ARMADILLO L is a proprietary blend of silica (Si) polymers which penetrate concrete surfaces providing an increase in abrasion resistance and a reduction in the surface absorption
The Lithium and Potassium silicates and siliconate compounds present in ARMADILLO L each play a unique role in identifying and sealing concrete.
The nano Lithium and Potassium Silicates in ARMADILLO L penetrates deep within the matrix and chemically reacts with calcium hydroxide (also known as portlandite) in the surface to produce calcium silicate hydrate (CSH) – the primary strength providing portion of concrete paste.
Portlandite is a soft, porous mineral that is subject to carbonation and chemical attack, so replacing it with the much stronger CSH is a major benefit of ARMADILLO L. The siliconate in ARMADILLO L also reacts with the concrete to form a hydrophobic polymer within the pores and on the concrete surface.
The ultimate result is a concrete floor that is exceptionally dense and liquid-repellent, which equals long-lasting protection and durability.
ARMADILLO L is water-based. It generally dries tack-free in 2 to 4 hours at 21C @ 50% RH.
