SPECIALCHEM Concrete Architect – securing architectural concrete

An innovative, nanotechnology product for colorless protection of surfaces made of high-density smooth concrete. The preparation effectively impregnates and strongly hydrophobicizes the surfaces of higher classes of concrete, i.e. C25, C30, C35. Thanks to the impregnation, water and other impurities do not penetrate the concrete surfaces. Surface hydrophobization also prevents the penetration of salts transported by water, acid rain or other substances that have a negative impact on concrete, causing corrosion of the reinforcement, cracks, erosion, moss growth, salt efflorescence or just dirt.

SPECIALCHEM Concrete Architect – securing architectural concrete

SPECIALCHEM Concrete Architect - protection of architectural concrete is an innovative, nanotechnological product for colorless protection of surfaces made of smooth, high-density concrete. The preparation effectively impregnates and strongly hydrophobizes the surfaces of higher classes of concrete, i.e. C25, C30, C35. Thanks to the use of the impregnation, water and other contaminants do not penetrate the concrete surfaces.

Surface hydrophobization also prevents the penetration of salts transported by water, acid rain or other substances that have a negative impact on concrete, causing corrosion of the reinforcement, cracks, erosion, moss growth, salt efflorescence or just dirt.

Hydrophobization also affects the strength of concrete and increases its frost resistance. In autumn and winter, frost causes that concrete is more exposed to freezing of moisture causing internal stresses and micro-cracks, and consequently its chipping.

The impregnation, depending on the amount of used preparation, penetrates up to several mm, which guarantees resistance to mechanical abrasion, which allows it to be used both on walls and on floors or parking lots.

The use of nanoparticles guarantees the unchanged vapor permeability after impregnation, the product does not clog pores, does not lubricate and does not limit gas diffusion and water vapor removal.

Application methods:

low pressure spray (HVLP or garden sprayer), roller, brush, immersion.

Features:

  • Protects concrete surfaces against dirt, moss and algae growth
  • Strengthens the material and protects against freezing
  • Does not change the original appearance of concrete - does not grease, does not give gloss
  • Does not slip
  • Prevents the formation of salt and cement efflorescence
  • It does not close the pores of the material - it does not limit vapor permeability
  • Resistant to negative weather conditions and UV rays
  • Long-term operation up to 8 years

Product application:

It is ideal for impregnation of smooth and vibrated concrete of low water absorption, i.e. architectural concrete, concrete driveways, concrete facades of buildings, as well as paving slabs or products such as flower pots, fencing panels and other prefabricated elements.

Efficiency: 

8-15m²/1L

Consumption depends on the application technique and the water absorption of the concrete.

How to use:

  • Plan the impregnation so that after its completion it does not rain for at least 3 hours. At the beginning, always test in an inconspicuous place and check if the effect is desired!
  • Protect plants and all other surfaces not to be impregnated with foil, especially glass and steel. In case of contamination, clean these surfaces immediately with a wet cloth or rinse with water. The surface prepared for impregnation must be clean and dry.
  • It is best to apply the appropriate amount of the preparation on the surface by spraying, but so that the impregnation does not create streaks - apply only as much impregnation as the concrete is able to absorb, the excess should be spread with a brush or removed with a cloth.
  • Leave it to dry.
  • ATTENTION! Apply one or two coats but only wet on wet.
  • Tools should be rinsed with running water.
  • Apply one or two coats wet on wet.

Functions and tasks of the SPECIALCHEM Concrete Architect product.

Architectural concrete is becoming more and more popular in construction and is used in both residential and industrial buildings as well as public facilities. To ensure its durability and attractive appearance, it is recommended to use appropriate protective impregnations. A colorless impregnation is a perfect solution SPECIALCHEM Concrete Architect based on innovative nanotechnology. Thanks to this solution, the material becomes fully permeable to water vapor, which means that the protected surfaces do not lose their permeability. Below are some reasons why you should use this product:

  • Protection against moisture: Architectural concrete is exposed to rainwater and moisture, which may lead to the formation of streaks, salt efflorescence and micro-cracks on the surface. Colorless impregnation SPECIALCHEM Concrete Architect penetrates deep into the concrete structure, creating a hydrophobic barrier that effectively drains water and protects the material against the growth of moss, algae and fungi. Thanks to the use of this impregnation, concrete remains in excellent condition for up to 8 years.
  • Protection against dirt: SPECIALCHEM Concrete Architect impregnation gives the concrete surface a lotus effect, which means that it is protected against the penetration of various substances, such as acid rain, road salt dissolved in water, drinks or food dirt, soot or dust. This is especially important for concrete surfaces exposed to heavy loads, such as parking lots or garages. Thanks to impregnation, concrete becomes less susceptible to dirt, does not darken, and is easier to keep clean.
  • Maintaining aesthetics: SPECIALCHEM Concrete Architect is a colorless impregnation that does not change the color, structure, slippage or gloss of the concrete surface. Thanks to this, it retains the original aesthetics and finish of architectural concrete. Even after impregnation, the surface remains matte and natural. This is important, especially for architectural elements of high aesthetic value, such as walls, facades, columns or floors.
  • Full vapor permeability: Impregnation SPECIALCHEM Concrete Architect it is fully vapor permeable. This means that it enables the natural exchange of water vapor between the concrete and the surroundings. This is especially important for facilities that require an appropriate microclimate, such as utility rooms or historic buildings. Thanks to this property, concrete can breathe freely, which translates into its health and resistance to the development of fungi that are toxic to health.
  • Maintaining thermal insulation: SPECIALCHEM Concrete Architect guarantees the maintenance of dry walls, which is crucial for improving the thermal insulation parameters of buildings. It minimizes the moisture content in building materials, ensures good vapor permeability, prevents corrosion of reinforcement elements, erosion, and the development of mold and fungi. All this contributes to improving energy efficiency, thermal comfort and durability of the building.
