Architectural Textured Structural Coating

CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 is a remarkably beautiful textured coating formulated to provide aesthetic variations and achievements while adding durability and protection for new constructions or upgrading existing structures. CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 forms a heavy-duty thick film finish for the aesthetic enhancement and protection of exterior and interior surfaces. The finish provides a uniform texture which minimizes surface defects without altering architectural features of the surface.


CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 has a base of Polyprene, a durable and waterproof synthetic elastomer-polyester resin. It is not an emulsion, contains no vinyl or acrylic. CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 is unexcelled in beauty and performance. The tough, flexible CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 film provides fungicidal, fire retardant, mildew resistant and insulating values not available in other building materials concept. CHEM-SHILED CCC800 provides the maximum weathering protection for construction assemblies.


CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 can be applied to many types of substrates including: Steel, Concrete, Wood, Brick, Plaster, Concrete Block, Sheetrock, Galvanized Metal, Stucco, Masonite, and Plywood. CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 is available as smooth, sand and perlite textured. Perlite textures are available in 3 grades; fine, medium, and heavy. CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 has been used extensively by various state highway departments to finish concrete bridge structures, bridge abutment, median strips, retaining walls, etc.

  • Concrete: Reduces necessary rubbing and finishing handwork. Ideal for bridges, precast buildings and all mass concrete structures.
  • Old, new metal buildings: Makes them look like concrete, insulates, soundproofs, and resists corrosion.
  • Stucco, concrete block: no patching or large cracks necessary, bridges and waterproof hairline cracks.
  • Plywood: inexpensive decorated panels, columns, channels, raised designs can be formed with plywood and finish with CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 to replace expensive concrete with stucco.

CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 can be used in Bridges, Parking garages, Street Median strips, Retaining walls, Stadiums, Desalination Plants, Industrial Plants, Apartment Buildings, Waste water treatment plants.


  • Outstanding adhesion, literally welds itself to any substrate.
  • Contains no lead or mercury compounds, yet is completely resistant to fungi and mildew.
  • Contains no silicone to affect recoatability, yet is wear and stain resistant because of an effective antipinholing substance with a low friction coefficient.
  • Tough and flexible membrane
  • Fire retardant
  • Very low water permeability

Coverage: CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 is applied in a single coat at a coverage rate of 50±5 ft2 per gallon (1.23±0.12 m2/Liter). This coverage rate will yield a dry film thickness of 22-26 mils (550 to 650 microns).


Drying Time: CHEM-SILED CCC800 dries to touch in 4 to 8 hours and to a reasonable hardness overnight. Full set is reached 3 to 4 weeks.


Color: CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 is available in 24 standard and 4 accent colors. Custom colors are available upon request.

Application Equipment: In general, experience has indicated that the most satisfactory method of applying CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 is spray application. However, under certain conditions, roller application may be used. Refer to CHEM-SHILED CCC800’s technical bulletin for more information.


General Surface Preparation: Surfaces to be coated shall be free from efflorescence, flaking coatings, rust, mill scale, dirt, oil and other foreign substances. Coatings shall be applied only to surfaces that are free of surface moisture as determined by light and touch.


SANDBLASTING: Wet or dry, wet sandblasting is preferred in areas where dirt concentration is a problem. All surface to dry completely before application of CHEM-SHIELD CCC800. It is not necessary to remove all paint or other coatings, only loose, oxidized, or deteriorated must be removed. Surface will probably appear mottled with some old material still evident. This process opens pores in the surface and reveals hidden defects that may be properly repaired.


WIRE BRUSHING, SCRAPING: Can affect a proper preparation when material is extremely loose and peeling. Do not brush or scrape well bonded material until it becomes glossy. Air driven scrapers are recommended.


MASKING: All areas not to be coated with CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 shall be securely masked with proper size masking tape and masking paper. Hand shield should be used only by experienced applicators.


Refer to CHEM-SHILED CCC800’s technical bulletin for specific surface preparation on:

  • Concrete
  • Concrete block, brick & porous brick
  • Plaster and stucco
  • Aluminum, Steel & Galvanized Metal
  • Sheet Rock
  • Wood, siding, Mosnite and plywood


Limitations:  Do not apply on surfaces, which have been sealed with curing compounds or form release agents.  Application at ambient temperatures below 40º (5°C) is not recommended.

Cleaning: clean all equipment that used CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 with suitable solvent. Mineral spirits can be used for this purpose.


Store under cover out of direct sunlight and protect from extremes of temperatures. Store in dry and cool conditions between 40ºF (5°C) and 77ºF (25°C). Product can be stored in dry cool condition for 2 years period.


After full curing, CHEM-SHIELD CCC800 is physiologically harmless.  As with all chemical products, care should be taken during the use and storage to avoid contact with eyes, mouth, skin and foodstuffs.  Treat splashes to eyes and skin immediately. If accidentally ingested, seek immediate medical attention. The uncured mixture can cause irritation of the skin.  The best protection is to wear protective gloves mask and goggles while working. The empty containers may contain residues of the product and should not be used for any purpose, and should be disposed off in accordance with local regulations.
