Lowest cost concrete densifier is the best value

Concrete densifiers are hot topic in the world of concrete today. Polishing is now the # 1 treatment to new and existing concrete slabs replacing coatings and other concrete surface toppings. One of the key wet ingredients in any polishing system is densifier. Densifier reacts with elements of the concrete surface, strenghthening the surface, making it less likely to fail under heavy traffic and impact.

There are many concrete densifiers available on the market. Lithium based densifier has replaced sodium and potassium formulas as the lithium formulas limit salt residue from congregating at the surface. Surprisingly, most studies show that there is little difference among the top 4 or 5 products supplied. These leading manufacturers lay claim to having the most lithium or the deepest penetration. Most of these claims are marketing hype, designed to grab your attention.

Experts agree, when choosing densifier use these filters:
  1. Choose brands that make technical data readily available
  2. Buy direct from the manufacturer vs. a distribution company
  3. Compare the claims of the top suppliers (CLICK HERE FOR DIRECTORY)
  4. When in doubt, test the product yourself
