LIN-SEAL EMULSION sealing compound is a true water-based, high solids solution of boiled linseed oil. LIN-SEAL EMULSION is a liquid membrane seal for freshly placed concrete that helps retain original moisture to aid cement hydration and assist in the development of high early and ultimate strengths. LIN-SEAL EMULSION is a single application penetrating sealer that protects existing concrete from the effects of deicing chemicals. It also prevents map cracking, checking, spalling, and scaling.
LIN-SEAL EMULSION appears milky white in the container and when first applied, providing visual identification of covered area. Once applied and dried, it forms a clear transparent film, which provides a premium-grade seal for optimum water retention.
LIN-SEAL EMULSION sealing compound is ideal for use on bridge decks, parking garage decks, ramps, or any other concrete surface exposed to water, deicing salts, or other destructive substances. LIN-SEAL EMULSION increases the durability of concrete to prolong its life.
- Increases durability to extend the useful life of concrete.
- True water-based compound.
- Ready to use.
- Aids in moisture retention.
- Use conventional commercial spraying equipment for quick, easy application.
- Prevents scaling and spalling.
- Adherence of subsequent paint applications is not affected.
5 Gallon (18.93 Liter) Pails
55 Gallon (208.20 Liter) Drums
Approximately 200 ft.²/gal. (4.91 m²/L). Coverage may vary due to porosity and condition of the concrete.
When stored indoors in original, unopened containers at temperatures between 40° – 90° F (4° – 32° C), optimum performance and best use is obtained within one year of date of manufacture.
AASHTO M 148 Type 1, Class A & B*
ASTM C 309 Type 1, Class A & B*
*With exemptions for drying time
Boiled Linseed Oil: ASTM D 260
Complies with U.S. EPA, LADCO, and OTC maximum allowable VOC requirements.
Fed. Spec. A-A-371
Numerous State D.O.T. Specifications
Surface Preparation … Surfaces to be sealed must be clean and dry. Remove all dirt, oil, grease, curing compounds, and other substances that would prevent the proper penetration of the sealer. Application equipment must be clean and free of any previously used materials.
Mixing … For optimum performance, gentle mixing or agitation is recommended.
DO NOT MIX EXCESSIVELY.
Application Method … LIN-SEAL EMULSION may be applied as soon as the free water disappears from the surface. Apply only in a temperature range of 40º F – 95º F (4º C – 35º C). Apply with conventional hand or power spray equipment. The product may also be applied with paving train equipment. Broom off puddles or any excess liquid. Old concrete should be treated annually.
Apply at a rate of approximately 300 ft.2/gal. (7.36 m2/L). A second application at approximately 600 ft.2/gal. (14.7 m2/L) is recommended for increased protection and spall prevention.
Cleanup … Use soap and water to clean tools and equipment.
DO NOT DILUTE. Do not store or apply at temperatures less than 40˚ F (4˚ C). Do not use on densely troweled surfaces or on surfaces where darkening of the concrete is undesirable. Do not mix water-based compounds with any compound containing solvent. LIN-SEAL EMULSION is intended for exterior use only in concrete exposed to deicing salts and chemicals. KEEP FROM FREEZING.
Drying of products containing linseed oil result in the generation of heat, which may result in the ignition of combustible materials such as rags, paper towels, etc.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Materials soaked with linseed oil (rags, absorbents, etc.) may spontaneously catch fire if improperly discarded. Immediately after use, all materials coming in contact with this product should be placed in sealed, water-filled containers. Refer to Material Safety Data Sheet for complete health and safety information.
