AP678 Conseal 50
Actichem’s AP678 Conseal 50 is a 50% active silane sealer formulated to provide premium protection to cementicous construction materials, engineering concrete, masonry surfaces, and cement pavers. It employs high performance impregnators which chemically react with the cementicous material to create a powerfully repellent substrate, protecting against water-borne contaminants, acid rain, organic staining and salt attack.
Conseal 50 is a clear, penetrating, breathable, VOC compliant surface treatment for use on concrete. The unique 50% silane blend is formulated to provide ultimate protection to horizontal surfaces. The high performance carrier and wetting agents quickly carry the silane deep into the substrate where the silane chemically bonds with minerals to form a permanent attachment of the water repellent molecule. This deep hydrophobic layer prevents water and water borne contaminants from entering the substrate and causing premature deterioration.
By combining low surface tension with a tailored rate of reaction, Conseal 50 is able to spread through the moisture boundary layer that lines the pore structure of the substrate. This allows for perfectly uniform protection throughout the hydrophobic layer giving the benefit of longer treatment life especially on wearing surfaces.
Conseal 50 is ideally suited to horizontal applications. Where there are vertical surfaces involved it is recommended that Conseal 100 is used.
Conseal 50 & Conseal 100 can be used to protect cast-in-place, precast, GFRC and high-strength concrete, to protect the reinforcing steel from corrosion due to the effects of water, salts and water borne contaminants.
For use on bridge and road decks where fast drying is required to minimize disruption to traffic.
For treating heavy traffic wearing surfaces, runways or areas that receive high salt attack (piers, wharves, coastal buildings)
Not to be used as a sub-terrain waterproofing. Should not be applied if temperature is above 40 degrees or if rain is expected within 2 hours of application. If rain has preceded the application, the surface should be allowed 24 hours to dry completely.
Conseal 50 will provide premium protection for up to 15 years and in many applications, several years longer. However application methods, weather conditions, traffic, harsh cleaning methods and substrate type will affect wear. Avoid use of solvents, strong acids and strong alkalis for extended sealer life.
It is recommended that the sealer be re-applied every 8 – 12 years where harsh conditions exist.
