ChemMasters has announced a new, easy-to-remove dissipating resin cure for freshly placed concrete. EZ Strip Cure DR is a water-based, low- VOC, low odor curing compound that cures concrete to ASTM C309 and AASHTO M 148 standards. Unlike other dissipating cure products, EZ Strip Cure DR does not require UV exposure, making it ideal for either indoor or outdoor use. It is easily removed with light mechanical or hand abrasion after curing is complete. Outdoors, low pressure water spray can be used for removal.
Application is simple, using standard spraying equipment. It will not clog or load diamond polishing tools and, therefore, does not require removal from substrates that are to be diamond polished.
EZ Strip Cure DR dissipates quickly for early removal with a low rpm floor buffer, walk behind or riding floor cleaner with stiff bristle pads, 100 grit sandpaper or 100 grit abrasive screen, or stiff bristle hand-held brushes. The ease of removal makes it an ideal choice for surfaces scheduled to receive subsequent treatments with dustproofers, liquid hardeners and densifiers, penetrating water repellent, polymer coatings or other floor coverings.
