Setseal 44 is used mainly for newly cast concrete and cementitious surfaces to retain sufficient moisture to ensure full hydration of the cement.
Typical application areas include:
Setseal 44 is available in 5 gal (18.9 liter) pails, 55 gal (208.2 liter) drums and 275 gal (1041 liter) totes.
The recommended coverage rate is 185 ft² per gal (4.5 m²/litre).
Store in a dry area out of direct sunlight between 41°F and 95°F (5°C and 35°C).
Setseal 44 has a shelf life of 12 months from date of manufacture for the clear colour, and 9 months for the pigmented colour, if stored in proper conditions in unopened drums.
Setseal 44 should be spray, roll or brush applied as soon as possible to the fresh concrete, provided the surface water has evaporated.
Do not apply if bleed water is forming, or is present on the concrete surface. Stir Setseal 44 well before use to ensure even pigment dispersion. Setseal 44 can be spray applied, and the spray nozzle should be held approximately 18” (457 mm) from the concrete surface and passed back and forth to ensure complete coverage. Pump pressure should be maintained to give an even, fine spray.
Pump pressure should be maintained to give an even, fine spray. The applied film should be protected from rain for at least 3 hours; care should be taken to ensure that the film is not broken.
In the case of formed concrete, Setseal 44 should be applied immediately after de-shuttering. In such a case, the concrete surface must be dampened with clean water prior application of Setseal 44.
Dry surfaces may prevent correct film formation and cause absorption of the Setseal 44 into the concrete surface, which may lead to staining and difficulty in later degradation and removal.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Setseal 44 is not classified as a hazardous material. In case of accidental splashes to the eyes, immediately flush with plenty of water and seek medical attention. Suitable protective gloves and goggles should be worn.
