Multi-surface

Q: Will Thompson’s® WaterSeal® Clear Multi-Surface Waterproofer impart color to my deck, concrete, or brick surface?

No. Thompson’s® WaterSeal® Clear Multi-Surface Waterproofer applies white but dries clear and allows your wood to gray naturally over time. Prior to covering the entire surface, a test patch should be done in an inconspicuous place. The test patch will give you an indication as to whether you will like the look of a clear product.

Q: How do I know if my surface needs waterproofing?

Simply perform the splash test. Sprinkle water on various sections of the surface to be sealed. If the water absorbs and darkens the color of the substrate within five seconds, the surface is porous and ready to be treated. If the water beads up or otherwise sits on top of the surface, then it does not need protection at this time.

Q: I applied Thompson’s® WaterSeal® Clear Multi-Surface Waterproofer and it has not dried. What happened?

“More is not better”. The situation that you have described is an over-application of Thompson’s® WaterSeal® Clear Multi-Surface Waterproofer. The “excess” is due to the fact that Thompson’s® WaterSeal® Clear Multi-Surface Waterproofer was unable to penetrate into the substrate. Because of this, you need to make sure that the surface is completely dry and free of debris prior to applying. If over-application occurs and there is puddling of the product, redistribute product within 15 minutes to a dry area or wipe off.

Q: Will the formula of Thompson’s® WaterSeal® Sport Seal® or Fabric Seal change the feel of the treated surface?

No. These products will not change the surface’s feel or leave it sticky.

Q: What fabrics can be treated with Thompson’s® WaterSeal® Sport Seal®?

Q: What fabrics can be treated with Thompson’s® WaterSeal® Fabric Seal?

Q: Does Thompson’s® WaterSeal® Fabric Seal resist color fading?
