    Default Really left-field but not terribly important Concrete-Sealer question...

    Good Evening Chaps,

    Just wondering...

    1) Does anyone currently have (or have they used in the past), the pump-up, pressure-sprayer version of Bondall's "Paving & Concrete Sealer"? (It's on the left - but still in it's box - in the photo below.)

    2) If yes, is the sealer itself milky-white in appearance? (ie. like watered-down exterior-grade PVA...)

    3) If yes again, can you please have a read of the instructions on the side, and see if there are any special precautions to stop the stuff from setting solid in the Wand's trigger-valve and nozzle? (if you know what I mean...)

    Thanks a'Muchly,
    Batpig.

    How about you read this Bondall Paving & Concrete Sealer does that help . . .

    Thanks Bloss,

    I did have a read of that page, as well as the PDF that it links to down near the bottom, but it didn't really tell me what I was trying to find out (which was how to stop the stuff from setting on me up in the Trigger-Valve and Wand when I mixed my own brew of it up in my Pressure-Sprayer...). But as fate would have it, I popped into the BigB this morning to buy some disposable Dust-Masks, whereupon I mosied down to that last aisle beside the Timber-Yard where they keep all of that Bondall-type stuff, and I had a read of the instructions on the side of the product's box. Well, that didn't tell me too much either, other than the fact that the stuff is indeed "milky white" in appearance (the "Curse of the overpriced, watered-down PVA" strikes yet again...), and that clean-up instructions went something along the lines of "wash all equipment with warm soapy water..." What else can you do, I suppose. I guess I could run a bit of metho through it (ie. the Pressure Sprayer), because metho really goes after dried acrylic paint, and acrylic paint has a fair bit of PVA in it, hey. That's probably my best-bet I suppose...

    Thanks again Big-Fella!
    Best Wishes,
    Batpig.

    Ah - should've read your 1st post better! If the damn stuff has blocked not sure what you can do as they don't mention a solvent once it's dried/ hardened.

    I have never used this stuff but the website says it is milky white when applied and then dries clear, a bit like curing compound. As with curing compound, your description of blockages is common, however flushing the sprayer with water will help this. One way to overcome this problem is to not buy the pressure-sprayer version and just get a bottle of the stuff along with a cheap sprayer from your local hardware store and throw it out when you are done. When you need to spray it again, get a new one.
