Unitex® Uni-Substrate Sealer is a pigmented substrate coating and is based on acrylic co-polymers in a water emulsion specifically formulated for compatibility in the highly alkaline cement environment as a colour matching sealer.

Product Performance and Application
Unitex® Uni-Substrate Sealer is for exterior and interior use and offers resistance to early hydrolysis and rain penetration into the substrate, as well as protecting and adding colour to the base substrate. To reduce blushing through of the substrate, Unitex Uni-Substrate Sealer is the ideal solution.
Unitex® Uni-Substrate Sealer is compatible with all Unitex® acrylic renders and surface applied coatings.
When applying Unitex® Uni-Substrate Sealer please consider the following:
- Apply between 100C and 350C ambient temperature
- Allow 2 hour drying time before top coating in Summer, and 4 hours in Winter
- Generally 1 coat is required (or more if substrate is not fully sealed)
- Roller and spray applied
- Use water if thinning product is required, and in cleaning tools
- Slows the drying of the subsequent coat and to be a consideration when rain and cooler conditions is a possibility
Apply only after all renders, patching repairs and expansion joint mastic are dry and cured
