Introducing SCOFIELD® Formula One™ Guard-W, a water-based finish used in conjunction with a high-speed burnisher to enhance the gloss of ground and polished concrete surfaces. SCOFIELD Formula One Guard-W was developed to provide a measure of protection against water intrusion, a fast turnaround time, excellent image clarity and easier maintenance.
SCOFIELD Formula One Guard-W is VOC-compliant in most air quality jurisdictions* and is cost-effective. It dries more quickly than solvent-based guard products, which allows faster turnaround and expedites completion on the jobsite. SCOFIELD Formula One Guard-W contains lithium silicate which will improve the gloss level and surface durability of ground and polished concrete when used with a high-speed burnisher.
After polishing, concrete surfaces treated with SCOFIELD Formula One Guard-W will demonstrate enhanced clarity; the final color will generally be deeper than that of the original installation. It improves resistance to water intrusion, reducing maintenance costs. Used after the substrate is treated with SCOFIELD® Formula One™ Lithium Densifier MP, it further reduces liquid permeability while remaining breathable.
SCOFIELD Formula One Guard-W is an economical product capable of providing longer life and higher reflectivity for ground and polished concrete of all grades and classes. The treated and burnished concrete will provide a surface that is easy to maintain and environmentally sound, with an increased gloss level and clarity.
