FLOOR HARDENER is a pre-blended, non-metallic floor hardener which
provides a durable, high strength, long wearing surface for any
concrete floor. Specially blended natural aggregates, Portland
cement and plasticizing agents assure easy trowelling and a dense,
hard concrete surface.
FLOOR HARDENER is recommended for interior and exterior concrete
floor surfaces where heavy traffic and high rates of abrasion,
impact and loading is expected. Typical applications include
parking structures, manufacturing plants, warehouses, schools,
loading docks, etc. FLOOR HARDENER reduces dusting and maintenance
costs, providing an easy to clean surface.
Hard, durable and abrasion resistant
Natural and custom colour
Resistant to oil, grease and mild chemicals
Reduced surface dusting and porosity
Ease of application
FLOOR HARDENER should be applied in two equal applications
(shakes), ensuring even distribution.
First Shake: Once the concrete is firm enough to support a worker
and equipment and no bleed water is present, power float the entire
area, bringing sufficient moisture to the surface. Apply the first
shake of FLOOR HARDENER, spreading evenly by hand. A straight edge
may be used to assist spreading. When FLOOR HARDENER becomes
dampened, power float the shake into the base slab surface. Avoid
excessive floating which may bury the hardener.
Second Shake: Apply second shake immediately after initial
floating. Spread shake evenly and repeat a final power float.Hand
floating is suitable for smaller areas.
Trowelling: Machine or hand trowel the surface to provide a smooth,
uniform surface. The desired finish texture may be altered with
various trowelling/floating techniques.
Curing and Sealing: Curing FLOOR HARDENER is recommended at all
times, using either moist curing techniques or conventional curing
compounds. Moist curing is not recommended with COLOURED FLOOR
HARDENER, membrane curing and sealing compounds may be applied.
Temperature: FLOOR HARDENER can be placed in a wide range of
temperatures, from 5-30 degree C. If space heaters are used, they
must be properly vented to avoid concrete surface damage due to

selected additives. Normal safety wear such as rubber gloves, dust
mask and safety glasses, used to handle conventional cement-based
products, should be worn.
