Silex® GLIDE DC Sub-Surface Hardener & Refining Compound


Silex® GLIDE DC SUB-SURFACE HARDENER & REFINING COMPOUND is a dual compound (DC) is a neutral pH formula designed utilizing reactive colloidal silica technologies with hydrophilic properties which allows deeper penetration into the substrate due to its nano-sized particles. GLIDES’s fast-reacting components immediately begins chemically reacting with the concrete's matrix forming new CSH compounds in the micro-pores and micro-capillaries.

Silex® GLIDE DC's formulation has also been engineered with nano-abrasion technologies which act like an abrasive that enhances the diamond’s cutting capabilities providing faster, more efficient concrete removal.  During the first cut, GLIDE DC forms a reactive slurry that is pushed back into the substrate's micro-voids by the grinder’s head pressure where it continues to chemically react and bond with itself.

This is the most important and 1st step in the Silex® Silica Stacking® Refinement Process which begins creating a harder, denser floor resulting in a longer life span and performance.
