30% SOLIDS WATER-BASE ACRYLIC CURING AND SEALING
Cures and/or seals interior or exterior
concrete surfaces without after-yellowing or changing the natural color of the
VOCOMP-30 is part of the third generation of curing and sealing products from W.
R. MEADOWS, Inc.
A potable water approved product (in accordance with
Standard ANSI/NSF 61-1997B 69RL) is available upon request. A copy of this
approval is also available upon request.
VOCOMP-30 is a ready-to-use 30% solids, curing and sealing compound,
formulated using "state-of-the-art" resins in a true water-base
carrier. This formulation appears "milky white" in the container and
when just applied, leaves a "bluish cast" on the concrete for easy
visual identification of coverage. It dries clear to provide a transparent sheen
finish. VOCOMP-30 will not after-yellow or change the natural color of concrete.
It also significantly reduces blushing. VOCOMP-30 provides an excellent,
thicker, long lasting film finish that offers improved resistance to most
chemicals, petroleum and abrasives.
When properly applied, VOCOMP-30 produces an impermeable seal for superior
moisture retention. For added protection and an even higher sheen finish on the
concrete surfaces, a second coat of VOCOMP-30 may be applied. VOCOMP-30 will
minimize hair-checking, premature cracking, dusting and spalling. However, good
concrete and good concrete practices should be used as VOCOMP-30 is not a
cure-all for improperly mixed or placed concrete.
VOCOMP-30 meets maximum VOC content of 700 g/L for Concrete Curing and Sealing
Compounds as required by U.S. EPA Architectural Coatings Rule.
VOCOMP-30 may be used wherever a thicker film, high-gloss sheen finish
is desired. It may be quickly and easily applied to cure, seal and dustproof new
and old, interior and exterior, vertical and horizontal concrete surfaces. When
properly applied, VOCOMP-30 produces an impermeable seal for superior moisture
retention. It is ideal for application on commercial and industrial floors,
sidewalks, basement and garage floors, multi-level parking decks, patios,
driveways and parking areas. VOCOMP-30 dries very quickly to protect and enhance
the natural appearance of concrete.

SURFACE PREPARATION...OLD CONCRETE: Surface
preparation is extremely important. Concrete must always be clean and dry, with
all stains, oil, grease, dust and dirt removed prior to application. If not,
they will be amplified by the transparent sheen finish. CAUTION: If a liquid
compound other than VOCOMP-20, VOCOMP-25-1315, VOCOMP-30, CS309-1315 or
TIAH-1315 has been used, do not apply VOCOMP-30 until all traces of the compound
have been completely removed and the surface is clean and dry. NEW CONCRETE:
Once the surface will accept walking workmen without marring, then the surface
is ready for the application of VOCOMP-30.
APPLICATION METHOD...VOCOMP-30 is ready to use from the
container. A typical commercial sprayer provides an easy, economical method of
application. Use a Chapin 8001 spray tip that produces a flow of 1/10th of a
gallon per minute. VOCOMP-30 should be sprayed on in a fine, fog pattern,
without spurts and dribbles, to form a thin, continuous film. AVOID PUDDLING in
low areas.... if puddles occurs, brush or roll them out.
DRYING TIME: VOCOMP-30 dries very quickly on new,virgin concrete. Drying times
may be extended on old concrete due to surface conditions. Restrict foot traffic
for at least 4 hours; 12 hours is preferable.
NOTE: For added protection and a greater sheen on new or old concrete, we
recommend (2) coats of VOCOMP-30 be applied at right angles. Additional coats of
VOCOMP-30 may be applied after the previous coat has thoroughly dried.
Naturally, drying time may vary depending on temperature, humidity and project
CLEANUP: While still wet, equipment may be cleaned quickly
and easily with soap and water. Once dried, the material may be removed with a
solvent such as Xylene or Toluene.

DO NOT DILUTE. KEEP FROM FREEZING. Use material "as is" from
the container. Do not apply if the temperature of the concrete is less than
40ºF (4ºC) Do not paint or apply resilient flooring over VOCOMP-30 without
first checking the specifications and securing the approval of the paint or
resilient flooring manufacturer. Do not us on non-porous surfaces or surfaces
which are not uniform in porosity, i.e. brick, stone, masonry etc. VOCOMP-30 may
also be applied to colored concrete, but mottling may occur. NOTE: Concrete
floors properly sealed with VOCOMP-30 meet Section 8.9 "Adhesion of Tile
Cements" of ASTM C 1315. Read and follow application information,
precautions, and Material Safety Data information.
Do not apply this product in locations where food items are present. Direct
contact may cause mild to moderate irritation.
