SOLITAIRE is a new one step, super tough, water based sealer that provides maximum protection on all types of concrete, stone, terrazzo, glazed and unglazed tiles and pavers. Being U.V. stabilised, it is suitable for areas that are exposed to the elements such as entry foyers and decks, as well as factory and warehouse floors, although it may cloud in wet conditions. Its non yellowing film is tough, glossy and chemical resistant. More importantly, it dries and cures quickly to enable fast re-use.
The formulation offers a simple to use, non toxic, odour free application which is ideal for food processing areas where solvent based sealers cannot be used.
The following characteristics of SOLITAIRE were determined in our laboratories and limited exterior exposure studies.
Resistance to water blushing
SOLITAIRE displayed excellent resistance towards water blushing in comparison to the leading commercial acrylic and styrene/acrylic emulsions. Not only did the clear films of SOLITAIRE show a minimal amount of film blushing under both ambient (25°C) and elevated (45°C) water soak temperatures, but they also completely recover to visually clear films when the water is removed.
Low Water pick-up
SOLITAIRE also has excellent resistance properties, showing low clear film water pick-up (low water swelling).
Block resistance/Low Coalescent demand
SOLITAIRE gives a higher level of block resistance while the V.O.C. level is very low.
Based on our current exposure data, SOLITAIRE has excellent exterior weatherability resistance.
Reduced water vapour permeability
SOLITAIRE helps protect the substrate from moisture due to the low water vapour permeability of SOLITAIRE. This is important in preventing efflorescence.
