WATER-BASE, WAX-BASE CONCRETE CURING COMPOUND
Provides an excellent cure and reflective
protection for highway, airport, street and curb concrete paving applications.
SEALTIGHT 1600-WHITE is a Water-Base, Wax-Base Concrete Curing Compound, that
when properly applied, provides an impermeable film which optimizes water
SEALTIGHT 1600-WHITE, Water-Base, Wax-Base Concrete Curing
Compound, when properly applied, provides an impermeable film which optimizes
water retention. The white pigment reflects the sun's rays to help keep the
concrete surface cooler and prevent excessive heat build-up. 1600-WHITE is a
true, water-base product which meets maximum VOC content of 350 g/L for Concrete
Curing Compounds as required by the U.S. Architectural Coatings Rule.
SEALTIGHT 1600-WHITE is ideal for application on exterior
horizontal surfaces such as highways, airports, street and curb paving – for
excellent curing when protection from the sun's heat is desired.
Advantages and Benefits
|When properly applied, it provides an impermeable film
which optimizes water retention
|Protects by reflecting the sun's rays to keep the
concrete surface cooler and prevent excessive heat buildup which can cause
|Furnished as a ready-to-use, true water-base compound
|Produces hard, dense concrete... minimizes
hair-checking, thermal cracking, dusting and other defects
|Enhances the functional capabilities of concrete by
"sealing-in" the performance assets of strength and long-life
|Offers a compressive strength significantly greater
than improperly cured concrete
|Increases tensile strength for greater resistance to
cracking and surface crazing
|Improves resistance to abrasion and corrosive action of
salts and chemicals...minimizes shrinkage
|Applies quickly and easily with conventional,
commercial spray equipment
|VOC compliant...meets the U.S. EPA Architectural
Coatings Rule requirements|
DRYING TIME: Depends on weather
conditions and coverage, but will generally dry in 1 hour. Restrict foot traffic
for at least 4 hours.
FLASH POINT: Greater than 212ºF (100ºC).
PREPARATION: Application equipment must
be clean and free of any previously used materials.
MIXING: Any settling in the drums can be easily redispersed with gentle
agitation prior to use. Do not mix excessively to avoid foaming.
NOTE: DO NOT MIX "WATER-BASE" COMPOUNDS WITH ANY COMPOUND CONTAINING
APPLICATION METHOD: Spray on in one even coat with a hand or power sprayer as
soon as the surface water disappears from horizontal concrete surfaces. Use a
Chapin 8005 spray tip that produces a flow of 1/2 gallon (1.89 liters) per
minute under 40 psi (.276 MPa) of pressure.
CLEANUP: Clean application equipment with soap and water.
Approximately 200 ft.²/gal. (4.9m²/L).
5 gallon (18.93 liter) Pails
55 gallon (208.20 liter) Drums
ASTM C 309, Type II, Class A
AASHTO M 148, Type II Class A
HEALTH HAZARDS: Direct contact may result
in mild irritation.
Do not use on surfaces that are later to be painted,
tiled, hardened, sealed or treated in any manner. Do not apply when the
temperature of the concrete is less than 40ºF (4ºC). DO NOT MIX WITH COMPOUNDS
CONTAINING SOLVENT. DO NOT ADD OR DILUTE WITH ANY OTHER COMPOUND. KEEP FROM
FREEZING. Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for complete health and safety
