Salt Guard provides strong protection from damage caused by road salt, ice, rain, snow, and salt spray. It penetrates the pores of the surface and creates a barrier protecting your home from corrosion. Salt products such as Ice Melt, freeze/thaw cycles, or even the ocean air can all cause cracking, spalling, and other types of damage to your project. By filling the pores of the surface, Salt Guard prevents moisture and salt from seeping into the surface and breaking it apart.
For best results against winter damage, apply once a year between August and October or before the winter freeze.

How to Use
Apply during moderate temperatures when humidity and dew point levels are low. If it is expected to rain within 24 hours of application, postpone your project till weather conditions improve. If you need to store the product till a later date do not allow the product to freeze or overheat. For more specific details please contact us by phone or email listed below.
Clean and Prep:
Surface should be clean and “bone dry” before application. Remove any dirt, grease, oil and other loose debris. Brush out stubborn stains using Rainguard Cleaner/Prep. Make sure any holes, cracks, and joints are properly caulked and sealed before application.
Product in white containers is Ready-to-use. DO NOT DILUTE.
Product in black containers is a Concentrate. Add water following instructions below.
Quart Makes 2 Gallons: Empty the contents of the quart into an empty 5 gallon pail then add water to the 2 gallon mark. Helpful hint: If there is no 2 gallon mark visible then first add 2 gallons of water into the empty 5 gallon pail and mark the waters level with a sharpie marker.
Quart Makes 5 Gallons: Empty the contents of the quart into an empty 5 gallon pail then fill with clean water.
For a proper application, use a hand pumped garden sprayer. Apply 1 (one) heavy saturation coat to ensure the product can penetrate deep into the surface, sealing the pores or capillaries.
Once the 1st coat is dry to the touch apply the recommended 2nd saturation coat to ensure best results. Once the 2nd coat is completely dry you can now
put any decor, furniture etc. back on the treated surface. IMPORTANT: Avoid letting any water to come in contact with your newly sealed surface for 24 hours. After full cure time is achieved (approximately 4-5 days) you can expect the full beading effect.
Wait to test water repellency after the full chemical cure period. To conduct a test, simply drip some water in a few places where you have sealed the surface, if the drips make the surface darken, this is an indication that it is still absorbing, meaning you need to apply another coating. (more common with older surfaces)
Allow product to drip heavily before moving onto the next spot. Heavily saturate the surface maintaining at least a 6-inch drip or run down.
Apply the product until it starts to pool up slightly. You will know enough was applied in any given spot when the product starts to pool (puddle) up with a milky-white color. The puddling will dissipate slowly into the pores so there is no need to back roll or brush them out.
Clean-up is a breeze thanks to our water based formula. Simply rinse out equipment with fresh water after application until it runs clear. Any undesired over-spray on windows or glass can be immediately wiped off. If the product has already dried it can be cleaned off quickly with a rag, warm water, and a mild soap.
