Ashford Formula (AF), the orginal Concrete Densification technology and leader in the industry, penetrates your concrete and chemically reacts, solidifying the concrete surface components into a solid mass. It is inorganic, nontoxic, VOC free, colorless and odorless.
AF densifies concrete floors with a unique and unmatched catalytic chemistry through a process of crystalline growth which also hardens the concrete and locks up the dust.
AF treated floors are 32% harder within the first 30 minutes of treatment. The treated concrete continues to harden over time and acts as a supplement to surface and aggregate hardeners.
The AF stabilises the surface and slows the outward migration of water from concrete. Its chemical reaction forms a densified barrier that reduces shrinkage, cracking and hairline checking.
Concrete naturally creates dust from efflorescence, which then settles on finished goods, racks and equipment. The AF combines with the salts in concrete to become an integral part of the concrete, thus completely dustproofing the surface. This substantially reduces maintenance costs and protects sensitive equipment and manufactured products from dust particles.
ELIMINATES HIGH CONSTRUCTION COSTS
The AF is a one-time permanent application that eliminates the need for repeated applications of urethanes, waxes, acrylics and other expensive maintenance-intensive floor coatings. Foreign matter such as oil, alkali, free lime and traffic scum are easily removed with regular cleaning.
Steel troweled concrete floors treated with the AF also take on a permanent and attractive marble-like sheen. The longer these floors are subjected to cleaning and traffic, the better they look. Floors treated with the AF also have fewer tire marks from forklifts and other equipment. If tire marks do occur, they can be more easily removed.
Note: Regular cleaning and maintenance program is still recommended for any floor to remove surface contaminants and any acids or other corrosive materials should be removed immediately from the floor.
