DCI Water Based Concrete Sealer is an acrylic cure and seal sealer designed to provide a satin gloss shine for any exterior or interior concrete surface. As a low odor product, it is the preferred for indoor floor applications, especially basements and occupied homes or businesses. One or two coats can be applied to indoor floors depending on the desired gloss level. When used as a primer for concrete countertops, DCI Water Based Concrete Sealer should not be applied to surfaces polished to 400-grit or above.
Coverage: 200-400 square feet per gallon. Coverage rates depend on the surface conditions and concrete porosity. Two thin coats are recommended for outdoor concrete.
DO NOT apply water based concrete sealers when surface temperatures are below 60°F with an air temperature difference of 5 degrees or less. Central heating, radiant or convection heaters, or similar heating devices should be turned off during application. In-floor heating should be set at 60-65 degrees before and turned off during the application process. Do not allow to freeze.
Application: Apply DCI Water Based Concrete Sealer using a 3/8″ in. nap roller, Floor Trim Pad, Floor Coater, HPLV sprayer or pump-up sprayer. If applying with a pump-up sprayer, backroll with a 3/8 in. or less nap roller for even coats. For best results with an applicator, soak the applicator in warm water and shake out the access before beginning the application. Apply thin coats of sealer. Depending on weather conditions, allow up to 24 hours drying time between coats. The sealer will appear milky when first applied but will clear as it dries. Sealers applied with an applicator should be “pushed on” only. Pulling back with the applicator will result in unattractive sealer streaks that often require stripping to correct. Do not apply a second coat of sealer in areas where the sealer has remained white or is tacky to the touch. Keep in mind that not all concrete slabs are completely level or smooth which can cause sealer to pool or appear dull in spots if the troweled finish is uneven. Thick coats will result in an inconsistent finish with tacky areas that may not set-up correctly. Allow for 24 hours dwell time after the final coat before permitting vehicle or heavy foot traffic. Do not walk on wet sealer; it will leave permanent impressions on your surface. Floor wax can be applied to interior floors after 48 hours. Water-based concrete sealer and wax products should be stored at room temperature at all times. Applicators and tools clean up easily with soap and water.
