VOCOMP®-20

WATER-BASE ACRYLIC CURING AND SEALING COMPOUND

DESCRIPTION
SEALTIGHT VOCOMP-20 Water-Base Acrylic Curing and Sealing Compound is formulated of special acrylic copolymers in a true water-base carrier. It is a ready-to-use curing and sealing compound.

Once properly applied, VOCOMP-20 provides an impermeable seal for efficient moisture retention. Color-wise, VOCOMP-20 appears "milky white" in the container and, when first applied, it leaves a "bluish" cast on the concrete for easy, visual identification of coverage. VOCOMP-20 dries clear to provide a transparent sheen finish. If a greater sheen is desired, a coat of VOCOMP-25 or VOCOMP-30 may be applied. (Refer to Data Sheet Nos. 369 & 374). VOCOMP-20 resists yellowing due to ultraviolet degradation and provides a durable, long-lasting finish that offers improved resistance to chemicals, petroleum and abrasives.

VOCOMP-20 will minimize hair-checking, premature cracking, dusting and spalling. However, good concrete and good concreting practices should be used as VOCOMP-20 is not a cure-all for improperly mixed or placed concrete. VOCOMP-20 meets maximum VOC content limits of 350 g/L for Concrete Curing Compounds as required by the U.S. EPA Architectural Coatings Rule.

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.

USES
VOCOMP-20 Water-Base Acrylic Curing and Sealing Compound may be quickly and easily applied to simultaneously cure and/or seal new interior and exterior, vertical and horizontal concrete surfaces. 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-20 dries very quickly to protect and enhance the natural appearance of concrete.

Application Tools


Manual Sprayer

APPLICATION
Surface Preparation
... New Concrete: Apply VOCOMP-20 when the surface water has disappeared and the concrete surface will not be marred by walking workmen.

Application Method... VOCOMP-20 is ready-to-use "as is" from the container. A typical, manual sprayer provides an easy, economical method of application. VOCOMP-20 should be sprayed on with an 8001 tip that produces a flow of 1/10th of a gallon per minute. Spray on in a fine, fog pattern without spurts and dribbles to form a thin continuous film. AVOID PUDDLING in low areas...if puddles occur, brush or roll them out.For added protection and a greater sheen on the concrete, a coat of VOCOMP-25-1315 may be applied after the first coat of VOCOMP-20 has dried.

Drying Time...VOCOMP 20 dries very quickly. Drying times may be extended, depencing on application rate, temperature, humidity and project conditions, Restrict foot traffic for at least 4 hours...12 hours is preferable.

Clean Up...While VOCOMP-20 is still wet, equipment may be easily cleaned with soap and water. Once dried, the material may be removed with a solvent such as Xylene or Toluene.

PRECAUTIONS
KEEP FROM FREEZING. Do not apply VOCOMP-20 when air, material and surface temperatures are expected to fall below 40ºF (4ºC) within 4 hours of completed application. VOCOMP-20 may be applied to colored concrete, but mottling may occur. Do not use on non-porous surfaces or surfaces which are not uniform in porosity, i.e. brick, stone, masonry, etc.

Concrete floors properly cured with VOCOMP-20 meet Section 8.9 "Adhesion of Tile Cements" of ASTM C 1315. For other specifications, secure the approval of the paint or resilient flooring manufacturer before applying VOCOMP-20. The specifier and user shall determine the suitability of the product for specific applications and assume all responsibilities in connection therewith.

HEALTH HAZARDS
Do not apply this product in locations where food items are present. Direct contact may cause mild to moderate irritation. Refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for complete Health and Safety Information.
