Health & Safety


Concrete Hardener & Dustproofer



Please note: This product is used in the building and construction industries to harden and dustproof concrete. The product itself is NOT safe for human and aquatic life, just as bare concrete is also dangerous to fish.
It is your responsibility to ensure this product is used as directed, and oversealed by using a liner, pond paint, or other media to ensure it is kept away from living organisms.
We have personally used this product many times, and experienced no difficulties, but these guidelines are in place to protect you, and your livestock.

The product is a colourless, low viscosity liquid for application to concrete floors. It hardens and dust proofs the surface by combining with the free lime produced during hydration of the cement.


Instructions for use

Preparation

Remove all oil, grease, etc. Brush the floor well with a hard broom or wire brush. Remove all dust and loose matter using a soft broom or industrial vacuum. If wetting of the floor has taken place during preparation, it must be allowed to dry out before commencement of application.

Application

Wear rubber boots. Stir before use. Pour evenly, or use a plastic watering can to sprinkle the liquid over the surface of the concrete. Alternatively spray using a knapsack sprayer. Then sweep product backwards and forwards over the floor to ensure even penetration. Do not allow puddles to form.

Any liquid not totally absorbed into the surface must be removed by mops or squeegees before drying.

24 hours after initial treatment, apply a second coat in a similar manner (some floors may require three coats).

24 hours after the final coat, wash down the floor using clean water. The floor may be walked on and used during the treatment period.

New Concrete

New concrete should be allowed to cure fully (21 days minimum).

Dense Floors

Hard compacted/power floated surfaces may not have sufficient porosity to allow absorption of the product.

Prior to treatment test for absorption of water. If concrete is absorbent, test a small area with a neat mix of the product and establish whether adequate penetration is achieved.

Coverage

As porosity and texture of concrete floors and cement paving’s varies considerably, it is not possible to quote accurate coverage rates, but the following will provide a guide:

Tamped concrete: Approx. 3.5m² per litre. Smooth concrete: Approx. 5m² per litre.

Storage

Stir before use. Will freeze but can be reconstituted by stirring after thawing.

Shelf Life

Up to two years when stored in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.



Main hazards: Risk of serious damage to eyes.


Hazardous ingredients: SODIUM SILICATE 10-30%, EINECS: 215-687-4 CAS: 1344-09-8, [Xi] R38; [Xi] R41

First aid:

Skin contact: There may be irritation and redness at the site of contact.
Eye contact: There may be pain and redness. The eyes may water profusely. There may be severe pain. The vision may become blurred. May cause permanent damage.
Ingestion: There may be soreness and redness of the mouth and throat. Nausea and stomach pain may occur.
Inhalation: No symptoms.

Action:

Skin contact: Remove all contaminated clothes and footwear immediately unless stuck to skin. Wash immediately with plenty of soap and water.
Eye contact: Bathe the eye with running water for 15 minutes. Transfer to hospital for specialist examination.
Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. If conscious, give half a litre of water to drink immediately. Consult a doctor.

Incase of fire:


Extinguishing media: Suitable extinguishing media for the surrounding fire should be used. Use water spray to cool containers.
Exposure hazards: In combustion emits toxic fumes.
Protection of fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes. In combustion emits toxic fumes.



Environmental precautions: Do not discharge into drains or rivers.



Clean-up procedures: Absorb into dry earth or sand. Transfer to a closable, labelled salvage container for disposal by an appropriate method.


Storage conditions: Store in cool, well ventilated area. Keep container tightly closed. Store in original containers between +5 and +25`C. Storage outside these paramaters will dramatically reduce shelf life and invalidates all product warrenties.

Ensure sufficient ventilation. Wear protective eye wear, clothing and gloves at all times.

Rendermix Waterproofer

Please note: This product is used in the building and construction industries to resist and retard water, and as a plasticising admixture.
The product itself is NOT safe for human and aquatic life, just as as bare concrete is also dangerous to fish.
It is your responsibility to ensure this product is used as directed, and oversealed by using a liner, pond paint, or other media to ensure it is kept away from living organisms.
We have personally used this product many times, and experienced no difficulties, but these guidelines are in place to protect you, and your livestock.

Instructions for Use

Preparation of Substrate

The substrate to which the render is to be applied should be thoroughly sound and uncontaminated. Any existing coatings must be removed prior to the commencement of rendering.

Rendermix waterproofer is supplied ready to use and should be added to the mixing water at a rate of one part waterproofer to 20/40 parts water. This corresponds to a dosage rate of 500 ml to 1000 ml per 50 Kg of cement. The plasticising action of rendermix should be used to full effect by reducing the water/cement ratio; a reduction in water content up to approximately 20% is achievable compared to an unplasticised mix. Care should be taken not to overmix.

Dosage

500 ml to 1000 ml per 50 Kg kilos of cement.

Storage

Protect from frost. Stir before use.

Shelf Life

Up to two years when stored at normal temperatures in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.





Main hazards: Irritating to eyes and skin. May cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment if not overcoated or sufficiently sealed away from water.


Hazardous ingredients:
DIPENTENE <1% EINECS: 205-341-0 CAS: 138-86-3 [-] R10; [Xi] R38; [Sens.] R43; [N] R50/53

This is to confirm that the product once fully cured and applied correctly is fully safe for use to line fish ponds. The product in its liquid state could be dangerous to life (as are most paints!)

Method for application:

Surfaces should be dry and free of millscale, rust and dirt. All surfaces should be degreased immediately prior to coating. Brush application is preferred to ensure that all recesses, edges, rivet and bolt heads and nuts are coated thoroughly.
Drying may be assisted by the provision of a forced air draught.
A three coat system is needed for the treatment of fish ponds. Apply 3 coats, allowing a 24 hours drying period between coats. It is important that the first coat is thoroughly dry before application of the second coat.


Use clean, uncontaminated application equipment. After the third coat has dried thoroughly allow at least seven days for the coating to set. Before the pond is put into service it should be filled with cold drinking water and drained after not less than 4 days. If a taste is detected in this water, the flushing should be repeated. The paint is not suitable for hot water enclosures.
