CONSEAL DRY

Conseal Dry is a two-part, low solvent, epoxy primer that has been developed for application to cured concrete floors, tanks and structures where it will provide excellent adhesion together with good porosity and pin hole sealing properties. 

Typical Uses: As a primer for concrete, masonry and other non metallic substrates to ensure excellent adhesion for subsequent coatings.

Shelf life and Storage: 12-18 months in original, unopened container. Store in cool and dry conditions 

Preparation:  Substrates must be thoroughly prepared by mechanical or chemical cleaning to achieve a clean sound surface for application of CONSEAL DRY. It is essential that all oil, grease and other contaminants are removed. Epoxy coatings should not be applied below 6°C as very low temperatures will prevent full cure.

Mixing: Conseal Dry resin should be pre-mixed in the tin before the hardener is added. Add all of the hardener to the tin of resin and mix thoroughly with an electric mixer. Transfer all of the contents into a clean bucket and mix for another 2-3 minutes. When mixed, the resin and hardener will start to react, generating heat which will accelerate the reaction. The greater the mass of epoxy, the more heat will be generated and the shorter the pot life. To prolong pot life pour the resin into shallow trays or onto the floor. If you require a smaller quantity or are unable to use all of the material within its pot life, weigh out resin and hardener in the proportions specified on the label using digital scales.

Application: Apply liberally by brush, roller or spray. Any porous areas of old concrete must be fully saturated to prevent any air bubbles affecting the finish of subsequent coatings. The coverage of CONSEAL DRY will vary depending on the porosity of the concrete.

Over-coating: Can be overcoated as soon as it is touch dry as shown in the table overleaf according to the ambient temperature. If it is allowed to cure beyond the maximum over-coating time, glossy areas must be abraded before any further coatings are applied. If floor coverings such as vinyl tiles are to be laid it is advisable to apply two thin coats of Conseal Dry. 

Advantages

  • Easy to use and fast to apply
  • Quick cure allows fast over- coating and finishing of floors
  • Excellent adhesion to cured concrete and most non metallic substrates
  • Provides superior adhesion for finishing systems.
  • Economical.
