HIGH PERFORMANCE HARDENER, STRENGTHENER AND DENSIFIER FOR CONCRETE FLOOR
Faircrete 17 is a silicate based clear liquid densifier when applied on concrete surfaces penetrates into the micro channels and seals against water and chemical attack and improves abrasion resistance.
• Superior in performance over Sodium based systems
• Seals micro-channels in concrete against water penetration and chemical attack.
• Hardens – making concrete stronger and abrasion resistant.
• Dust proofs-creating a cleaner, healthier environment.
• Permanent – One penetrating application.
• Easy maintenance. Makes cleaning easier. Reduces staining.
• Satin sheen to concrete.
FAIRCRETE 17 is used for surface hardening of new and old concrete to prevent dust generation and to reduce wear, particularly on exposed concrete. Typical areas of application include warehouses, factories, platforms, car parks, corridors etc., on both new and existing concrete surfaces.
The substrate shall be thoroughly cleaned of all foreign materials such as bond breakers, curing agents, form release oils, dust, construction laitance by light mechanical grinding if required. Clean the surface with a high pH detergent and wash thoroughly. The surface shall be saturated with water and later excess water has to be removed.
A low pressure, high volume sprayer shall be used to apply FAIRCRETE 17 so as to form a glistening sheen and to ensure complete saturation of the surface. Enough FAIRCRETE 17 shall be applied to keep the surface wet for at least 20 minutes.
If applying by hand, spread the sprayed material with a lambs wool roller once or twice and then stop spreading. If spread excessively, it tends to dry in streaks. After 20 minutes, the excess material shall be removed and the surface shall be allowed to dry for 1 – 2 hrs. The floor is ready to use after the surface is dry. A light lithium residue may form on the surface after the floor is dry. This is the excess FAIRCRETE 17 liquid floor hardener which was not absorbed and can be removed by a stiff broom or power sweeper. For an immediate shine, FAIRCRETE 17 shall be allowed to dry overnight and then polished with a high speed buffer equipped with a black pad, followed by a red pad.
Sealing / Overcoating / Striping:
The treated surface can also be painted for striping as there will be no chemical incompatibility between FAIRCRETE 17 treated surface and these paints.
Floors treated with FAIRCRETE 17 benefits from good routine maintenance. Regular scrubbing with a high pH detergent is recommended and can increase the shine. Tyre marks can be removed with a citrus type of cleaner. Oils and acids should be removed properly to prevent damage.
Packing and Coverage
Packing : FAIRCRETE 17 is supplied in 20 & 200 ltr containers.
Coverage : Spray applied – 10 – 12m² per Ltr on power trowelled surfaces. On textured surfaces the coverage will be much lower.
