How does CONSEAL™ seal concrete?
Why does CONSEAL™ work better than other so called penetrating sealers?
The key to effectively sealing concrete with any silicate based material is to get the silicate to access as much of the free lime and alkali present within any concrete. CONSEAL™ contains a proprietary blend of 16 different enzymes and surfactants, which act as a catalyst to facilitate truly deep penetration of the material. Tests conducted have shown CONSEAL ™ to penetrate as deep as 8 inches.
How is CONSEAL™ packaged?
How is CONSEAL™ applied?
How soon after the concrete is poured/finished may your product
How long do I have to wait before I can walk on the concrete slab after
CONSEAL™ has been applied?
Are there any temperature minimums or maximums for the
Are there any minimums for the ambient air?
The air temperature should not drop below freezing for at least 72 hours during and after the application of the CONSEAL™. The misting water should be kept from freezing.
Does the water that is sprayed on have a temperature requirement?
Normal tap water can be used to mist the floor before applying CONSEAL™ and to mist the floor after the application. Chlorinated water has no adverse effect on the chemical reaction.
What effect does temperature play with respect to how well the
CONSEAL™ will work?
Will the product work faster or create a dryer slab if the temperature is above a certain threshold?
"Room temperature" would be ideal and the product will work a little faster under these conditions; but no, the concrete will not be dryer. The CONSEAL™ has a voracious affinity for the calcium hydroxide and will find it regardless of the temperature; aside from freezing, as we explained above.
Will your product have any effect on the design properties that
the Engineer or Architect has stipulated for this floor?
Is CONSEAL™ compatible with all of the floor mastics for both
carpet and Armstrong™ VCT?
Is it okay for your product to be stored in freezing temperatures?
Although we don’t recommend it and we advise against storing CONSEAL™ in freezing temperatures, if the material does freeze, its potency will not be affected. Simply allow the material to thaw and agitate to ensure that the contents achieve a homogeneous mix.
If any of your product is accidentally sprayed on adjacent surfaces/materials what if any is the negative effect?
Possibly a white deposit will occur if the material is allowed to dry. While the material is still wet, simply rinse with fresh water.
Slight overspray will not affect the gyp board; however, if a significant amount of material is sprayed on the board, a white deposit will occur. Allow the material to dry and brush the "powder" off.
Yes, CONSEAL™ will etch aluminum and glass. Shield or mask these surfaces to protect them from any overspray. If some material does get onto the aluminum or glass, wash the surface immediately with a wet rag to remove.
No adverse reactions between any caulking or sealants are known.
Since brass is a relatively soft metal, like aluminum, CONSEAL™ will likely tarnish brass surfaces.
