Spray Applied

Synthetic10 is an environmentally friendly pre-mixed solution of high quality resins used for treating concrete substrates for flooring products. The product is designed to penetrate damp concrete and embed resins with water resistance properties, that aid in reducing the concretes moisture vapor transmission rate. Allowing concrete surfaces to be treated during the initial concrete pouring process.

The easy to use contractor applied product is spray applied to the concrete surface when the surface is not damage from foot traffic, between 4 - 10 hours after application. This allows the Synthetic10 product to freely penetrate the surface and eliminates the need to shot blast, sand or grind the surface.

The high quality resins offer exceptional water retention for curing, dust proofing, and alkali resistance. The sealed surface remains directly compatible with flooring adhesives, primers and is durable as a standalone floor finish.

CONCRETE PREPARATION

No concrete preparation is required prior to the application of Synthetic10.  Please consult Synthetics International prior to product use. 

Synthetic10 is applied as a replacement for traditional curing and sealing products when the surface will allow foot traffic or after the concrete water curing process.  Surface must be clean and free of debris.  If the concrete cures beyond the application period and/or becomes contaminated, shot blast the surface with #180 shot to expose a clean absorbent surface.

As required for cleaning the surface, use a high volume blower to remove surface sand and/or rinse the surface with clean water to remove debris. Proceed when the surface is clean and dry.

MIXING

Read all technical data prior to use. Synthetic10 is pre-mixed and requires agitation before use. Slowly flip the bucket over and allow to settle for 1 minute. Carefully holding the bucket in each hand shake the unit for 30 seconds. If a mixing paddle and low speed (400prm) drill are available, mix each bucket for 1 minute to form a consist mixture. Mixed product is clear in color with a viscosity of less than 200cps. Dispose of product after use.  Do not reuse product that has been exposed to open air after 1 hour.  

PRODUCT APPLICATION

  • • Apply product directly to freshly poured concrete when surface will allow foot traffic  
  • • If concrete has been water cured or covered with a curing blanket or plastic, the surface must
  •   be cleaned using a 10,000 psi power washer
  • • Spread evenly over entire surface following specified spread rates
  • • Perform all concrete cutting after product applications are dry  
  • • Typical curing times @ 80 °F Degrees:

  Light Foot Traffic: 2 hours          Wheel Traffic: 48 hours         


SPREAD RATES

Reduce emission levels to 5 lbs. ..........................1 coat @ 350 ft2 / gallon
Reduce emission levels to 3 lbs. ..........................2 coats @ 400 ft2 / gallon

Coverage rates may vary based on concrete profile and porosity. Product is resistant to 14pH alkali for all spread rates.


CRACK & JOINT TREATMENT

Seal all cracks and joints with Synthetic10 during initial application. Cracks may also be resealed with Synthetic10 prior to flooring installations.  All cracks and joints will require a non-porous primer when cement patching products are used. Please consult our technical department for approved products.

CEMENT PATCHING

Areas where a cement patching compound is required to repair cracks, joints and slab imperfections must be coated with non-porous primer prior to cement patching application.  Primer will maintain long term patch performance.  Always apply cement products to the minimum required thickness for adhesives and allow patching products to cure for 24 hours prior to flooring adhesive application.  Do not use gypsum patching products. 

MOISTURE TESTING

Apply vapor emission and digial alkalinity-pH tests directly on the Synthetic10 surface.  Perform testing while the interior spaces are acclimated.  Do not grind or sand the surface. 

LIMITATIONS

The concrete surface temperature needs to be a minimum of 45°F (7.2°C) during installation and 24 hours after application. Do not apply if rain, snow or dew point is expected after 24 hours of application. Read and throughly understand all safety, cleaning, mixing and technical data prior to use.  Surface shall be 5 degrees F above dewpoint and temperatures rising.
