MaxGuard is an opaque white protective coating. It contains a durable, leach resistant EPA registered antimicrobial to guard against and protect the coating surface from mold, mildew, odor-causing microorganisms, black fungal staining and bacterial and fungal slime films on the coating surface*. Since these materials are built into the molecular structure of the coating, they won’t wash off or wear away.
MaxGuard is designed to be used on most surfaces in residential, commercial and institutional applications. Its proprietary resin technology produces a durable, abrasion and stain resistant, washable surface. In addition, MaxGuard forms a chemical and abrasion resistant surface while meeting ASTM D5590-00, D3273, D3274 and G-21 requirements for fungal resistance*. It meets current LEED IEQ Credit 4.2 VOC requirements (LD-50) and requires no respiratory protective equipment during application. MaxGuard is a unique technology that is water-based, formaldehyde free, safe & easy to use. For a general description of the typical chemical and physical properties refer to the Material Safety and Data Sheet.

Application And Safety Protocol:
Do not dilute prior to use. Stir well. Apply only to clean, dry surfaces. Ensure that all surfaces are free of all wax, grease, oil, dirt, rust, mold and other surface contaminants. Do not apply to surfaces with greater than 20% moisture content or surfaces having a temperature of less than 40°F. Weathered wood substrates need to be sanded down to a sound surface. On painted surfaces, remove all flaking, loose or chalking material. Sand all glossy painted surfaces using 220-grit sandpaper to roughen the entire area. If thinning is necessary, MaxGuard can be diluted with up to one quart of water.
Apply evenly to wooden surfaces at the rate of 160 ft/gal (unconditioned spaces) and up to 320 ft/gal (conditioned spaces within the building envelope) until a uniform film remains on the surface. Spraying or brushing will give the smoothest surfaces. For optimum performance maintain uniform recommended coverage. To assure the aesthetic appearance, apply
product to a small test area prior to complete application. Not recommended for use on floors in high traffic areas.
MaxGuard can be applied with virtually any type of airless spray equipment on the market today. Reversible cleaning 0.017” to 0.019” spray tips are recommended for optimum application.
