          2.2LIQUID DENSIFIER AND HARDENERS
 
          A.Liquid Densifier and Hardener: Penetrating chemical compound that reacts with concrete, filling the pores and dustproofing; for application to concrete after set.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** PS103 is a lithium silicate solution designed to harden and increase surface strength, reduce dusting, and restrict moisture absorption for most unsealed concrete and masonry surfaces. It is an ideal treatment for machine troweled, burnished, or polished concrete surfaces. The sealer reacts with a cementitious surface to densify and restrict moisture while allowing deep penetration to chemically harden and fortify the substrate. After the chemical reaction occurs, the substrate will be more abrasion resistant with increased protection of the surface from wear, moisture, dust, and efflorescence while remaining breathable. PS103 has a clear appearance. Upon proper application, the substrate will have little, or no, noticeable change in appearance when dry. However, a polished appearance can normally be imparted to burnished or polished surfaces by applying with scrubber or polisher and then buffing with a white pad. Delete if not required.

          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** PS104 is a lithium silicate solution with a siliconate water and salt repellent that is designed to harden and increase surface strength, reduce dusting, and improve water and salt resistance for most unsealed concrete and masonry surfaces. It is an ideal treatment for machine troweled, burnished, or polished concrete surfaces. The sealer reacts with a cementitious surface to densify and add water and salt repellency while allowing deep penetration to chemically harden and fortify the substrate. PS104 limits dirt build up, deep staining, and makes surfaces easier to clean and maintain. After the chemical reaction occurs, the substrate will be more abrasion resistant with increased protection of the surface from wear, moisture, dust, efflorescence, dirt, deep stains, mold and mildew, and salts and deicing chemicals while remaining breathable. PS104 has a clear appearance. Upon proper application, the substrate will have little, or no, noticeable change in appearance when dry. However, a polished appearance can normally be imparted to burnished or polished surfaces by applying with scrubber or polisher and then buffing with a white pad. Delete if not required.

          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** PS107 is an economical, water based 100 Percent active sodium silicate solution that penetrates into an unsealed cementitious surface to increase density, hardness, and strength of the concrete while retaining its breathability. These properties restrict moisture absorption, reduce dusting, protect against efflorescence, and lower the maintenance of the surface. It is an ideal treatment for machine troweled, burnished, or polished concrete surfaces. PS107 penetrates deeply into the surface filling the pores and capillaries of the concrete and reacting with the free lime and calcium hydroxide therefore yielding a protected, hardened, and dense floor. Sealer is VOC compliant, non-flammable and has odorless formula for safe indoor use. Sealer provides excellent non-slip, high traction properties, resulting in a safer floor surface. Yields UV stable surface with improved resistance to abrasion and scuffing. PS107 has a clear appearance. Upon proper allocation, the substrate will have little, or no, noticeable change in appearance when dry. However, a polished appearance can normally be imparted to burnished or polished surfaces by applying with scrubber or polisher and then buffing with a white pad. Delete if not required.

The TS202 can also be used to mitigate dusting on most existing concrete surfaces. It is also UV resistant and nonyellowing. It can also be used as a joint sand stabilizer for interlocking stone, pavers, and brick. It locks pavers in place, prevents erosion of joint sand, and reduces growth of weeds. TS202 has a milky white appearance. Upon proper application, the substrate will have a "satin look" with low gloss finish when dry. Delete if not required.

          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** TS210 is an environmentally friendly, two component, water based, odorless, low VOC, high performance proprietary acrylic modified aliphatic polyurethane. It is ideal for most smooth troweled porous cementitious surfaces where oil repellence, stain resistance and cleanability are needed. It was developed using the latest advances in polyurethane polymer nanotechnology and also incorporates a new generation of polyacrylate dispersions. This state of the art formulation provides for a highly crosslinked coating that allows for both maximum penetration and superior chemical adhesion to minimally profiled cementitious surfaces. Unlike more traditional coatings, this sealer when properly applied, is not susceptible to lifting, peeling, or delaminating due to the very strong covalent bonds it forms with surfaces. The low molecular weight of the TS210 also results in an ultra-thin protective coating that is breathable but, at the same time, provides an extremely hard, durable, and abrasion resistant surface. The product is also resistant to hot tire pickup. The product offers exceptional 24-hour chemical and stain resistance to most common contaminants including oil, grease, water, salts and deicing chemicals, and most common food items. The product can also help reduce dirt build up, mold and mildew, dusting, efflorescence, freeze/ thaw damage, and scaling and spalling. The TS210 is UV resistant and will not break down or yellow in the presence of UV rays. The TS210 does not materially alter the appearance of surfaces and is ideal for maintaining more of a natural look or "matte" finish. With the thin application rates and high coverage rates for this product, the sealer makes for a very cost effective solution when compared to more costly high build coating alternatives like epoxies, epoxy/ urethane combinations, polyureas, and polyaspartics. The TS210 also serves as a more durable alternative to traditional acrylic sealers. Delete if not required.

