SHIELDS-ALL is a clear, 100% acrylic water repellent, sealer, and latex paint reinforcing additive which is formulated to provide superior protection from moisture penetration and the effects of weathering on a variety of properly prepared substrates.
Once applied it may be painted over with any type of paint or coating and may also be tinted and used as a latex stain for wood surfaces.
Shields All may be mixed with any latex paint to improve that paints flow properties and weatherability at a ratio of 1 part Shields All to 10 parts paint. Shields All cleans up easily when wet with water, is non-toxic to humans, animals and vegetation. ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE! Mildew Resistant Interior or Exterior Use.
SHIELDS-ALL acrylic water repellent and sealer can be applied to a wide range of above grade, interior and exterior surfaces including:
Concrete, stucco, brick, wood, masonry, metal, stone, drywall, tile, grout, Adobe, wood siding, masonite, asphalt and fiberglass shingles, split face block, EFIS, previously painted surfaces, chalked or alkaline surfaces.
SHIELDS-ALL can be applied to green masonry or concrete as a curing agent and surface conditioner to reduce alkali. In addition to providing water repellent protection, SHIELDS-ALL can be used as an under-seal/primer to promote adhesion with latex and elastomeric coatings.
SHIELDS-ALL is supplied ready to use. DO NOT THIN. Mix thoroughly prior to use. Easily applied with a quality brush, roller, airless spray and low pressure hand pump sprayer. Always apply material to test panel prior to general application.
Porous Vertical Surfaces: Start first coat application at the top of the wall. Apply flood coat with a 6"-8" rundown and back-roll material into surface voids. Apply second coat when the first coat is dry.
Vertical Concrete Surfaces: Surfaces shall be clean and free of form oils and release agents. Start first coat application at the top of the wall. Apply saturation coat and back-roll materials. Apply second coat when the first coat is dry.
Horizontal Concrete Surfaces: Apply 2 saturation coats to damp concrete to assist the curing and hardening process. Apply 1 saturation coat to existing horizontal concrete surfaces to dust proof surfaces. Remove excess standing or ponding materials with a clean roller.
Brick: Apply 1 saturation coat with run-down and back-roll material. Apply second saturation coat when the first coat is dry. Caution: New brick surfaces shall be allowed to weather for 12 months prior to application of material.
Stucco/Plaster: May be applied to stucco or plaster during the curing process or when fully cured. Apply 1 saturation coat and back-roll materials. Apply second saturation coat when the first coat is dry.
Chalked Surfaces: Apply 1 coat to chalked surfaces. Allow material to dry and check surface for chalking. Apply a second coat to surfaces as needed to control remaining surface chalk.
Wood: Surfaces shall be clean and bare. Pre-treat knots with a small amount of material. Apply a minimum of 2 saturation coats to wood surfaces. Apply second coat when the first coat is dry.
Use Shields All to reduce latex paint in lieu of water, makes latex paint "flow" easier, does not reduce gloss level and improves adhesion.
Coverage: Covers approximately 75-300 square feet per gallon depending on type of application and porosity of the surface to be treated.
Dry Time: Dries to the touch in 1 - 2 hours, may be recoated in 3 - 4 hours depending on conditions. Clean up any spills, painting tools and equipment with warm soapy water.
