Q: What is it?
A: Miracle Cover Is a water- based emulsion (mixture) type Silicone Rubber Sealant, made and
Manufactured in the United States, and offers complete protection for porous and non-porous materials.
It is an exclusive formula that when applied correctly it penetrates, seals and waterproofs avoiding the
penetration of water, liquids, including oils and bleach. Miracle Cover dries to a clear transparent finish.
Miracle Cover penetrates the surfaces it protects, allowing them to breathe and as a result any moisture
or chemicals trapped in the interior of the surface can escape avoiding that he material to rot or
Silicone rubber is derived from inorganic silica (sand). Silicones were developed for commercial use
during World War II for military applications requiring extreme temperature resistance. Over the years,
numerous advances have been made, improving tensile strength, elongation, tear resistance, etc. In
addition to its broad temperature resistant properties, silicone rubber now possesses physical values
far superior to a number of other synthetic polymers. Silicone rubber is made up of a backbone of
silicone and oxygen atoms. This unique linkage is the same as that found in other high temperature
materials such as quartz and glass. As a result, silicone rubber provides outstanding high and low
temperature resistant properties as well as general inertness toward many deteriorating effects such as
ozone, corona, weathering, UV rays, acids, bases, salts, oils, fuels, fluids, and food products.
Q: Why use it?
A: Miracle Cover ™ offers superior protection than that of other organic sealers and compounds like
Thomson’s Water seal and other Acrylic type products. Almost all other water based sealers are based
on a derivative of Petroleum, or other synthetic compounds that are organic in nature, and generally this
type of product will degrade over a short period of time when exposed to the elements. The initial costs
may be cheaper, but you pay later because you have to re-treat the surface, usually on a Seasonal basis.
If you have any doubts about this... JUST READ THE CAN! But under most normal circumstances Miracle
Cover ™ requires only ONE application which will last for up to 20 yrs. If applied according to
manufactures instructions. This saves you time and money since you don’t have to come back
seasonally and pay again for the product/retreatment labor costs.
Miracle Cover ™ is based on the revolutionary concept of using inorganic silica to create silicone rubber
in a water-based product. This process produces a superior sealer that is impervious to almost
everything mother nature can throw at it. Miracle Cover ™ comes with a 20 year manufacturer’s warranty.
One of the best features of Miracle Cover ™ is that it is water-based, non toxic, and that means it is
friendly to the environment. With our product; Hazardous waste removal and shipping, dangerous fumes,
chemical odors, messy cleanup are a thing of the past. Clean up is as easy as soap and water. Along with
being nontoxic, it has none of the properties that weaken other Petroleum Based Products on the market

|Q: What will it protect/prevent?
A: Miracle Cover ™
- Rain damage
- Salt damage
- Dry rot
- Wet Rot
Freeze, thaw, cracking and sprawling
Insulation robbed of value from moisture
Oxidation of surface and material from sun/ozone
Rapid discoloration of fine exterior woods like cedar and redwood when
natural look is desired
|Q: How is it tested?
A: Bremmer Test
Bremmer Test: What Is It?
The Bremmer test is designed to simulate a 60 mile per hour wind driven rain on the tested product for a definite
period of time. Measurements are made of water penetration every 5 minutes up to a 12 hour period on untreated
product that had been previously sealed with Miracle Cover ™
The Bremmer test was conducted on a large brick, a small brick, and on mortar joints.

Q: How is it applied?
A: Application on Vertical Surfaces
Application with an airless sprayer, garden/pump-up sprayer, brush, or roller are recommended for best results. Spray uniformly to form
a continuous film. A three (3) to four (4) inch run-down is desirable for most vertical surfaces. The application rate may vary depending
on the porosity and texture of the surface. MIRACLE COVER must be applied to a clean, dry surface free from water, dirt, oil, and other
materials to allow for best penetration and adhesion. The repellent must not be applied during inclement weather or when precipitation
Application on Horizontal Surfaces:
Use the same methods as on vertical surfaces and apply enough Miracle Cover ™ to saturate the surface. Remove any excess that
Miracle Cover ™ that "puddles", as these spots will discolor and become slippery when wet.
General Application Information:
Water saturated surfaces may reduce penetration. Damp substrates will increase cure time, but will not harm the effectiveness of the
sealer. When utilizing a sprayer, spray to saturation level making sure all substrate has come in contact with the product. Covers and
protects all surfaces not to be treated (i.e glass, shrubbery, etc.). Immediately wash sealer off surfaces not to be treated with soap and
water. If set up has occurred, clean equipment with mineral spirits or paint thinner.
Miracle Cover ™ can be mixed with paint (Latex or any other water or oil based) or stain. This enables the paint to take on the water
proofing properties of the sealant without affecting it's quality and eliminates the need of a paint primer. Add one (1) cup of Miracle
Cover ™ per gallon of paint. Coverage is the same as indicated by the paint supplier.
Drying time will vary according to temperature, humidity, and wind conditions. Under cool and/or humid conditions, a day or two may be
required for complete evaporation of liquid.
