MicroGuard is a water based resin sealer that provides much needed stain and abrasion resistance to MicroConcrete and Micro Cement overlays. MicroGuard is low odour and easy to apply with a microfibre applicator, highly suitable for both large and small installations.
MicroGuard should be applied over at least two coats of our MicroSeal product to ensure the polyurethane solvents do not dissolve the polymers used in your micro cement overlay.
MicroGuard coats the pores and fine particles to further enhance the surface sealing over that provided by MicroSeal. Subsequent coats enhance the levels of protection, colours are only subtly enhanced so there is not a major change in the overlays colours.
MicroGuard is suitable for all levels of traffic and for most applications (not for wet rooms or areas to be immersed in water) where a stain resistant thin coating is required to protect the MicroConcrete or Micro Cement installation from water and oil based staining. Our sealer also allows for moisture vapour transmission through the overlay which helps prevent problems with delamination.
