Sika Purigo 5 S Concrete Dust Proofer 20ltr
CONCRETE DUSTPROOFER AND SURFACE HARDENER
Sika® Purigo-5 S (NZ) is an economical, easy to use surface hardener and dustproofer for concrete floors. It is a liquid based on ‘activated’ sodium silicate which reacts chemically with calcium hydroxide in the concrete to bind up and tighten the top surface, producing a hard, dust free finish.
Sika® Purigo-5 S (NZ) can also be used to assist with curing of newly laid concrete surfaces. The microcrystalline sealing action of Sika® Purigo-5 S (NZ) binds up the surface pores. This reduces the evaporation of moisture from the concrete and thus helps to assist in better hydration of the cement
Sika® Purigo-5 S (NZ) is an efficient, economic product for use on concrete floors to prevent surface dusting from occurring. It will not, however, make bad disintegrating concrete good. Examples of flooring situations that would gain beneficial effect from the use of Sika® Purigo-5 S (NZ) are:
▪ Warehouses and storage facilities
▪ Factories and assembly plants
▪ Carpark decks
Sika® Purigo-5 S (NZ) can be used to assist with the curing of concrete in vertical or horizontal situations where traditional methods are impractical, or subsequent coatings are to be applied which preclude the use of membrane type curing compounds.
