Sealing and finishing coating

Product Characteristics
Single-component sealing and finishing paint based on synthetic resins and containing water-repellent components. Meets the requirements of EN 1504-2.

  • supplied in optimum consistence fit for direct application; no additional dilution is needed
  • generated film is permanently water-resistant and resistant to alkaline environment
  • applied by roller, manual coating or spraying using a suitable air-less equipment
  • enhances resistance of surface layers to effects of aggressive media (oils, oil products, inorganic salts, etc.)
  • significantly inhibits effects of carbon dioxide upon surface concrete layers
  • hydrophobes treated surfaces and structures
  • facilitates maintenance of treated floor layers

DENSOCURE R forte is a single-component compound based on synthetic resins, and is used for the surface finishing of cement constructions, and for concrete, during repairs of reinforced concrete structures. It is also employed in laying concrete and the fabrication of new concrete elements and surfaces. Meets the requirements of EN 1504-2, attachment ZA, TP ŘSD Sec. 31 and TP SSBK III.
In addition to this, DENSOCURE R forte finds application in the treatment and finishing of floor structures. Surface finishing of fresh concrete with the paint prevents the mixing water of the concrete from evaporating, thus ensuring proper curing and hardening of the concrete floor surface. It suppresses absorption of water and seals the porous structure of the floor surface. All this contributes to improving considerably the chemical durability of the concrete floor surface and facilitates its maintenance. Very favourable results have also been obtained in surface finishing of non-plastered brickwork, ceramic roof tiles and natural stone carried out in order to provide protection from water and aggressive components of the atmosphere.

Instruction for preparation and application
Base.The base for application of the treatment spray are fresh laid or applied layers of repair materials, concretes and cement mortars and, generally, materials on cement basis. The treated surface shall not be covered by a continuous water film (the surface should be dully dump). Dirt, dust and possible residues of de-striping agents shall be also removed.

Preparation of curing agent. The curing agent is supplied ready for application; no additional dilution is needed.
Neither temperature of the base nor temperature of ambient air shall be below + 5°C and above +35°C.

Applying the coating. DENSOCURE R forte is applied by roller, manual coating or spraying using a
suitable air-less equipment. The coating is usually applied in several layers so that total consumption of the treatment agent amounts to 300 g/m2. If the substrate is absorbent it should be cured by DENSOCURE R forte primer in amount of about 150 g/m2 . Tools and aids shall be cleaned by C 6000 thinner immediately after completion of work.

Specific consumption
Specific consumption of the DENSOCURE R forte coating applied in 2 layers amounts to ca. 0.3 kg/m2 depending on the absorbency and the roughness of the substrate.
