrates increasing coating life and making cleaning easier, thereby reducing maintenance cost.
Test substrate for surface compatibility and results before treating entire area.
Surfaces should be clean from dust, dirt, oils, grease, curing compounds, other coatings, efflorescence, and laitance before applying masonRE Guardian.
New concrete should be allowed to cure for at least 28 days before applying masonRE Guardian. Spraying on glass should be avoided.
Clean all glass before beginning application. Start at the bottom working your way up, flooding the surface sufficiently to allow 6”-8” of rundown. Single application is suitable for most surfaces. Porous surface may require a second coat. Protect glass as well as any areas not intended to be treated. If Guardian comes in contact with glass, immediately wash affected area with soap and water. Shading is necessary on sunny days. Maximum water repellency is achieved after 72 hours, depending on curing conditions.
MasonRE Guardian is not meant to seal cracks and not recommended for below grade applications where hydrostatic pressure can be significant.
Minimum Temperature for application 45ºF. Max substrate temp is 90oF
Packaging and Coverage
1 gallon, 5 gallon and 55 gallon drums are available.
Coverage rates are typically between 40-150 sq. ft. /gallon depending on substrate.
