Breakthrough in Placing Concrete

Breakthrough in Placing Concrete



This New Technology unique to the market utilizing Colloidal Silica provides clients with options for concrete floor finishing currently not available. With Colloidal Silica technology, the options for floor finishes increases while the cost reduces.

Armourtech Floor PRO FLOAT produces dust proofed, abrasion resistant concrete

Armourtech Floor PRO FLOAT
provides the option of a sheen/gloss finish

Armourtech Floor PRO FLOAT
provides the Placer savings in Placing concrete

Benefits to the Placer include the following:

the need for extra water

Increases surface compressive strength approximately 20% ? 30%

finishing – no sheeting or setting up sprinklers etc

operator fatigue and trowel wear and reduces Labour costs

surface work ability time by 15 to 30 minutes Helps finishing in hot, dry, sunny & windy conditions

BUT wait there’s More!

Reduces the ability for liquids to penetrate the surface
Strengthens (hardens and Densifies) surface
Increases impact, abrasion and wear resistance
Provides quicker access to the surface.
No membrane is formed that requires removing
Reduces efflorescence on both coloured & standard concrete
Minimizes checking, crazing & scaling
Decreases potential for alkali silica reaction ? (ASR)
Reduces potential for slab curling
Produces cleaner finish if polished concrete is intended.
Provides a cleaner saw cut
Extends surface work ability time by 15 to 30 minutes

As the Colloidal Silica Bonds to itself and is the only product that has these properties it offers the opportunity to provide options for decorative finishes including a package solution for concrete floors – Placing and Finishing at reduced costs and time savings.


Proven to meet the water-retention requirements of ASTM C156
Independent laboratory testing confirms that PRO FLOAT exceeds ASTM C156
Meets the moisture retention requirements of ASTMC309 or AS3799
Reduces Water Vapor Transmission as Per ASTM F1869 ? (MVER)
Mitigates Volume of Water Vapors as Per ASTM D 4263
Third-party tested to mitigate potential for ASR pop-outs
Eliminates the need for added water- hence reducing cement water ratio
