Sealer ColorShot for Brick and Concrete Pavers

Sealer ColorShot is a concentrated liquid color additive specially designed to be mixed with high solids water-based clear sealers. When ColorShot is added to the sealer it will produce a  semitransparent stain that, seals and rejuvenates the original color of the pavers. Water-based ColorShot does not release unpleasant fumes, and it is environmentally friendly.

 

Features

  • Decorative concrete
  • Stamped concreteColorShot Colors All 4 colors have been specially formulated to produce the most durable UV and alkali resistance.  All the colors are totally compatible with CoverTec high solids water-based sealersApplication Properties 
    Application temperature 45°F to 105°Fminutes*
    Application rate 0.5 to 4 FL oz per 5 gal of sealer

     

    Packaging

    ColorShot is supplied as a 2 fl oz concentrate. A 2 FL oz concentrate makes up to 10 gallons of tinted ready-to-use sealer. The more color shot you add the more solid the finished color when the sealer dries.

     

    Surface Preparation

    Surface must be solid, completely clean, free of oil, wax, grease, asphalt, paint, dirt, loose surface material and any contaminates that will act as a bond-breaker. Weak concrete surfaces must be cleaned down to solid sound concrete by mechanical means.

     

    Determine if the concrete is porous with a simple water test. If the water drops in and darkens the concrete immediately, then prep may not be necessary. If the surface is a troweled surface, mechanically grind, sand, or chemically etched the concrete to open the pores for better penetration of sealer stain.

     

    Dilution/Mixing

    If using 1-part Sealer like CoverSeal AC30 add 0.5 to 2 FL oz ColorShot per gallon of sealer

     

    If using 2-part Sealer Like StrongSeal Wetloot add 2 to 4 FL oz per 5-gal kit. Always add the ColorShot to the A-side and mix before adding the B side.

     

    For a darker color and a higher gloss, apply a second coat.  Wait until the first coat is dry, then apply a second coat following the same dilution method as before.

     

Features

  • UV resistant
  • Compatible with overlays, as a topical stain
  • May be applied over previously sealed surface
  • Low Odor
  • Fast Air Dry
  • Low VOC
  • Interior and Exterior application

Main Uses

  • Concrete floors and other porous substrates.
  • Polymer modified overlays and microtoppings
  • Over existing sealed surfaces
  • Decorative concrete
  • Stamped concrete
  • Bricks and concrete pavers

Packaging

3 fl.oz  Super concentrate that makes 1 gallon & 15 fl.oz  Super concentrate that makes 5 gallons.

Dilution

Dilute concentrates using water, acetone, or denatured alcohol.

Coverage

400-600 ft2 per diluted gallon (9.8 -14.7 mper liter)  depending on porosity of the concrete. High porosity concrete will be on the lower end and trowel finished concrete will be on the higher end.

Determine if the concrete is porous with a simple water test. If the water drops in and darkens the concrete immediately, then prep may not be necessary. If the surface is a troweled surface, mechanically grind, sand, or chemically etched the concrete to open the pores for better penetration of the stain. If there is a sealer present and in good condition, apply a drop of acetone on the surface and rub with a finger to determine if the stain will penetrate when mixed in acetone.  Surface will get sticky or tacky when rubbed, indicating that it can be penetrated with acetone.

Color

All the colors have been specially formulated to produce most durable UV and alkali resistance.  All the colors are totally compatible with one another in both the wet and dry stage. See ColorStain color charts for available colors.

Application Method

Application is easiest with a pump sprayer with a conical tip. Tip size of .05 to .15 gpm at 40 psi is recommended to reach coverage rates of 400-600 s.f. per gallon.

There may be residue left on the surface, most notably when the carrying agent is acetone, and when applied to a surface that has low porosity. You may wish to remove the excess residue with a white buff pad when working on a flat surface, but not necessary on broom-finished concrete.

Brush/Sea Sponge Application: For application areas where coverage and product control are warranted, apply ColorStain with a sea sponge or traditional bristle brush (e.g. corners and walls). Using this method of application may result in the appearance of mechanical lines.

Note: Roller application methods force absorption resulting in mechanical lines.

Secondary/Highlight Color: To achieve increase color depth or mottled appearance. A secondary or highlight coat can be applied as soon as initial ColorStain color is dry to the touch (approximately 15 minutes).  All ColorStain colors are compatible, thus can be mixed, sprayed simultaneously and layered to achieve a desired appearance.

Limitations

  • Do not use on Non-porous substrates (e.g. metal, resin, fiberglass)
  • Do not use for severe cold weather applications
  • Do not apply in rain or wet conditions or at temperatures below 45°F (7°C) or above 105°F (40°C)
  • Do not use in areas of constant water submersion.
  • For polymer overlay systems, water is not recommended for dilution.
  • Roller application methods force absorption resulting in mechanical lines.
