Sealers | PICS UK

Sealers

PICS produce 3 distinct sealers – Low Solid Sealer, High Solid Sealer and PERMASEAL.

Low Solid Sealer

PICS Low Solid Sealer (LSS) is a pre-mixed, colourless blend of high-grade acrylic resin polymers and aromatic solvents.

Purpose

To impregnate a PICSPAVE slab and combine the benefits of curing, hardening, dust proofing and sealing.

Special properties

  • Hardens & seals concrete permanently
  • Special blend of polymers do not soften in hot temperatures nor become brittle in freezing conditions
  • High viscosity ensures full penetration into the dense surface matrix creating a true in-surface seal (ISS)
  • Non-re-emulsifiable, non-blooming when wet
  • 100% inter-coat adhesion
  • Curing Agent – allows slab moisture emigration prior to reaching full hardness
  • Non-yellowing
  • Anti-carbonising agent
  • Mechanical bond with surface matrix prevents delamination
  • Tough, Durable and Hard Wearing
  • Designed for use with PICSPAVE to bring out and enhance the full depth of colour of the CSH (Colour Surface hardener) and RA (Release Agent).
  • Slip Resistant
  • Petrol, Diesel, Oil & Grease resistant

Application instructions

The slab must be fully surface dry after washing off (Protimeter 4.5 and below) and all traces of RA (Release Agent) removed by pressure washing and RAW (Release Agent Wash).

Brush slab to remove any dirt or debris.

Control joints must be cut prior to LSS application. LSS must be spray applied using a pressure spray unit equipped with VITONTM seals and solvent resistant hose and body. Apply in two equal applications, keeping sprayer head moving to avoid pooling. The first aapplication must be brushed into the surface and allowed to dry past tacky prior to applying the second coat.

Avoid application in strong, direct sunlight – do not apply if rain is likely within 3 hours of application.

Approximate coverage

4 to 6m2 per litre per application – two applications required.

High Solid Sealer

PICS High Solid Sealer (HSS) is a pre-mixed, colourless blend of high-grade acrylic resin polymers and aromatic solvents.

Purpose

To impregnate a PICSPAVE slab and combine the benefits of curing, hardening, dust proofing and sealing.

PERMASEAL

Permaseal is a Solvent-free, clear, UV light-stable solution designed to penetrate and stabilise the jointing sand of block paving and pre-cast flagstones.

Purpose

Protects jointing sand from erosion thus reducing movement and weed infestation in block paved surfaces.

PERMASEAL joint stabilising solution is the effective way to bind the jointing sand in-situ on all commercial block paving applications.

PERMASEAL Solvent Free is designed to penetrate and bind joints in brick and block paving. The sealer penetrates the jointing sand, stabilising joints and preventing weed infestation, burrowing of insects and wind or rain erosion.

Special properties

  • Low maintenance requirement
  • Minimise the loss of jointing sand
  • Protects block surface against contaminants
  • Remains flexible in joints
  • Increases wear resistance of blocks
  • Resists high winds and assists with cleaning
  • Enhances block appearance
  • Proven concept worldwide
  • Increases block stability
  • Long-term benefits to block paving performance

PERMASEAL has elastomeric properties which ensures that joints remain flexible and also allows for the easy removal of blocks and access to the substrate without expensive remedial action.

Typical Applications

  • Supermarket Car Parks
  • Petrol Station Forecourts
  • HGV Loading Areas
  • Estate Roads
  • Airport Runways & Taxi-ways

For particularly demanding applications we recommend PERMASEAL P.U. It incorporates an aliphatic urethane pre-polymer resin, which provides high chemical resistance and flexability.

PERMASEAL is manufactured to BS EN ISO9002 Quality Standards.
