DESCRIPTION: Concrete Solvent Seal is a formulation of a 25% modified
copolymers in a blended solvent package.
Concrete Solvent Seal is a clear sealer that will not
yellow under the exposure to direct sunlight. It has several proposed uses such as, but not
limited to brick, stone, exposed aggregate, pre-cast concrete, cast-in-place concrete,
architecturally colored concrete and stucco. Because of the high solids content of Solvent
Seal, it provides a UV light resistance and long lasting, attractive, concrete surface.
Note:
Concrete Solvent Seal also comes in other solids content to accommodate the desired
proposed use.

PURPOSE:
Concrete Solvent Seal is formulated to dustproof and provide an in depth beauty to new and old concrete, masonry, and other cementitious materials. Solvent Seal protects the applied surface of the concrete from rain and other airborne contaminants.

Concrete Solvent Seal protects many types of surfaces:
Exposed Aggregate
• Masonry
• Block
• Stucco
• Cast-in-place concrete
• Pre-cast or Pre-stressed concrete
• Limestone or Sandstone
• Many types of Architectural Concrete (eg, Integral, Dry-Shake Color Hardener,
Chemically Stained concrete or cementitious overlayments.


ADVANTAGES:
• Protects against rain
• Gloss and non-gloss available
• Non-yellowing
• Excellent adhesion
• Contaminant protection
• Resist mildew and surface staining

APPLICATION PROCEDURES: Prior to applying 
Concrete Solvent Seal, the
surface must be clean, dry, and free of grease, dirt, paint, and or efflorescence. To remove
dirt and other contaminants, consult Monster Constructors for removal techniques. Improper
cleaning tools can and will cause surface defects in the concrete that will be highlighted
when the product is applied. These imperfections in the surface will cause an undesirable
end result. Another method is by the use of a high pressure cold water wash using a
pressure of approx.1000 psi (6.9MPa). If the substrate is wet from the rain or from
cleaning, wait a minimum of 48 hours for the surface to adequately dry before general
application of the product commences. Protect structures and adjacent areas from overspray
as mis-application can cause damage to surfaces that are not intended to be coated.
For best results apply Solvent Seal with an airless power driven sprayer, or use a 3/8 inch
nap roller for broom finish, rock salt, or sand blasted surfaces, making sure a solvent
resistant core is used. Start each area at the top edge and proceed down to the base
without interruption to prevent streaking and or holidays in the applied spray pattern.
Hold sprayer nozzle perpendicular to the surface and overlap each coat in order to reduce
loss of material through evaporation. Avoid back spray, and use a tip, which atomizes
Solvent Seal to a fine mist (approx. #15 tip) Coverage will depend on the density,
porosity, and texture of the surface.

APPROXIMATE COVERAGE RATES:
• Exposed Aggregate – 200-300 sq.ft. /gallon
• Brick – 200-300 sq.ft. /gallon
• Stucco – 150-200 sq.ft. /gallon
• Concrete Block – 50-100 sq.ft. /gallon
• Cast-in-place concrete – 200-250 sq.ft. /gallon
• Limestone / Sandstone – 150-250 sq.ft. /gallon
• Color Hardened Concrete – 250-300 sq.ft.
• Integral Colored Admixture – 300 – 400 sq.ft./gallon


Two coats of
Concrete Solvent Seal are suggested. Apply second coat at a rate of approx. 300 sq.ft./ gallon. Note: Allow the first coat to dry before applying the second coat. ( approx. 2-4
hours, depending on ambient temperatures)

DRY TIME: Providing the ambient temperatures are at approx.70 degrees Fahrenheit
the cure time is approx. 2-4 hours. Do Not apply product in temperatures that will fall
below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Cloudy, cool, and damp moisture filled days are not
condusive to successful applications. Complete cure time for Solvent Seal is 72 hours at
70 degrees Fahrenheit.

CLEAN UP:
For tools and equipment used in the application process, use Xylene or 100 Aromatic
Solvent.


LIMITATIONS:
Concrete Solvent Seal is not intended for areas subject to abrasion, such as bridge decks and
roadways. Do Not use
Concrete Solvent Seal on bituminous surfaces, as staining will result.
Concrete Solvent Seal will interfere with the adhesion of some joint sealants. Apply on concrete that is a minimum of 14 days old.( will only apply to late spring or early summer time).
All other application procedures are strongly urged to allow the concrete to cure a
minimum of 21-28 days as published by the American Concrete Institute. Failure to
follow these instructions will cause concrete to trap moisture and become whitish in
appearance, and surface inconsistencies that will not allow regular and/or architectural
concrete to exhibit its correct desired affect.

WARNING:
Concrete Solvent Seal is a flammable mixture containing a blended solvent package. Prior to
using, make sure adequate ventilation is acquired. Solvent Seal can cause irritation to the
skin and eyes. Please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheets and Technical Bulletins
before application of this product
