SB-5000 Stain Blocking Sealer

  • Stain Blocking: Keeps Stains from Becoming Permanent
  • Semi-Penetrating Protection: Superior Longevity & Durability
  • Non-Film Forming with Transparent Finish: Does Not Alter the Appearance of the Surface
  • Breathable, Immediate Application: Does Not Trap Moisture or Efflorescence

SB-5000 Stain Blocking Sealer is a water-based fluorochemical dispersion that does not contain any silicone or wax components. It can be used indoors and outdoors, on old and new, horizontal or vertical surfaces. SB-5000 can be applied immediately after installation on most surfaces, as it is breathable and will not trap efflorescence. On new concrete, SB-5000 should be applied once concrete is fully cured (30 days after installation). SB-5000 provides an invisible and durable barrier against water, oil and organic staining which makes cleaning and maintenance easier. It is ideal for driveways, industrial flooring, building entrances, shopping malls, food courts, outdoor kitchens, garage floors and other surfaces at risk for staining. It is non-hazardous and VOC/EPA compliant. SB-5000 has the consistency of water, is milky white when applied and dries clear with a transparent finish. Cured sealer is freeze resistant to -60°F (-51°C) and is stable up to a temperature of 180°F (82°C).

Suitable Surfaces

Suitable for concrete and clay pavers, flat and stamped concrete, masonry, natural and manufactured stone, segmental retaining wall blocks, concrete walls and exposed aggregate.  May be used on grout, unglazed tile and terra cotta. Safe to use on old or new surfaces in both inside and outside environments. Not recommended for granite, marble, asphalt, glazed or ceramic tile. Test first to verify performance and appearance before applying.

A test area is always recommended to determine product suitability and compatibility with your specific surface before use and also if desired results are achievable. Due to the inherent variability of natural stone and clay products, long term performance may vary. Please consult with us prior to sealing if there are concerns.

Coverage Per Gallon

Application Sq.Feet Sq.Meters
Pavers & Other Hardscape Surfaces 100 – 200 9.3 – 18.6
Concrete 150 – 250 13.9 – 25.2
Retaining Walls & Other Vertical Surfaces 100 – 200 9.3 – 18.6

 

Coverage based on single coat. Two coats applied wet-on-wet are recommended on surfaces that are new, porous or experience high level of traffic or staining. Actual coverage may vary depending on the type, age, condition, porosity of the surface, application method and other local conditions such as temperature & humidity.

SB-5000 Helpful Information

Preparation

TEST SEALER FIRST on a small inconspicuous area to determine suitability and if desired results are achievable with this product.  Over application on some very dense substrates may slightly darken the surface or leave a white haze. On new concrete, SB-5000 should be applied once concrete is fully cured (30 days after installation). Before sealing, surface should be thoroughly cleaned and prepared with Surebond Cleaners.  For spot cleaning, use S.R.B. and/or Oil Extractor before cleaning the surface overall with SureClean.  Use Efflo Off for efflorescence cleaning and SureStrip to remove previously applied sealer or curing compounds, other than SB-5000.  Thoroughly rinse all cleaner residue from the surface. Allow surface to dry for a minimum of 24 hours after cleaning and/or rain before sealer application. If installing joint sand/polymeric sand, install on a dry surface prior to sealing following manufacturer’s instructions. Use a leaf blower to remove dust, debris and fine sand particles from the surface. Cover/protect nearby landscape, vehicles and buildings from overspray during application.

Application

Apply when day and night temperatures are between 40°F – 95°F. Maximum surface temperature should not exceed 120°F. Allow surface to dry for a minimum of 24 hours after cleaning and/or rain before sealer application. Avoid windy conditions to keep sealer spray from drifting. NO pre-blending or mixing required. DO NOT DILUTE. Two coats of SB-5000 are recommended on surfaces that are new, porous or experience high level of traffic or staining. On large projects, it may be necessary to work in smaller more manageable sections.

Application Tools:  low pressure high volume sprayer, slit foam roller

Spray & Back Roll Application (Wet on Wet if applying two coats):  Use coverage rate for your specific surface.  Hold sprayer nozzle perpendicular to the surface, spray and overlap each spray pass.  If desired, apply a second coat while the first coat is still wet (“wet on wet”) and at a right angle to the first application. Do not allow surface to dry between coats. Use liberally but do not allow sealer to puddle. Before sealer dries, back-roll surface with a foam roller to eliminate any pooling and to even out the sealer.  If applying two coats, only back roll once (after completing the second coat – while it is still wet).

Re-applications may need to be carried out every 5 – 10 years depending on weather and volume of traffic.

NOTE: Application of this product is out of the control of SEK-Surebond. Application steps should be followed completely and accurately. Should a problem occur with this product, SEK-Surebond limits liability to product replacement only. Buyer assumes all risk and liability resulting from the use or misuse of this product.

Dry Time

Surface will be dry to the touch within 60 minutes assuming 65-85°F at 50% relative humidity. Low surface or air temperature and or high relative humidity will extend dry times. Protect the surface from dust, rain, condensation and traffic while drying. Area can be open to foot & vehicular traffic in 24 hours depending on site conditions.

Clean Up

For tools and equipment, clean with soap and water before product is allowed to dry.
