New product spotlight: SS ColorSystem

Unlike clear densifier, Nelson says you need to wait 28 days to use the colored densifier — you want more of the free water to have hydrated out of the concrete before application.For many years, customers have been asking SealSource LLC for a densifier with color. As company CEO Kym Nelson reports, they may be the first company to offer a densifier that includes coloring pigments: SS ColorSystem, a penetrating, chemical densifier available in a wide range of colors.

Nelson explains it is a colloidal silicate-based product. “We went with this structure for the deeper penetration. The color molecules are larger, so you want the hardener molecules to take the pigment as deep as possible — it was the perfect carrier.”

She describes SS ColorSystem as having much more vibrant and consistent color than acid stains, and as being easier to apply. It also provides more consistent color than integrally colored concrete, and is more economical.

Unlike clear densifier, Nelson says you need to wait 28 days to use the colored densifier — you want more of the free water to have hydrated out of the concrete before application. But, she says, most companies will wait, making time for the unique benefits.

SS ColorSystem cures overnight, so downtime is minimal for application. And the colors are UV stable, so the product is good indoors and out.Penetration of the color pigment averages 1/8 inch. The hardener penetrates, on average, to the same depth or deeper. The system is water-based and environmentally friendly.
