Micro-Seal With Graffiti Control: Graffiti Protection & Moisture Resistance

Rainguard Micro-Seal With Graffiti Control Saves Time & Money.  It’s a premium, water-based, silane siloxane anti-graffiti coating and water repellent in one product for unpainted porous vertical and horizontal surfaces. Quick and Easy spray application, apply 2 coats same day and you’re done.

Micro-seal With Graffiti Control combines high-quality penetrating chemical solids with an acrylic surface treatment component to provide a clear, deep-penetrating, and non-film-forming chemically-reactive water repellent and graffiti barrier.  It’s designed to withstand multiple graffiti removals without having to re-apply and yet protect against damage from wind driven rain.  Contains no silicone oils, paraffin wax or urethane.

Works on a wide variety of unpainted concrete, block, brick, stucco, masonry and wood porous surfaces. Micro-Seal with Graffiti Control with MICRO-LOK penetrates deep into porous surfaces to provide long-lasting and virtually indestructible water-repellent protection  that creates a micro-molecular chemical and mechanical bond between the water-repellent chemicals and the substrate.  It is not affected by sunlight and will not yellow.

The acrylic surface component makes graffiti easy to remove with Rainguard’s VandlClean Graffiti Remover.

Micro-Seal With Graffiti Control is available in both ready-to-use 1 gallon and 5 gallon containers and 1 gallon concentrate (makes 10 gallons after adding water) and 5 gallon concentrate (makes 50 gallons after adding water).

HOW TO USE?

FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS
1. MICRO-SEAL WITH GRAFFITI CONTROL should be applied using low-pressure airless or hand pump spray equipment.
2. Avoid atomizing material by using a spray tip size of .035 to .051. Spray head should be held 8 to 12 inches from the surface so that the flood coat runs down the wall approximately 6-12 inches below the point of application.
3. Avoid application in windy weather.
4. Trigger gun off at the end of each pass to avoid using excessive
materials. Stop all applications only at corners, joints, seams, or edges.
5. Apply second coat wet on wet after first coat has been allowed to penetrate for 20-30 minutes. Immediately roll or brush out runs and drips to ensure even appearance.

Chart above shows 1st coat coverage rate and 2nd coat coverage rate at 2x rate of 1st coat when 2nd coat is applied 20-30 min after 1st coat (example:  Dense Masonry surface project 1st coat 150 sq’/gallon and 2nd coat at 2x rate or 300 sq’/gallon).   When applying 2nd coat 1 to 3 days after 1st coat, apply 2nd coat at rate 50% more than 1st coat chart above>

GRAFFITI REMOVAL:
In many instances, non-abrasive household cleaners safely and effectively remove tagging. However, in the event tagging can’t be removed with these cleaners, then use Rainguard’s VANDLCLEAN SUPER GRAFFITI REMOVER for best results. Follow manufacturer’s recommendations and instructions for use. In addition, warm water power-washing has also been known to assist in the removal of tagging. Please refer to the manufacturer for additional assistance.

PRECAUTIONS & LIMITATIONS
1. All surfaces to be coated should be clean of any dirt and grime, efflorescence, lime run, form oils and release agents, grease, mud, excess mortar, and mold and mildew, etc.
2. All cracks should be pointed or caulked. All voids, bee holes, masonry surface defects and openings such as conduits, pipes, drains, door frames, vents, air conditioner openings, electrical openings, control joints, or any dissimilar materials should be repaired using urethane or other approved patching.

STORAGE
Store materials in a well-protected area between 45° and 90°F. Avoid freezing temperatures, direct sunlight, and moisture. Keep away from heat sources.
