I have trial finished floors in my shop. What steps should i take to ensure my best results?
You will need to power wash, etch or grind the floor prior to application. Power troweled concrete is too smooth to accept the densifier.
We have a customer with a 1.5 yr old 2700 sq ft brushed concrete drive and pads. In KY we have salts on roadways in winter. Which concentrate would be best and economical say for 5 yr protection?
I would say the 8505 but they are behind in production, so 8510 would be your best bet currently.
I just had new concrete poured, it is very smooth, do I need the 4500 with the 8510, or just the 8510, they also sprayed it with cure and seal, with this work over that okay, thank you.
The cure and seal will need to be removed for the sealer to penetrate. Without removing that layer, the sealer will not do what you need to to.
If the concrete is smooth, you will need to etch or grind the concrete to open the pores.
For the 4500, this is not mandatory, but for best results, we do suggest using the 4500 to densify the concrete 7 days prior to the application of the 8510.
I have a 30+ year old driveway that is shedding surface particles (dust). The concrete is solid and not failing otherwise, and I want to seal it, so it stops shedding the dust particles. Which (if any) Ghost Shield product do you recommend to seal the dust? Thanks for your help!
I would recommend lithi-tek 9500
This will act as a densifier and the siliconates will react with the concrete to reduce the dusting you are seeing.
How much for 1200 SQ foot shop would I need?
1200 feet would need about 1.5 gallons , so you would need to order 2 gallons total.
Is Lithi-Tech 4500 oil or water based?
Litho-tek 4500 is a water based concentrate.
