Rough or Broom Finished Concrete: 250-350 square feet per gallon
Smooth, Stamped, or Troweled Concrete: 300-400 square feet per gallon
*Coverage rates listed above are rates that you should attempt to achieve, not what you necessarily will achieve. Also, when applying a second coat or if the concrete has been sealed previously, coverage rates may be extended slightly.
Penetrating Crete Seal 25 is a sprayable non-yellowing pure acrylic concrete sealer designed for decorative concrete such as stamped, overlays, acid stained and exposed aggregate surfaces, as well as brushed or trowel finished concrete surfaces. Low in viscosity, Penetrating Crete Seal 25 penetrates deep into the pores of the concrete for possibly the best protection available.
Combustible liquid (Flash point 108 degrees F). Keep away from open flame and heat. Do not smoke. Avoid direct contact. Skin and eye irritation may occur. Use in well-ventilated area. Inhalation of vapors may cause breathing difficulties. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Strongly recommended for exterior use only. First aid is as follows:
Eye contact: Move victim from exposure source. Flush eyes with water for 10-15 minutes.
Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash with soap and water. If irritation persists seek medical attention.
Inhalation: Move victim to fresh air immediately. Contact physician if breathing is difficult.
SURFACE PREPARTAION: Concrete surface must be clean and free of all contaminants and water. Do not apply if rain is forecast within 24 hours. If moisture is present or if the surface is not clean and free of all contaminants, the sealer may have white spots and have premature delamination and failure.
Substrate temperature must be no less than 40 degrees F and not exceed 80 degrees F. If applied outside these limits the sealer may not achieve adequate film formation and may have excessive air entrapment, bubbles, blushing or hazing.
MIXING: Stir well before using. Material may separate during long term storage.
APPLICATION: Apply using a 3/8" - 1/2" nap roller cover using long even uniform strokes at approximately 250-400 square feet per gallon depending on porosity and texture of substrate. A Chapin style solvent resistant sprayer may be used as well. Do not allow to Puddle! Thick or puddle areas may prevent the solvent from evaporating and may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which may cause milky white spots. Applying too thin may cause sealer to prematurely delaminate, flake or wear away. Allow sealer to dry for 24 hours for light traffic and at least 48 hours for heavy traffic. If applying two coats, wait approximately 4 - 6 hours between coats.
A two coat application is recommended for concrete surfaces that have previously been unsealed. In rare occasions, a third coat may be necessary to provide a uniform finish to porous or uneven surfaces. For previously sealed concrete surfaces, a single coat should be sufficient in most cases.
PLEASE NOTE: It is always recommended to test the product in a small, inconspicuous area (on the same concrete substrate) for desired results prior to application. Coverage rates may vary for all coatings and substrates depending on porosity, density, texture etc. If applying by spray method, extended coverage rates may be achieved, but be aware that less material will be applied and inadequate film formation or performance expectations may be limited.
