FAP CURE RB is a low viscosity, resin emulsion, curing compound. It is supplied as a single component liquid, which is ready for immediate on-site application. The system forms a continuous non-penetrating film on cementitious surfaces preventing excessive water e evaporation leading to more efficient cement hydration thereby reducing shrinkage and increasing durability. FAP CURE RB is applied by spray to fresh cementitious surfaces at a coverage rate of 4.0 to 5.0 m² per litre.
FAP CURE RB should be gently stirred immediately before use, application should not begin until the concrete is free from surface water, and should not commence at all if bleed water is apparent on the concrete surface.
FAP CURE RB should be applied as evenly as possible to the freshly placed concrete. Hold the nozzle of the spray approx. 500mm from the concrete surface and pass back and forth ensuring complete coverage. Maintain the pump pressure at a sufficient level to produce a fine spray. When first applied, the product forms a non-penetrating white coating across the concrete surface. The coating cures to form a white or clear film - which then provides the moisture barrier to enable effective, concrete curing. The applied film should not be trafficked until fully dry, and care should be taken to ensure that the film is not broken.
FAP CURE RB may also be applied to newly hardened concrete immediately after demoulding, which should be damp, not dry. Surfaces, which are dry, will lead to problematic absorption of the membrane, preventing proper film formation and causing removal difficulties at a later date date.
As with all chemical products, caution should always be exercised. Protective clothing, Such as gloves and goggle, should be worn. Should any of the products be accidentally swallowed, do not induce vomit but call for medical assistance immediately. Ensure the container is available for the medical attendant to examine any relevant instructions and contents details. Reseal all containers after use and ensure product is stored as instructed on the safety section of the labeling.
