Description

Hermetix is a colloidal silica-based densifier for polished concrete systems that transform ordinary concrete surfaces into exceptionally durable, attractive, colorful floors. Concrete surfaces benefit from the Hermetix densifier, displaying an attractive floor finish with exceptional durability. It is recommended for concrete floors where beauty, durability, and the use of environmentally friendly materials are important. Concrete surfaces treated with Hermetix densifier achieve stunning visual and functional rejuvenation transforming them into colorful and expressive wear surfaces.

How Hermetix Works

Densifiers that are used in concrete flooring are typically solutions of silicates that react with the calcium hydroxide that is produced during the cement hydration process. Sometimes called liquid hardeners, they impregnate the surface of a cured concrete slab with silica, the basic element of quartz. They essentially complete the hydration process by turning this material into calcium silicate hydrate (CSH), strengthening the concrete mix.

The colloidal silica in Hermetix is suspended in an aqueous phase and stabilized electrostatically. It is a concentrated mono-dispersion with particle sizes ranging from approximately 5 to 100 nanometers in diameter. The super-fine particle size distribution allows for rapid surface penetration. The irregular variations in the concrete surface make rapid bonding with calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)2] in the concrete possible. Hermetix can be applied to freshly-poured concrete slabs as soon as they set while the concrete is still wet. It will also perform brilliantly with concrete slabs that are decades old.

Features

  • Hermetix has more reactive sites, so it goes to work quickly, within 1-2 minutes
  • No brooming or working the material required
  • It penetrates deeply and reacts more efficiently.
  • No overnight curing required
  • No caustic gel to scrub off, nothing to dispose of! the only residue may be a small amount of safe powder that can be vacuumed off during the polishing phase
  • No whitening potential
  • Non-hazardous; zero VOC
  • Low pH (~8.7) — safe to handle
  • Does not trap free, migrating moisture in the concrete slab
  • Increases floor reflectivity, helping to reduce facility lighting and energy needs
  • Fills the pore structure of the surface layer, making it denser and harder
  • Increases stain and abrasion resistance
