DESCRIPTION

ARMADILLO LK is a proprietary blend of silica (Si) polymers which penetrate concrete surfaces providing an increase in abrasion resistance and a reduction in the surface absorption of liquids. 

The Lithium & Potassium silicates and siliconate compounds present in ARMADILLO LK each play a unique role in densifying and sealing concrete. 

The nano Lithium  & Potassium Silicates in ARMADILLO LK penetrates deep within the matrix and chemically reacts with calcium hydroxide (also known as portlandite) in the surface to produce calcium silicate hydrate (CSH) – the primary strength-providing portion of concrete paste.  

Portlandite is a soft, porous mineral that is subject to carbonation and chemical attack, so replacing it with the much stronger CSH is a major benefit of ARMADILLO LK. 

The siliconate in ARMADILLO LK also reacts with the concrete to form a hydrophobic polymer within the pores and on the concrete surface. 

The ultimate result is a concrete floor that is exceptionally dense and liquid-repellent, which equals long-lasting protection and durability.

ARMADILLO LK is water based. It generally dries tack free in 2 to 4 hours at 21C @ 50% RH.


PRIMARY APPLICATIONS

Interior or exterior

Warehouse floors

Commercial floors

Manufacturing plants

Residential garages and basements

Distribution centers   


ADVANTAGES OF USE

Combines with the concrete becoming part of the matrix and lasts the lifetime of the substrate.

VOC Compliance with GREEN STAR- OFFICE DESIGN V3 IEQ-13

Resists penetration of oil and many chemicals

Reduces the ingress of carbon dioxide and resulting carbonation (degradation of the substrate)

Minimizes tyre marks and enables them to be more easily removed

Equipment can be cleaned with water

Can be applied to fresh, new, or existing concrete

Low sheen enhances the appearance of concrete surface

Will not blush 

Buffable
