Safecoat Safe Seal is a multi-use, water-based, low gloss sealer for highly porous surfaces such as particleboard, plywood, processed wood, and porous concrete. Used primarily to reduce toxic outgassing: in particular, it is highly effective at sealing in formaldehyde outgassing from processed wood such as plywood, particleboard and pressed wood. Safecoat Safe Seal is virtually odorless on the application and odorless once cured.
Note: Safe Seal is a flexible membrane and remains slightly tacky to touch even when cured, surfaces treated with Safe Seal should generally be coated with a topcoat such as paint.
Scs Certified - Leed Quality
Use On: Porous surfaces such as processed wood products, concrete, wood, new drywall, grout, and plaster. If used as a grout sealer, wipe excess off the tile with a damp cloth or sponge while still wet. Test surfaces first in inconspicuous areas to be sure the product absorbs into surfaces completely. Excellent at controlling formaldehyde emissions of open-faced and faced fiberglass batt insulation - simply fog spray surfaces. Safecoat Safe Seal improves the adhesion and bonding power of adhesives and coatings applied to treated surfaces. Apply a thin coat to the slab and bottom of the tile, for example, before laying adhesive (in this application no cure period is necessary; the adhesive may be applied while the Safe Seal is still tacky).
Advantages / Significant Benefits:
Highly effective at sealing in toxicity of underlying surface.
- Safely used by and for the chemically sensitive.
Low odor, non-offensive to installer and occupant. Fights indoor air pollution, seals in the outgassing from the substrate.
- Low VOC content, meets or exceeds all federal and state air quality regulations, including California.
- It contains no formaldehyde.
Application: Always have adequate ventilation. Before using, stir Safecoat Safe Seal by gently rolling containers to avoid air bubbles. Then apply as is, using a sponge, squeegee or appropriate spray equipment. It is important to apply in very thin coats. Thick coats will overly darken the color of the underlying surface. For the best results, this product should not be reduced. Use only during low or moderate humidity conditions. Milky appearance dries clear. Apply only to a completely dry substrate. The correct application will often slightly deepen the color of the existing surface.
Coverage: One gallon of Safecoat Safe Seal covers approximately 350 square feet in one coat depending on surface porosity.
Clean-Up: Clean tools and equipment while they are still wet with a solution of SafeChoice Super Clean and warm water.
Drying/Curing Time: Under normal conditions, Safecoat Safe Seal dries to touch in one hour and can be coated again after 2 hours. Normal conditions include a dry surface, access to fresh air flow, moderate humidity, and temperatures above 55F. Thick application, high humidity or conditions other than normal will cause Safecoat Safe Seal to dry and cure more slowly.
Limitations: Safecoat Safe Seal is made without formaldehyde preservatives. Do not contaminate. Store in airtight containers. Do not use when indoor or surface temperature is below 55F. The substrate to which Safecoat Safe Seal is to be applied must be completely dry.
