How to Measure Size in m²

It is simple to calculate the square metre size of an area.

When measuring rectangular shaped areas. Just multiply the length by the width in metres and you have the answer.

When measuring more complex shapes it is best to divide them into separate rectangles and then add them together to get a total area.

How Deepshield Works

Deepshield manufactures innovative impregnating penetrating sealers for porous tiles, including natural stone, paving, concrete and grout. Our aim is to continue developing new technologies which provide effective protection from common problems, including: staining, efflorescence, salt damage, mould and mildew.

Chemical Reaction:

Deepshield impregnating penetrating waterbased sealer works by chemically reacting with the concrete or rock using nano-technology developed to create a protective barrier to water and oils. The active component is a molecule consisting of silicon, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms. The molecule has two ends, one hydrophilic the other hydrophobic.

When applied, the hydrophilic end reacts with moisture retained in the substrate and breaks away to form another compound that reacts within the masonry lattice. This reaction forms a bond that is stronger than any mechanical or hydrogen bonding of conventional film forming sealers, the exposed hydrophobic end of the molecule changes the surface energy with the result that water and oils are now repelled, but the micro pores are still open enough to allow moisture vapour to escape making the treated surface breathable.

Breatheability

Deepshield's special liquid-repelling sealing molecules are hundreds of times smaller than the molecules in most other impregnating penetrating sealers. The result: Surfaces treated with Deepshield's impregnators retain not only their original look and slip resistance, but also remain fully breatheable. Why is this important? The more open the pores are, the more easily moisture can escape from the tile by evaporation. For example, an outdoor paver can have water wicking up from underneath, which can cause serious mold and mildew growth and may also physically damage the material over time. The more breathable the sealer is, the more quickly the moisture can evaporate out and the less chance there is of damage.

Application:

  • Surface to be treated should be clean and absorbent.
  • Apply This sealer liberally, by low pressure sprayer, lambswool applicator, bristle broom or paint brush.
  • Flood coat the surface to achieve a "wet" look. It is best to agitate the product into slightly denser surfaces.
  • Leave for 20 minutes then reapply a second coat whilst still wet.
  • Do not allow the product to pool on the surface. Wipe or buff excess product off the surface with a clean dry cloth or floor pad.
  • Allow surface to dry, water repellency will be evident immediately the surface appears dry, full curing will take 24 hours.
