COATINGSPRO JULY 2017 59 New Concrete Curing, Sealing Compound Specialty concrete chemicals manufac- turer ChemMasters, Inc. introduced its Silencure DOT, a single- step, white pigmented, wa x emulsion curing compound w ith integral penetrating silane sealer. Silencure DOT is formu- lated to meet stringent specifications for curing new highway pavement, w ith long-term silane protection from damage caused by freeze/thaw cycles and de-icing chemicals. Silencure DOT cures concrete to ASTM C309 standards. Its white pigmentation provides a minimum 65-percent light ref lectance to keep concrete cool as it cures, while integral silane meets most state requirements for reduction of water and chloride ion penetration. T he product also replaces the time-consuming process of separate curing, removal, and sealing steps traditionally associated w ith placement and sealing of new highway pavement.
