CURECON A acrylic water-based curing compound is a Class D, Type 1 curing compound for use on new concrete that facilitates maximum moisture retention through the curing period to maximize concrete strength & durability.
CURECON A, when applied by the correct method and at the recommended application rate, leaves a dried film, which is not particularly obvious. This film has minimal darkening on exposure to sunlight. CURECON A is based on an acrylic resin combined with other additives.
- Compatible with most after trades
- Environmentally acceptable
- No ventilation requirement
- No stringent safety requirements
- Efficient curing of the concrete assists the development of strength, abrasion resistance, and durability
- Reduces the likelihood of cracking or dusting at the surface
- Easy to use, eliminates messy water curing or polythene film
- Low odour
The coating should be applied at a coverage rate of 5m2/litre. To achieve the correct curing properties and moisture retention according to AS/RTA standards, Curecon A must be applied at the above-stated coverage rates. Curecon A does not contain a fugitive dye so care must be taken to ensure a uniform application is achieved. Curecon A dries as a clear film on the surface
|Flash Point||Not Applicable|
|Drying Time||Approximately 1½ -2hours at 25°C|
After this time the CURECON A will be shower resistant and will resist re-emulsification and consequential removal
|Coverage||5m2/L (0.2litres/m2) using a spray applicator – do not brush|
|Application Equipment||Low-pressure spray (preferred) or soft 10-15mm nap roller.|
|Thinning||Nil – use as supplied|
|Clean Up||Water when wet. Xylene, or Solvent 525 (allows re-emulsification with water) when dry.|
Mix prior to use. Ensure CURECON A is homogeneous. Curecon A should be evenly sprayed onto the surface over the freshly laid concrete as soon as possible after final trowelling. Ideally, Curecon A should be applied as soon as the surface bleed water has evaporated. In all cases, Curecon A should be applied at a coverage rate not greater than 5m2 per litre.
Note: CURECON A does not contain fugitive dye. Care should be taken to ensure CURECON A is applied in an even film over the entire surface area of the concrete.
