Concrete Remedy DS (Deep Seal)
contractors, architects, and engineers know the destructive results
when masonry and cementitious surfaces are not properly treated
and protected. Yet, property owners and maintenance personnel often
overlook or are not aware of this construction deficiency until
the structures visibly appear to crumble, deteriorate or show signs
penetration of rain, and waterborne contaminants therein, salts,
oils, etc., along with freeze - thaw cycles, entering the pores
of the concrete are known to cause extensive damage. These pores
act like tubes or canals that carry damaging substances below the
surface (often through the entire structure), which creates major
deterioration problems to concrete structures.

Description of Concrete Remedy DS
DS is a scientific, cost efficient, penetrating preservative
which waterproofs, seals, cures and strengthens old and new masonry
and cementitious surfaces.
DS will outperform and outlast every other sealant on
DS is a safe and easy to use, nontoxic, nonflammable,
odorless, clear and water soluble liquid compound.
According to the US Testing Laboratories, the interior of a piece
of concrete contains a minimum of 362 times the amount of alkali
as compared to the surface area. Therefore,
Concrete Remedy DS, which permeates into the concrete and
chemically reacts with the alkali becomes a permanent part of the
concrete. It is not just a surface coating.
Other sealers, even "penetrating sealers", are surface
treatments only and by their own chemical compositions, will react
negatively with the moisture and alkali in the concrete and soon
peel off due to aeration and deterioration. If there is foot or
vehicular traffic, most sealers on the market will wear off in weeks,
leaving the concrete unprotected.
DS, on the other hand, uses the alkali within the concrete
and chemically bonds with and to the concrete internally. It cannot
aerate or deteriorate, thus giving the concrete a permanent, one
time only, waterproofing seal and cure.
Foreign matter such as acids, certain alkalies, oils, salts, and
other various substances can be very destructive to concrete. Contaminants
which become imbedded in the concrete cause various forms of deterioration
over time. Concrete Remedy DS will
prevent such destruction from within.
DS reacts with the alkali in the moisture on the surface
of the voids and particulate, to form a sticky gel which is forced
by capillary (and an attraction to dampness), into the voids and
canals that exist beneath the
surface of the concrete.
Concrete Remedy DS has an affinity
for moisture, this facilitates it floating along through the voids
and canals. As it does so, it encounters more alkali rich moisture
and forms more gummy gel, coating the walls of the larger voids
and canals, completely filing smaller ones. This process repeats
itself until the concrete is permanently sealed. Yet, Concrete Remedy
DS allows the concrete to breathe.

voids (oils, salts, acids, etc.) to the surface where they can be
