Concrete Curing Agent, Hardener, and Dustproofer
MED-CURE is a ready-to-use, water-based, VOC-compliant concrete curing agent, hardener, and dustproofer. It is residue-free and contains no wax, resin, or other materials that would inhibit the bond of subsequent coatings and/or treatments over substrate treated with MED-CURE.
MED-CURE is ideal as a curing aid as well as for hardening and dustproofing exposed concrete floor slabs, sidewalks, driveways, beams, columns, etc. It can be used to provide a dust-free surface on concrete floors to be painted or covered by resilient, carpeted, wood, or synthetic flooring.
- Meets the moisture retention requirement of ASTM C309 on hard trowel concrete.
- Penetrates to aid curing, as well as to harden concrete, in one easy application.
- Minimizes hair checking, thermal cracking, dusting, and other defects.
- Provides a low-maintenance, finished surface.
- Tinted product available which aids in identifying coverage.
- Ideal for new, old, interior, exterior, horizontal, and vertical concrete surfaces.
- Dries fast and may be recoated if desired.
- Application tools may be cleaned with water.
- Does not prevent the adhesion of subsequent coatings, treatments, or flooring material.

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 (4° – 32° C), optimum performance and best use is obtained within one year of date of manufacture.
- Complies with all current federal, state, and local maximum allowable VOC requirements, including National AIM, LADCO, OTC Phase I and II, CARB, and SCAQMD.
- Treated surface is USDA accepted.
- Meets the moisture retention requirement of ASTM C309 on densely-trowel concrete.
VOC Content: 0 g/L
Fresh (New) Concrete … Apply as soon as all surface water has disappeared and the concrete surface will not be marred by walking workers.
Existing (Old) Concrete: … Concrete surface must be clean and dry with all stains, oil, grease, dust, and dirt removed prior toapplication.
Application Method … Use a sprayer or short-nap roller to apply a uniform film. Avoid puddling in low areas. If puddles occur, brush or roll them out. A standard industrial-grade sprayer, such as a Chapin 1949, and a spray nozzle that produces a flow of 0.1 GPM (0.379 LPM) under 40 psi of pressure, is recommended.
Mixing … For optimum performance, gentle mixing or agitation is recommended.
Drying Time … MED-CURE dries in approximately one hour. Drying times may vary depending on application rate, temperature, humidity, wind, and project conditions.
Cleanup … Application equipment may be cleaned easily with soap and water while still wet.
DO NOT DILUTE. Do not apply if the temperature of the concrete is less than 40º F (4.4° C). KEEP FROM FREEZING. If MED-CURE is accidentally sprayed or spilled on glass, brick, aluminum, painted surfaces, etc., flush immediately with water. Do not over-apply. Over-application or puddling of MED-CURE on the surface may lead to white crystals forming on the surface which are difficult to remove. Mechanical abrasion is the only effective manner to remove crystals.
