Lythic Day1
Category: Coatings - mineral surfaces

Day1 is a finishing aid that lubricates the surface for faster, easier finishing. Day1 can also extend workable time by 15 to 30 minutes, even under adverse conditions such as high wind, heat, or low humidity. Day1 eliminates the need to add water to the surface which can be detrimental to the surface performance of the slab. It can also be used to help finish shake on hardeners in low bleedwater environments. Day1 is a safety net, giving finishers more time on the slab.

Typical Use:

Day1, applied during finishing, provides a number long term of benefits to cured concrete, as well. Day1 has been shown to reduce surface evaporation, mitigating and reducing slab curling and differential shrinkage. Day1 also has densification properties and reduces efflorescence in colored and standard concrete.
