SECTION 3: PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
DEEP SEAL is a cloudy white (dries clear) odorless, environmentally neutral, zero VOC /VOS penetrate in a colloidal liquid base.
SECTION 4: BASIC USE
When applied to already-set Portland cement concrete, DEEP SEAL integrally seals, waterproofs, densifies, and preserves, attributes
beneficial to concrete of any age, at any point during its useful life span. DEEP SEAL provides concrete an effective chloride ion barrier preserving its imbedded steel while removing potential for hostile
contaminant ingress and significantly reducing vapor transmission rate, effectively also preserving treated concrete's integrity. A DEEP SEAL treatment further increases surface abrasion resistance, and
surface acid / chemical damage resistance. As DEEP SEAL penetrates extraordinarily deeply into concrete, it prolifically reacts with interior ingredients, ie, free alkali or unused calcium hydroxide
residue, etc. These reactions prolifically convert DEEP SEAL's unusually low solids colloidal liquid to a 100% solids especially-formulated very insoluble precipitate, instantly providing additional density
by becoming an integral part of the concrete, occupying its accessible porosity and other tiny voids, forming a breathable barrier which begins in concrete's transitional porosity, located beneath its large
surface porosity and its small microporosity, and deeper. The uniquely-induced barrier generates no heat during its liquid to solids conversion, nor expansion pressures at any time. The internally-generated
pollutant barrier remains resilient and consists of pore sizes that are much smaller than concrete micropores, significantly dimishing void percentages thus permeability, allowing concrete to retain ability to
breathe, expand, and contract as it needs to. The internal barriers, complete with its extremely small porosity, greatly reduce or eliminates the transmission of gases such as radon. DEEP SEAL halts /
greatly retards, internal existing corrosive activities, removing electrolyte availability, as it supplements, densifies, waterproofs, strengthens, and internally detoxifies concrete without deleterious effect
to external appearance or physical characteristics. A DEEP SEAL treatment will not impair concrete's surface traction quality and will further enhance its surface bonding ability. Areas that are to be
treated need only be closed during treatment, and may be reopened immediately after treating. However, where a surface coating is planned, wait at least 8 hours following a DEEP SEAL treatment (not necessary if
surface was blasted), then flush with water, removing purged salts, particles, sediments, etc., if any. Surface may then be prepared to coating manufacturer specifications. DEEP SEAL is excellent as a
primer application for surface treatments. DEEP SEAL addresses reasons for potential early coating failures such as alkaline capillary moisture accumulation, saponification, laitance effect, etc. Since
DEEP SEAL is applied to old or new concrete without affecting surface quality, it may be used for the enhancement of all concrete installations, whether traffic bearing or not, such as auto traffic pavements,
bridge decks, parking garage decks, airport pavements, hydro dams, pavers, sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, etc. DEEP SEAL arrests leakage through concrete even while occurring. For example, water storage
reservoirs, water treatment tanks, or below grade concrete, etc., with or without hydrostatic pressure. DEEP SEAL will travel against water flow when applied to negative side, permanently arresting the flow of
AS A CURE METHOD:
DEEP SEAL is excellent as an alternative concrete curing method, providing a cure equal to, or better than, water curing. DEEP SEAL as a
cure method provides concrete the usual benefits of a curing agent, plus, DEEP SEAL provides special ingredients to the yet-available capillary mix water, waiting to participate in hydration reaction rates and
processes, in the plastic or semi-plastic mix, reciprocating acceleration of hydrations reaction rates and processes, in turn generating increased volumes of cement paste / hydration product, in a significantly
shorter period of time, utilizing all of the remaining capillary water and leaving none to later evaporate and leave void spaces. As a result of utilizing all remaining capillary mix water, the concretes
capillary void spaces become more segmented and smaller than usual. DEEP SEAL provides concrete a superior cure imparting extraordinary strength, surface hardness and impermeability, subsequently
translating to greatly-improved durability. The DEEP SEAL cure method provides concrete an especially formulated permanent subsurface precipitate barrier containing pore sizes smaller than concretes
micropores, even further diminishing porosity / permeability, effectively forcing gases such as radon to seek other avenues of escape instead of passing through the concrete, where applicable. The DEEP
SEAL cure method leaves no surface residue to interfere with surface bonding quality, important where striping or applying a topical. Utilizing DEEP SEAL as an alternative cure method produces concrete
significantly more waterproof, abrasion resistant, freeze damage resistant, dust resistant, acid / chemical resistant, etc.
SECTION 5: INSTALLATION SUGGESTIONS
On Already-Set Concrete:
Note: In hot climates, mist-wet the surface with water and remove any puddles prior to application.
Apply DEEP SEAL using a medium to high-pressure airless spray unit, complete with fan spray nozzle. Holding spray tip 6 inches from
the surface, apply DEEP SEAL at a minimum rate of 200 square feet per gallon with an overlapping spray pattern of 20-30%. Begin application at the lowest elevation. For example, walls and slopes
should be applied side to side, from the bottom up.
As An Alternative Cure Method:
Apply with a low-pressure non-atomizing, spray apparatus such as a pump-tank sprayer or mechanical cure slurry pump, or alternatively by
flooding-on. DEEP SEAL is ideally applied to the newly- poured concrete surface as soon as is practical. Should conditions require the surface to be walked on, for application, concrete should be
allowed the time to adequately harden, so as not to imprint or mar its surface during application. Recommended minimum coverage rate as a cure method is 150 square feet per gallon.
LIMITATIONS: DEEP SEAL contacting glass should be flushed with water and not be allowed to dry since glass may etch. DEEP SEAL will
dull the shine on shiny aluminum; however, aluminums integrity will be otherwise unaffected.
SECTION 6: PRECAUTIONS
- Any coatings that may restrict access to the concretes interior must be chemically or mechanically removed for DEEP SEAL to penetrate.
- Protect areas not intended for coverage.
- DEEP SEAL may etch glass or dull shiny aluminum and can be difficult to remove from other surfaces once it dries.
- Do not apply on frozen substrate or when temperature is near freezing.
- DEEP SEAL spray mist is not hazardous to breathe. However, we do recommend the use of a face mask during application. Refer to MSDS.
