SECTION 3: PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD, a water-clear, odorless, non-petroleum, colloidal liquid which is environmentally neutral, contains zero
VOC/VOS, and is user friendly.
SECTION 4: BASIC USE
DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD penetrates / permeates Portland cement concrete very readily when applied to its surface penetrating to
extraordinary depths, depending on concrete permeability factor etc. DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD effectively attacks existent conditions that can create and/or promote corrosion activity, if any, arresting /
preventing, or at the very least significantly retarding, rust producing reactions. In order for corrosion to exist, the observed facts are, water (H20) and molecular oxygen (02) are essential ingredients; The
presence of the H' (aqueous hydrogen) ion speeds up reactions, plus the presence of some metals retard or hinder corrosion while other type of metals accelerate it. Theories about why corrosion occurs vary;
however, the most promising mechanism suggested is a many-step process in which the following sequence of events occur: (1) The steel (iron) acts as an anode (electrode at which oxidation occurs) to give up two
electrons (particles which carry one unit of electrical charge) leaving two protons in the iron without their electron counterparts creating Fe+2 (ferrous) ion; (2) The errant electrons are picked up by an
H+ ion to form transient neutral H (hydrogen) atoms; (3) The H atoms are immediately oxidized by 02 to four H2O; (4) The Fe+2 ion is oxidized by 02 in the presence of H2O to form rust. Rust is not a simple
compound, as its name implies, but seems to be an indefinite hydrate of Fe203. Acids catalyze rust formation because they provide an H+ ion to accept electrons from the iron, causing it to dissolve faster.
Oxygen gas is necessary to oxidize Fe+2 to Fe203, which would be non-corrosive without the presence of an electrolyte. The presence of water (electrolyte) facilitates migration of Fe+2 from the reaction site,
and reduction of Fe+2 concentration permits rusting (corroding) to resume / exist. Subsequently, one of the easiest ways to prevent rusting (corrosion) of the iron is to shut out the 02 / H2O supply.
DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD performs its objectives by doing this, plus neutralization of acids where applicable, end by deaeration of
corrosion product (rust) where applicable, and along with permanent conversion of steel oxide coating to Fe203, with removal of electrolyte presence, whether steel has begun to corrode or not. In addition, as a
preventive, in installations not yet experiencing corrosion problems, DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD has ability to reduce the chloride ion content, present in concrete accessible porosity. Furthermore, internally
generated DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD precipitate which is permanently deposited in DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD paths of reticulation, while penetrating concrete to its imbedded steel, permanently deprives the
treated concrete of the very necessary ingredient of corrosion electrolyte. DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD will not alter concrete surface appearance or physical characteristics, nor does it impair surface traction
or bonding quality. Concrete only needs to be closed while treating, and can be reopened immediately afterward.
Limitations: DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD contacting glass should be rinsed off without being allowed to dry, since glass can become
etched. DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD may dull the shine on shiny aluminum; however, its integrity is otherwise unaffected. Do not apply DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD to frozen concrete or when ambient
temperature is at 35F and expected to drop shortly.
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
Apply using medium to high-pressure airless paint spray unit, with fan spray tip. Applicate DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD to point of
saturation twice, in back-to-back applications. For example, apply DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD by visually establishing start and finish points, then prior to relocating spray equipment to next area of
application, apply DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD to same area again, using the established start and finish points. To estimate volume of DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD needed, prior to job commencement, use 100 square
feet per gallon, for estimation purposes, since it is usually a close estimate; however, actual DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD volume used may vary, depending on concrete permeability factor, etc. Damp or wet
concrete may be treated by removing all water puddles, if any.
DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD application should begin at lowest point in elevation. For example, walls or steep slopes should be applied
from bottom up; overlapping spray patterns approximately 20 to 30%. Only normal or usual maintenance is required following DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD application
SECTION 6: PRECAUTIONS
- Any coatings that may restrict access to the concrete interior must be chemically or mechanically removed for DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD to
- Protect areas not intended for coverage.
- Do Not allow to DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD puddle or buildup.
- DEEP SEAL with RUST GUARD may etch glass or dull shiny aluminum and can be difficult to remove from other surfaces once it dries.
