Concrete Finishing & Floor Polishing
Potassium Silicate for Flooring
Noble Silicates starting from high-end lithium based silicates to economical sodium silicates are usually used in various concrete and finishing applications. We also manufacture and export the best quality potassium silicate for flooring and concrete finishing to various countries.
For polishing concrete floors potassium silicate liquid and other silicates are frequently used to reduce dust formation and increase the durability of the surface.
Application of silicates produces calcium-silicate-hydrate, which fills the pores to densify the concrete floors thereby decreasing the porosity and increasing the strength. Silicates can be applied to existing and new concrete.
As silicates are hydrophobic in nature, a thin coat on general masonry or unpainted plaster will work as a waterproofing treatment plaster.
Oleophobic characteristic of silicates protects the concrete from ill effects of grease & oil spillage in automobile workshops.
Adding potassium silicate for flooring to concrete admixtures accelerates the hydration and reduces the setting time. Construction of building foundations, underground tunnels and railroads are the biggest examples of usage of silicates.
Unlike epoxy’s & other coatings, different silicates like potassium silicate liquid for concrete floor layers have many attributes like :
- Easy application,
- Quick drying
- No maintenance
- Very Easy to clean
