Fortis manufacture a range of reactive concrete acid stains. These are used for the designer stained concrete floors for an individual effect.  It is the concrete acid stain of choice for those wishing to eliminate heavy neutralisation.   Fortis Adhesive and Coatings Concrete Acid Stains are a reactive concrete stain that contain no hydrochloric acid, therefore eliminating the need for neutralising. They do however require a mop with clean water to remove any residual salts the following morning.

Fortis Concrete Acid Stains can be used on new and old concrete as well as concrete overlays.

Enhancing the acid stain is recommended. This can be done by sealing with a range of different coatings:
From water based FORTIS ECO COAT 526 GLOSS to single pack moisture curing FORTIS COAT 519 

Hint:

  • When applying stains, always use all-plastic spray bottles.
  • Always test your dilution concentrations to ensure you obtain the colour you’re after.
  • Test the sealer to see how the finished floor will look.
  • DO NOT use hydrochloric acid to prepare the concrete.
  • Concrete needs to be a minimum of 14 days old before applying Acid Stains

Polished Concrete Densifier | Grout | Enhancer | Sealer

Fortis polished concrete densifiers, grouts and sealers have been developed specifically for the Australian market. Australian concrete blend is different to other parts of the world requiring more attention when polishing or sealing.

Our polished Concrete SheildTM range are designed for quick application, deep penetration and superior finish on polished floors.  We have the more economical silicate densifiers right through to premium Nano-Lithium systems which allow for fast movement through resin pads and superior long term finish. All with added nano-particles and penetration aids.

POLISHED CONCRETE – CONCRETE SHEILD GROUT 1000 | PREMIUM DENSIFIER AND PREMIUM ENHANCE

Fortis concrete densifiers, grouts and sealers can be used during the pour stage of a slab or any time after. To achieve a full polished concrete floor the floor should be ground, grouted and densified at different stages in the polishing process.

Fortis can recommend various distributors with excellent knowledge of the process and the equipment required for diamond grinding/polishing.

 

 1. Concrete Sheild™ Densifier 

Concrete Shield Densifier – is a ready to use, blended silicate solution used to polish concrete, harden and seal green or aged concrete. The silicate solution penetrates concrete to react and produce an improved resistance and dust free surface.

Suitable for interior and exterior use in warehouses, restaurants, retail shops and car parks just to name a few applications.  Concrete shield densifier gives good abrasion resistance and penetration and excellent clean ability.  It reacts with the calcium hydroxide in the concrete to produce an improved resistant and dust free finish.  Please refer to TDS for further information.
