Concrete curing and sealing

Protect your Decorative Concrete Installation

Curing and sealing concrete increases the strength and durability of the concrete surface. The appearance and visual coloration of decorative concrete is greatly enhanced. New colored concrete should be cured with a liquid applied, film-forming curing compound. Curing with plastic sheeting or water spray should never be utilized with colored concrete. Sealing concrete provides economical protection for floors and hardscapes, reducing maintenance costs. It also minimizes the effect of de-icing salts and exposure to gas or oil and discoloration from dirt and spills.

Butterfield Color® manufactures a complete line of decorative concrete curing and sealing products engineered to enhance and protect many types of surfaces and are highly recommended for use with uncolored concrete, integrally colored concrete, and color hardened (shake-on) concrete, stamped or stenciled concrete and cementitious overlays.

Warning: Treated surfaces may be slippery during application prior to drying, and when wet with water or liquids after drying. Concrete should be textured sufficiently to eliminate potential slipping hazards. In addition, use a non-slip additive when sealing. Interior floors may be maintained with a slip resistant wax. Test and confirm that the material is adequately slip resistant prior to opening installation area to any traffic.
