paste or may mechanically troweled to the concrete surface as a curing

replacement. Each application improves the products penetration and

surface density. Application replaces traditional curing, sealing and water

curing methods.

Synthetic10-TR will maintain the concretes natural appearance and may

be sealed, coated and covered with a wide range of floor primers,

coatings and overlays.
