SB2449 Masonry Color Enhancer SB

SB 2449 Masonry Color Enhancer is a solvent borne enhancer for porous natural and artificial stone and concrete products. It is based on a proprietary siloxane-silicone technology that wets out and penetrates the masonry surface to bring out and enhance the natural colors. It dries to a soft sheen and does not form the extremely glossy film associated with some high gloss sealers. This product helps protect the stone from water and staining. SB 2449 has very good vapor permeability or breathability so it is suitable for both vertical and horizontal masonry and stone surfaces. It can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications. This product is not recommended for non porous stone such as granite and marble.


Prior to application of SB 2449 the surface should be cleaned with quality cleaner like SB 2790 Con-D-Soil or other appro- priate cleaner followed by thorough rinsing or pressure washing to remove any dirt, stains or loose sealers. Surface should be allowed to dry completely before application of SB

Dilution and Coverage

Dilution: Product normally used undiluted — test application recommended.

Coverage: Can range from 150 to 300 square feet per gallon on very porous surfaces up to 500 to 600 square feet per gallon on surfaces that are less porous — dependent upon substrate and other conditions.


SB 2449 is normally applied by low pressure, garden-type pump sprayer followed by back rolling for large jobs. Spray equip- ment must be equipped with solvent resistant hoses and gaskets. It can also be applied by roller, brush or squeegee depending on texture and shape of the substrate. Rough textured placements will require a heavier application rate. Coverage can be 150 to 300 square feet per gallon on very porous surfaces and as much as 500-600 square feet if surface is not very porous. If a second coat is desired, wait at least 1 to 2 hours before recoating. It is necessary to allow the solvent to escape for proper film formation. Do not allow product to pond or puddle on the surface and dry to avoid a potential slipping hazard. Brush out or wipe up excess material that does not penetrate substrate.

Cleanup of tools or equipment can be done with mineral spirits. Dried or partially dried films may require a polar solvent such as alcohol, acetone or a glycol ether to remove. Drying time is dependent on the ambient temperature and relative humidity. Outdoors in warm, dry weather allow at least 3 to 4 hours for light foot traffic and 24 hours for vehicular traffic.
