Ready-to-use lithium densifier
Liquid-Hard Ultra lithium concrete densifier and chemical hardener is a ready-to-use, colorless liquid, which hardens and dustproofs concrete at a molecular level. As it is applied and penetrates into the concrete surface, a chemical reaction takes place, producing a byproduct that fills in the pores of the concrete one molecule at a time. The hardener then solidifies the concrete to eliminate dusting and pitting. The product is simply sprayed on and then brushed into the surface using a microfiber mop.
