Features and Advantages
Lythic Densifier XL can be applied to any new or cured concrete surface to increase hardness and abrasion resistance, and prevent dusting.
Lythic Densifier XL’s larger particle size can optimize performance on porous or deteriorated concrete. Lythic Densifier XL can be used in conjunction with Lythic Densifier and other Lythic products as described in Section 014 of the TIS found under the literature tab.
Lythic Densifier XL works well with colored concrete, minimizing efflorescence that can dull color. Unlike some silicate densifiers that can contribute to alkali-silica reaction (ASR), Lythic Densifier XL reduces the risk of ASR.
Because it bonds to silica in cementitious materials, Lythic Densifier XL can work with low-lime decorative cementitious overlays that do not react well with sodium, lithium, or potassium silicate densifiers, although porosity is usually not a problem with these overlays.
Unlike silicate densifiers, Lythic Densifier XL contains no significant proportion of mineral salts that can discolor concrete. It is fast-reacting, and does not require scrubbing-in or extensive reacting time. There is nothing to scrub off and no hazardous waste disposal.
