Application:   The Aqua-lock WB Water Repellent system should be applied in an even flood coat. Dilutions of Aqua-lock WB Water Repellent can be applied by low-pressure spray or brush. Apply to substrate until fully saturated.  Most substrates require two coats of Aqua-lock WB Water Repellent applied in a wet on wet method. Always test the amount of dilution of application on a test sample of the actual material to be coated to insure that application is correct.  Aqua-lock WB Water Repellent may not adhere well to surfaces that have been previously coated with other water treatments or polymeric coatings such as paints, oils, or silicones. Take safety precautions at all times.  If body contact or contact with anything surfaces not to be treated occurs, flush surface immediately with water. After application of Aqua-lock WB Water Repellent solution, allow the treated surface to dry for at least 24 hours to develop maximum water repellency.  This interval may be shortened somewhat by higher temperatures. While this removes the water quickly, sufficient time must be allowed for the curing reaction between Aqua-lock WB water repellent and the surface being treated.   Coverage Rates:   Aqua-lock WB Water Repellent (after dilution) will typically treat 300 square feet depending on the type and porosity of the surface to be covered.  Aqua-lock WB is supplied as a concentrate from Graffiti Solutions.  Therefore, when ordering this product, calculate the amount of concentrate needed to be ordered rather than the amount of solution that is to be applied.   Safety Precautions:   Aqua-lock WB will release methanol upon formulation with water. Take safety precautions at all times. Always wear protective goggles and gloves.  A respirator is recommended. Local exhaust is recommended if spray or mist is created in an enclosed area. A small amount transferred to the mouth by fingers during use should not cause injury but caution should be exercised to avoid this type of contact.   Storage & Handling Precautions Store in a cool, dry place at a temperature between 40ºF and 80ºF, out of direct sunlight. An inside detached storage area is preferable.  Inside storage should be in a standard flammable liquid storage room or cabinet. Ground containers when transferring liquid from one metal container to another. Do not reuse empty product container for any purpose.  

Warranty:   Graffiti Solutions guarantees that if properly applied, Aqua-lock WB will exhibit water repellency on treated surfaces for five years.  Should lack of water repellency occur through treated areas during the warranty period, Graffiti Solutions will supply Aqua-lock product necessary to restore a water repellent condition to the affected area at no extra cost, subject to certain limitations.
