Have you ever experienced the phenomena of concrete sweating? Concrete sweating is often times mistaken for a water problem since it is common to see a condensation effect on the surface of the slab. What causes concrete to sweat? When warm air comes into contact with a colder temperature concrete slab, the condensation will build up on the surface and can commonly be defined as concrete sweating. So how do you prevent this troublesome occurrence? By using the Lithi-Tek 4500 followed up 7 days later by the Siloxa-Tek 8510 concrete sweating will be a thing of the past.

These two products are the perfect solution for concrete with potential and current sweating problems. The Lithi-Tek 4500 is first used as a primer to penetrate into the concrete and chemically react filling all the tiny pores and micro-voids strengthening and preventing any passageways for moisture to travel. After sealing from within the Siloxa-Tek 8510 is applied seven days later as a penetrating topcoat sealer. An invisible hydrophobic barrier is created on the surface that will not peel, delaminate or flake off. This hydrophobic barrier will prevent any water penetration from seeping in or out of the concrete. Not only will this prevent the passage of water it will prevent concrete from future sweating problems; mold, mildew and efflorescence will also be prevented.

No other sealers on the market even comes close to the functionality and wide variety of applications as the Lithi-Tek 4500 Siloxa-Tek 8510 combination. Guaranteed to outlive, outlast and outperform any other products, these are the only solutions that will permanently put an end to moisture migration.
