PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: TRU Matte is easy to use, PREMIUM GRADE, concrete sealer additive designed to reduce gloss of both water and solvent-based acrylic sealers. It is simply added and thoroughly mixed with the sealer just before application. It will reduce gloss without changing the other sealer properties including color change, dry time, or coverage rate. The proprietary material used for the product is resistant to settling out, unlike competitive products in the marketplace.
Tru Matte is made to be used in Walttools acrylic sealers such as Stampsheen, Stampsheen 350, Stampsheen H2O, Cure Seal, and Cure Seal 350 for reducing or eliminating gloss..
For semi-gloss/satin look: ONE 16 oz container for 5 gallons of sealer
For full matte look: TWO 16 oz containers for 5 gallons of sealer
Lower solids sealers such as Cure Seal should not need additional material.
If doing less than a full container, the material should be weighed out accordingly for consistency with batches. One gallon should take just under one kitchen cup
If doing multiple coats, a matting agent should be applied to the final coat
It is always recommended to test sealer and matting agent load on a test area of any job before proceeding on the complete job.
Add matting agent to the desired amount of sealer and mix for two minutes with a medium speed using a Jiffy style mixing head. DO NOT HAND STIR MATERIAL AS IT WILL LIKELY NOT BLEND FULLY. Though Tru Matte stays suspended for a long period of time it is always recommended to re-agitate anytime you pour more material from the original container.
