The Siloxa-Tek 8500 is our favorite product to treat nearly any application. The Siloxa-Tek 8500 is a water-based penetrating sealer that leaves a natural finish, meaning it will not change the look or appearance of the concrete.
The 8500 is used to protect concrete from deicing salts, airbone salts, and salt water. If concrete is left unsealed it can result in spalling, pitting and cracking. The Siloxa-Tek 8500 is able to resist deicing salt damage and keep concrete strong and waterproof. It also reduces efflorescence and organic growth like mold and mildew.
Available in a ready to use version, or an ultra concentrated version. The ultra concentrated version is mixed with 4 gallons of distilled water prior to application. Two coats are easily applied wet-on-wet (the second coat is applied immediately after the first coat while the first coat is still wet) with a sprayer, roller or brush.
To increase the strength and performance of the Siloxa-Tek 8500, apply one coat of the Lithi-Tek 4500 five to seven days prior to sealing with the Siloxa-Tek 8500. Only use the Lithi-Tek 4500 as a primer on poured concrete.
The Micro-Degreaser 1100 can be used to degrease and remove soils and stains prior to using the Siloxa-Tek 8500.
