SL Floor Hardener is a specially formulated mixture of Portland cement, selected and screened natural raw materials and light, fast, organic pigments. The Africote Floor Hardener is applied by ‘Dry Shake’ method over semi-dry screed and hardens to a rustic and more marbled finish. SL Floor Hardener colours the top layer of a screed. This creates a hard-wearing skin, that is smooth to the touch once cured and sealed. It provides a seamless floor finish. The screed does, however, require expansion joints, as with any concrete screed. Sealing of the floor with Africote Twin Pack Polyurethane sealer, will enhance the colour of the floor and aid in floor maintenance and assist in preventing possible stains.

TAL X-Tech Integrafloor

X-Tech IntegraFloor range is a premixed non-rusting floor hardener used to form a monolithically hardened concrete floor. It produces an abrasion-resistant and hard-wearing surface and is applied by the “shake on” technique.

Sikafloor® CureHard-24

Sikafloor® CureHard-24 is a high solid, one part, clear sodium silicate-based liquid to cure, harden and seal fresh or hardened concrete.

USE

  • Horizontal old or new concrete surfaces.
  • Hard surface with light to moderate abrasion resistance.
  • On concrete slabs where no specific curing efficiency or standards are required.
  • Suitable for interior or exterior applications.
  • Dust-proofing of prefabricated concrete elements.
