CCS Stainblock Enricher WB is a single pack, water-based penetrating sealer that provides excellent stain resistance and repels both water and oil.

CCS Stainblock Enricher WB is designed as a protective sealer to penetrate into the capillaries of porous materials to permanently bond with the substrate render the surface, water and oil repellent. It will also enhance the colour of the substrate. CCS Stainblock Enricher WB is suitable for treating porous coloured masonry substrates such as natural stones, concrete blocks and pavers, concrete driveways, clay bricks, tiles, and grouts and mortars.

CCS Stainblock Enricher WB provides excellent stain resistance against an extensive range of surface contaminants such as oil, coffee, wine, tannin, grease, food and other food colouring stains.

CCS Stainblock Enricher WB is not a film forming sealer or a coating, but penetrates into the substrate and this can significantly darken the surface with minimal change to the surface texture and vapour permeability.

Coverage Rates

Coverage is typically 6-10 m2/litre/coat, depending on the permeability of the substrate.

A minimum of 2 coats wet on wet should be applied. For very porous substrates, more coats may be required. However, one coat may be sufficient for very dense substrates such as bluestone, granite and slate.

Determine the consumption and number of coats required by a trial prior to application.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces to be treated should be clean and structurally sound. All previous coatings, adhesives, efflorescence or laitance should be removed by mechanical grinding or abrasive blast cleaning, high pressure water blasting, mechanical scrubbing or other suitable means.

To prepare a concrete surface use either CCS Citric Cleaner or CCS HD Degreaser to remove surface contaminants. By using CCS Citric Cleaner at a lower dilution rate an etching process is provided to the surface. To ensure the acid is neutralised apply CCS HD Degreaser prior to the application of CCS Stainblock Enricher WB.

All surfaces should be dry and clean before application.

New concrete floors should be at least 28 days old before applying CCS Stainblock Enricher WB.

Mix or shake the product well before use.

Note: A test MUST be conducted prior to application of CCS Stainblock Enricher WB to determine and confirm product suitability for the particular purpose.

Application Guidelines

Apply the first coat of CCS Stainblock Enricher WB at the rate of 8m2/litre in a uniform manner by low pressure sprayer to ensure adequate coverage and a smooth even finish.

Generally no dilution is recommended, however, for some dense surfaces, a better result may be obtained by diluting the product at 1 part sealer with 1 part deionised water before applying the first coat.

CCS Stainblock Enricher WB is best applied wet-on-wet using a low pressure sprayer. The initial treated surface should be flooded with plenty of sealer to ensure enough sealer is applied. After the 1st coat is absorbed by the surface, the 2nd coat is applied immediately while the surface is still wet. Any remaining sealer visible on the surface which has not been absorbed after 10 minutes should be removed.

Use a cloth or mop to wipe off the excessive sealer to reveal a homogeneous surface finish. This is to avoid possible surface sheen or a blotchy finish after product is dry. More wet-on-wet applications may be required for very porous substrates.

For dense, smooth, or polished substrates, it may be necessary to polish the surface after product application with a light coloured dry cloth or polish pad to remove excessive sealer and reveal the original finish. This may be done after the surface is touch dry or within a couple of hours after application. Moistening the cloth or polish pad with CCS Stainblock Enricher WB may help in the polishing process. Initial oil and water repellent effect may develop after the surface is touch dry.

Allow the surface to cure for at least 24 hours.

Full curing may take up to 7 days or more. Avoid heavy traffic for a minimum 24 hours.

Clean Up

Wash application equipment used to apply CCS Stainblock Enricher WB in water and detergent after use.

Storage

CCS Stainblock Enricher is a water-based non-dangerous material. Refer to the product material safety data sheet for safe handling and storage.

CCS Stainblock Enricher WB sealer has a shelf life of 6 months in the sealed container when stored at 25ºC. It
should be used as soon as possible after opening. This
product should not be contaminated with any building materials or any other chemicals.

Store in a cool dry place away from water, fire or ignition sources. Use with sufficient ventilation away from any fire or ignition sources.

Precautions

CCS Stainblock Enricher WB penetrates into the substrate capillaries and renders the surface oil & water repellent without blocking the capillaries.

CCS Stainblock Enricher WB sealer is designed to protect the surface against instant staining. However, prolonged contact of contaminants on the treated surface can still penetrate and cause staining. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that any contaminants should be removed immediately from the surface to avoid the possibility of permanent staining. CCS Stainblock Enricher WB sealer will not prevent surface etching or wearing of the substrate surface. It will promote easy cleaning and overall maintenance of a treated surface.

General cleaning of the treated surface with household detergent, water and gentle brushing is recommended to maintain treatment serviceability.

Avoid the use of acid or alkaline cleaning materials and aggressive brushing on substrates treated with CCS Stainblock Enricher WB.
