Concrete Treat™ As A Superior Grade Line Sealer

Concrete Treat™ As A Superior Grade Line Sealer

A Clear, Water-Based, Easy-To-Use Gradelines Sealer (Damp Proofing) For Faster, Cleaner Construction

During new construction of a concrete foundation, the foreman will often decide to apply a layer of tar on the outside surface of the walls as a grade line sealer.

The tar is intended to protect from water and moisture within the soil, which would seep into the concrete and contribute to humidity and efflorescence buildup in the basement. Additionally, moisture in the concrete could lead to spalling concrete during construction in situations where below-freezing temperatures are likely.

Using Concrete Treat™ provides a superior option when damp proofing a foundation -- one that is faster, easier, and more convenient.

Issues With Gradeline Tar

Common problems with gradeline tar include the following:

  • Gradeline tar is difficult and time-consuming to install properly.
  • Damp proofing tar can easily dry out and crack, negating any protection that would have been provided.
  • Gradeline tar makes for terrible cleanup, and can damage installation equipment if not thoroughly cleaned.
  • Damp proofing tar comes with various environmental concerns.

If gradeline tar has been applied below the soil line, it does not provide protection to the untreated portion of the concrete, and moisture can still enter the concrete.

When the gradeline tar is applied above the soil line, unsightly sections of black tar will be visible after construction.

Use Concrete Treat In All Your Concrete Construction!

Concrete Treat provides a faster, cheaper, easier to use alternative to gradeline tar for a new concrete foundation. Applied with a simple garden sprayer or airless sprayer, it reacts with the concrete to form a silicate barrier deep within the pores of the concrete that is not visible -- which enables you to protect the concrete all the way to the top of the foundation wall. Your foundation will now be protected from rain-driven moisture above the grade! It's able to be applied in below-freezing temperatures of 28°F and rising, and the product is available in a convenient single sealed form that allows for easy shipping and transport to site.

With a drying time that can be as little as 20 minutes, depending on weather conditions, Concrete Treat elminates potential scheduling issues, and can be applied with none of the challenges that come with tar -- including concerns with environmental issues and the black color. To make Concrete Treat visible for inspection, it can be ordered with a "disappearing ink" dye included, that will fade in 72 hours, while losing none of its protective qualities.

Advantages Of Concrete Treat:

  • Protects concrete from spalling damage
  • Dries quickly & invisibly
  • Faster, cleaner application than gradeline tar
  • Can be mixed with disappearing ink for inspections
  • Does not yellow or discolor with time or exposure to sunlight
  • Can be applied to damp concrete and also newly placed (uncured) concrete surfaces
  • Can be used in below-freezing temperatures of 28°F and rising
