As we all know, accelerated schedules and the search for the newest and best processes have influenced the somewhat recent trend of applying a liquid floor hardener (densifier) immediately after slab finishing as a “cure coat”, then subsequently applying bondbreaker in the panel areas. As with everything, this simplified and expedient process comes with trade-offs. This session will explore ASTM C309 and how it pertains to industrial floor slabs, how concrete hydrates, how liquid floor hardeners work, and how they interact with and affect that hydration process. We will also cover reactive bondbreaker functionality and how applying it on top of liquid floor hardeners comes with its own set of possible issues to be aware of. Product compatibility, proper timing, and expected results will be discussed, as well. This discussion should leave the attendee able to make a more well-informed decision about the sequence of application they wish to choose on their next project by weighing the pros and cons of each course as it pertains to densifier and bondbreaker.
Seretta was founded in 1987 in Orlando, FL and now has offices in Orlando, Charlotte and Austin. We perform complete foundation, slab, tiltwall and paving packages.

Innovative Structural Solutions (INNSTRUCT) designs and manufactures products that are meant to greatly enhance the construction industry. We create products that will build better structures, require less effort, and increase profitability for contractors and end users. We have now developed the Total Integrated Panel System (TIPS) for tilt-up. This revolutionary, patent pending, prefabricated system integrates structural steel, insulation, and labor into one fully composite product. It is an industry first solution that produces stronger, lighter, insulated panels, while also reducing rebar, concrete, and labor use. Our project development and product education teams are eager to provide you with the information you need to make your next job more successful than ever.
