Description Technical Specs
Product Detail:
  • Concrete Hardeners are colored powder that is spread over the surface of fresh concrete, and troweled into the top layer of cement.  Increases density, strength, and abrasion resistance of the concrete, and colors the surface.
  • Surfaces enhanced with LITHOCHROME Color Hardener are
    • Nonfading, permanent colored surfaces
    • Durable in freeze/thaw conditions
    • Hard, dense and abrasion-resistant
    • Best for imprinting with concrete stamps
    • Cost-effective and easy-to-maintain
  • LITHOCHROME Color Hardener is used to add beautiful color - vibrant or subtle - into the surface of freshly placed concrete. This ready-to-use, powdered dry-shake hardener produces long-wearing horizontal surfaces ideal for pedestrian or vehicular traffic - indoors or out.
  • LITHOCHROME Color Hardener provides more coverage with less product than competing color hardeners. The superior formulation is denser, resulting in approximately 75% more thickness when using LITHOCHROME Color Hardener at the same coverage rate.
  • Proven superior abrasion resistance:
    • Based on test results, LITHOCHROME Color Hardener dramatically improves the abrasion resistance of concrete as compared to a control concrete of the same base composition finished and cured in a similar manner. The recommended application rate of LITHOCHROME Color Hardener provided over 34 times the abrasion resistance on a depth of wear basis as compared to the control. A higher application demonstrated over 100 times the control's performance.
  • Proven higher compressive strength:
    • The compressive strength of a material is that value of uniaxial compressive stress reached when the material fails completely. The compressive strength is usually obtained experimentally by means of a compressive test. Based on a 2' x 2' cube compressive test, LITHOCHROME Color Hardener provided superior compressive strength after 31 days over competing color hardener products.
  • Better coverage rates result in reduced installation costs:
    • By using properly graded aggregates in our color hardener we are able to extend our surface coverage rates. Most manufacturers recommend using 60 pounds per every 100 square feet. Our color hardener recommendation is for 50 pounds per every 100 square feet. LITHOCHROME Color Hardener is manufactured with well-graded aggregates resulting in better suspension at the surface of the concrete in its plastic state, allowing for complete coverage using less material.
  • Well-selected aggregates and pigments result in better color opacity:
    • Manufacturers are faced with raw material drifts in color and different colors of sand indigenous to the location of the manufacturing facility. Providing consistent gradation and color for each new batch presents a challenge, but ensures that large jobs over a period of time look the same from beginning to end. LITHOCHROME Color Hardener is manufactured with specific color-selected aggregates for the most consistent coverage possible.

Please note: concrete colors shown are approximate. Due to shade variations associated with individual color monitors and printers. We strongly recommend that a test slab be poured and approved prior to starting the job. Test slabs should be poured replicating jobsite conditions.
