Prosoco DensiKure combines the chemistries that densify and harden concrete with ones that cure concrete, eliminating the normal wait times between the two steps while the concrete hardens, dries and cures.
By forming a membrane on the surface of new concrete, DensiKure locks in moisture to enable a complete cure. Treated concrete floors are typically dry in 60 minutes.
While the new product will be available via traditional distribution outlets, Prosoco designed it primarily for large square footage projects like new warehouses and distribution centers.
According to Nick Savage, head of Prosoco’s Concrete Flooring Group, the biggest advantage of DensiKure in the field is labor and time savings.
“Typically, when an early application of a densifier is allowed, you go in, clean the slab, apply a densifier, wait for it to dry and then come back and apply a cure,” he says. “Or you put a cure down, wait 28 days for the concrete to cure, then you remove the cure and apply a densifier.”
“DensiKure saves you a trip around the building. You apply it once with a pump-up sprayer and micro-fiber pad or soft-bristle broom, let it dry, and you’ve got a densified and cured concrete surface.”
A single-source densifier and cure, DensiKure helps a new concrete slab retain the moisture it needs to properly cure, and prevents water getting out of the concrete too quickly via vapor transmission.
“If there’s too much transmission too quickly, that’s where you get cracking and weakened slabs,” Savage says.
DensiKure also leaves several options open for building owners who wish to do something different on the floor in the future.
“If they want to come back and do something later, such as polish the floor, DensiKure is easy to remove,” Savage adds.
