PLASTICURE (WATER BASED)
TACKIFYING RESIN WATER BASE CURING COMPOUND
Oxidizes – Leaves Surface Clean
Coverage: 400 Square Feet/Gallon normally
200 Square Feet/Gallon in heat or strong wind
PlastiCure is a formulation of high molecular weight polymers compounded to form an impermeable film at the surface of fresh concrete. This film prevents the escape of surface moisture to ensure full hydration of the concrete surface. Used as directed, it prevents surface checking and cracking, even in hot windy weather.
Simple spray application replaces expensive water fogging, tedious placing of paper or polyethylene sheeting, or placing and wetting of straw, earth, rugs or similar materials.
The PlastiCure membrane lies within the uppermost levels of the concrete. It requires no cleaning up, scraping, rubbing, sandblasting or other preparation of the surface. If the surface is to be painted, tiled, or waxed, the only preparation required is simple cleaning of accumulated dirt and dust.
Apply light fine mist of water before application. Under normal weather conditions, one coat sprayed on at 400 FT SQ/GAL immediately after the final trowelling is all that is required to cure the concrete to a smooth, dense surface.
DENSE, SEALED SURFACE
The PlastiCure membrane within the concrete, together with the finishing operations, provides a smooth, dense, sealed surface that is resistant to cracking, checking and dusting under normal traffic.
PlastiCure Emulsions are not freeze/thaw stable. Protect from freezing. Keep containers tightly closed to prevent formation of fried film. If film does form, product should be filtered before use.
