- Mix Ratio 2A:1B Stir Part A separately for 1 minute until it is smooth and uniform color and consistency.
- Add Part B side to Part A and slowly mix for another 2 minutes.
- Allow product to stand for 5 minutes.
- After 5 minutes’ induction time dilute the mixture with clean water. 1-part sealer with 1-part water (1:1). The water will thin out the sealer, so it lays out correctly and dries quicker. Once the water is added, the product is ready to use.
- Working Time: The dilute sealer has a 60-minute pot life. Only mix enough material that can be used in 60 minutes. Change out roller after 60 minutes of use. Periodically remix any sealer that has sat for more than 10 mins to keep all ingredients in suspension
- Professional use only.
- Pour the mixed material into a roller tray. Do not dip from a narrow container. For best results use a high quality 3/8 nap microfiber non-shed rollers.
- Use at least two microfiber rollers – One for rolling and spreading. Then second roller for finishing. The Finishing roller is used to take out any roller lines and remove excess material
- Spread material out thinly with 1st roller. Roll the same direction pulling the roller towards you. Move along the piece from left to right. When you reach end of the piece go back to where you started and roller again to spread the material out evenly.
- Then switch to 2nd roller to gradually roll out any roller lines with the finishing roller. Keep rolling in the same direction. When the rollers lines disappear STOP. Do not roll it dry.
- Allow each coat to dry a minimum of 15 minutes or until tack free and then repeat for subsequent coats.
- Do not allow H-13 to puddle in any joints. Make sure the room is well lit. This will help avoid missed spots when applying a clear sealer.
- Allow the surface to dry a minimum of 24 hours before moving the counter-top and wait 48 hrs. before exposing treated surface to water. Full cure is 7 days.
