Colloidal Silica-Based Troweling Aid image

Colloidal Silica-Based Troweling Aid - LYTHIC DAY 1

Lythic Day1 is a colloidal silica-based compound that acts as a trowling aid, curing agent, and a substituted for a membrane-forming curing compound. It is shipped as a concentrate and diluted with water at a 4:1 ratio to make a working solution with a coverage of approximately 1000sf/gal. The solution is spray-applied to freshly laid concrete before it is worked by the power-trowel. Lythic Day1 reacted with the calcium hydroxide in the concrete to form additional CSH, becoming a permanent part of the slab surface. It does not form a film or membrane and reduces drag, increasing the speed of the power-trowel.
Surface Deactivator image

Surface Deactivator

Surface Deactivator makes exposed aggregate finishes easier and more consistent. It is topically applied to freshly-placed concrete to prevent cement paste hardening and achieve more controlled exposed aggregate finishes. Unlike sugar-based retarders, Surface Deactivator selectively halts the hydration process down to a controlled depth, allowing a more certain level of retardation. Ten predetermined color-coded exposure depths are available to provide consistent, repeatable cement paste removal and aggregate reveal. Surface Deactivator provides a longer window before the surface paste must be removed, allowing underlying concrete to harden properly, locking in aggregate, and reducing pop-outs. Surface Deactivator is water-soluble for easy removal with high pressure water washing and scrubbing equipment.
Granular Color image

Granular Color - ColorFlo SG

Solomon ColorFlo SG is a free flowing, low dusting granular pigment that provides outstanding color strength for concrete. ColorFlo SG is manufactured from high quality Iron Oxide Pigments (Yellow, Red and Black), Chromium Oxide (Green) and Titanium Dioxide (White).

All Pigments used to manufacture ColorFlo SG meet or surpass the requirements of ASTM C979-05 including water wettability, alkali resistance, curing stability, and lightfastness.

Fiber Reinforcement image

Fiber Reinforcement

Fiber reinforcement is a must for nearly any concrete project. Used as a supplement or replacement for traditional reinforcement such as rebar, it can greatly improve the strength and durability of the concrete. This is especially true with UltraFiber natural cellulose fiber. UltraFiber cellulose fiber offers a host of benefits ranging from improved finishability and color acceptance to better bonding, dispersion, and crack control. UltraFiber and UltraFiber blends are the superior fiber reinforcement choice.

Fiber Reinforcement - ULTRAFIBER 302 BLEND

Advantages of UltraFiber 302 Fiber Blend: ACI 302 recognizes the benefits of using a natural cellulose micro fiber and steel fiber blend to reduce early age plastic shrinkage and provide long term crack control. Additionally, this fiber blend improves the tensile strength/capacity of the concrete. The UltraFiber 302 Blend can replace traditional continuous steel for temperature and shrinkage reinforcement. UltraFiber 500 is the fiber of choice for decorative concrete and a proven performer reducing plastic drying shrinkage in residential, light commercial, overlays and structurally reinforced concrete. CFS 150-5 steel fibers have long been a solution for longer term concrete crack control and added tensile capacity in the same applications. Combining these two fibers creates "peace of mind" in overlays and traditional 4" to 6" building slabs and pavement designs within ACI joint guidelines.
