Lythic Densifier XL

Product ID: LY-3

Size: One and Five gallon containers
Product Details

Where to Buy

Lythic Densifier is the faster, safer, easier densifier. It is quick reacting, residue free, and pH less than 10, meaning you save time and money without sacrificing safety or effectiveness. Other densifiers rely on reactive metal silicates while Lythic Densifier is a 99.5% pure silica. This allows Lythic Densifier to be spray applied and react within 10 to 15 minutes. Lythic even works on cementitious overlays and other low lime surfaces where traditional densifiers would not. When it is done reacting, there is no whiting or residue to remove or scrub off. Lythic Densifier provides all the densification, hardening, and permeability benefits of traditional densifiers with a fraction of the effort. Lythic Densifier XL offers the same benefits with a larger particle for faster build up when burnishing and repairing soft slab surfaces.

  • Saves time and labor
  • No hazardous waste removal
  • Prevents dusting and increases durability
  • Quickly reacts within 10 to 15 minutes
  • No surface residue to scrub off
  • No whiting when dry
  • Low viscosity for easy spray application
  • Safer pH level (less than 10 pH)
  • Will not contribute to Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR)
  • Concentrate and Ready-To-Use formulas

Features and Advantages

Features and Advantages

Lythic Densifier XL can be applied to any new or cured concrete surface to increase hardness and abrasion resistance, and prevent dusting. 

Lythic Densifier XL’s larger particle size can optimize performance on porous or deteriorated concrete. Lythic Densifier XL can be used in conjunction with Lythic Densifier and other Lythic products as described in Section 014 of the TIS found under the literature tab.

Lythic Densifier XL works well with colored concrete, minimizing efflorescence that can dull color.  Unlike some silicate densifiers that can contribute to alkali-silica reaction (ASR), Lythic Densifier XL reduces the risk of ASR.

Because it bonds to silica in cementitious materials, Lythic Densifier XL can work with low-lime decorative cementitious overlays that do not react well with sodium, lithium, or potassium silicate densifiers, although porosity is usually not a problem with these overlays.

Unlike silicate densifiers, Lythic Densifier XL contains no significant proportion of mineral salts that can discolor concrete.  It is fast-reacting, and does not require scrubbing-in or extensive reacting time.  There is nothing to scrub off and no hazardous waste disposal.
