Exposed concrete needs durability protection because:
Leaving the concrete unprotected is not an option.
This is why it is important to protect and extend the durability of the concrete from day one. Our hydrogel concrete solutions offer many benefits for exposed concrete.
Interested in finding out more about how our durability system for exposed concrete can help with your next project?
Long-term durability – a permanent treatment right through the slab, that can’t be reversed.
Permanent anti-dusting – protect against carbonation.
Enhanced Curing – Added benefit of curing enhancement. Save time and money!
Moisture Retention – Complies with the moisture retention requirements of AS3799.
Minimal Downtime – The slab can be walked on after as little as 1 hour following application.
Reduced Delamination – Treatments penetrate up to 150mm avoiding the risk of delamination.
Does not cause tyre squeal – unlike topical sealers (car park floor slabs etc.).
Sustainable / Environment and occupant friendly / Nil VOC and water-based
Compatibility – reduce costs on work prior to subsequent finishes such as line marking.
Warehouses including high-traffic floors
Car park – multi-level and apartments
Exposed retail trading floors
Factories under constant load and traffic such as forklifts
Precast concrete walls
Concrete ceilings and soffits

A quick fly-through of an exposed retail floor.
This store floor is subjected to foot traffic from 1000s of people every day. This was treated with AQURON 1000 hydrogel treatment.
The video is taken 10 years later, and the floor is still in tip-top condition!
Floor slab curing, sealing and anti-dust hardening.
Floor slab sealing and hardening for retail foot traffic.
Floor slab deep penetrating hardening, to withstand long-term vehicle traffic.
Cure and seal the warehouse floors, plus surface hardening and finishing treatment.
Water repellency treatment was applied for protection of selected walls.
Waterproofing treatment was applied to protect against hydroponic chemicals.
