Thoroughly clean the surface to be treated. Clean newly constructed and re-pointed surfaces before application. Will not impair adhesion of most sealing and waterproofing compounds. Always test for compatibility. May be applied to slightly damp surfaces but best performance is achieved on clean, visibly dry and absorbent surfaces. Excessive moisture inhibits penetration, reducing the service life and performance of the treatment.
- Protect window glass before use.
- Don’t use in wind or when air or surface temperatures are hotter than 35°C.
- Try to keep off glass.
- Protect treated surfaces from water for 6 hours, if product is on window glass, clean as soon as possible with mild detergent and warm water.
Surface and Air Temperatures. Best surface and air temperatures are 4-35°C during use and for 8 hours after. If freezing conditions exist before application, let masonry warm up before application. The water carrier may freeze at low temperatures or evaporate in high temperatures. Both conditions impair penetration and results. Clean-up is more difficult from surfaces hotter than 35°C.
