Water-Based, Acrylic, Slip-Resistant Concrete Deck Treatment
DECK-O-GRIP W/B is a non-yellowing, water-based, blended, polymer-based, high solids sealer for decorative concrete. The product is clear, transparent, and easy to apply. DECK-O-GRIP W/B also offers greatly improved chemical resistance when compared to standard acrylic-only based curing and sealing compounds. The product has been formulated to seal and protect decorative coloured concrete by producing a hard, yet flexible, clear film. The compound contains a slip-resistant additive, which produces a slip-resistant surface, for use on traditionally slippery areas. This product is specifically formulated for the residential decorative concrete market.
DECK-O-GRIP W/B is designed for various applications, including exterior concrete surfaces, driveways, patios, swimming pool areas, and exposed aggregate, as well as any exterior surface where protection and sealing of concrete is desired. The use of DECK-O-GRIP W/B on any exterior concrete surface provides a durable, long-lasting finish that has improved resistance to chemicals, oil, grease, de-icing salts and abrasion.
- Provides a totally clear membrane that will not yellow.
- Seals all concrete surfaces, providing a gloss appearance and easier clean up.
- Offers improved slip resistance
- Applies easily.
- May be used on all concrete surfaces, including stamped or stained concrete.
- Provides a clear, tough film, which improves abrasion and stain resistance.
- Offers improved resistance to rain, sun, freezing temperatures, most acids and industrial chemicals, oil, grease, de-icing salts, cleaning agents (except aromatic solvents), caustics, airborne soot, dust, and other pollutants.
- Seals and enhances the beauty of many concrete surfaces for years.
- Can be recoated after thorough surface cleaning to restore original beauty.
18.93 Litre (5 Gal.) Pails
7.37 – 14.73 m2/L (300 – 600 ft.2/gal.). 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 4° – 32° C, optimum performance and best use is obtained within one year of date of manufacture.
- Complies with Canada VOC Concentration Limits for Architectural Coatings Regulations
Mixing … For optimum performance, gentle mixing or agitation is recommended. CAUTION: DO NOT MIX EXCESSIVELY.
Existing Concrete … Concrete surface must be clean and dry with all chemical form agents, stains, oil, grease, dust and dirt removed prior to application.
New Stamped Concrete (At Least 72 Hours [Three Days] Old) … Surface must be clean and free from all powdered release agent residue. CAUTION: If a liquid compound other than W. R. MEADOWS CS-309™ series or VOCOMP® series products have been used, do not apply DECK-O-GRIP W/B until all traces of the compound have been completely removed and the surface is clean and dry.
Application Method … MIX THOROUGHLY PRIOR TO USING. A typical commercial sprayer provides an easy, economical method of application.
DECK-O-GRIP W/B should be sprayed with a 1949 sprayer and 0.379 LPM (0.1 GPM) nozzle. Spray on in a fine, fog pattern, without spurts or dribbles, to form a thin, continuous film. AVOID PUDDLING in low areas. If puddles occur, brush or roll them out. For added protection and a greater sheen on concrete, two coats of DECK-O-GRIP W/B applied at right angles is recommended. Additional coats may be applied after the first coat has thoroughly dried.
Drying Time … DECK-O-GRIP W/B dries quickly. Drying times may be extended depending on application rate, temperature, humidity, and project conditions. Restrict foot traffic for at least six hours. Twelve hours is preferred.
Clean Up … While DECK-O-GRIP W/B is still wet, equipment may be cleaned with soap and water. Once dried, the material may be removed with a solvent, such as xylene or toluene.
KEEP FROM FREEZING. Do not dilute. Do not apply when air, material, and surface temperatures are expected to fall below 4° C within four hours of completed application. DO NOT MIX WATER-BASED COMPOUNDS WITH ANY COMPOUND CONTAINING SOLVENT.
DECK-O-GRIP W/B is designed for coloured concrete, but mottling may occur. Surfaces that have been acid-stained or acid-washed must be neutralized to a pH of seven. Do not use on dense or non-porous surfaces. For other specifications, secure the approval of the paint or resilient flooring manufacturer before applying product. Improper application of a sealer may prevent the film from adhering properly. Poor adhesion and/or entrapped moisture may cause the film to peel and/or turn white (blush). The specifier and user shall determine the suitability and assume all responsibilities therewith.
