WATERPROOFING ADDITIVE CONCENTRATE FOR SILICATES
HG120WP is an HYDROPHOBIC agent in water, concentrated, colorless emulsion, capable of developing a high water repellent performance of concrete surfaces and absorbent mineral building materials.
Added to 10% in silicates/consolidators
Lithium or Sodium/Potassium base, besides the benefits that they perform, it makes the treated surfaces, water repellent with pearly effect. Particularly suitable for the “Concrete Hardener” line:
Concrete Hardener H10 – H35
Concrete Hardener Lithium
Concrete Hardener Lithium Pro
Added to 10%
To implement performances in common water base alkaline sealants for concrete substrate dust treatments. Used on interior, external, new or existing concrete or concrete surfaces that require waterproofing without altering their breathability or affecting the appearance.
As a direct water repellent:
If diluted at 5-10% in water only, it is an excellent hydrophobic and protective water repellent for all types of concrete absorbent materials, tombs and bricks exposed to the action of water:
Prefabricated panels or exposed concrete blocks.
Limestone and natural stones in general.
Suitable on dispersion coatings and varnishes.
Compatible with all water base systems.
Provides hydro repellence to organic and inorganic alkaline water products.
It does not create film and does not compromise the breathability of the surface.
Reduces the absorption of liquid water (better waterproofness) without altering the passage of water vapor.
Increased resistance to chemical attacks, salts and pollutants dissolved in water and stains by decreasing the dirt pick up.
Decreases the risk of alkaliaggregate reactions (ASRs).
Prevents the formation of efflorescences, from rising damp.
Improves resistance to vegetable oil and mineral oil stains.
HG120 WP Application
HG120WP AS AN ADDITIVE TO CONCRETE HARDENER H10:
Shake HG120 before use and add it while mixing to the extent of 10% to the ready-to use silicate “Concrete Hardener H10”.
HG120WP AS AN ADDITIVE TO CONCRETE HARDENER H35:
Dilute Beton Hardener H35 with water in their corresponding mixing ratio of 1:2. Shake HG120 before use and add it while mixing to the extent of 10% to the diluted “Beton Hardener H35” silicate.
HG120WP AS AN ADDITIVE TO CONCRETE HARDENER LITHIUM:
Shake before use and add it to the Concrete Hardener Lithium while mixing, to the extent of 10%.
PROPERTY OF THE CONCRETE HARDENER H10-H35-LITHIUM MODIFIED:
Adding HG120 to the Concrete HARDENER you obtain a permanent WATER BASED protective, CONSOLIDATING, HARDENING, WATER REPELLENT, transparent and odorless, for concrete and cement-based surfaces in general.
This particular molecule, penetrating into the substrate, it reacts chemically to form sealed breathable capillaries, making harder, more wear resistant, less absorbent to liquid water repellent, ultimately brings support to its maximum useful life.
The concrete improves significantly, in appearance and in technical characteristics, with surface treatment Concrete HARDENER MODIFIED. It penetrates through the pores of the concrete, reacting chemically with the Ca(OH)2, forming a silicate calcium gel.
The saturated pores, in addition to improving the aesthetics, drastically reduces the water permeability (with the exception of steam), increasing the surface hardness, the durability of the concrete and in particular the resistance to acid corrosion. By allowing moisture to escape, the risk of frost and other damage is avoided.
IMPREGNATION OF CONCRETE FLOORS, SURFACES INTERNAL, EXTERNAL CONCRETE OR CEMENT
The Concrete HARDENER penetrates the concrete pores: from the first application it completely fills all pores including the capillaries, reacting with the ions Ca++ that are in the hardened concrete, forming a silicate calcium gel resistant to water and other liquids, according to the reaction: Ca- SinO2n-1 -> CaO -SinO2n-1. This reaction occurs inside the concrete pores. The ca-silicato gel clogs the porosities, making the cement waterproof to liquids and at the same time harder, more resistant to wear, insensitive to carbonation and more resistant to the aggressive action of chlorine.
The use of the Concrete HARDENER Lithium version, in contact with metals, forms monomolecular films of metallic silicates, impervious to oxygen and acids and therefore acts as anticorrosive. In order to provide maximum performance to the concrete surface, we recommend the use of the modified Lithium version, which is able to penetrate into the capillaries of the concrete thanks to its low viscosity and especially low surface tension that sets it apart from other products that you can find on the market. Thanks to its features, the Concrete HARDENER Lithium -HG120 penetrates deeper and allows you to achieve excellent waterproofing.
AREAS OF APPLICATION:
Built-in treatment for cement floor saturation. Internal, external, new or existing concrete or Cement based surfaces that need to implement abrasion resistance and hardness, resistance to liquids, without altering their breathability, offering a stable aesthetic quality.
Particularly suitable for high-density concrete.
HG120 WP THE ADVANTAGES
Floors treated with Concrete Hardener lithium WP obtain: water repellency, increase hardness, higher resistance to scratches, high resistance to chemical agents, anti-allergic surface, increase brilliance.
Deep saturation, thanks to a low surface tension.
Reduces the absorption of liquid without altering the passage of water vapor.
Increased resistance to chemical, stains and dirt.
Very useful to protect the surface from tire tracks or rubber wheels like forklifts.
Decreases the risk of alkaliaggregate reactions (ASR).
Protects against contaminations from mineral and vegetable oils.
Protects against penetration and aggression of chloride ions.
Internal cohesion reaction with the concrete increases the resistance to compression and abrasion.
In case of concrete color reatment with Concrete Color Dye, it protects the applied color by slightly intensifying the color and gloss.
After a few hours from the treatment the area is ready to be used, but bear in mind that the reaction is completed within 2 weeks.
