PENETRATING and ANTI-SPALLING COMPOUND
LIN-SEAL penetrating and anti-spalling compound is a specification-grade formulation of boiled linseed oil in mineral spirits. LIN-SEAL is specifically compounded to prevent the spalling and scaling of concrete. This type of penetrating compound is recommended by many state Departments of Transportation for prolonging the life cycle of concrete exposed to water, de-icing salts and other destructive materials.
LIN-SEAL is ideal for application on Portland cement concrete bridge decks, parking garage decks and ramps, or any concrete surface which allows the concrete to absorb water, salts or other destructive materials. LIN-SEAL may also be applied on wood to seal, protect and extend the life of the protected wood.
5 gallon (18.93 Liter) Pails
55 gallon (208.20 Liter) Drums
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 LIN-SEAL.
Application Method…Apply at temperatures between 40-90° F (4-35° C). New concrete should be cured a minimum of 28 days before application. Apply using an industrial sprayer. A Chapin 1949 sprayer with a 5797 spray tip that produces a flow of ½ gallon (1.89 L) per minute under 40 psi (0.276 MPa) of pressure (or equivalent) is recommended. AVOID PUDDLING in low areas. If puddles occur, brush or roll them out. Annual reapplication may be necessary.
NOTE: Proper application is the responsibility of the user and/or specifier. The user and/or specifier shall determine suitability of a product for a specific application, and assume all related responsibility. Field visits by, or conversations with W. R. MEADOWS personnel or their representatives, are for the purpose of making technical recommendations only and are not to supervise applications or provide quality control on the jobsite.
Coverage…Apply at the rate of approximately 300 ft.²/gal. (7.36 m²/L). A second application at approximately 600 ft.²/gal. (14.73 m²/L) is
recommended for increased protection and spall prevention.
NOTE: Use of fillers, extenders or additives in the concrete mix may result in higher porosity. To achieve proper protection, adjust coverage rates to compensate for the resulting penetration.
Clean up…Use mineral spirits or other suitable petroleum solvent to clean tools and equipment. Materials soaked with linseed oil (rags, paper towels, absorbents, etc.) may spontaneously catch fire if improperly disposed. (See precaution below.)
SHELF LIFE (Typical)
One (1) year in original, unopened container.
IMMEDIATELY AFTER USE, ALL MATERIALS COMING IN CONTACT WITH LIN-SEAL (RAGS, PAPER TOWELS, ABSORBENTS, ETC.) MUST BE PUT INTO A WATER-FILLED CONTAINER, AND THEN THE CONTAINER MUST BE TIGHTLY SEALED.
LIN-SEAL IS FOR EXTERIOR APPLICATION ONLY. DO NOT DILUTE WITH ANY OTHER PRODUCTS OR LIQUIDS.
Do not apply LIN-SEAL if the air temperature or the temperature of the concrete is below 40° F (4° C).
Do not use on colored concrete. Do not use on densely troweled or non-porous surfaces, or where darkening of the concrete is undesirable. Do not use on surfaces that are not uniform in porosity, i.e. brick, stone, masonry, etc. Concrete containing calcium chloride will remain dark longer when treated with LIN-SEAL.
Read and follow application information, precautions and Material Safety Data Sheet information.
