PBS CHEM-BOND 2000
The chemistry of our proprietary exterior brick stain is a continually developing science. Preferred Brick Staining Nationwide has, with the help of knowledgeable scientists and researchers, developed one of the most technologically advanced stains ever produced. Chem-bond 2000 Masonry Stain penetrates deep into any masonry or stone surface. Aside from effectively staining exterior brick surfaces, it fills the capillaries and chemically bonds with the substrate. The pigmented stain becomes as permanent as the masonry itself. Because of the unique nature of the exterior brick stain, the masonry surface remains natural and is virtually unchanged in terms of its texture and its ability to breathe. Most masonry stains consist of basically the same elements: a solvent, a binder, pigment, and additives. Solvent – primarily water. Binder – Remains after solvent has evaporated Pigment – gives stain its color and opacity Additives – specific components added to improve application and performance The difference between a high quality stain which will chemically bond with a particular substrate and a low quality stain that does not chemically bond is the type of binder and quality of pigment that is used. Binder – most stains on the market use one of the following binders: acrylic emulsion or vinyl emulsion. Of the two, the acrylic is preferred by most staining companies. PBS Chem-Bond 2000 contains a hybrid binder that combines the flexibility and the breath ability of an acrylic binder with the durability of mineral silicates. This delicate and precise combination of binders causes the exterior brick stain to chemically combine as it penetrates and forms a micro-crystalline structure within the capillaries of the surface being stained. Because of this unique hybrid binder, our Chem-Bond 2000 Masonry Stain is unmatched in quality and durability. For this reason, we confidently provide a 40 year limited warrantee on any surface that will accept our stain. Simply put, if the surface will accept water, it will accept our exterior brick stain. Pigment – PBS Chem Bond 2000 uses only mineral inorganic colored pigments. These inorganic mineral pigments compliment the mineral binders allowing the pigment to join in the chemical bonding of the binder and the masonry substrate. This chemical reaction makes the pigment as permanent as the masonry itself and is UV resistant, guaranteed not to fade. In contrast, synthetic pigments, although brighter and more dramatic, will fade over time and will not chemically combine with the silicate binder. Additives – Specific additives greatly improve the performance of PBS Chem-Bond 2000. These additives include: Anti Stain agent – allows for a natural self cleaning process Wetting / Dispersing Agent – increases depth of penetration of solvent Drying/Curing Agent – increases the rate of evaporation and rate of bonding Anti Marring Agent – used to improve resistance to marring of stained surface Anti Mold Agent – used to reduce mold growth in damp humid environments. PBS Chem-Bond 2000 – provides the following benefits: Petrifaction (silification) – the result of the chemical bonding is a solid insoluble mineral compound of stain and substrate Water Vapor Permeability – the surface is able to breathe. The high water vapor permeability of PBS Chem-Bond 2000 is due to its crystalline nature which ensures that humidity that is present in the substrate can freely pass out from the structure. The breathe ability of the structure is maintained Regulation of Temperature – due to the microcrystalline structure, light rays and thermal rays are reflected reducing the thermal stress on the substrate. Excellent Light Fastness – Neither harsh climate nor high UV radiation can alter the color of the PBS Chem-Bond 2000 stain. Resistance to Acid – PBS Chem-Bond 2000 provides an effective protection against atmospheric sulfuric acid Environmentally Safe – PBS Chem-Bond is harmless to the environment. It consists of natural mineral compounds which have no deleterious effect on the environment in terms of manufacturing as well as in terms of application. Odorless, non-allergenic, and breath ability are outstanding features of PBS Chem-Bond 2000.
PBS Chem-Bond 3000 Mortar Stains
Mortar repair offers the brick staining process some unique challenges. PBSN is able to perfectly match color issues as well as repair cracked or damaged mortar. Depending upon the magnitude of the damage, our color specialist will prescribe the correct mortar repair solution. PBSN can provide you with a durable, tested, and warranted solution to your mortar staining problems. CB 3000 – Mortar Stain -uses CB 2000 stain with a different mineral silicate (combines more effectively with the calcium) than what is used on clay surfaces. CB 3000 is used to cosmetically change the color of the mortar. Fillers are added to aide in filling in minor crack lines in the mortar. CB 3100 – Quick Set – Rapidly adds strength as well as color to the mortar joint. CB 3100 uses a Portland cement base for horizontal concrete or mortar repair. CB 3200 – Polymer Patch – Used for both horizontal and vertical mortar repair with maximum bonding agents (added to CB 3100) for increased strength. CB 3300 – Epoxy Resin – Used for horizontal masonry repair, strongest bond to substrate, impact resistant, probably most durable stain on the market.
PBS Chem-Bond 4000 - Masonry Sealers
The PBS Chem-Bond Masonry sealers are unique in that they have the highest rated water repellant yet they also allow the treated surface to breathe. The reason for this is similar to the reason all our Chem-Bond products are so effective. There is no filmy water repellant on the surface; instead the CB 4000 sealers penetrate deep into the capillaries of the subsurface where chemical reaction takes place to form a long lasting water repellant compound. The long term effect is the ability to seal out moisture, reduce efflorescence and minimize damaging effects of the freeze-thaw cycle. CB 4000 was developed to help you preserve, prolong, and protect your valuable assets. Benefits of the PBS Chem-Bond 4000 Sealers: Highest rated water repellant 10 year warrantee Water based, VOC compliant Odorless Colorless Non staining, non yellowing Reduces efflorescence Breathable Does not alter texture or appearance of surface
PBS Chem-Bond 5000 Graffiti Remover
PBS Chem-Bond 5000 combined with the Chem-Bond 2000 Masonry Stain is the total solution for any graffiti problem. If it’s an impossible situation we can handle it. The more porous, the better! Nothing works better than CB 5000 on the most difficult porous surfaces. CB 5000 penetrates deeply into concrete, cement, brick, mortar, grout, and stone, virtually anything porous to dissolve and loosen graffiti. Special care must be taken when attempting to remove graffiti from masonry objects. Most masonry products are sensitive to abrasion resulting in the removal of the factory baked enamel surface. When improper cleaning methods are used, irreparable damage is done to the brick and mortar. The surface is now compromised and susceptible to water erosion and seeping. PBS Nationwide color specialists are trained in the proper application and removal of the poultice -an absorbent material combined with chemical cleaners held in constant contact with effected area. The cleaning agent, over time, permeates the masonry and softens the pigment which is then absorbed by the poultice without staining or wearing away the masonry surface. CB 5000 is a medium grade poultice which is brushed on and removed with a low pressure power sprayer to remove the graffiti without compromising the masonry surface. Then CB 2000 silica based stain is used to reinforce the enamel of the brick. Lastly a water based barrier coating is applied to further protect in the event of another graffiti attack.
Chem-Bond 6000 Dura-Smooth Specialty Stain
Using a multi-step application and a specialty primer, PBSN is able to match the color and texture of most specialty brick and block, including those with a glazed or hardened finishes. The durable weather resistant finish, like that of the CB 2000 is UV resistant. It carries a 25 year warrantee against fading. Because of its durable, glossy finish, it is easy to clean and is mold, mildew, and algae resistant. Chem-Bond 6000 can beautify the interior of a building as well as the exterior with an unlimited array of colors.
Chem-Bond 7000 Metallic Reflective Stain
PBSN color experts, using our metallic reflective stain, are able to produce a shimmering surface, made up of metallic particles that give the appearance of a prism. All the colors of the rainbow are represented as the sun reflects off the metallic surface of the newly stained brick. PBSN Chem-Bond 7000 has been used to satisfy the requirements of some of the most demanding architects.