          A.Penetrating Sealer: Transparent, non-yellowing, water- or solvent based coating.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** PS100 is a high performance specially formulated proprietary, water based, fluorinated protective surface treatment. It combines both hydrophobic and oleophobic characteristics to offer "Best in Class" performance for a penetrating sealer. Level of protection is typically only surpassed through use of topical sealers/ coatings. Use when maximum protection is needed but topical sealers/ coatings are not desired. PS100 penetrates into the micro pores and capillaries of unsealed dense surfaces and physically and chemically bonds to substrates to offer durable and long lasting protection. Using state of the art nanotechnology, maximum penetration is achieved due to its small molecular structure and very low surface tension. PS100 is based on short chain fluor chemistry which meets the goal of the US EPA PFOA Stewardship Program. It provides superior water, oil, and salt repellency. It also offers excellent "hold out" and stain resistance for oil and grease, dirt buildup, most food
 
          B.stains, and other common contaminants. In addition, PS100 combats freeze/ thaw damage, scaling and spalling, deicing chemicals, efflorescence, and mold/ mildew. Makes easier to clean and maintain and keeps surfaces looking cleaner for longer. It is VOC compliant, breathable, nonflammable, low odor, and UV resistant. It is non film forming, will not peel or delaminate, and maintains the traction coefficient of a surface. The PS100 is a "natural look" penetrating sealer that does not normally change the appearance of a surface. For best results, use on interior surfaces such as machine troweled, burnished, polished concrete, or other smooth, dense but yet porous concrete and porous natural stone that are subject to accidental spills.

          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** PS107 is an economical, water based 100 Percent active sodium silicate solution that penetrates into an unsealed cementitious surface to increase density, hardness, and strength of the concrete while retaining its breathability. These properties restrict moisture absorption, reduce dusting, protect against efflorescence, and lower the maintenance of the surface. It is an ideal treatment for machine troweled, burnished, or polished concrete surfaces. PS107 penetrates deeply into the surface filling the pores and capillaries of the concrete and reacting with the free lime and calcium hydroxide therefore yielding a protected, hardened, and dense floor. Sealer is VOC compliant, non-flammable and has odorless formula for safe indoor use. Sealer provides excellent non-slip, high traction properties, resulting in a safer floor surface. Yields UV stable surface with improved resistance to abrasion and scuffing. PS107 has a clear appearance. Upon proper allocation, the substrate will have little, or no, noticeable change in appearance when dry. However, a polished appearance can normally be imparted to burnished or polished surfaces by applying with scrubber or polisher and then buffing with a white pad. Delete if not required.

          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** PS109 is a penetrating, 100 Percent chemically reactive solvent based alkyltrialkoxysilane which repels water and moisture from concrete and masonry offering invisible protection and a low VOC. At only 5 angstroms, its small particle size makes it ideal for very dense substrates made of high performance concrete such as cast in place, poured in place, and reinforced surfaces. It penetrates deeply and chemically reacts with unsealed concrete and masonry components for long lasting protection. PS109 seals pores and capillaries of substrates restricting liquid and moisture absorption while allowing excellent vapor transmission. It combats efflorescence, freeze/thaw damage, deicing chemicals, acid rain deterioration, salt intrusion, UV damage, scaling and spalling, dirt buildup and deep staining, mold and mildew, alkali attack, and corrosion of reinforcing steel. It is designed to provide a high level protection against wind driven rains. The PS109 is non-etching and will not harm uncoated glass windows, metal frames, or painted surfaces and leaves no residue to clean. It is also UV resistant and nonyellowing. PS109 has a clear appearance. Upon proper application, the substrate will have little, or no, noticeable change in appearance when dry. Delete if not required.
