EFFLOCK TT Topical Efflorescence Treatment
Category: Coatings - mineral surfaces

An efflorescence-curing topical treatment for existing concrete and masonry surfaces. Using the same nano-fusion chemistry as its admixture counterparts, EffLock TT penetrates deep into porous concrete to bind sodium and help prevents further efflorescence. Remove existing efflorescence with EffLock Efflorescence Remover before treating concrete with EffLock TT.

Typical Use:

Used on existing concrete, block, stucco, masonry surfaces.  Primary applications include brick, concrete, block, stone, stucco, poured-in-place, pre-cast and any other cementations products.

Apparent use of Nanotechnology: unspecified nanoparticles in solution
Reason for Inclusion:

“CHEMISTRY: NewLook’s EFFLOCK TT is a chemically engineered water-based solution containing nano-binding composites that react with impurities such as calcium and mineral based salt that can be found in mortar mixes, cement products and aggregates. This reaction binds these impurities permanently and prevents efflorescence salt from leaching out to the surface. The nanotechnology of EFFLOCK’s chemistry is approximately 100,000 times smaller than even the smallest cement particle.” -Retrieved 1/2/2015

EFFLOCK TT is packaged ready to use. Simply, shake the container or mix well to ensure a consistent suspension of all nano-particles throughout the solution." (see Technical Data Sheet via product link)
