CHEM-CRETE YUFIX® CCC1000

Water-based Concrete/Stone Sealer & Water Repellent

CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 is a deep penetrating formulation used as a water repellent and sealer for all masonry and synthetic masonry substrates. The product is non-toxic, non-flammable, odorless, and contains no VOCs. It is a unique clear single component catalyzed non-hazardous alternative to silane and siloxane water repellents. CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 chemical action results in a permanent seal of the concrete or masonry substrate pores and void walls to block the ordinary capillary action of water. CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 produces a highly effective, breathable sealer.  

 

CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 penetrating concrete sealer and water repellent is a unique proprietary formulation of a clear aqueous solution derived from a group of active chemicals. CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 chemically reacts with CO² in the atmosphere to become an integral part of the concrete or masonry substrate. The product does not rely on an alkali reaction for it to catalyze within a concrete substrate. CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 contains no silane, siloxane, silicone or sodium silicate ingredients. CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 is colorless, non-staining, non-film forming and will not yellow. CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 forms a barrier within the masonry substrate, protecting from weathering and helps keep treated surfaces cleaner by resisting the entrance of air-borne dirt, acid rain, smog, industrial pollutants and most other atmospheric chemicals. CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 can be used in above grade and on grade applications to protect against moisture penetration helping to prevent corrosion of steel reinforcing within the concrete substrate. CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 eliminates efflorescence and reduces spalling from freeze/thaw cycles.

APPLICATION

Surface Preparation: Surface must be clean, structurally sound and free of efflorescence, mortar residue and other contaminants that would prevent the penetration of CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000.  Repair surface defects, cracks and voids.  Install caulking or joint sealant prior to application. Cure new masonry surfaces for a minimum of 7 days under normal weather conditions.

 

Techniques: CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 may be applied to a dry or slightly damp concrete using airless   or low-pressure spray equipment, brush, roller or broom.

 

Precautions: When spraying CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 water repellent, care should be taken to prevent overspray on nearby articles.  It can cure on glass, plastic, aluminum and most metals.  If contact does occur, wash immediately with water.

  • Do not apply to frozen or frost filled surfaces or when temperature is or expected to fall below 40°F (5°C).
  • Do not use CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 to seal cracks or voids greater than 1/16th of an inch (1.5 mm).
  • Keep container closed when not in use.
  • Do Not Allow the Product to Freeze

 

Coverage: The following coverage rates are approximate and for estimating purposes only. International Chem-Crete is not accountable for any excess material used based on above estimated product coverage rates. For exact product consumption field testing should be preformed on actual substrate surface to determine coverage rates and effectiveness of the product.

 

Substrate ft2/gallon m2/liter
White or buff color concrete 150 – 200 3.68 – 4.91
Lime stone 200 – 220 4.91- 5.4
Granite 200 – 220 4.91- 5.4
Marble 200 – 220 4.91- 5.4
Slump block 120 -170 3.00 – 4.3
Pre-cast and poured concrete 150 – 200 3.68 – 4.91
Brick 150 – 200 3.68 – 4.91
Stucco 100 – 120 2.45 – 2.94
Plaster 150 – 200 3.68 – 4.91
Stone-tiles 200 – 250 4.91-6.14

 

Application: Agitate the pail before using.  Apply onto the substrate surface at above given coverage data with an even, uniform spreading rate. If a white precipitate should form because of over application after curing of CHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 and washing with water does not remove it, it maybe necessary to scrub the surface with a brush.

 

Cleaning: use water to clean application equipment and tools, immediately following use.

STORAGE

Two-year shelf life when stored in cool, dry place in unopened drums. Agitate or stir the bucket or drum before using. Do not store CCHEM-CRETE YUFIX CCC1000 below 40°F (5°C).

SAFETY

As with all construction chemical products, adequate precautions and care must be taken during usage and storage.  Avoid direct contact with foodstuff, eyes, skin, and mouth. Always wear protective goggles and gloves. In case of eye contact, flush for 15 minutes with warm water. Keep out of reach of children.
