BELLATRIX
BELLATRIX - Hardened Concrete Floor EnhancerPremium

DESCRIPTION
BELLATRIX is formulated using dual-protection technology combined with unique hybrid polymers, to offer the ultimate in concrete protection. Proprietary, dual-action technology provides the ultimate in both penetrating and film-forming concrete protection. BELLATRIX offers environmentally friendly, VOC-compliant protection, which provides increased stain suspension and resistance against most contaminants found in kitchens, retail food stores, restaurants, malls, garages, warehouses, distribution centers, etc.

USES
While originally formulated to be used in conjunction with hardened concrete, such as W. R. MEADOWS LIQUI-HARD® and the INDUROSHINE™ polished concrete system, BELLATRIX may also be utilized anywhere a clear, high-gloss, dual-action concrete protection system is desired. BELLATRIX is designed for use on previously sealed surfaces, as well as surfaces that have been previously stained or dyed and sealed. (Check compatibility with existing sealer prior to full application.)

FEATURES/BENEFITS
  • Permeable film allows moisture in cured concrete to evaporate.
  • Seals surface and provides optimum gloss.
  • Offers stain protection against many common stain-causing contaminants.
  • Produces a tough, uniform, breathable barrier for improved durability.
  • Dustproofs concrete
  • Provides excellent blush resistance in damp environments.
  • Applies easily and economically.
  • VOC compliant.
  • Protects the finish when used on polished concrete.
  • For both indoor and outdoor use.
  • Rejuvenates previously sealed or densified concrete.

**Under laboratory conditions, using a two (2) coat application of BELLATRIX at 500 ft.²/gal. over concrete treated with LIQUI-HARD. To determine the optimum results, it is recommended that different dilution rates be tested in the field and evaluated for gloss and stain-resistance properties.

APPLICATION
BELLATRIX is designed for existing concrete and should not be used as a curing compound on freshly placed concrete. A small test patch application is always recommended. The test patch must be done using the same applicator (personnel), equipment, surface preparation, application technique, and at the same temperatures, relative humidity, airflow conditions, etc., that will exist at the time of the full-scale BELLATRIX application.

Surface Preparation … The surface must be thoroughly clean, dry and free of anything that will prevent BELLATRIX from bonding properly with the concrete. This includes, but is not limited to: bond breakers, release agents, coatings, oil, grease, unneutralized acid stain, dirt, efflorescence, dust, etc.

Polished Concrete … BELLATRIX may be applied over concrete that has been previously treated with a densifier/hardener such as LIQUI-HARD and/or polished with a system like INDUROSHINE. Concrete must be a minimum of 28 days old before polishing with INDUROSHINE. Allow a minimum of 12 hours after a LIQUI-HARD treatment before applying BELLATRIX. Best results are obtained if the surface is burnished two hours after application of BELLATRIX. Use a high speed burnisher with a 3000-grit or hogs hair pad. If products or systems other than INDUROSHINE or LIQUIHARD are used, a small test patch application is always recommended.

Existing Concrete … BELLATRIX should be used full strength on existing concrete (no dilution necessary). Concrete must be a minimum of seven days old before applying BELLATRIX. The concrete must be clean, dry and prepared, per Surface Preparation instructions above.

Mixing … Any separation in the container must be re-dispersed with gentle agitation prior to use. CAUTION: TO AVOID FOAMING, DO NOT MIX EXCESSIVELY.

Application Method … An industrial sprayer, such as a Chapin 1949, with a 5916 spray nozzle (or equivalent), delivering 1/10th of a gallon per minute, is recommended. Application equipment must be clean, dry and free of any previously used materials. After initially spraying the product onto the surface, uniformly spread it with a micro-fiber applicator. The micro-fiber pad should be prewetted with BELLATRIX prior to use, and the product must not be allowed to dry before spreading is complete. Optimum performance is achieved with two (2) uniform coats. The second coat should be applied at a 90° (right) angle to the first coat, only after the first coat is thoroughly dry – typically six (6) hours after application, depending on temperatures and conditions. NOTE: Keep surface dry for a minimum of 48 hours after application; full stain blocking ability will not be effective until 72 hours after final application.

Cleanup … While BELLATRIX is still wet, equipment can be cleaned with soap and water. Once dried, the material can be removed with a solvent, such as xylene or toluene.

PRECAUTIONS
KEEP FROM FREEZING. Do not use BELLATRIX as a curing compound on freshly placed concrete. Do not use as a stand alone product. Due to occasional uncontrollable variations in  substrates, application error, etc., BELLATRIX may not block all staining materials in every instance. BELLATRIX is formulated to provide a reasonable amount of time for cleanup and removal of spills. Do not apply when air, material or surface temperatures are expected to fall below 40? F (4? C) within four hours of completed application. DO NOT MIX WITH ANY OTHER PRODUCTS.

Stain resistance and gloss will vary with changes in dilution ratios, coverage rates and with the nature of the substrate. A test area is recommended to verify that the desired appearance and performance is achieved with the intended use conditions.

HEALTH AND SAFETY
Direct contact may result in mild irritation. Inhalation may cause irritation of the respiratory tract. Refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for complete health and safety information.
