OKON PLUGGER is water base, low VOC, acrylic microemulsion specifically designed to protect both new and existing porous concrete surfaces. The special blend of acrylic resin and water repellent additives provides
multiple benefits especially important when protecting very porous CMU.
The acrylic resin reduces the pore size of the substrate thereby reducing the capillary action that draws water into the substrate
The proprietary water repellent lowers the surface tensions and further counteracts the capillary pull.

How to Apply Okon Penetrating Acrylic Barriers Plugger
Clean surface using oil-free, compressed air to
remove loose and foreign matter that could interfere with application or performance of coating. Pressure wash surface to remove dust, sand or other foreign matter. Allow pressure washed surfaces to dry three days prior to
coating. Remove exterior mildew with JOMAX or equivalent. Remove efflorescence with sulfamic or dilute muriatic acid. Spot cleaning with acid may cause uneven porosity and blotchy appearance. Rinse the surface thoroughly after chemical cleaning. Un-rinsed acid salts may cause whitish-blotches to appear. Surface can be slightly damp at time of application.
PLUGGER is best applied by airless spray. Use a small to medium size airless pump (⅓-⅔ gpm) at 500 psi and a 0.031”- 0.035” tip. Protect adjacent and underlying surfaces from over spray and rundown. The surface temperature at time of application and for four hours after application is very important. Application to cold (<50°F) or to hot surfaces (>100°F) will reduce the durability of the material. Surfaces temperatures >100° F can be cooled by misting with water immediately prior to application. PLUGGER can be applied to damp but not wet surfaces. The surface is wet if moisture transfers to your hand when you touch it or if it glistens in appearance.
