LithSeal Lite – SpecChem | The Duke Company

The Duke Company is proud to carry SpecChem products including LithSeal Lite. LithSeal Lite is an economical lithium silicate sealer/ densifier for concrete surfaces. LITHSEAL LITE deeply penetrates and reacts with cured concrete. This reaction produces a calcium silicate hydrate within the concrete pores. Treated surfaces will remain breathable, reduce porosity, reduce dusting, reduce water permeability and increase abrasion resistance. When properly applied, LithSeal LITE will not leave the whitish blush characteristic of other sodium silicate products

The Duke Company can assist you with all your construction needs. We offer expert advice from our highly rated customer service. Furthermore, we offer the best values and fast delivery. For exceptional customer service & the fastest delivery in Upstate New York, call us for a prompt rental quote.

APPLICATION

Always follow Technical Data sheet instruction and Safety information provided on the MSDS. LITHSEAL LITE may be applied on freshly placed concrete after the final finishing and to existing (cured) concrete. Always apply LITHSEAL LITE 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 LITE with a quality low pressure sprayer with a fan tip. Uniformly spread the LITHSEAL LITE 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 LITE to porous areas that dry quickly. Any excess LITHSEAL LITE 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 LITE surface shine.

Coverage Rates:

Coverage rates will vary with concrete porosity.

  • Fresh, Uncured, Burnished Concrete……500-800ft2 /gal
  • Existing Steel Trowelled Concrete……….400-700ft2 /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 LITE with a quality low pressure sprayer. In a single saturating coat. Uniformly spread the LITHSEAL LITE 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 LITE to porous areas that dry quickly. Let treated areas dry. Remove any dried powdery residue.
