SPEKTRIN® Plus is a superior clear penetrating sealer that binds loose friable and porous mineral substrates. Penetrates 3-5 mm and consolidates, hardens and dust-binds. Increases compression strength of the concrete by as much as 25 %, and abrasion resistance about 2.5 times why virtually all abrasion dust is eliminated 100%. Easy and cost effective to apply. Zero-VOC, non-flammable, and safe to use.
The treatment is permanent and protects the under-lying substrate from detergents,motor oil, petrol, transmission fluid, solvents, de-icing chemicals and other common chemicals. Increasing the resistance to dirt why it makes cleaning easy.
The very good Sd-Value ensures optimum water vapour permeability why excess moisture can evaporate. Manufactured from a high-class organosilicon modified with 100% polymer resin in combination with a special surfactant for high penetration. The product has a CE-Marking.
Excellent in a wide range of commercial, industrial, agricultural and residential appli-cations. On floors as well as on walls. Including airports, balconies, basements, bridges, car parks, car washes, concrete bridges, driveways, harbour, parking decks, tunnels and other high traffic areas such as factory floors, storage/distribution areas, warehouses, workshops, etc.
As a high quality clear coating which provides superior performance on mineral sub-strates as concrete, plaster, etc. Also on former lime paints as it converts the surface into a natural hard ceramic-like coating (silicon dioxide). After the reaction it cannot peel or flake from substrate.
As an impregnator whose prime purpose is to provide dust-proofing, resistance to ab-rasion and freeze-thaw cycles on concrete. Or to provide a "key" s urface for further treatment as adhesion is remarkable increased. For use both indoors and out.

Substrates should be firm, free from laitance and clean. The surface must not be coated with any sealer or paint as product should be used on bare mineral substrates only. The surface should be vacuum cleaned followed by thoroughly cleaning with an alkaline cleaner as liquid soap (pH 10). Rinse and allow the surface to dry.
Apply wet-in-wet in a continuous film. Calculate with 10-150 ml per m2. Allow to soak in for 10 minutes and then brush 10-15 minutes to break surface tension and help product to better penetrate. Keep wet without any dry areas, and avoid puddles. Followed by a light misting with water, rescrub and squeegee off excess materials from the surface. The entire densification process takes 30-45 minutes.
If the concrete is very porous, or the original concrete mix appears like it was short ofcement (high in sand), another application may be required after 12 hours.
Accepts pedestrian floor traffic after 12 hours and light vehicles after 72 hours. One effect of the treatment is that smooth concrete after some months will get a soft gloss (shine) as satin. Which process can be accelerated by honing or polishing.
