Q: What is it?

 

A: Miracle Cover is a water-based emulsion (mixture) type silicone rubber sealant, made and Manufactured in the United States, and offers complete protection for porous and non-porus materials.

Silicone rubber is derived from inorganic silica (sand). Silicones were developed for commercial use during World War II for military applications requiring extreme temperature resistance. Over the years, numerous advances have been made, improving tensile strength, elongation, tear resistance, etc. In addition to its broad temperature resistant properties, silicone rubber now possesses physical values far superior to a number of other synthetic polymers. Silicone rubber is made up of a backbone of silicone and oxygen atoms. This unique linkage is the same as that found in other high temperature materials such as quartz and glass. As a result, silicone rubber provides outstanding high and low temperature resistant properties as well as general inertness toward many deteriorating effects such as ozone, corona, weathering, UV rays, acids, bases, salts, oils, fuels, fluids, and food products.

Q: Why use it?

 

A: Miracle Cover offers superior protection than that of other organic sealers and compounds like Thomson’s Water seal and other Acrylic type products. Almost all other water based sealers are based on a derivative of Petroleum, or other synthetic compounds that are organic in nature, and generally this type of product will degrade over a short period of time when exposed to the elements. The initial costs may be cheaper, but you pay later because you have to re-treat the surface, usually on a Seasonal basis. If you have any doubts about this... JUST READ THE CAN!!!

Under most normal circumstances Miracle Cover requires only ONE application which will last for up to 20 yrs., if applied according to manufactures instructions. This saves you time and money since you don’t have to come back seasonally and pay again for the product/retreatment labor costs.

Miracle Cover is based on the revolutionary concept of using inorganic silica to create silicone rubber in a water-based product. This process produces a superior sealer that is impervious to almost everything mother nature can throw at it. Miracle Cover comes with a 20 manufacturer’s warranty.

One of the best features of Miracle Cover is that it is water-based, non toxic, and that means it is friendly to the environment. With our product; Hazardous waste removal and shipping, dangerous fumes, chemical odors, messy cleanup are a thing of the past. Clean up is as easy as soap and water. Along with being nontoxic, it has none of the properties that weaken other Petroleum Based Products on the market.

Q: How is it tested?

 

A: The Bremmer Test

The bremmer test is designed to simulate a 60 mile per hour wind driven rain on the tested product for a definite period of time. Measurements are made of water penetration every 5 minutes up to a 12 hour period on untreated product that had been previously sealed with MIRACLE COVER.

Products Tested:

The Bremmer test was conducted on a large brick, a small brick, and on mortar joints.

Q: How is it applied?

 

A: Application on Vertical Surfaces:

Application with an airless sprayer, garden/pump-up sprayer, brush, or roller are recommended for best results. Spray uniformly to form a continuous film. A three (3) to four (4) inch run-down is desirable for most vertical surfaces. The application rate may vary depending on the porosity and texture of the surface. MIRACLE COVER must be applied to a clean, dry surface free from water, dirt, oil, and other materials to allow for best penetration and adhesion. The repellent must not be applied during inclement weather or when precipitation appears imminent.

Application on Horizontal Surfaces:

Use the same methods as on vertical surfaces and apply enough MIRACLE COVER to saturate the surface. Remove any excess MIRACLE COVER that "puddles", as these spots will discolor and become slippery when wet.

General Application Information:

Water saturated surfaces may reduce penetration. Damp substrates will increase cure time, but will not harm the effectiveness of the sealer. When utilizing a sprayer, spray to saturation level making sure all substrate has come in contact with the product. Cover and protect all surfaces not to be treated (i.e. glass, shrubbery, etc.). Immediately wash sealer off surfaces not to be treated with soap and water. If set up has occurred, clean equipment with mineral spirits or paint thinner.

Paint Additive:

MIRACLE COVER can be mixed with paint (Latex or any other water or oil based) or stain. This enables the paint to take on the water proofing properties of the sealant without affecting it's quality and eliminates the need of a paint primer. Add one (1) cup of MIRACLE COVER per gallon of paint. Coverage is the same as indicated by the paint supplier.

Drying Time:

Drying time will vary according to temperature, humidity, and wind conditions. Under cool and/or humid conditions, a day or two may be required for complete evaporation of liquid.

Q: What does it do for me?

 

A: All of the following and more
 

  1. Produces a clear, transparent, penetration film on any surface and doesn't discolor or degrade when exposed to ultraviolet radiation.

  2. Has proprietary additives which enable it to penetrate porous materials. The water evaporates, leaving silicone rubber under the surface.

  3. Is resistant to salt and acids, cannot be attacked by insects (including termites), prevents mold, stretches to handle structural movement, up to 400%, and is an excellent bonding agent.

  4. Provides maximum water repellency for masonry, wood, concrete, and other materials and helps protect them from salt spray and acid rain.

  5. Is "breathable", allowing moisture vapor to permeate the coating while repelling surface water.

  6. Is environmentally and biologically safe, containing no solvents.

  7. Is nontoxic and has no flash point.

  8. Can be mixed with both water based and oil based paints to give you instant water proofing in one easy application.

  9. Has virtually unlimited uses and can be applied to any of the following surfaces (and more):

    • Asphalt
    • Brick
    • Cloth
    • Concrete
    • Leather
    • Metal
    • Plastic
    • Plywood
    • Stucco
    • Shingles
    • Tile
    • Wood

One application will substantially prolong the life, beauty, and usefulness of wood, concrete, tile, and masonry materials.
