DYNA® VIVID is a high end water based sealant specifically designed to protect and enhance the look of Interlocking Pavers and Concrete Pavers. It penetrates deeply into the substrate for a maximum protection against most stains (oil, gasoline, gum, tar, rubber, rust, etc.) while rendering a clear enhanced matte finish.
FEATURES & ADVANTAGES
- Low VOC, low blushing resistance, low odor.
- Clear Matte Finish, enhances the colors of the treated surface.
- Penetrates deeply for better and more durable protection against stains.
- Reduces damages due to freeze-thaw cycles.
- Resists all weather elements (sun, rain, frost, heat, salt, etc.)
- Will not trap moisture.
- Reduces mold and moss growth.
- Does not peel or yellow.
- Meets regulations, including OTC, Maricopa County, California (CARB), EPA, SCAQMD, NOTC, LADCO.
For interior and exterior uses (UV stable), it can be applied on colored porous concrete surfaces such as: Interlocking Concrete Pavers, Exposed Aggregate Surfaces, and Stamped Concrete.
A. SURFACE TESTING
Before starting your project, always perform a surface test by applying VIVD on a small inconspicuous area and let the surface dry for 60 minutes. To determine if one or two coats will be required, apply a 2nd coat on half of the testing area, let dry, and compare to determine preference. If the second coat leaves a glossy finish, your surface is not porous enough and it will leave your surface slippery. If you are satisfied with the results, proceed with application.
B. SURFACE PREPARATION
Remove all stains and surface dirt with the a DYNA® Brand Cleaner. 2. Clean the entire surface area using DYNA® Efflorescence Cleaner, This step is necessary in order to remove efflorescence deposits, ground in dirt and color variations. Let dry completely. 3. Protect vegetation, vehicles, and adjacent surfaces before applying.
C. SEALANT APPLICATION
Conditions: When applying DYNA® VIVID, the ideal temperature should be between 10 °C (50 °F) and 30 °C (85 °F) with no moisture for the next 24 hours (this includes rain, and sprinkler systems). Morning or late evening application is recommended. (Application under scorching sun is not recommended).
Tools: Use a slit foam roller and a paint tray. A low-pressure (<50 psi) airless sprayer can also be used for application, but ensure that you back roll the surface immediately with the slit foam roller to even out the section.
Method: Starting at the highest point of the surface, proceed in small sections of 10 ft X 10 ft (3 m x 3 m) at a time. Using the slit foam roller, roll on only one generous coat of DYNA® VIVID to saturate the pavers and the jointing sand. Then, even out your section as if you were painting a wall and proceed to your next section. Permit the sealed surface to cure for at least 24 hrs before pedestrian traffic and 48 hrs before vehicular traffic.
Approximately 150 square feet per 3.78 L (1 gallon), per coat.
Wash hands and tools with warm soapy water immediately after completion of project.
