Coatings for Industry has released WearCoat 3020, a new water-based lithium silicate concrete densifier that helps polished concrete floors last longer while maintaining an excellent look.
This new product is water-based and compliant with all VOC regulations, yet offers excellent adhesion to porous concrete, greatly reducing surface dusting as it facilitates polishing. It permanently bonds with concrete upon contact, filling the pores and improving its resistance to water, chemicals and abrasion.
The resulting surface provides high traction for safety, yet has a glossy, nonyellowing finish that can even improve with age. Most importantly, WearCoat 3020 helps prolong the life of the concrete, as it resists damage from salt, water and ultra-violet light intrusion.
WearCoat 3020 complies with all VOC regulations as it contains less than 10 g/l VOC. It has little or no odor during and after application. It is also nonhazardous for transport, so it can easily be delivered by any common carrier, even overnight.
This densifier is a single-component product, sold in one- and five-gallon containers. It offers a fast cure time — dry to touch in under two hours, light foot traffic in four to six hours, and ready for vehicles or polishing in 24 hours.
