@EKIF;L:K@FENorton Construction Products patented Pentra – Sil Liquid Hardener uses exclusive lithium chemistry to make the best concrete hardener and densifier available today. Concrete is exposed to harsh chemical, mechanical, and atmospheric elements that can cause the concrete to deteriorate. Pentra – Sil penetrates into the substrate where it reacts with weak calcium hydroxide to form stronger and more stable tricalcium silicate hydrate. The lithium component is also effective in mitigating and preventing damaging alkali-silica reactions. It is a colourless transparent liquid that penetrates concrete, protecting, preserving and strengthening it. It does this by penetrating the surface and solidifying the components of the concrete into one solid mass. Typical application for high trafﬁc distribution centre. Sealing, dustprooﬁng, hardening & cleanability.
=FIN8I;• ASR Protection - It contains Lithium, the only chemical hardener that can help mitigate and prevent damaging alkali- silica reactions (ASR) in concrete.
• It seals the concrete – micro channels in concrete are sealed against water and chemical attack
• It hardens the concrete – approximately 40% harder than non-treated concrete and more abrasion resistant
• It dust proofs – creating a cleaner, healthier environment
• Permanent – one penetrating application is all that is needed. No coating to peel, chip or wear off.
• Easy maintenance – makes cleaning easier and reduces
