    What is LITHOCHROME® Color Hardener:
    LITHOCHROME Color Hardener is a ready-to-use, powdered dry-shake hardener used to add color into the surface of freshly placed concrete. It produces long-wearing, abrasion-resistant surfaces. Due to improved surface density the color hardened concrete has improved resistance to the effects of freeze-/thaw cycles and de-icing salts.

    Where to use LITHOCHROME Color Hardener:
    LITHOCHROME Color Hardener should be used any place that increased surface durability is desired. It's ideal for pedestrian or vehicular traffic areas such as malls, retail stores, restaurants, sidewalks, streetscapes, driveways, hotel lobbys, car parks, both indoors or out.

    How to apply LITHOCHROME Color Hardener:
    LITHOCHROME Color Hardener should be hand-broadcast into the plastic concrete using the dry-shake method. It provides more coverage with less product than competing color hardeners. The superior formulation is denser than competing color hardeners, resulting in approximately 75% more thickness when using LITHOCHROME Color Hardener at the same coverage rate.

    What are the benefits of LITHOCHROME Color Hardener:
    Proven superior abrasion resistance
    LITHOCHROME Color Hardener dramatically improves the abrasion resistance of concrete as compared to a control concrete. LITHOCHROME Color Hardener provided over 34 times the abrasion resistance on a depth of wear basis as compared to the control. A higher application demonstrated over 100 times the control’s performance.

    Proven higher compressive strength
    Based on a 2” x 2” cube compressive test, LITHOCHROME Color Hardener provided superior compressive strength after 31 days over competing color hardener products.

    Better coverage rates result in reduced installation costs
    LITHOCHROME Color Hardener is manufactured with well-graded aggregates resulting in better suspension at the surface of the concrete in its plastic state, allowing for complete coverage using less material.

    Well-selected aggregates and pigments result in better color opacity
    LITHOCHROME Color Hardener is manufactured with specific color-selected aggregates for the most consistent coverage possible. Providing consistent gradation and color for each new batch ensures that large jobs over a period of time look the same from beginning to end.
