Lythic Densifier - Concrete Densifier and Hardener
Category: Coatings - mineral surfaces

The mission of a densifier is adding silica to the surface of concrete.  Lythic Densifier with Reactive Colloidal Silica is 99.5% pure silica, suspended by charge repulsion in an ultra-low surface tension liquid by a proprietary, “green” manufacturing process.  It increases the density of the concrete surface, making it less permeable to liquids.  It increases the surface hardness, making it withstand abrasion and take a better polish.

Typical Use:

applied to any new or cured concrete surfaces to increase hardness and abrasion resistance, and prevent dusting

Apparent use of Nanotechnology: amorphous silica containing nano-sized silica particles
Reason for Inclusion:

"Lythic’s nano-sized silica particles react highly effectively with lime in concrete, and bond directly to silica already in the slab. Reactive Colloidal Silica even bonds to and hardens decorative cementitious overlays that are low-lime and do not react with silicate densifiers."
