WATER-BASE ACRYLIC CURING AND SEALING COMPOUND
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
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.
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.

Approximately 300 sq. ft./gal.

Coverages may vary due to porosity and condition of the concrete.
Surface Preparation... New Concrete: Apply VOCOMP-20 when the surface water
has disappeared and the concrete surface will not be marred by walking
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.
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.
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.
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.
