AFM Safecoat Carpet Seal
AFM Safecoat's Carpet Seal (gallon size) is a unique sealer designed to prevent the outgassing of harmful chemicals used in carpet backing. These chemicals include such known carcinogens as formaldehyde, toluene, benzene, xylene and styrene.
Carpet Seal is odor-free and, when properly applied, effectively blocks outgassing for up to five cleanings or one year.
Carpet Seal is designed to be used in conjunction with Carpet Shampoo (to clean) and Lock Out (to seal carpet fibers and repel dirt and stains). This three-part system helps to clean out and seal in the chemicals found throughout a typical carpet.
Use on: generally suitable for synthetic carpets and rugs. Because of variations in materials and production processes used by different manufacturers, you should always spot test to insure compatibility with your carpet. Wool fibers generally do not react well to water based products, so Carpet Seal is not recommended for wool.
Coverage: One gallon covers approximately 300 square feet for medium to tight weave carpet.
Drying/curing time: in moderate temperatures and humidity 4-6 hours to the touch; total cure time 24 hours. Cool temperatures and/or high humidity may increase drying time.
Application: Carpet should be vacuumed and cleaned prior to application of Carpet Seal with Carpet Shampoo. Immediately after shampooing apply Carpet Seal liberally but evenly (while carpet is still damp) using a hand-held pump sprayer (similar to a garden-type sprayer) to mist the sealer over the surface of the carpet. Do not over-saturate. Carpet Seal cannot be used on a dry carpet. Work Carpet Seal into the fibers with a rotary brush, polishing machine or clean garage broom, just enough to assure complete and uniform contact with the top of the carpet backing. UPON COMPLETION, CLOTH DRY FIBER TOPS TO PREVENT FORMATION OF WHITE FILM AS PRODUCT DRIES.
