FAQs

Are your products safe?

Q:

A:

Generally speaking, OBEX products have been formulated to have low or zero VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). Please refer to specific product Safety Data Sheets for relevant product safety information.

Can Creteseal® MAX be applied by anyone?

Q:

A:

OBEX maintains an OBEX Certified Installer (OCI) network across the country who specialize in concrete coating applications. OBEX is continuously expanding the OCI network and welcomes the opportunity to work with contractors who have the experience, and tools, necessary to perform installations to the standards required by the OBEX 15-Year Warranty. 

How long do your products need to dry?

Q:

A:

Every installation will depend on the unique environmental conditions present at that time. However, CS2000™ typically takes 2-4 hours to fully penetrate, at which point foot traffic can resume. Creteseal® MAX applied in a single coating will generally require 4-5 hours to dry prior to installing a primer and topcoat. Please refer to the product-specific Technical Data Sheet (TDS) for more information.

Can we purchase OBEX products from retailers, wholesalers and/or distributors?

Q:

A:

OBEX utilizes a direct sales model to provide customers cost-effective solutions on their construction projects. Please contact OBEX at 844-265-3535 to speak to a representative regarding product pricing for your specific application.

Why should I use OTA™ concrete troweling aid instead of water or an evaporation retarder?

Q:

A:

When finishers add water to the surface “blessing the slab” it can increase the water cement ratio of the concrete and lower surface strength and durability. OTA™ creates a dense, durable surface during finishing, while facilitating an easier and more efficient troweling process. 

Does CS2000™ require a vapor retarder / barrier underneath the slab?

Q:

A:

OBEX recommends compliance with all construction documents, specifications and industry standards. Vapor retarders are nearly always required to prevent ground-originated moisture intrusion from below the slab.

Can we buy products in small quantities?

Q:

A:

Yes. OBEX products are generally sold in 5-gallon containers designed for commercial and industrial applications. Please refer to the product-specific Technical Data Sheet (TDS) for more information. For project-specific pricing, please contact an OBEX representative.

Is OBEX an authorized Creteseal® distributor?

Q:

A:

OBEX is authorized to distribute the Creteseal® and Creteshield® family of products. Please contact OBEX at 844-265-3535 to speak to a representative regarding product pricing for your specific application.
