Silane / Epoxy24/01/2020
Silane has got to be the miracle product of the last couple of years. We have always loved Polished Concrete because it is without dought the most cost effective flooring solution. The only draw back with Polished Concrete is that it is slightly porous and so is not suitable for rough industrial, food preparation and high chemical environments.
That’s where Silane come in.
The floor is treated exactly as for Polished Concrete, but instead of using Lithium densifiers and sealers we now use Silane. This gives you a bullet proof surface that is impervious to virtually any product.
Silane technology is a vast improvement over traditional resins like epoxy. Typically epoxy form a layer on top of the floor, which is why it normally delaminates over time. Silane on the other hand impregnates and fuses with the floor, so it can never delaminate. It withstands forklifts, grinding and welding. This means that once you have put Silane on your floor it is in your floor for the lifetime of the floor. And it can be polished to a beautiful gloss if needed.
1K SF Silane Hybrid Coating is an Innovative Binder Based on a Patented Technology, 1K SF Silane Hybrid Floor Sealer cures on contact with moisture and its chemical structure has been optimized to achieve low viscosity.
As a result, the binder penetrates deep into the pores of a cement-bound floor, filling the pores completely and forming thin, shiny film on the surface.
After the binder has cured, everyday substances containing water or oil are unable to enter the pores. The coating therefore offers highly effective stain protection.
Even substances that are left on the surface for some time can be removed without any lasting stains.
1K SF Silane Hybrid Coating is applied for stain-resistant impregnation of mineral substrates e.g. polished or non-polished concrete floors, paving stones, clinker, bricks and natural stone for protection against stains like coffee, tea, ketchup, orange juice, ink, red wine, household and engine oils etc.
Surfaces will exhibit high strength, are exceedingly scratch resistant and impervious to typical cleaning agents.
1K SF Silane Hybrid Floor Coating is for designers and specifiers who are looking for high impact, aesthetically pleasing concrete floors.
