MANUFACTURER RECOMMENDATIONS

Manufacturer strongly encourages mock ups for on-site testing, color absorption and retention, reflectivity and gloss evaluation based on specified grit requirements, and other testing evaluations which are of primary concern to the Architect, Developer, Contractor, and/or Property Owner.

If specific concerns require the evaluation of the ECOGUARD™ MaxGloss Protective Barrier for resistance to certain chemicals, whereby the floor being completed is subject to such abuse and contamination, we strongly advise that on site testing and resistance analysis be performed. Time testing for resistance to staining and/or loss of gloss or surface etching is recommended at 24 & 48 hours intervals, performed on a mock up and evaluated on site. This provides added assurance that the correct protective sealer is applied.

Manufacturer provides other proprietary certified sealers, which may be preferred in some instances or may be applied in addition to the recommended ECOGUARD™ MaxGloss Barrier.

The ECOGUARD™ MaxGloss Protective Barrier offers a long term, sustainable and proven floor finish, which excels in protecting the mechanical shine and concrete surface. It is easily maintained and brought back to a high gloss with daily cleansing, periodic conditioning, and re-application as outlined in the ECOGUARD™ Repair & Maintenance 10 Year Warranty Program. ECOGUARD™ provides an inexpensive and easy to maintain long term solution.
