SafeGuard is a semi-transparent protective coating for the long-lasting protection of structural surfaces in within the building envelope (i.e.“conditioned spaces”).
All structural surfaces in soon-to-be conditioned areas (i.e. structural framing) and for post-remediation specifications.
SafeGuard is used to protect most structural construction materials including treated and untreated lumber, plywood, OSB, particle board, cement board, wallboard, composite construction materials and metals. Probable areas of use are structural surfaces within the building envelope including warm-side sheathing, trusses, framing, joists, plates, pillars, posts, beams, gypsum board and backer board.
- Breathable to prevent dry or wet rot conditions
Applies and dries to a semi-transparent finish for quality control
- Acts as a moisture barrier to prevent moisture content increases
- Forms a tough, resistant barrier to moisture and contaminants

SafeGuard is formulated as a ready-to-
use coating and should not be diluted. 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.
For best results, apply at 160 ft2 per gallon (800 ft2 per pail = 10 wet mils) based upon location, surface texture, porosity, age and application method. Does not include loss from over-spray or over-use.
A BARRIER TO THE ENVIRONMENT
By placing a physical antimicrobial-protected barrier between the structure and the environment, both moisture and contaminant control is certain.
While SafeGuard is moisture resistant to the environment, it does allow water vapor to pass between the environment and the structural surfaces. So if moisture content is high, SafeGuard helps prevent against wet rot and conversely, it prevents dry rot.
