Technical Information
Product Description

Vetocure XT426 is a resinous-based curing compound for cementitious substrates designed to be used as a curing agent that allows subsequent cementitious* and acrylic renders. Vetocure XT426 is a clear liquid applied directly from the pail to the concrete substrate by spray equipment to achieve the required results.
* It is recommended to remove the curing compound when applying cementitious renders.

Advantages
  • Easy to use single component directly from the container.
  • Minimizes cracking potential.
  • Improved curing and cement hydration.
  • Sprayable.
  • High curing efficiency.
  • Ready to receive further renders (refer to detailed method statement or Saveto technical department).
COMPLIANCE STANDARD

ASTM C309 as Type I, Type 1-D, and Type 2 Depending on the color, class B.

Packaging & Coverage

Vetocure XT426 is supplied in 20 & 200 Liters Containers and 1000 liter IBC tanks.

Theoretical Coverage: 7-9 m2/Liter.

Stated consumption data are for general guidance. Actual consumption depends on the nature of the substrate, method of application, and wastage.

Shelf Life & Storage

Vetocure XT426 has a minimum shelf life of 12 months, provided the temperature is kept within the range of 5ºC to 35ºC. Avoid freezing and prolonged exposure to heat or direct sunlight. Should the temperature of the product fall outside this range, then contact the Saveto Technical Service Department for advice.

Keep containers sealed and airtight to prevent loss of moisture by evaporation.

Instructions for use

Design Criteria

Vetocure XT426 is a resin-based curing compound. When first applied to a fresh cementitious surface, the product forms a continuous non-penetrating coating. This coating dries to form a continuous film which provides a barrier to moisture loss, ensuring more efficient cement hydration, improved durability, and reduced shrinkage.

Application

Minimum application temperature: 5ºC

Stir Vetocure XT426 white before use to ensure even dispersion of the pigment.

Vetocure XT426 should be spray applied to the surface of fresh concrete. The application should begin immediately after the concrete is free from surface water. Do not apply if bleed water is forming or present on the concrete surface.

The spray nozzle should be held approximately 450 mm and inclined at 35º to 45º from the concrete surface and passed back and forth to ensure complete coverage. The fugitive white color during application provides a guide to the area covered. Maintain pump pressure to give an even, fine spray.

After spraying, no further application of water or other material is necessary to ensure continued curing. The concrete surface should not be disturbed until it has sufficient strength to bear surface loads. Prevent the walk on the applied film until it is fully dry, and ensure that the film is not broken

Vetocure XT426 may also be applied to the surface of newly hardened concrete immediately after demolding. In such cases, the concrete surface must be damp and not dry. Dry surfaces may prevent correct film formation and cause absorption of the Vetocure XT426, which may lead to staining and difficulty in later removal. 

Theoretical Coverage rate

The recommended coverage rate is between 7-9 m2/liter. If the request for coverage outside the recommended coverage rate should meet the specification requirements, contact the local Saveto office or representative in advance in such cases.

Equipment

Use spray equipment to produce a fine Vetocure XT426 mist. Ensure the suitability of equipment by an application trial.

Equipment cleaning

Clean spray equipment immediately after use by flushing through with white spirit.

Over-coating and removal

Vetocure XT426 is ready to receive further layers of acrylic, polyurethane, and bituminous base.

Additional Information
Health & Sefety

Vetocure XT426 is flammable and should not be exposed to heat and direct sunlight. Vetocure XT426 should not be swallowed or allowed to contact skin and eyes either in bulk or spray form.
Wear suitable protective gloves and goggles. Remove splashes on the skin with water. In case of contact with the eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately - do not induce vomiting.
For further information, consult the Material Safety Datasheet available for this product.

Cleaning and disposal

Spillages of Vetocure XT426 should be absorbed onto sand, earth, or vermiculite and transferred to suitable containers. Clean remnants with Vetonit Solvent XX400.

Follow the local legislation for the disposal of excess or waste material.
