SB-8700 Wet Look Joint Stabilizing Sealer is an advanced premium acrylic sealer that is ‘rain safe’ 90 minutes after application and will not yellow under exposure to sunlight. It is a 3 in 1 product, it enhances surface tone with semi-gloss finish, protects the substrate surface and stabilizes joint sand. SB-8700 is specially formulated with an anti-fungal designed to inhibit the growth of mold, moss and algae on the sealer film when applied to horizontal or vertical surfaces. SB-8700 will penetrate the substrate and provide a protective layer on the surface that is resistant to mild acid, alkali, and salt attacks. SB-8700 will increase the stain resistance of the surface and allow easier cleaning, maintenance, and extended wear. SB-8700 can be applied immediately after paver installation, as it is breathable and will not trap naturally occurring efflorescence and moisture. SB-8700 is a solvent based product with a consistency of water and is clear in appearance when applied. SB-8700 is designed as a one-coat application but a second coat may be applied if desired. It will deeply enhance the surface tone with a semi-gloss finish. Cured sealer is freeze resistant to -60°F (-51°C) and is stable up to a temperature of 180°F (82°C).
Joint Stabilizing Sealers can be used just as a sealer for pavers, concrete and other masonry surfaces without joint sand stabilization.
Ideal for concrete and clay pavers, flat and stamped concrete, or masonry surfaces such as stucco, retaining walls, concrete walls and exposed aggregate. Also works on limestone, sandstone and natural paving stones.
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.
|Sealing with joint stabilization||80 – 120||7.4 – 11.1|
|Sealing only without joint stabilization||200 – 400||18.6 – 37.2|
Per gallon. Single application. Actual coverage may vary depending on the type, age, condition, joint size and porosity of the surface, application method and site conditions such as temperature. For a more uniform coverage or if desired, a second coat may be applied after first coat has dried to the touch.

SB-8700 Helpful Information
TEST FIRST on a small inconspicuous area to determine the suitability and if desired results are achievable with this product on your specific surface. The surface should be thoroughly clean and free from oil, dust, loose material, and previously applied sealer other than SB-8700 prior to sealer application. If needed, prepare surface with Surebond Cleaners before sealing. Thoroughly rinse all cleaner residue prior to sealing. Allow surface to dry for a minimum of 24 hours after cleaning and/or rain before sealer application. For optimal joint stabilization, the paver joints should be filled with dry, correctly graded jointing sand that meets the ASTM C144 standard. The top level of the sand should not exceed the bottom of the chamfer or 1/8” below the surface on non-beveled or tumbled paver surfaces. Compaction is recommended after sweeping sand into joints to minimize voids. Use a vibratory compactor for concrete pavers and a rubber hammer and piece of wood (2”x4”) for natural stone to seat the joint sand into the setting bed. A leaf blower is recommended to remove dust, debris and fine sand particles from the surface before sealing. Cover/protect nearby landscape, vehicles and buildings from overspray during application.
Apply when day and night temperatures are between 40°F – 95°F. Avoid windy conditions to keep sealer spray from drifting. NO pre-blending or mixing required. Do NOT dilute. Apply by airless sprayer, hand held (pump-up) sprayer, or slit foam (solvent resistant) roller. Sprayer/equipment should be of solvent resistant design with neoprene or Viton type fittings. Hold sprayer nozzle perpendicular to the surface and overlap each coat. If spray and back-roll application is used, use a slit foam, solvent resistant roller IMMEDIATELY AFTER SPRAYING as the product dries quickly. Slit foam will ensure even application. If applying by roller only, it is advised to constantly maintain a wet edge, and to keep the roller wet with sealer resin to avoid potential lap marks or surface mottling upon drying. Do not roll back and forth excessively, as this may cause excessive bubbling. Re-rolling immediately after film starts to become tacky can cause the roller to become stringy. For joint stabilization, the surface should be flood coated using coverage guidelines. Flood joints to ensure proper sand penetration for stabilization and use a soft foam squeegee to direct excess material into the joints. It is recommended to then back roll to even out the sealer on the surface to prevent pooling. SB-8700 is designed for a one-coat application but if desired a second coat can be applied only after the first coat has dried to the touch. NOTE: Excessive applications can cause surface to become slippery. 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.
Surface will be dry to the touch in 20-30 minutes assuming 65-85°F. Low surface or air temperature will extend dry times. Protect the surface from dust, rain, condensation, and traffic while drying. If dry, area can be open to foot & vehicular traffic in 24 hours depending on site conditions.
