DECK GUARDIAN™ is an elastomeric waterproofing acrylic, insulating ceramic, high build, wood and concrete urethanized deck-over coating. DECK GUARDIAN™ effectively penetrates, seals, waterproofs and protects new and aged wood while resisting moisture penetration. DECK GUARDIAN™ can help keep the surface temperature of your deck barefoot friendly. It has excellent mildew resistance and possesses ultraviolet resisting pigments that slow down the damaging effects of the sun’s U.V. rays. It protects and beautifies wood decks and concrete patio surfaces. DECK GUARDIAN™ is ideal for waterproofing and restoration of damaged decks and patios instead of total replacement.
DECK GUARDIAN™ can be used on interior or exterior new or old: wood, plywood, composite wood, masonry and concrete surfaces. DECK GUARDIAN™ possesses excellent adhesion and can be used over previously coated or stained, well weathered surfaces using proper preparation. DECK GUARDIAN™ is excellent for use on decks, docks and spas.
For proper adhesion and penetration it is essential that the surface is prepared properly. Smooth new wood should be lightly sanded. Pressure wash all other wood or concrete with a water and chlorine solution using at least 1500 P.S.I. to remove any previous coatings, mildew, dirt, grease, grime and other foreign materials. If wood is weathered and has remained dark or silver gray after pressure washing, apply a solution of 1 part chlorine and 2 parts water and scrub with a stiff brush, then pressure wash again. Pressure treated wood must be weathered, dried and aged a minimum of 6 months before coating. All wood and concrete surfaces must be completely dry before applying DECK GUARDIAN™.
Nationwide premium elastomeric deck coatings can be applied with a brush, roller or airless sprayer. Use at least a 1 gallon per minute piston type airless spayer with a maximum tip size of .027. Remove all line and gun filters before spraying.
High pressure clean entire concrete or wood deck surface with at least 1500 P.S.I. of pressure using a water and chlorine solution.
