Floor-lok Concrete Sealer , Curing Aid & Hardner

Rainguard Floor-lok is a low cost water based silane siloxane penetrating concete floor sealer designed to aid concrete curing, sealing, hardening and dustproofing for both interior and exterior projects. Floor-lok protects concrete floors from damage caused by water intrusion and seepage, chloride ion intrusion, cracking caused by freeze/thaw cycles, spalling, and scaling and helps prevent efflorescence and lime run. It dries completely clear without leaving any surface film, change in looks or texture. Floor-lok contains a proprietary ingredient called Micro-Lok™. This additive ensures a long lasting mechanical bond and creates a hydrophobic barrier not affected by weathering, salt, dirt, freezing temperatures, UV light and wind-driven rain.  Floor-lok is a penetrating sealer invisible after application as it penetrates completely below the concrete surface.  It protects against damage from water, salt and freeze – thaw cycling that can cause cracks in a surface.  It also adds stain resistance to the treated surface for easier cleaning. Using Floor-lok Concentrate offers a lower cost per gallon while being easier on the environment.  One gallon of Floor-lok concentrate makes 10 gallons ready-to-use product.  This means less product packaging, lower shipping costs and easier handling.  It also means fewer containers to throw away and less jobsite waste.

Where is Floor-lok used?

  • Construction & Remodel Projects:   Warehouse|factory|parking garage floors, building ramps, sidewalks, concrete decks
  • Homeowner projects:  Driveways, garage floors, patios, porches, walkways

Working with Concentrates

Part # Size Makes Instructions
CR-1600 1 Gal 10 Gal Measure concentrate needed, mix with water, stir (use 9 parts water to 1 part Floor-lok)

FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE APPLICATION STEPS
1. Floor-lok should be applied using low-pressure airless or hand pump spray equipment
2. Do not atomize material as it will negatively impact product performance. For power sprayers, use large tip size of at least .035 to .051. For hand pump sprayers, turn spray nozzle at end of the spray wand so product flows out more like a steady stream and keep pressure up to make sure enough material is coming out. Apply until surface is completely saturated and pooling occurs. Do not need to backroll or sweep off excess if absorption takes place within 1-2 minutes.
3. Avoid application in windy weather.
4. Trigger gun off at the end of each pass to avoid using excessive materials. Stop all applications only at corners, joints, seams, or edges.
5. Multiple coats may be applied, whiting or yellowing will not occur. A second coat is best applied "wet on wet" which means apply when first coat is damp but not yet dry. Use same flood coat procedure.

PRECAUTIONS & LIMITATIONS
1. All surfaces to be coated should be clean of any dirt and grime, efflorescence, lime run, form oils and release agents, grease, mud, excess mortar, and mold and mildew, etc.
2. All cracks should be pointed or caulked. All voids, bee holes, masonry surface defects and openings such as conduits, pipes, drains, door frames, vents, air conditioner openings, electrical openings, control joints, or any dissimilar materials should be repaired using urethane or other approved patching.

STORAGE
Store materials in a well-protected area between 45° and 90°F. Avoid freezing temperatures, direct sunlight, and moisture. Keep away from heat sources.
