Natural Stone and Salt Water Resistant Sealer
DECK-O-SHIELD PLUS is a premium-grade, ready-to-use, water-based sealer formulated for use on natural stone. DECK-O-SHIELD PLUS is formulated specifically to seal porous surfaces and is ideal to use on pool copings and decks protecting them from salt penetration. It can be used on all porous surfaces such as natural stone, tile, concrete, pavers, and grout. DECK-O-SHIELD PLUS provides a solution to spalling and pitting of porous stone and concrete surfaces caused by salt penetration as well as spalling caused by freeze-thaw cycles.
DECK-O-SHIELD PLUS weatherproofs and protects virtually all porous surfaces, including decks, porches, patios, and walkways around pools. This includes the following surfaces: natural stone, mortar joint, concrete, brick, concrete block, stucco.
Another advantage DECK-O-SHIELD PLUS provides is that the product will not alter the color or tint of the surface after application. There is no need for worry when applying DECK-O-SHIELD PLUS, because the product will have no adverse effects on surface appearance after application.

Surface Preparation … Protect people, vehicles, property, plants, and all non-masonry surfaces from product, splash, residue, and wind drift. Thoroughly clean the surface. Though DECK-O-SHIELD PLUS may be applied to slightly damp surfaces, best performance is achieved on a clean, thoroughly dried and absorbent surface. Excessive moisture inhibits penetration, reducing the service life and performance of the treatment. Always test for compatibility. Surfaces must be structurally sound, clean, and free from dirt, efflorescence, and stains.
Surface and Air Temperatures … Optimum surface and air temperature is 40° – 95° F (4° – 35° C) during application and eight hours after. If freezing conditions exist before application, let surface to receive treatment thaw. The DECK-O-SHIELD PLUS water carrier may freeze at low temperatures or evaporate at high temperatures. Both conditions impair penetration and results.
Equipment … Apply with paint roller or brush.
Test Application … Always perform a test application on each type of surface prior to full-scale application to determine suitability and final appearance. Test using the recommended application instructions. Let area dry thoroughly before inspection.
Application Method … Amply saturate the surface with DECK-O-SHIELD PLUS using a paint roller or brush. Roll or brush out puddles. Do not let the product puddle on the surface or dry on the surface. After 10 – 15 minutes, wipe the entire surface with a clean, dry cloth, removing all excess sealer from the surface.
Note: Hot, windy conditions will evaporate the water carrier, reducing penetration and performance. On hot, windy days, apply early in the day and in shade, if possible.
Treated surfaces dry to touch in 1 – 2 hours. Protect surfaces from rainfall for six hours following treatment. Many surfaces need several days to develop optimum water repellency.
For dense surfaces, use “standard” DECK-O-SHIELD.
Cleanup … Immediately clean tools, equipment and overspray with soap and warm water.
DO NOT DILUTE OR ALTER. MIX THOROUGHLY PRIOR TO USE. DO NOT FREEZE. DECK-O-SHIELD PLUS is a water repellent, not a waterproofing or vapor barrier. It will not hide existing surface stains. DECK-O-SHIELD PLUS should not be applied to surfaces that are to receive caulks or sealants. Application over fully cured elastomeric sealants typically will not affect the sealant. Do not apply to surfaces with temperatures of <40° F or >95° F. Prevent from being spilled or over sprayed onto nearby water sources. Temporary darkening of some substrates may occur. Apply a small test patch application prior to full-scale application. Refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for complete health and safety information.
