Protectosil® AQUATRETE SG is a multifunctional system that provides superior water and stain resistance and also performs as a sacrificial antigraffiti coating. The primary function of Protectosil® AQUA-TRETE® SG is to repel water- and oilbased materials that cause staining, thereby making cleaning easier. The unique multifunctional chemistry makes the Protectosil AQUATRETE SG inherently UV- stable. This feature allows longer surface repellency than offered by competing technologies. Protectosil® AQUA-TRETE® SG decreases these problems such as dirt buildup, staining and graffiti tagging. Questions? Contact us
The sacrificial antigraffiti properties protect surfaces from different types of graffiti, including spray paint, permanent markers, ink, bituminous paints, and other water- or solvent-borne paints. By reducing the ingress of contaminants and graffiti, Protectosil® AQUA-TRETE® SG prevents any adverse change in the surface appearance of the substrate. The natural moisture vapor transmission remains unaffected, leaving treated surfaces fully breathable and eliminating problems caused by entrapped moisture, including blushing and freeze-thaw damage to the substrate.
All mineral building materials, both interior and exterior, can be treated to prevent staining due to waterborne and oil-based substances. For use on concrete buildings, to mitigate silicate rundown onto windows.
For use with EFIS, to reduce water absorption and help keep material cleaner. For use in areas where food stains occur on mineral building materials, such as food courts, pedestrian malls, sports arenas and restaurants. For use on buildings, walls, sound barriers, piers, columns, bridges or other areas where unwanted graffiti generally appears. Other substrates that can be protected include sandstone, terra-cotta, hand- molded bricks, pressed cementitious tiles, ceramic, lime- stone, marble, granite other natural stones and various types of pavers including but not limited to concrete, clay brick tumbled and Wausau.
Will leave a residue on nonporous materials such as glass and metal. Shrubbery and plant life should be protected from overspray. Should not be applied if the surface temperature is below 40°F (5°C) or above 100°F (40°C), if rain is expected within 2 hours following application, if wind speeds exceed 10 mph or other conditions prevent proper application. If rain has preceded the application, the surface should be allowed to dry for a minimum of 8 hours.
