Skudo CURE

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.

 

Greatly Improve Curing of New Concrete

  • Improves cure by retaining slab moisture
  • Drastically reduces crazing and map cracking
  • High penetrating, non-film forming – no need to grind or chemically remove layer to seal and burnish
  • Forms hydrophobic barrier and increases stain repellency
  • Greatly improves abrasion resistance
  • Helps reduce efflorescence and minimizes dusting of the concrete
  • Replaces traditional Cure & Seal products on new concrete
  • Coverage rate is approximately 1,000-1,500 sq. ft. per GALLON (*Compared to standard topical coverage rates of 200 – 400 sq. ft. per GALLON)

Frequently Asked Questions

Skudo CURE

 

What is Skudo CURE?

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.

 

Why is Skudo CURE different to most traditional cure systems?

Skudo CURE has the following advantages:

  • Not topical: Skudo CURE penetrates the surface forming a moisture retaining barrier within the capillaries within the concrete which inhibits moisture loss improving hydration and long-term slab strength.
  • Superior coverage rate: Skudo CURE coverage is up to 1500 square feet per gallon. Traditional Cure and Seal products max out at around 400 square feet per gallon.
  • 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
  • Approved Curing System: Skudo CURE has been tested and approved for use by The Department of Defense, At Home Stores,7 Eleven and Amazon Distribution Centers.
  • No mechanical or chemical removal required: As Skudo CURE is not topical film forming it therefore requires no mechanical or chemical treatments to the slab prior to initial grinding or placement of adhesive installed materials such as tile, timber, VCT or carpet.

 

How is Skudo CURE applied?

Skudo CURE is applied with a standard pump sprayer with new / clean nozzle tip. Best practice is to use a microfiber mop to spread the Skudo CURE evenly across the surface. Alternatively overlapping the spray by 50% will ensure an even coverage. Over burnishing the slab will impede the absorption of the Skudo CURE into the concrete.
