Coatings for metal, concrete, wood, stone and vinyl are non-breathable, waterproof coatings. They coat the surface of the substrate completely with a gloss, satin or matte finish (as specified) and provide a superior barrier against moisture, mold, stains, scratches and graffiti.
Terra Tech’s coatings all have less than 100g/L VOC’s, meet high air-quality standards and contain no known carcinogens under California Prop 65. There is no need for harsh chemical cleaning on these newly coated surfaces, significantly extending the life of the substrate.
Sealers, which can be used on almost any substrate – concrete, wood, stone, tile and fabric, are breathable, stain and water-repellent . They penetrate the surface of the substrate and are virtually invisible. They repel moisture, stains and mold from within the substrate. Because they are virtually invisible, they are ideal for use on historic and protected buildings.
Terra Tech’s sealers also have very low to low VOC’s and contain no known carcinogens under California Prop 65. They harm neither plants nor animals. These sealers are long-lasting and are easy to clean so maintenance costs are reduced and the life of the substrate extended.
Many of the metal, concrete and vinyl coatings and sealants are one pot systems. Merely shake, open the can and get to work.
Coatings are applied in a very fine layer. Concrete coat, for example, is applied at a thickness of 2.5 – 3.5 mls. The thinness of the coat speeds up application, resulting in cost efficiencies.
The coatings can be cleaned many times with a neutral, non-toxic mild cleaner. Clients will be able to easily clean their own graffiti without damaging the substrate while avoiding expensive graffiti removal fees.
All of the coatings are extremely durable. They have scored 39.11 on the ASTM Taber Abrasive test, 70-75 on the Rockwell scale and 7-7.5 on the Mohs scale. A diamond is 100 on the Rockwell scale and 10 on the Mohs scale. This means the coatings have a higher resistance to usual wear and tear. Expect years of protection before re-application is required.
Coatings are dry to the touch in 2-3 hours, thoroughly dry in 3-5 hours and fully cured in 7 days. The early drying time is particularly important in damp or unreliable climates – you don’t have to wait for a full day of fine weather to be able to effectively apply our products.
The coatings will not degrade as a result of exposure to UV rays. They won’t stop UV rays getting to a paint coat below, but they will significantly slow down its deterioration. It’s like putting sunscreen on your paint!
All of the coatings are easy to maintain – soap, water and mild cleaners are all you need to keep your surfaces in pristine condition. This saves maintenance work and cost – imagine not having to polish the floors in supermarkets, malls and hospitals.
These environmentally friendly coatings are water-proof and non-breathable, all with less than 100g/L VOC.
Terra Tech Molecular sealers are simple to apply.
The Multi-Purpose Sealer can be sprayed on using a garden sprayer or rolled on with a paint roller. Unlike other products which may take hours or even a day before you can apply a second coat, Multi-Purpose Sealer can be reapplied in 10-15 minutes. Multi-Purpose Sealer is fully dried in 30 minutes and can be walked on during installation as footprints won’t be left behind. Multi-Purpose
Sealer is water-based with zero VOC’s and won’t harm plants or soils.
Quick Seal & Enhance can be reapplied in 2 minutes from the initial application and is fully cured in 5 minutes. Colored stain can be added to Quick Seal and Enhance so you can stain and seal in one quick step. Quick Seal and Enhance has less than 20g/L VOC.
There is no need to strip these products prior to re-application. The sealers are water-repellent, will not degrade in UV light and are a cost-effective way to protect historic buildings when it is important that they do not look “sealed”.
Maintenance is easy and cost-effective with these sealers as the surfaces can simply be hosed down with water.
