Lythic Solutions’ new DAY1 Finishing Aid has won the 2013 Product Innovation Award given by Architectural Products Magazine. A double-performing product that both improves concrete finishing and boosts the long-term performance and durability of the slab, DAY1 won in the Concrete and Masonry category.
DAY1 is sprayed onto fresh concrete as it is being placed. It slows moisture evaporation and makes the slab surface more workable without weakening concrete the way added water does. DAY1 extends finishing time by 15-45 minutes, helping prevent "lost" finishes due to premature set. It makes the concrete surface denser and harder, improving long-term durability. It also slows vapor transmission and moisture movement through the hardened slab, extending curing, reducing curling, and reducing moisture-related problems.
DAY1 was introduced at World of Concrete 2013, where it won a Most Innovative Product (MIP) Editor’s Choice award in the Concrete Construction Materials category.
DAY1 is distributed in North America through the Solomon/Brickform network. It is sold as a concentrate.
