WATER-BASED, WAX-BASED CONCRETE CURING COMPOUND
The 1600-WHITE series of water-based, white-pigmented concrete curing compounds are wax-based dispersions with selected white pigments. When properly applied, 1600-WHITE forms a premium-grade membrane, which optimizes water retention. The white pigment reflects the sun’s rays to help keep the concrete surface cooler and prevent excessive heat buildup.
1600-WHITE is ideal for application on exterior, horizontal surfaces, such as highways, airports, and street and curb paving. 1600-WHITE is not recommended for residential applications. The product provides optimum curing when protection from the sun’s heat is desired.
Drying Time: Typically dries in two hours, depending on jobsite conditions (temperature, wind, etc.). Restrict foot traffic for at least four hours.
Flash Point: >212º F (100º C).
May help contribute to LEED credits:
Approximately 200 ft.²/gal. (4.91 m²/L).
Coverage rates may have to be adjusted in windy conditions.
5 Gallon (18.93 L) Pails
55 Gallon (208.20 L) Drums
Preparation … Application equipment must be clean and free of any previously used materials.
Mixing … Any settling or separation in the container must be re-dispersed with gentle agitation prior to use. CAUTION: TO AVOID FOAMING, DO NOT MIX EXCESSIVELY. DO NOT THIN.
Application Method … Spray on in one even coat with a hand or power sprayer as soon as the surface water disappears from concrete surface. Use a Chapin 5797 (or equivalent) spray nozzle that produces a flow of 1/2 gal. (1.89 L) per minute under 40 psi (.276 MPa) of pressure.
Cleanup … Prior to drying, equipment may be easily cleaned with soap and water. Once dried, use mineral spirits or other suitable petroleum solvent.
KEEP FROM FREEZING. Do not apply when the temperature of the air and/or the concrete is less than 40º F (4º C). DO NOT MIX OR DILUTE WITH ANY OTHER PRODUCTS OR LIQUIDS. Do not use on surfaces that are later to be painted, tiled, hardened, sealed or treated in any manner. Do not use on patios, sidewalks or other areas where there is typically no wheel traffic to abrade the white film surface. Not recommended for use on residential applications.
