NewLook International Inc. has introduced DriveHard, a concrete and masonry weatherproofer and fortifier.
The technology of DriveHard has been formulated to create a bond that permanently increases the life span of concrete and masonry. Its proprietary “nano-silicone/silicate” formula densifies, strengthens and makes the intended surface water-repellant by penetrating into and chemically reacting with the chemical properties of the substrate. DriveHard can be used to strengthen most concrete, masonry, brick or stucco surfaces, including driveways, patios, sidewalks, and architectural or exposed aggregate concrete.
DriveHard covers approximately 125 to 200 square feet per gallon and should be applied when the temperature is between 50 F and 90 F. Maximum strength and resistance will develop over several days. The treated area usually takes one to two hours to dry but can take longer depending on conditions. Restrict the use of the floor to light traffic and nonharsh chemicals for at least 24 hours.
DriveHard is not a sealer. It is recommended for use only as a concrete weatherproofer and densifier.
