“WET-LOOK” EXPOSED AGGREGATE SOLVENT-BASED SEALER
EXPO-GLOSS exposed aggregate sealer is a transparent, high solids, film-forming, curing, sealing and dustproofing compound that improves resistance to staining and wear. EXPO-GLOSS is specifically formulated to enhance the beauty of natural stone in exposed aggregate surfaces, while providing maximum surface protection. When properly applied, EXPO-GLOSS produces a glossy “wet-look” finish.
EXPO-GLOSS meets maximum VOC content limits of 700 g/L for concrete curing and sealing compounds as required by the U.S. EPA Architectural Coatings Rule.
EXPO-GLOSS is ideal for freshly finished exposed aggregate surfaces. It is also equally applicable for use on old exposed aggregate surfaces.
1 Gallon (3.79 Liter) Cans
5 Gallon (18.93 Liter) Pails
55 Gallon (208.20 Liter) Drums
300 – 600 ft.²/gal. (7.37 – 14.73 m²/L), depending on surface finish.
Surface Preparation…… EXPO-GLOSS may be applied over freshly finished exposed aggregate as soon as the surface moisture has disappeared. On existing exposed aggregate, clean the surface thoroughly and rinse well. EXPO-GLOSS may be applied to damp surfaces.
Mixing…For optimum performance, gentle mixing or agitation is recommended. CAUTION: TO AVOID FOAMING, DO NOT MIX EXCESSIVELY.
Application Method…Apply using a good quality natural bristle brush or a short nap roller. Spread in a thin, even coat, being careful to avoid puddling.
Drying…Drying times may be extended depending on application rate, temperature, humidity and project conditions. Protect the freshly coated surface from traffic, dust, condensation and rain while drying. The surface will be slippery while drying and may become slippery under certain conditions.
Cleanup…Clean tools with an aromatic solvent immediately after finishing application.
DO NOT DILUTE. FOR EXTERIOR APPLICATION ONLY. Do not use on concrete or on surfaces other than exposed aggregate. Do not apply to painted or frozen surfaces. Apply a test patch in an inconspicuous area before applying to the intended surface.
EXPO-GLOSS should not be applied on hot surfaces in direct sunlight. These conditions cause rapid evaporation, which does not allow the film to form properly. Under these conditions, the film may peel, bubble and/or turn white (blush).
EXPO-GLOSS should not be applied to exposed aggregate subject to excessive moisture. Entrapped moisture in a solvent-based sealer may cause the film to peel and/or turn white (blush).
Do not apply EXPO-GLOSS over stained wood joint dividers. This may cause stain to spread while the sealer is wet. Continuous or long-term exposure to ultraviolet light may cause the film to discolor. If discoloration must be avoided, we recommend using our non-yellowing DECRA-SEAL™ product. Avoid brush or roller contact with wood partitions. The surface may become slippery under certain conditions.
Avoid direct contact with this product as it may cause irritation of the eyes and/or skin. Inhalation of vapors may result in transient central nervous system depression. EXPO-GLOSS is combustible (flash point: 114° F). EXPO-GLOSS should not be utilized in locations where food items are present.
