Heal and Seal Deco is the most ground-breaking concrete sealer in this age of low VOC coatings. For decades, water-based concrete sealers have been considered second rate to solvent-based sealers despite slight improvements that have been made to them in terms of durability and gloss. The biggest drawbacks were, and continue to be, recoatability and the ability to enhance ("wet out") the concrete surface like their solvent based counterparts. Even the most common solvent-based acrylics will darken the surface nicely and can be recoated every couple years with minimal preparation and fuss. Solvent-based sealers have come under fire the last few years due to their high VOC levels. Most states have enacted strict VOC limits on these products, which has resulted in sealer manufacturers being forced to use special solvents that meet these requirements. These newer solvents make sealers much less user-friendly and result in many more issues with the sealed surfaces in terms of blistering and improper cure. Even though water-based sealers do not share these problems with solvent-based sealers, they continue to be chosen last for the previous issues mentioned. Color enhancement and recoatibilty.

Heal and Seal Deco is the first water-based decorative sealer that will actually enhance and "wet-out" the surface like that of its fully solvent-based counterparts! In fact, Heal and Seal Deco will provide all the great characteristics that you are used to with your regular solvent-based sealer without the less desirable traits. It's simply the very best decorative concrete sealer on the market for its coverage, durability, and ease of use. Heal and Seal Deco can be used to replace your current sealer and provide stellar results. READ APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS AT BOTTOM OF PAGE.

Heal and Seal Deco contains NO acrylic resins. Instead, it works through an advanced silicon technology that provides a permanent treatment, protecting and preserving your concrete longer than any acrylic-based sealer could possibly do. This concrete sealer will penetrate and chemically fuse just below and above the surface of the concrete, as shown by Figure 1 below. This prevents water and other materials from getting below the surface and causing issues. This fused layer will also fill and heal small imperfections in the surface that would eventually lead to both aesthetic and physical imperfections in the surface. These imperfections can lead to color fade, concrete dusting, pop-outs, scaling, and even cracks (Figure 2). Standard sealers do not offer the level of protection that
Heal and Seal Deco can provide. If applied properly it will never peel like a traditional sealer because it is more than just a plastic skin sitting on the surface. Regular acrylics rely solely on mechanical bonding. They are nothing more than a special melted plastic (acrylic) that cures out to a very thin skin when applied to concrete and left to dry. It eventually gives way to sun and weather exposure, breaks down and with time, flakes away. Heal and Seal will not. Once chemically bonded into the surface it will not peel and flake away. It is a permanent treatment that will only wear away as the actual concrete wears. This sealer protection will continue to keep your concrete healthy down below even when the top layer eventually shows wear.

Do yourself a favor and protect your investment with the only decorative concrete sealer that will maintain the health and welfare of your beautiful hardscape. In addition to decorative concrete surfaces, Heal and Seal Deco is also an excellent choice for restoring the color of weathered pavers. It is very easy to apply and provides instant gratification with minimal cleanup.

HOW TO USE:

MIXING: Always mix product before using to ensure correction of any possible separation that may have occurred. Material may separate during long term storage. Highly-recommended to use a drill mixer with a mix head that lifts material toward the top surface to ensure a good blend. Blend for 2 minutes.

APPLICATION: Concrete should be clean and dry. Any previous sealer or coatings should be stripped and removed to ensure Heal and Seal is able to reach the concrete surface. It is always recommended to wait at least 28 days before applying to newly poured slabs. Excess moisture in the concrete can slow the curing process of the sealer and delay the time at which you are fully protected.

Standard Application Method: Spray with a quality sprayer that has a conical type tip and then back roll the sealer. Apply with slight overlap on spray passes taking care not to create heavy puddles. Another person should begin rolling the material out into an even coating, making sure they redistribute heavier areas of the sealer onto lighter areas. You should quickly find that the sealer spreads out quickly and easily into a nice even coating. Failure to apply with this method can result in uneven darkening of the surface. When sealing countertops you need to be sure you are always rolling out material with a wet roller. Always be pushing material in front of the roller and working it into the surface. When the surface is fully coated you can then continue to roll out until material is gone. You may even "wring out" your roller of excess material if too much is on the surface once it is fully coated.

Heal and Seal Deco will create a white surface that will absorb and react with the concrete surface, and cures clear as this happens. Failure to remove puddle areas can result in areas that will cure out much slower. Allow to dry for a minimum of 1 to 2 hours depending on current conditions of temperature, humidity, and starting moisture in the concrete. For best results, allow Heal and Seal to cure for up to 12 hours, if possible. Once cured you can resume normal activity on the surface. In most cases, a second coating is not necessary unless there is a visual indication that some areas absorbed much more material than others. If so, the second coating should be applied only after the initial coating has cured and is NO LONGER TACKY. Follow the same application procedure.

WARNING: Areas that remain white are indications of moisture present in that area or the material being applied to thick in that area. These areas could take a few extra days to fully cure, but they always do.


PLEASE NOTE: It is always recommended to test the product prior to application in a small, inconspicuous area (on the same concrete substrate). Coverage rates may vary for all coatings and substrates depending on porosity, density, texture etc. Do not exceed 400 sq ft per gallon when applying. Applying too thin of a coating may cause inadequate film formation or performance expectations may be limited.
