Features and benefits

Acrylic based concrete curing compound used to prevent rapid evaporation of water from fresh concrete ensuring uniform hydration, adequate strength development.

Properties

Description

POLYBIT® POLYCURE AC is suitable for use on all concrete surfaces and acts as a more effective and economical alternative to separate curing, priming systems; in high rise construction where continuous wet curing is not possible; in areas subjected to high drying winds which require continuous curing; surfaces, which requires subsequent finishes. Available pack size: 20L drum, 200L drum.

How to use

Surface Preparation

Mix the contents of the drum thoroughly prior to the application in order to remove the sediments. It is recommended that the curing compound is applied immediately after the initial bleed water evaporates and the concrete has achieved its initial set. In case of deshuttering, the concrete surface is wetted with water but not with free standing water, before the curing compound is applied. The application can be done by a brush, roller or an airless spray at a coverage rate of 5m²/L. For highly porous surfaces, a second coat has to be applied at the same coverage rate.

Application

Polycure AC acts as a primer and bonding agents for the following systems:
– water based emulsion paint systems containing PVA,PVC, and acrylic co-polymers
– tile adhesives based on the above polymers
– bitumen based emulsions or solutions
– cementitious systems
Note:
– concrete curing compound will effectively prevent evaporation of water from concrete, provided it is not puctured or damaged, but will not allow the ingress of water to replenish that is lost by self desiccation.
– where water curing is inconvenient or potable water for curing is not available, sealing fresh concrete surface with curing compound is the best alternate curing method. 

Finishing

Store in a cool, dry place and keep away from all sources of heat and sunlight. In tropical climates, store in air condition rooms. The shelf life is up to 12 months in unopened conditions and if stored as per recommendations. Excessive exposure to sunlight, humidity and UV will result in the deterioration of the quality of the product and reduce
its shelf life.
