SCOFIELD Formula One Lithium Densifier MP gives you a more cost-effective way to provide longer life to colored architectural ground and polished concrete floors in schools, hospitals, government buildings, retail stores, shopping centers and restaurants. It contains the optimal solids content required to deliver the best penetration and reactivity: a higher-solids-content formulation that is designed to be diluted 1:1 with potable water.
This concentrated formula means you get TWICE the usable densifier in every container of SCOFIELD® Formula One Lithium Densifier MP. For softer or more porous concrete SCOFIELD® Formula One Lithium Densifier MP can be used full strength.
SCOFIELD Formula One Lithium Densifier MP is a VOC free concrete densifier formulated to deeply penetrate and quickly react with concrete components. It will harden, densify, and increase the abrasion resistance of cementitious surfaces. Based on a blend of lithium silicate and surface tension modifiers, it deeply penetrates into concrete pores easier than competitive products. It reacts with cement, pozzolans, and most aggregates to fill microvoids and allow concrete to polish faster while improving water and stain resistance. It is not a coating, and will not crack, peel, or delaminate from surfaces. It can be used full strength or diluted to meet specific.
Coverage: The application rate of SCOFIELD Formula One Lithium Densi- fier MP is largely determined by the porosity of the concrete at the time of treatment. The porosity of the concrete will also determine the dilution rate as described in the paragraph below. Concrete must be over 28 days old prior to the applica- tion of SCOFIELD Formula One Lithium Densifier MP. Steel troweled, normally porous concrete or concrete ground to a 80–200 grit surface profile will typically require an application rate of 200–400 square feet per gallon (5–10 m2/L) undiluted.
Ground and polished concrete is a mechanical process of cutting or honing an existing interior concrete slab, adding dye (if desired) and a densifier, a guard or finish coat, and then polishing to the desired level of gloss. Densifying products are used to harden the surface by filling the naturally existing surface pores with additional calcium silicate hydrate (CSH), a naturally occurring mineral in concrete that gives concrete its strength. Over the last decade, this tough, low-maintenance flooring system has entered the architectural mainstream.
