REACTIVE CURING COMPOUND AND WATER REPELLENT
Repel Cure is the next generation of Cure & Seal. It's dual functioning design allows it to combine both the moisture retention properties of a curing compound with the protection of a penetrating sealer. Unlike traditional acrylic cure and Seals, Repel-Cure does not form a heavy resinous film on the surface. Repel-Cure also offers superior water and salt resistance.
Repel-Cure slows evaporation at the surface of freshly placed concrete surfaces, allowing the concrete to properly cure. The penetrating water-repellent then continues to protect the concrete from water, salt and ice, during and after construction. Repel Cure does not change the color of the concrete and meets ASTM C-309 specifications for Cure & Seals.
Repel-Cure is specifically designed for exterior broom-swept concrete applications such as driveways, patios, sidewalks, pool decks and most other new concrete surfaces where water and salt damage resistance is required.

Cleaning and Preparation Instructions
Cover or mask all areas not to be sealed. Repel Cure may etch surfaces such as glass, steel etc. Concrete surface must be unsealed, as well as clean and free of all contaminants and water. Do not apply if rain is forecast within 24 hours. If the surface is not clean and free of all contaminants, the sealer may have adhesion and reaction issues. On fresh concrete the bleed water must off the surface. Bleed water can inhibit the functions of Repel Cure.
Repel Cure may be applied using a roller or industrial concrete sprayer. Use a medium nap roller for textured surfaces and a short nap roller for smooth surfaces. Do not allow to Puddle! Thick or puddled areas should be spread to areas where absorption can continue. Failure to quickly remove puddle areas may result in the presence of dry residual sealer that may yield an undesirable aesthetic look, especially on colored or dark concrete. For best results, apply a second coat 3 days after application of the first coat, or prior to subjecting the surface to traffic. This will ensure maximum protection from water, salts and other contaminants.
Make sure all sprinklers are turned off for a 24 hour period of time. Apply Repel Cure only if rain is not expected for at least 24 hours. Do not apply Repel Cure if surface temperature is below 50° F., or above 80° F.
CLEAN UP: Clean up tools with soap and water.
Of course, having the right tools will make your job easier, so scroll to the bottom to see our recommended Sprayers, Rollers and Application Tools!
Coverage rates are approximate and will vary depending on substrate density, porosity and temperature.
Freshly placed concrete: 150-250 sq. ft. / gallon
Cured broom-swept concrete: 125-200 sq. ft. / gallon
Like all things, maintaining optimal protection of a sealed surface requires scheduled maintenance. Once properly applied, surfaces sealed with Repel Cure may periodically require a light cleaning to remove dirt, dust, mud, etc. In most cases, low pressure water is all that is needed for routine cleaning. Do not use a hot-water pressure washer unless you are preparing to apply a maintenance coat of Aqua Cure. Re-seal surface every two years or as needed to prevent buildup of sealer.
