TERRA GLAZEACRYLIC POLYMER TERRAZZO SEALPRODUCT DESCRIPTION:TERRA GLAZE is an acrylic polymer seal developed exclusively for use on terrazzo. Terrazzo is constructed of marble chips set in a mixture of portland cement. While the natural terrazzo surface is highly polished, due to the porosity of the cement ingredient, a sealer is required to protect the floor from penetration of spills, wear, tear, and damage from heavy traffic. TERRA GLAZE was developed to fill these specific maintenance requirements and offers a number of unique features and benefits:HIGH GLOSS/HIGH SOLIDS:A 25% solids metal interlock formulation, TERRA GLAZE conditions, seals, and protects the natural beauty of terrazzo. TERRA GLAZE produces a gloss normally only achieved with two or three coats of ordinary non-resilient seals.DURABLE:The backbone of the TERRA GLAZE formulation is a controlled blend of monomers which enhance both the cohesive strength of the finish and its ability to adhere to the substrate. Once applied, TERRA GLAZE becomes a hard, tough seal that combats terrazzo's inherent susceptibility to damage and deterioration due to abrasion, scratching, scuffing, and wear.LOW BUDGET MAINTENANCE: Since the initial installation cost of terrazzo is high when compared with most floorings, there is great interest in low budget maintenance programs which will maintain the beauty of terrazzo while extending its life span. TERRA GLAZE saves the extensive time and labor usually associated with the maintenance of a terrazzo surface. The formula's quick-drying features reduce costly downtime and inconvenience, resulting in labor savings.NON-YELLOWING: Terra Glaze is a milk-white emulsion for­mulation containing no ingredients that will yellow, distort, diminish, or discolor terrazzo surfaces.
High Speed Floor Care Program:Two coats of TERRA GLAZETwo-to-three coats of Spartan finish designed for burnishing.Finish will be determined by your equipment used and frequency of burnishing your floors.DIRECTIONS FOR USE:Some individuals may be sensitive to ingredients in this product. Before using, read product label and MSD sheet. Wet floors may be slippery. Prevent pedestrian traffic with signs or barricades. Completely strip the terrazzo floor of all seal, wax, and finish.Before applying TERRA GLAZE make certain the floor is clean and dry. Loose dirt, stripper residue, or dampness will keep TERRA GLAZE from penetrating and bonding to the floor.When sealing larger areas, use of common wax applicators such as rayon mops, blended mops, or flat mopping systems can be used for applying TERRA GLAZE.Pour TERRA GLAZE into a lined mop bucket with wringer.Saturate the clean mop with TERRA GLAZE and wring out the lower half or two-thirds until it no longer drips.Apply TERRA GLAZE by keeping the moist mop head flat on the floor. The tail of the mop will spread the TERRA GLAZE uniformly.Resaturate the mop frequently so that the TERRA GLAZE will not spread to thinly or set up too quickly.If the mop becomes dry it will cause streaking.In ideal weather conditions, TERRA GLAZE should dry within 20 to 30 minutes. After it is dry to the touch, a second coat of TERRA GLAZE may be applied using a clean finish applicator of your choice. Subsequent coats of TERRA GLAZE or other Spartan approved floor finishes may be applied for additional coats of protection on your floor.Never use the TERRA GLAZE mop head for applying one of Spartan's floor finishes.SPECIFICATION DATA:Total Solids – 32.5%Non-Volatile solids – 25.0%Stability:a.
