Once cured, MaxGuard forms a durable and stain-resistant flat-white finish that is water-resistant but breathable to prevent against both wet and dry rot. Additionally, MaxGuard’s low VOC formula contributes 1 point via LEED IEQ Credit 4.2 (low-emitting paints & coatings) to any project.
MaxGuard is formulated as a ready-to-use coating. It can be applied with a brush, roller or airless sprayer to obtain an even finish. Do not apply past the point of run off. A cross-hatching technique is the best way to ensure sufficient wet/dry film thickness and complete coverage. Consult the Enviroguard New Construction Warranty and Enviroguard Existing Construction Warranty documents for details.
