Clear Coat is a high quality, speciality silane/siloxane cream product for hydrophobic impregnation of absorbent, neutral to low alkaline mineral substrates. USES TOPDEC Clear Coat is formulated for application onto absorbent exterior masonry surfaces, producing a water repellent finish with minimal effect on the surface appearance. Protect brickwork, stonework and most forms of unprotected masonry. ADVANTAGES Excellent penetration Odourless Minimises efflorescence Excellent breathability Improved thermal efficiency Easy to handle and apply APPLICATION & PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS PREPARATION All surfaces shall be dry and free from contamination such as loose particles, decayed matter, moss, algal growth, laitance and all traces of mould release oils and dirt. All areas must be sound and free from cracks and other possible access points for driving rain. APPLICATION TOPDEC Clear Coat should be applied by brush, roller or suitable airless spray. It is strongly recommended that a trial area be applied to assess coverage rate. Slight darkening may occur on some substrates although this will usually fade over time. Application rates will vary according to the type of substrate but should typically be in the region of 100g – 200g per m² (approx. 20 - 40m²/5 litres or 0.12 – 0.25 litres per m² depending on absorbency and texture of the surface). Care should be taken to protect painted surfaces, plastics and glass from contamination during application. For full preparation and application instruction, refer to the technical data sheet which is available from TOPDEC on request. CLEANING TOPDEC Clear Coat may be removed from equipment using water and detergent. Do not use thinners to remove material from the skin. LIMITATIONS TOPDEC Clear Coat has been formulated for application to clean and sound neutral/low alkaline masonry surfaces. TOPDEC Clear Coat should not be applied to new highly alkaline surfaces such as un-weathered concrete and cement render. Care shall be taken to ensure that anything which may interfere with the surface penetration and reaction shall be removed. The application of TOPDEC Clear Coat should be carried out at temperatures between 5ºC and 25ºC. Do not apply when rain is likely. TOPDEC Clear Coat may slightly darken some substrates and white cement. This is often a temporary effect. On such surfaces, a trial area shall be undertaken to the satisfaction of the specifying officer. PRECAUTIONS Health Safety and Environmental Information This product is for Exterior Use only.
