Surface Cure R-30 is a liquid applied curing compound which consists of a processed blend of petroleum and resin-based hydrocarbons. When applied at the recommended application rate Surface Cure R-30 minimizes moisture loss in freshly laid concrete thus improving the curing of the concrete providing increased strength and durability and improved resistance to surface dusting. Surface Cure R-30 is also available in pigmented variants of white (Type 2- Class B) & black (Type 3- Class B).
Surface Cure R-30 is mainly used on freshly laid concrete floors, hardstand areas, warehouses, bridge ramparts etc. Also used for curing vertical concrete areas immediately after the stripping of forms to assist strength development, improve chemical resistance, etc.
- Hydrocarbon Resin – Water Based – Type 1 D Class Z
- Utilises low VOC formula
- Reduces surface shrinkage and cracking
- Odourless when dry
- Economical, ease of application reduces labour cost
- Eliminates the need for damp hessian, sand or polythene
- Enables concrete to hydrate more efficiently
- Increases concrete strength and dusting resistance
- Rapid film formation time
- Water-resistant film formed
Surface Cure R-30 should be evenly sprayed over the freshly laid concrete as soon as possible after trowelling. Ideally, Surface Cure R-30 should be applied as soon as the surface bleed water has evaporated.
Certain adhesives for vinyl tiles or other types of resilient flooring and paints of an approved grade may be applied to concrete coated with Surface Cure R-30. It is important however that the concrete should be thoroughly cured prior to such application and that a test area has been completed for approval. Cement-based renders and toppings should not be applied over Surface Cure R-30.
Surface Cure R-30 should be removed from tools and equipment with water if still wet and Solvent 100 or StripSeal if the dry film has formed.
