NOTE

Coverage rates are intended as a guideline only. The texture and absorption characteristics of
the surface will determine the actual coverage rate. Over-use may result in the formation of an
undesirable surface film.

PREPARATION

Surface cleanliness is critical to the final appearance of a substrate treated with Westox Stain
Shield. All oil, grease, form release agents and air pollution deposits must be removed prior to
application. New concrete or masonry restoration work must reach full 28 day cure strength
before application. Allow 48 hours drying after pressure cleaning or rain before application.
Application should be carried out by brush or roller.
This product is not suitable for application by spray equipment.

APPLICATION

Westox Stain Shield is a single component solution and ready to use from the container.
To ensure best application, the substrate surface temperature should not be below 5°c or above
35°c, coverage will depend on the porosity of the substrate.
Apply in a uniform manner in sufficient quantity to completely wet out the substrate.
Overlap each pass to avoid gaps and areas of insufficient coverage. Then apply the second
coat of stain shield while the first coat is still damp. Note: Colour enhancement or darkening
may occur on some material. A small test area should be applied and approved prior to full
application.

STAIN REMOVAL

Stain Shield is formulated to allow for the prompt removal of stains. Small minor stains can be
wiped off using a dry cloth or removed by using an absorbent material. Water blasting and
steam cleaning may be used in conjunction with an alkaline degreaser cleaning agent on large
areas or more stubborn stains.
Stains must be removed as soon as possible.

CLEAN UP

Wash all equipment immediately after use in white spirit.
