What is Seal-Once Negative Pressure Waterproofer?
Seal-Once Negative Pressure Waterproofer is a silica hydrogel that reacts with the free alkali within the concrete to form a gel that fills the capillaries within the substrate and pushes out harmful chlorides. This hydrogel waterproofs and seals the concrete surface. Seal-Once Negative Pressure Waterproofer is a non-flammable, non-toxic, non-acid sealer that strengthens and waterproofs cementious materials. It reduces and blocks vapor emissions but still leaves the concrete breathable.
What Substrates is Seal-Once Negative Pressure Waterproofer designed for?
- Poured Concrete – Basements
- Concrete Block – Foundations
- Parking Garages – Mortar & Stone
What are the Features offered by Seal-Once Negative Pressure Waterproofer?
- Blocks Moisture Vapor Transfer
- Blocks and reduces vapor emissions through concrete but leaves concrete breathable
- Suitable for above and below grade applications
- Safe for interior and exterior use
- Purges soluble chlorides and prevents their reentry
- Cures and chemically hardens in one operation
- Does not alter bondablity of concrete
- Contains a nonacid penetrating agent
- Resists many acids, oils, greases and salts
- May be used as a curing and sealing agent that reduces the “green concrete” window of 28 days down to an average of 5 days
What Surface Preparation is Needed before applying Seal-Once Negative Pressure Waterproofer?
All surfaces should be cleaned before sealing for best penetration and performance. Clean all dust, debris, and loose material. Remove oil, grease, algae, grime, mold and mildew stains with Seal-Once Concrete and Masonry Cleaner. After cleaning, test absorbency or surface by sprinkling a few drops of water on the surface. If the water does not readily penetrate the surface, stripping will be necessary. We recommend Franmar 605PRO Stripper with Safenol.
How Do You Apply Seal-Once Negative Pressure Waterproofer?
- Shake product well before using. Do not dilute or alter Seal-Once Negative Pressure Waterproofer
- All surfaces being treated must be pre-dampened with a light mist of water.
- Apply Seal-Once Negative Pressure Waterproofer with a low pressure pump sprayer with a fan tip.
- On horizontal surfaces apply in a left to right pattern overlapping 50%. After the first coat soaks in apply a second coat in an up and down pattern overlapping 50%. Avoid over application or ponding.
- Excess unreacted material will leave white crystals on the surface.
- On vertical surfaces apply Seal-Once Negative Pressure Waterproofer from top to bottom to the point of refusal. Apply the sealer in two even coats. After the first coat has soaked in, promptly apply a second coat.
- On horizontal or vertical surfaces, areas that absorb sealer more quickly will require extra coats of Seal-Once Negative Pressure Waterproofer
- On all surfaces after a second coat has soaked in, remove any excess material from surface and spray entire area with a light mist of clean water.
- Keep treated surface dry to cure for a minimum of 12 hours, for applications with high moisture transfer allow surface to cure for 72 hours.
