Application Tips for MasterSeal M 200 

Ensure that you refrain from applying the Sonoguard Base Coat heavier than the recommended wet 25 mils / dry 20 mil application per layer. If you need to increase the thickness of the coating, you can add layers and cure them. Additionally, allow ample time for drying between layers. Do note that MasterSeal M 200 cures in 12−14 hours when tested at 73 °F (23 °C) and 50% relative humidity.

When stored properly, MasterSeal M 200 has a shelf life of around nine months for the 55-gallon drum and one year for the 5-gallon pail. We at Metro Sealant recommend that you store this product in unopened containers in a cool, dry, and dust-free area away from direct sunlight.
