          (585) 335-5970 (Dansville NY)

 

 

 

 


BENEFITS

  • Reduce application costs with one step low pressure spray application on broom or power trowelled finishes.
  • Achieve architectural finishes, does not contribute to Alkali Surface Reaction (ASR), Will not leave a white surface as compared to other silicate products.
  • Reduce dusting, porosity, water permeability.
  • Improves abrasion resistance, light reflectance and gloss.
  • Deeper penetrating then conventional silicates.
  • Can be used interior and exterior.
  • Fast curing. Ready for traffic in one hour for most floors.
  • Breathable
  • Apply on new or existing concrete
  • Environmentally and economically efficient sealer
  • Great for residential, commercial and industrial concrete floors
  • Single, low maintenance application

 

APPLICATION

Always follow Technical Data sheet instruction and Safety information provided on the MSDS. LITHSEAL SC may be applied on freshly placed concrete after the final finishing and to existing (cured) concrete. Always apply LITHSEAL SC to a clean surface free of cures, bond breakers, oil, dirt, grease or debris. When necessary, clean concrete surfaces with SpecChem Citrus Cleaner and neutralize with a neutral ph
detergent. Thoroughly flush with water.

Application for freshly placed concrete:

After final finishing apply LITHSEAL SC with a quality low pressure sprayer with a fan tip. Uniformly spread the LithSeal SC with a soft broom or microfiber applicator to thoroughly coat the concrete eliminating any puddles or excess. Apply enough material to keep the surface wet for 15-20 minutes. Apply additional LITHSEAL SC to porous areas that dry quickly.

Any excess LithSeal SC that dries on the surface will appear as a dry powder residue and can be removed with a stiff broom, power sweeper, or floor scrubbing machine.

A compatible ASTM C 309 curing compound such as SpecChem “SpecRez” may be applied to finalize the curing process. After the concrete has thoroughly cured, a floor scrubber equipped with a nylo-grit or similar abrasive cleaning pad will remove any residual construction debris, curing compound and further enhance the LithSeal SC surface shine.

Coverage Rates:
Coverage rates will vary with concrete porosity.

Fresh, Uncured, Burnished Concrete…..800-1000ft2/gal
Existing Steel Trowelled Concrete……….400-500ft2/gal.
Existing Float Finished Concrete ………….250-350ft2/gal

Typical Dry time is 1-2 hours

Application for existing concrete:
Confirm removal of all surface contaminants. For best results clean the surface with a 60-100 grit sanding screen or diamond abrasive pad. Remove any dust and residue with a thorough water rinse and scrubber. Water rinse and squeegee surface dry Apply LITHSEAL SC with a quality low pressure sprayer. In a single saturating coat. Uniformly spread the LithSeal SC with a soft broom or microfiber applicator to thoroughly coat the concrete eliminating any puddles or excess. Apply enough material to keep the surface wet for 15-20 minutes. Apply additional LITHSEAL SC to porous areas that dry quickly. Let treated areas dry. Remove any dried powdery residue with a stiff broom or floor scrubbing machine.

K-Set accelerates the hydration of cement resulting in shorter setting times and high early strength. K-Set provides improved workability, helps prevent segregation and is a substantial aid in early stiffening for mortar and stucco mixes. K-Set is an aqueous solution of organic and inorganic compounds that produces a rapid heat development of the mortar that protects it from freezing during its early life at low temperatures. K-Set is V.O.C. compliant.

  • Improves production time by improving workability and reducing set time
  • Increases protection for reinforcing
  • Produces high early strength

APPLICATION

Add K-Set to water. K-Set can be added to the sand, in the water or to the complete mix. Do not add to dry cement. Do not allow K-Set to contact other additives before entering the mortar. Add K-Set at the rate of 10 to 25 oz.(283-707.5 gm) per bag of masonry cement depending upon the degree of acceleration required. For Portland Cement, add 18 to 46 oz.(509-1302 gm) of K-Set. It is recommended that the exact rate of addition be determined by testing the actual materials to be used on each job. The rates of additions given are guidelines based upon a variety of conditions and materials.
