EMERCHROME® SC Color Hardener
What is EMERCHROME SC Color Hardener:
EMERCHROME® SC Color Hardener is an extremely abrasion
resistant dry shake color hardener comprised of specialty
aggregates that produce dense, hard surfaces ideal for areas
of frequent pedestrian or vehicular traffic such as building
entrances, walkways, ramps, stairs, docks, depots, parking
structures, food courts, and business drive through lanes.
It is available in a wide range of high opacity colors, and is
designed for installation at the time concrete is placed.
Decorative effects can be created by lightly sandblasting
fully cured applications, or by using a fine etch surface
retarder on plastic concrete to reveal natural emery or silicon
carbide fine aggregate that sparkle as pedestrians walk across
Where to use EMERCHROME SC Color Hardener:
Use EMERCHROME SC Color Hardener at a minimum coverage rate of 90 pounds (1 ½ bags) per 100 square feet
(6.75 kg/m2) for residential patios and walkways. When using light colors or installing on commercial areas of heavy foot traffic, where sport cleats are expected, or where hard wheel carts frequent, applications of 90 to 120
pounds per 100 square feet (6.75 to 9 kg/m2) is needed. Use at 120 Pounds per 100 square feet (9 kg/m2) if vehicular traffic is expected.
