Sefton, a small residential suburb in Sydney’s inner-west, provides a train station on the Inner West railway line of the Sydney CityRail network. Clustered around the train station are fruit shops, a pharmacy, a gunsmith, a funeral parlour, several residential blocks. The station has a simple island platform, but is a high-traffic area during peak hours, late nights and weekends.
The client had a number of special requirements for this high traffic public site:
With approximately 400m2 of Sandstone, careful consideration was needed to not only seal the historic train station, but to also maintain its rustic aesthetic. There were a number of prerequisites for choosing the sealer for this project:
- Longevity – because such a high-traffic environment would lead to costly and disruptive re-application.
- The look of the historic site had to be maintained.
- With thousands of people using the station, slip resistance could not be compromised.
- Sealed surfaces should be easier to maintain and clean and must withstand commercial alkaline cleaning chemicals and pressure washing.
THE STAIN-PROOF® SOLUTION:
CityRail approved STAIN-PROOF Premium Impregnating Sealer, formerly known as STAIN-PROOF Original™, as the best solution for protection of the granite and sandstone surface.
Because the specially designed sealing molecules in Premium Impregnating Sealer are hundreds of times smaller than other penetrating sealers, the sealer works from inside the pores of the material and has little effect on slip resistance. Premium Impregnating Sealer’s modified silane technology was designed for highly alkaline environments and the sealer also permanently bonds to the surface materials by chemical reaction, actually becoming part of the material. So Premium Impregnating Sealer easily withstands strong alkaline commercial cleaners and pressure washing. A 15 year performance warranty certificate can be supplied when Premium Impregnating Sealer is applied by an Accredited Applicator.
