UBQ Industries - Active Elements™ Advance Seal
Water based acrylic sealer for interior concrete floors.
Active Elements™ – Advance Seal is a water-reducible acrylic emulsion based on hard polymers with ultra-small particle size that gives the coating excellent substrate penetration and durability. The material has excellent UV stability and will not chalk or yellow. Advance Seal is the perfect solution for interior floors where depth of color and moderate gloss is desired. For added protection on high traffic floors, Advance Seal can be top coated with Active Elements – Protect & Shine to form a sacrificial barrier.
Coverage – 100-200
square feet per gallon
Coverage variations depend on concrete surface porosity and amount of material applied.
Concrete must be clean and free of dirt, dust, oil, grease, mold and mildew, and any other contaminants.
Acid Stained concrete must be neutralized, thoroughly cleaned, and dry prior to sealing.
Pigment stained concrete must be completely dry prior to sealing.
concrete and overlays must be open and porous to allow for sealer penetration.
All new concrete should be allowed to cure for a minimum of 45 days, or until a pH reading of 10.5 or less is achieved. Concrete must be completely dry prior to sealer application. It is strongly recommended that a surface probe moisture meter be utilized to verify the surface is dry. After visually determining the concrete is dry, test a minimum of 10 different areas of the concrete with the moisture meter. Pay special attention to cracks, control joints, and slab edges.
Application - Roller
Stir well before use. Pour Active Elements – Advance Seal through a strainer prior to use. Apply by using a high quality 3/8” nap lint free roller cover, or 1/4” nap mohair roller cover (for smooth surfaces). Dip directly into a roller pan and distribute the material by rolling laterally and then up and down (crosshatch rolling). Roll the material into a wet edge, and avoid excessive back rolling. When applying 2 coats of sealer roll the second coat perpendicular to the first. Keep containers closed when not in use, unattended open material will form a skin on the surface.

Slip and Fall Precautions
OSHA and the American Disabilities Act (ADA) have now set enforceable standards for slip-resistance on pedestrian surfaces. The current coefficient of friction required by ADA is .6 on level surfaces and .8 on ramps. UBQ Industries, LLC recommends the use of angular slip-resistant aggregate in all coatings or flooring systems that may be exposed to wet, oily or greasy conditions. It is the contractor and end users’ responsibility to provide a flooring system that meets current safety standards. UBQ Industries, LLC or its sales agents will not be responsible for injury incurred in a slip and fall accident.
