Our sodium silicates and lithium silicates are used in concrete floor harderners. When sprayed on a concrete surface, the silicate penetrates the calcium hydroxide-saturated bleed water channels and voids where it reacts with the free lime (calcium hydroxide) to form insoluble calcium silicate hydrates. These gels increase the treated concrete surface density, strength and durability. The result is a concrete floor which is more abrasion resistant, less dusting and easier to maintain. In addition to increased protection, floors treated with silicate based floor hardeners gain an attractive, glossy sheen over time.
We recommend to try our lithium silicates since they offer clear advantages compared to formulations based on standard sodium- and potassium silicates due to their lower alkalinity and viscosity. This results in silicate based hardeners that are safer, faster and easier to apply!
Tailor made products
Our liquid silicates can be adjusted regarding SiO2/Na2O ratio and solid content to meet the needs of your formulation. In our well equipped mixing division we are able to prepare your tailor-made silicate based concrete floor hardeners !
Increased Strength and Durability
Our silicates increase the treated concrete surface density, strength and durability. The result is a concrete floor which is more abrasion resistant, less dusting and easier to maintain.
Easy and Safe to handle
Silicate concrete floor hardeners are water-based. They are non-toxic, produce no emissions and are odor free. Cleanup is also easy since sodium- and lithium silicates are water soluble.
Silmaco is a family business with more than 30 years of experience in the production of high-quality and customized silicates. Our flexibility, focus on innovation and quality guarantees your company a carefree service and the most appropriate silicate for your application.
