Water-Based, Wax-Based Concrete Curing Compound
1610-WHITE water-based, wax-based concrete curing compound, when properly applied, provides a premium-grade film, which optimizes water retention. The white pigment reflects the sun’s rays to help keep the concrete surface cooler and to prevent excessive heat buildup.
1610-WHITE is ideal for application on exterior, horizontal surfaces, such as highways, airports and street and curb paving. The product provides excellent curing properties when protection from the sun’s heat is desired.
- When properly applied, provides a premium-grade film, which optimizes water retention.
- Protects by reflecting the sun’s rays to keep the concrete surface cooler and prevent excessive heat buildup, which can cause thermal cracking.
- Furnished as a ready-to-use, true water-based compound.
- Produces hard, dense concrete … minimizes hair-checking, thermal cracking, dusting, and other defects.
- Offers a compressive strength significantly greater than improperly cured or uncured concrete.
- Improves tensile strength for greater resistance to cracking and surface crazing.
- Minimizes shrinkage.
- Applies quickly and easily with conventional commercial spray equipment.
- VOC compliant.
5 Gallon (18.9 L) Pails
55 Gallon (208.2 L) Drums
275 Gallon (1041 L) Totes
Approximately 200 ft.2/gal. (4.91 m²/L). Coverage is approximate and may vary depending on surface finish/texture, concrete condition, climatic conditions, etc. Always apply to a test area first to determine actual coverage rate before full-scale application.
When stored indoors in original, unopened containers at temperatures between 40° – 90° F, optimum performance and best use is obtained within one year of date of manufacture.

VOC Content: 55 g/L
Mixing … Any settlement can be re-dispersed with gentle agitation prior to use. CAUTION: TO AVOID FOAMING, DO NOT MIX EXCESSIVELY.
Application Method … Application equipment must be clean and free of any previously used materials. Spray on in one even coat with a hand or power sprayer as soon as the surface water disappears from horizontal concrete surfaces. Use a sprayer, such as Chapin 1949, and a spray nozzle that produces a flow of 0.5 GPM under 40 psi of pressure. Do not allow spray nozzle to drip.
Drying Time … Approximately two hours. Restrict foot traffic for at least four hours.
Cleanup … Prior to drying, equipment may be easily cleaned with soap and water. Once dried, use mineral spirits or other suitable petroleum distillate.
KEEP FROM FREEZING. Do not apply when the temperature of the concrete is less than 40º F (4.4° C). DO NOT MIX WITH COMPOUNDS CONTAINING SOLVENT. DO NOT ADD OR DILUTE WITH ANY OTHER COMPOUND. 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 driveways.
