Limestone Emulsion is a water-based silicone water repellent and surface binder for Australian Limestone. It is a non-caustic and user-friendly product designed to penetrate deeply into the capillaries of limestone surfaces. This renders the substrate water repellent and also strengthens the surface.
Some key features of Limestone Emulsion are:
Can be applied using brush, roller or spray. However, the product is preferably applied by saturation flooding using a hand pressure spray or airless spray equipment to avoid direct contact of the brush or the roller with the surface.
For Vertical surfaces the product should be applied as a liquid thin film stream which runs down the surface approximately 30-40cm. A second application should follow immediately after the first coat is absorbed by the surface. This is termed a "wet-on-wet application. The object is to saturate the surface to allow a better penetration.
For Horizontal surfaces the product should be applied by flooding the surface for about 10 minutes to ensure the penetration of product into the surface. If the sealer is quickly absorbed by the substrate after the first application, a second coat may be required immediately. Any remaining liquid on the surface which has not been absorbed after 10 minutes should be removed to avoid any excessive accumulation of the sealer, which may cause an uneven finish.
Please refer to data sheet for full details regarding the use of this product and application.
The consumption of Limestone Emulsion varies significantly depending on the permeability of the substrate. It may be of the order of 1m2 to 5m2 per litre.
