Color Hardener

COLOR HARDENER Flex C Ment’s COLOR HARDENER is ready to use  dry shake product. This product is formulated to be easily integrated into the surface of freshly placed concrete. Color Hardener densifies the surface of the slab, increases its resistance to wear, freeze and thaw cycles, heavy traffic and enhances light reflection while greatly improving its appearance.

Regularly used as a floor hardening and coloring agent with flat work and imprinted (stamped) concrete to simulate the look of brick stone, tile, slate, etc. Color Hardener is also used in institutional, industrial, commercial and residential applications for interior flat concrete floors where a workhorse, abrasion resistance, colored or light reflecting floor is desired.

Color Hardener is formulated with specially graded silica quartz aggregates, top quality  Cement blends, light fast synthetic and natural iron oxides, for non-fading and U/V light resistance and proprietary additives..


Color hardener is available in 16 colors. ( click to see the color chart )

APPLICATION:

On Flex C Ment Overlay Mix :
After application of Overlay Mix, start application of Color Hardener. Before broadcasting it  should be fluffed up, aerated, (because of settling during shipping,) by means of opening the pail and running your fingers through it several times. Broadcast the product and let it remain on the surface for several minutes or until Color Hardener has wetted out sufficiently, then float with a wood, magnesium (recommended) or steel float. If needed,  some areas may have to be touched up with more color hardener application.

CAUTION; DO NOT OVER TROWEL, DO NOT SPRINKLE OR FOG WATER ON CONCRETE.  This will cause variation on color intensity. Use Mixed Modifier 300 to mist the over dry areas while trowelling.

On Ready Mix Concrete :
After initial floating and all excess bleed water has dispersed, the first application of Flex C Ment Color Hardener may be applied. The color hardener should be fluffed up, aerated, because of settling during shipping, by means of opening the bag or pail and running your fingers through it several times.
Broadcast first application using about 60% of recommended amount and let it remain on the surface for several minutes then float with a wood or magnesium float.
Immediately broadcast the second application with remaining of Color Hardener and let it wet out for several minutes then trowel with a fresno or steel trowel, if needed in some areas may have to be touched up with more color.

CAUTION; DO NOT OVER TROWEL, DO NOT SPRINKLE OR FOG WATER ON CONCRETE. This will cause variation on color intensity
