Deco Seal is a 100% water based coating designed to protect foundation walls from hydrostatic water pressure. Designed for poured concrete walls, ICF walls, precast and block (parged/non-parged) walls.
- ICC classified as a waterproof material for above and below grade applications.
- Deco Seal can be applied 1 day after forms are removed or block mortar is dry. No waiting 7 or 28 days like other products bc Deco Seal is 100% waterbased no interference w/ curing process.
- UV resistant, No grade line issues. Tar, solvent systems cannot be applied above grade.
- Apply from Footer Joint upto the Sill Plate - Complete Wall Protection!!
- Seemless - Liquid applied.(No cutting, taping seams, nail guns, screws into wall - labor intensive)
- Colors available: LIGHT GRAY or BEIGE
- Very LOW VOC's, Non-Hazardous, Paintable, Breathable or Permeable.
- Meets all STATES building codes in USA.
- Easy roll on with 3/4" or 1" nap roller or airless sprayer (2500+psi & 1-2 gal. per min. flow rate)
- No need for 6 mil. poly, dimple boards or wraps over our product when dry. If grade is rocky, shale or sharp edged, heavy clay, etc. a 1/2" or 1" white/pink/blue foam board as a "Protection Board" (not part of the waterproofing system) can be placed over Deco Seal when dry.
- Elasticity testing to bridge a crack up to 1/8"
- Designed for DIY, professional applicators, poured wall/concrete contractors, masons, etc.
Most waterproofing products are solvent based or water emulsified. That just means water is added to a solvent based polymer. It's still solvent based just labeled water based or emulsified. Not healthy.
DECO SEAL IS BUILT GREEN - AN ENVIRONMENTALLY ECO SAFE PRODUCT!!
Deco SEAL Applications
- CMU Block, Precast, Poured Concrete, ICF & Styrofoam Walls.
- Parged Block * (also known as a mortar scratch coat over CMU block)
- Open or Exposed Walls and Tapered Grade Lines. Esthetic Looking!
- Remove all dirt, dust, oils, foreign material which is to be coated.
- Fill or repair any cracks, honeycomb, wall ties, holes, etc. with Deco Tie Patch or concrete repair caulk/patch.
- New Construction - Surface must be dry to allow for proper adhesion. Can be applied on green concrete. The American Concrete institute (ACI) defines green concrete that has set but not appreciably hardened.
- Use 2000+ PSI airless sprayer w/ flow rate of 1-2 gallons per minute. Apply first coat w/ no run downs and if you can apply second coat at starting point and second coat holds w/ no run downs apply. Otherwise let first coat set until second coat can be applied.
- Roll On - Use 3/4" or 1" nap roller and apply on surface evenly but do not product run down or your applying to heavy. Apply one coat let dry then apply second coat.
- Protection Boards - Optional if grade is heavy clay, rocky/shale we recommend a pink/blue board. Apply liquid nails on board and place against the wall over Deco Seal.
- Temperature of 32-95 degrees otherwise cold or evaporation will affect Deco Seal dry/curing and/or coverage rate
- Do not apply with the threat of imminent rain. Perform test to insure desired results.
- Dry cure rate is 12 hours. Dependent on temperature, airflow, humidity. Do not backfill grade until Deco Seal is dry.
* Specifications require Deco 20 Clear Sealer to be applied first on non-parged block walls only. Allow Deco 20 to dry then apply Deco Seal. Deco 20 is a primer and increases adhesion.
