Penetrating Water, Salt & Oil Repellent Siloxa-Tek® 8510
The champion of invisible concrete protection: versatile, enduring, impervious.
Easily applied with a low-pressure sprayer, roller or brush, on a variety of concrete, brick and masonry applications. Use indoors and outdoors on new and old concrete. The only thing easier is our ardent recommendation.
Imbue your concrete with the power of resistance while preserving the original appearance (slight enhancement may occur depending on substrate). Use stand-alone or pair with a densifiying primer for increased performance and abrasion resistance.
Protect people, property, vehicles, window glass, roofing materials, plastic products, shrubbery, landscaping and all surfaces not set for treatment from overspray. Application
Typical drying time is 4-6 hours at 70°F and 50% relative humidity. Cooler temperatures or higher relative humidity can extend the drying time. Treated surfaces will be ready for pedestrian and vehicle traffic within 24 hours. Water repellency will continue to develop within 7 days of application.
Clean equipment and tools with xylene or mineral spirits. Unused or old material may be disposed of in a waste disposal site in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing, do not take internally. Use appropriate safety equipment during application and handling. Please refer to the safety data sheet (SDS) for additional precautionary instructions before use. For medical emergencies only, call ChemTrec (1-800-424-9300).
150 - 400 square feet per gallon (apply at a coverage rate to obtain the desired repellent effect). Variations in texture and porosity of substrate will affect the coverage and performance of the product.
What does wet-on-wet mean? Wet-on-wet means that the second coat is applied while the first coat is still wet. Two coats of the Siloxa-Tek 8510 are required wet-on-wet. The second coat is applied immediately after the first coat while the first coat is still wet, since the Siloxa-Tek 8510 is a hydrophobic product it will try to repel the second coat if the second coat is applied after the first coat has dried.
Can I walk on the first coat to apply the second coat? Yes, you can walk on the first coat to apply the second coat. Since the Siloxa-Tek 8510 is a penetrating sealer it will dry invisible and will not show footprints.
Can I paint after sealing? In order to continue repelling oils and staining we do not recommend painting over the Siloxa-Tek 8510.
Does the concrete need to be dry before sealing? Yes, the concrete needs to be as dry as possible before sealing. We recommend the moisture content of the concrete be less than 4%wt. It is recommended to wait at least 24-48 hours after rain and pressure washing before sealing.
What can I use to apply this product? The Siloxa-Tek 8510 can be applied with a 3/8" nap paint roller or a brush.
How do I get oil stains out of my concrete? We recommend a highly concentrated, oil busting dish soap, such as Dawn. Squirt it over the stain and spread it around to cover the entire affected area. Let it sit for about an hour, then mop up the dish soap and oil with a paper towel.
