INSTRUCTION FOR USE

DF105 is applied to porous substrates including concrete, limestone, tile and brick. DF105 offers excellent surface protection from water & chloride ion penetration and efflorescence.

Surface Preparation

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free of contaminants.

Method of Application

DF105 can be diluted by adding a thinner like toluent or xylene. The amount of solvent and coverage will depend upon the condition and porosity of the substance. Generally, we recommend 1:6 ratio of DF105 to thinner. One litre of DF105 with the recommended thinning ratio would cover an area of 250 sq. ft. approximately. For example, an area of 25000 sq. ft. will require 100 litres of DF105.

For vertical surfaces, begin application from the top, and allow material to run down several inches. Additional applications are recommended for highly porous materials. Water repellency will be evident within 24 hours.

An air-assisted air-less spray gun system is recommended. Brushing, rolling, or applying with a saturated cloth is also acceptable. For advice, please contact Silchem Sales .
