How DensiCrete Works
Apply DensiCrete to concrete or any other cementitious-based product (such as roads, bridges, bridge abutments, airport taxiways, seawalls, swimming pools, floor slabs, stuccoed walls, parking garages, stadiums, arenas, auditoriums, limestone, gunite, plaster, stucco, cool decking, etc.) by using a mop, brush, roller, or garden-type sprayer (20 - 40 PSI). One gallon covers approximately 150 to 300 square feet, depending on the usage.
The DensiCrete chemical penetrates deeply into the concrete matrix; the depth of penetration is based on the amount of DensiCrete applied and the compressive strength of the concrete. Normally on 4,000 PSI concrete, one and a half to two coats of DensiCrete will penetrate to a depth of about 1 to 1 1/2" based on the absorption matrix of the concrete.
Once the DensiCrete has reached its maximum depth, it activates the unconverted alkali in the concrete and creates calcium silicate. The wetting and dispersion agents and the silicates in DensiCrete create a jell that slowly pushes out contaminates to the surface of the cementitious material.
As the DensiCrete reacts withe the free calcium, it's doing two things:
Sealing micro cracks and bonding the cementitious matrix by forming calcium silicate, curing itself, and waterproofing the matrix. Displacing and/or pushing out to the surface oils, salts, chlorides, carbonation, carbon-based fluids, and iron oxide caused by corroded rebar.
The final results are that DensiCrete creates a water seal but still allows concrete to breathe and remain hydrated, increases both compressive and flexural strength, seals micro cracks, densifies concrete, stops carbonation penetration and damage, protects rebar from corrosion, improves freeze-thaw resistance, removes chlorides (salt) from existing concrete, and significantly retards chloride penetration and damage.
DensiCrete is waterproof, nontoxic, nonflammable, water-based, zero-VOC, and environmentally friendly.

DensiCrete MUST be applied as per the manufacturer's parameters and procedures. IF DensiCrete is NOT applied by the proper procedures, the Distributor and or WICKTEK INC. (the Manufacturer) will NOT be responsible for the results and ANY Warranty whether WRITTEN, ACTUAL or IMPLIED will be NULL and VOID.
