Features and Benefits
  • Provides a totally clear membrane for new or old concrete for improved durability.
  • Seals all concrete surfaces, providing a satin (“matte”) appearance and easier clean-up.
  • Dust proofs concrete with a tough, durable film.
  • Will not yellow under ultraviolet exposure.
  • Excellent blush resistance in damp areas.

APPLICATION

Surface Preparation – The concrete surface must be clean and free of standing water. Remove any sealer or
other material that may prevent adhesion of DECO SHINE MATTE.AGITATE WELL BEFORE EVERY USE!

Application to Fresh Concrete – Apply at a uniform coverage by spray or roller at 350-400 sq ft /gal. Product may be sprayed with a hand held “pump-up” sprayer or an airless industrial sprayer. If roller applied, use a short napped solvent resistant sleeve. When an extra high gloss is desired or on especially
porous surfaces, another thin application can be applied the next day at 400 sq-ft/gal.

Sealing Existing Concrete – The surface must be thoroughly cleaned and dried before applying Deco Shine
Matte. Pressure washing with a strong alkaline detergent to remove dirt, waxes and oils is recommended. Acids will not sufficiently clean or remove dirt, curing compounds, or old sealer from concrete. Worn or porous areas may need a second application for uniform sealing and appearance. Allow 24 hours before 2nd application of sealer. In general, multiple thin coats (350 – 400 sq ft/gal) will provide a harder, more durable finish than a single heavy application. Dry time will be influenced by both temperature and humidity.

DECO SHINE BROWN EX is a light brown pigmented sealer that enhances and tints the cement paste of a Merrimack Brown exposed aggregate surfaces.

 

APPLICATION

DECO SHINE BROWN EX dries much faster than standard solvent–based product. DECO SHINE
BROWN EX should not be applied on hot surfaces or in direct sunlight as this could cause rapid evaporation and will not allow the film to form properly. Under these conditions the film may bubble, peel and/or blush. Tip: If spraying DECO SHINE BROWN EX keep pressure in pump up sprayers as high as possible to  ensure a steady and even spray pattern. Maintain the sprayer tip near the concrete surface, within 12 inches.

Agitate well before every use! Apply with a sprayer in uniform thin films; spray apply for best results. Two thin coats should be applied. Apply the second coat after the first coat has thoroughly dried. Never apply one heavy coat. Avoid puddles. Apply in accordance with recommended coverage rates.

Curing: 300 – 400 sq ft / gal
Dustproofing and Sealing: 400 – 600 sq ft / gal
Aged concrete: 400 – 600 sq ft / gal

For dustproofing and sealing benefits, apply two coats at 500 sq ft / gal. On broom or rough finished concrete, double the coverage rate. Coverage may vary due to porosity and conditions of the concrete.
New Concrete: DECO SHINE BROWN EX should be applied as soon as the surface water has disappeared
and the concrete surface will not be marred by the walking applicator. At this point, apply in a uniform coat. For a superior finish and added curing and sealing protection, apply a second coat at 400 sq ft / gal.
Existing Concrete: Concrete surface must be clean, dry or damp and free of all stains, oil, grease, dirt, and
incompatible coatings prior to application. An application of DECO SHINE BROWN EX will renovate existing concrete, brick or terrazzo floors. These surfaces will be brighter and easier to clean and maintain.

The Duke Company is proud to carry SpecChem products including DECO LIQUID RELEASE . DECO LIQUID RELEASE is a liquid release for decorative texturing mats. DECO LIQUID RELEASE is a colorless liquid release formulated and recommended for use with decorative,
mat-type concrete, texturing mats. It forms a lubricating barrier that prolongs the life of the imprinting tools by decreasing the friction between the mats and the concrete.

          (585) 335-5970 (Dansville NY)

 

 

 


DECO LIQUID RELEASE is used in the texturing process of both colored and uncolored concrete. It is also used as an alternative to powdered release agents that may not be desired in certain circumstances, such as interior projects.

 

APPLICATION

Trowel and finish newly poured concrete surfaces in preparation for the imprinting process. When the concrete has reached the plastic stage desirable for imprinting, DECO LIQUID RELEASE should be used between the texture mats and the concrete to prevent sticking and concrete build up.

Apply in temperatures between 55 degree F and 80o degrees F. Using a pump-type sprayer, liberally apply a mist of DECO LIQUID
RELEASE on the texturing mats AND on the concrete surface, but only on the area where you are going to place the next few mats. Apply over an area of approximately 10 to 15 square feet to avoid evaporation before the mat placements are made, especially on dry windy
days.

COVERAGE
One gallon of DECO LIQUID RELEASE will release approximately 150-250 square feet of concrete surface.

In addition to forming an effective film forming curing and sealing compound, it also contains silane. Silane penetrates the fresh concrete and provides protection against spalling and deterioration of concrete structures caused by deicing salts.

CURESHIELD EX can be applied to fresh concrete unlike other siloxane, silane type products and also meets ASTM C-309 and 1315 curing standards.

CURESHIELD EX penetrates the surface and bonds directly with the substrate, which results in a surface that is highly resistant to moisture and salt.

 

APPLICATION

Coverage: Ready to use. Do not dilute. Apply with a sprayer in uniform thin film; spray apply for best results. Apply a single coat uniformly and do not allow to puddle. Apply in accordance with recommended coverage rates.

Curing Fresh Concrete: 200 – 250 sq ft / gal
Aged concrete: 200 – 300 sq ft / gal

On broom or rough finished concrete, increase the coverage rate to compensate for the added surface area. Coverage may vary due to porosity and conditions of the concrete.

New Concrete: CURESHIELD EX should be applied as soon as the surface water has disappeared and the concrete surface will not be marred by the walking applicator. At this point, apply in a uniform coat leaving no gaps. Do not allow the material to puddle.

Existing Concrete: Concrete surface must be clean, dry or damp and free of all stains, oil, grease, dirt, and other contaminants that can prevent adhesion or penetration of the CureShield EX An application of CURESHIELD EX will renovate existing concrete surfaces. These surfaces will be brighter and easier to clean and maintain.

NOTE: CureShield EX dries much faster than standard solvent –based product. CureShield EX should not be applied on hot surfaces or in direct sunlight as this could cause rapid evaporation and will not allow the film to form properly. Under these conditions the film may
bubble, peel and/or blush. Tip: If spraying CureShield EX keep pressure in pump up sprayers as high as possible to ensure a steady and even spray pattern. Maintain the sprayer tip near the concrete surface, within 12 inches.
