How long does it take to apply? The application is very quick providing the substrate is readily absorbent.
What size voids can it fill? There really is no limit; large voids in excess of 5mm across would first be filled with packing filler.
What types of fillers are used? Wherever possible to replicate the substrate. Suitable alternatives include; cotton, slate granules or builders sharp sand.
What are the visual side effects? There are very little. Initially, the surface would take on a wet look but would dry back to its original state.
How long does it take to become weather proof? Generally within 10 minutes of application. Longer in cool conditions.
Is the sealant hazardous? The liquid sealant is rated as an irritant. Normal precautions are to be taken to avoid skin and eye contact and inhalation of the vapour. Once the sealant has cured it becomes inert.
How expensive is the treatment? Relative speaking, the sealant has no diluents and as such all the liquid applied goes towards making the seal. Plus the fact that it is less likely to require further treatments as opposed to other propriety sealants that contain high levels of thinning agents.
How is the sealant applied? By any means available relative to the practicability of the application. For top down application of large structures the sealant can be applied using a spray lance. It may be injected under pressure or drip-fed to a localized area.
How many times can the treatment be applied? As many times as necessary in order to complete the absorption of the substrate and voids.
Can the sealant be applied by DIY? Yes. Acrylic120 is being made available in a DIY pack soon to be available on line and in retail outlets. This pack is designed for unlimited industrial, domestic and hobby use. Ideal for repairing broken items.
What type of substrates can be treated with Acrylic 120? Almost any substrate material – stone, brick, concrete, wood, metal, cloth, fiberglass, carbon fibre and combinations thereof.
What condition has the substrate to be in? For best results, the structure should be dry at a preferred temperature of 15-20 C . Weather saturated structures may need a period under cover before the sealant can be applied.
Is the cured sealant breathable? Yes. The sealant is hydrophobic when first applied, becoming less so in time. Thus allowing any residual water, trapped by the application, to escape.
Does the sealant have any adhesive qualities? Yes. It is a very good adhesive proven by items indicated in 11. above. The sealant will bind friable substrates together that have lost their natural cohesion.
Does the sealant impart any stress into the substrate? The sealant is designed to harmonize, by absorption and distribution within the substrate thereby dissipating any differential issues.
How hard is the cured sealant? The sealant becomes soft and flexible on curing, slowly toughening in time.
The porosity sealant from which Seek-n-Seal Acrylic C120 Impregnant formulation is derived, has the following approvals:
The vast majority of the automotive companies listed below have automatic in-line production impregnation systems.
