RexShield 3 Part Satin
A 2-part “chameleon” sealer that matches the sheen of the underlying substrate. It penetrates into and creates a topical layer over concrete, epoxy, stone, tile, grout and pavers.
This vinyl sealer eliminates the need for waxing and buffing. It restores the former sheen and look of vinyl floors while improving slip resistance, hygiene and maintenance.
The 3-Part Satin is a silane based, ceramic forming sealer, similar in chemical structure to glass that makes the treated substrate harder, impossible to stain and more scratch resistant.
The 3-Part Satin makes a covalent or molecular bond with the substrate it is applied to. It becomes a part of the substrate and is not to be compared to a sacrificial or mechanical coating/sealer that “sits” on top of the substrate.
The 3-Part Satin stands up incredibly well against several chemicals. The following chemicals were tested after sitting on a sealed surface for 7 days with absolutely no penetration through the 3-Part Satin – Acetone, Xylene, MEK, Tert-Butyl Acetate, Mineral Spirits, 50% Sodium Hydroxide, Ammonia, 1M Acetic Acid, 0.1M Sulfuric Acid, 1M Hydrochloric Acid, Motor Oil and Hydraulic Fluid.
The pot life for the 3-Part Satin is 6 HOURS once you remove the foil liner from the capped bottles and you begin to mix Part B into Part A.
The shelf life of the 3-Part Satin is one year as long as it is kept in a room that is no more than 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
The 3-Part Satin should never be stored in an area where the temperature is more than 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Yes, we recommend adding no more than 10% to a fully mixed and catalyzed bottle of the 3-Part Satin. For example, you can add a 12-oz bottle of RexShield Flow to a one-gallon kit of the 3-Part Satin. RexShield Flow will give you more working time and will help smooth out the product. However, it will also slow down the overall dry time.
No, this is not recommended as each bottle of liquid material is placed under Argon prior to heat sealing the cap onto the bottle. Therefore, the second you expose the liquid to air, the 6-HOUR pot life will begin, as the moisture in the air starts a low-grade reaction that if prolonged can damage the efficacy of the product. We currently offer the 3-Part Satin in Gallons, Quarts, Pints & 8-oz samples.
No, this absolutely is not recommended. The chemistry of our products is a precise and an exact science. If the product is placed in the refrigerator, there is a high probability that the product will fail, and RexPro does not warranty any product that is exposed to this type of climate.
The full cure time is 7 days. However, the substrate can be used in general sense and furniture can be re-placed (not dragged) after approximately 8-12 hours. We recommend that the customer refrains from using any harsh chemicals on the surface until after the full 7-day cure time (for example, no Isopropyl Alcohol, bleach, acid, etc.).
In general, we estimate that the 3-Part Satin will last approximately 3 – 5 years in a commercial setting and approximately 5 – 7 years in a residential setting.
As soon as you see any 3-Part Satin product pooling or rejecting, quickly spray 99% IPA on the product and wipe it up. You then need to readdress (clean) the substrate as something, such as a wax, is still on the surface and is preventing the 3-Part Satin product to properly adhere to the surface.
If the 3-Part Satin has fully cured (which is 7-days), and the customer wants it completely removed, the only way to remove it is with our specially designed stripper for silane-based products.
After the 3-Part Satin is fully cured, you would want to use a black pad on a swing machine to break the tension of the sealed surface. You would then clean the surface, let it completely dry, wipe it down with 99% IPA, then reapply the 3-Part Satin.
We recommend one to two ounces per gallon of 3-Part Satin.
