Penetrating Curing Agent
Skudo CURE is a penetrating curing agent that chemically hardens and dust-proofs concrete for improved abrasion resistance without forming a coating on the surface.
Skudo CURE is recommended on newly placed concrete to retain moisture in the slab for improved curing characteristics while increasing the initial water and stain repellency of the surface. It can be used with integrally colored concrete.
Skudo CURE was designed for use on decorative concrete; it requires no UV light for dissipation and will not stop the penetration of densifiers or dyes into the surface.
The penetrating nature of the Skudo CURE means that the aggressive abrasives or strippers that are required for some traditional topical curing products are no longer required – saving time when prepping the surface.

How to Apply
IMPORTANT - Read Before You Begin Application:
- Store in safe dry place at 40-105Fº (4 -41Cº)
- Do not mix with other chemicals
- Seal container after use
- Keep out of reach of children
- Keep product from freezing
- To protect from overspray, cover any surrounding materials before application.
Skudo CURE is a Ready to Use product and should not be mixed or diluted with any other product.
Skudo CURE should be applied at a rate of 1,000 to 1,500 sf per Gallon.
Apply to new concrete immediately after power trowel comes off the slab or once the bleed water has disappeared.
Note: Ensure that the finishers do not burn (over burnish) the slab that will create a cap. This will hinder penetration into the surface.
Apply product with low pressure pump sprayer and conical tip. Spray Skudo CURE to lightly wet the surface without creating puddles. Apply in a consistent, overlapping circular motion, holding the wand approximately 12 inches above the surface. SkudoCURE™ will absorb into concrete more quickly in some places than others. Do not over-apply. Do not allow product to puddle.
While spraying, immediately spread Skudo CURE evenly across the surface using a microfiber pad with Skudo CURE applied to the face.
Prevent overspray on other materials. If this happens, immediately rinse off any overspray with water.
Apply the Skudo CURE before any soft cutting operations.
Do not apply when ambient or surface temperature is below 40°F (4.4°C).
Tools in contact with Skudo CURE can be washed up with soap and water shortly after application.
Wet overspray on glass or metal can also be removed with soap and water.
Use a solvent cleaner as soon as possible to remove any dried overspray.
