Top 5 Tips for Molecule [DS] Driveway Sealer
➢ Molecule [DS] should be installed within an
ambient and surface temperature range of 40º-
90º F (4.4-32.2 C). Shaded, low sunlight, or colder areas will
lengthen cure times. Conversely, direct sun,
warmer areas will shorten cure times. Avoid
temperatures at or below freezing or above 100º F (0-38 C)
for application, curing phase, or storage.
➢ Molecule [DS] is a water-based, fluoropolymer,
penetrating sealer. The curing phase is dependent
upon complete evaporation of the water
component (usually 4-12 hours in optimal)
➢ Apply Molecule [DS] in one single application
coat. Do not divide recommended application
rates into multiple coats. Always consult
manufacturer coverage rate guidelines, or contact
our Technical Support desk by phone
877-356-2250, or by email Info@TechniSoil.com.
➢ Do not apply Molecule [DS] within a minimum of
24 hours before or after rainfall. In excessively wet
conditions, allow project area to dry completely
➢ Clean driveway thoroughly before applying.
Molecule [DS] should not be applied over the top
of other sealers, stains, efflorescence, or dirt as it
may affect adhesion, cure, & finished aesthetic.
➢ Always perform a test section using
recommended installation methods to confirm
suitability of materials and project conditions!
➢ Remove all existing sealers, stains, dirt,
efflorescence, & debris with environmentally safe
cleaning agent before applying Molecule [DS].
➢Surface must be completely clean and dry before
➢ Do not apply in wet conditions. Plan a minimum
24 hour time window free of rainfall for
application and curing phase.
➢ Coverage rates may vary based on surface
porosity, and joint width, depth, & material.
➢ Keep project area free from any moisture such as
rain or irrigation sprinklers, vehicular traffic, or
otherwise until fully cured (4-12 hours in optimal
Installation of Molecule [DS] Driveway Sealer
➢ For best results, thoroughly remove any residual
sand, dust or aggregates from the surface using a
leaf blower or broom before applying Molecule
➢ Mask or shield any adjacent surfaces in case of
overspray or accidental application.
➢ Pour contents of Molecule [DS] bottle into a 1-5
gallon (3.8-19 litre) capacity handheld or backpack pump
➢ Carefully plan application process to avoid under
or over application and ‘painting into a corner’.
➢ Visually map out sections of application area
according to recommended coverage rate to
ensure proper coverage.
○ TIP: If the recommended coverage rate
is 400 ft2/gallon, measure an area that
matches 400 ft2 (20’ x 20’ for example)
and set a small indicating marker at the
beginning and end of the section. Ensure
1 gallon of sealer has been evenly
distributed over the section.
➢ Spray Molecule [DS] evenly over surface using a
side-to-side motion. Avoid puddling or significant
runoff of sealer.
➢ Sealer will have a muted white hue initially which
quickly dissipates and turns clear.
IMPORTANT! Before sealer fully
penetrates and/or turns clear, use foam
rubber squeegee to evenly distribute
over the application surface.
➢ A 3/8” (1 cm) nap roller, grout sponge, or foam paint
brush may be used to apply sealer in hard to
➢ During application, avoid foaming sealer. If
foaming occurs, distribute the liquid evenly using
a squeegee or sponge.
➢ IMPORTANT! Do not divide recommended
application rates into multiple coats. Always
consult manufacturer coverage rate guidelines or
contact technical support at: 877-356-2250.
Cure Times for Molecule [DS] Driveway Sealer
Keep treated project areas free of any moisture
such as rain or irrigation sprinklers, foot traffic, or
otherwise until fully cured (usually 4-12 hours in
Clean all tools immediately after use by simply
rinsing tools with water and a soft bristle brush.
In case of accidental sealer spill onto tools,
equipment, or adjacent surfaces, clean
immediately with soap and water as needed.
For dried sealer, use a 1:1 acetone / water
mixture and a brush to scrub affected
areas. Use caution, acetone will remove
paint from surfaces.
Storage of Molecule [DS] Driveway Sealer
Store unused Molecule [DS] with lid secured
indoors and out of direct sunlight in a
temperature range of 40º-90º F (4.4-32.2 C). Do not allow material to freeze
For periodic maintenance of surface sealed with
Molecule [DS], use Molecule [HS] Hardscape
Shampoo to clean and bolster the protectant
Molecule [DS] maintenance coats can be applied
at the recommended application rates at any
time, usually 6-24 months after initial application
