WHAT IS CURE & SEAL?
Cure & Seals take the properties of both curing compounds and membrane forming sealers and combines them to yield the best performance properties of both. Where normal curing resins last only weeks before they wear off, some Cure & Seals will last up to to 5 years, depending on which product is applied. When applied correctly, Cure & Seals form a hard, shiny and durable surface that resists all waterborne contaminants and protects the concrete through its infancy and early life.WHY CURE?
Concrete curing is the satisfactory maintenance of adequate moisture around and in newly placed concrete. Curing compound, applied immediately following placement, allows concrete to develop the necessary desired strength and durability. Concrete exposed to the elements is especially sensitive to improper curing because the strength development can be significantly reduced from excessive surface evaporation and exposure to freezing.
Concrete sealers are used on concrete to close up the pores in the concrete surface so it will resist water, de-icing salts, and other aggressive chemicals. Sealers are often used to prevent soiling, resist staining, facilitate the ease of cleaning, brighten concrete colors and exposed aggregates, and produce a water resistant surface. Sealers may also be used to dustproof concrete surfaces. Superior quality sealers usually consist of pure forms of acrylic resin that are non-styrenated and non-yellowing. Quality concrete sealers will last three to five years and require minimal maintenance.
CRETESEAL 30 is a ready to use, acrylic copolymer designed to cure concrete and provide a durable protective coating for both interior and exterior concrete surfaces.
CRETESEAL 30 is a water white, fast drying, power sprayable cure and seal with excellent resistance to yellowing. It forms a tough, impervious bond to concrete that is resistant to fresh cement alkalis, salts, most stains and dirt penetration.
CRETESEAL 30 is designed to provide a clear film to promote proper cure and hardening of new concrete and to enhance all concrete surfaces, both new and existing, by developing an abrasion resistant, glossy film. CRETESEAL 30 when applied to exposed aggregate as a sealer prevents premature weathering and enhances the beauty by providing a durable, glossy film. CRETESEAL 30 protects terrazzo floors, concrete tiles, and exposed panels against discoloration caused by efflorescence, dust, air pollutants and spillage of mild chemicals and mild petroleum products. A two coat application on exterior surfaces will minimize the possibility of scaling.
CRETESEAL 30 should be used for the curing, sealing and dust proofing of:
- Floor Slabs
- Exterior Pavements
- Exposed Aggregate Surfaces
- Concrete Tilt-Up Panels
- Terrazzo Floors
- Parking Garages, Walls & Columns
