Walttools has the best solutions to seal your warehouse floors, reduce maintanence cost, and protect concrete against concrete dusting and radon.
Warehouse sealer may be one of the most important investments for your place of business or home. If there is bare concrete in your warehouse, home, or basement, people are is at risk from silica exposure. Every time a person walks on the floor or a forklift drives over it, tiny particles of the concrete surface are being worn away and becoming airborne.
In working factories, the particulate not only put the employees at risk but also will damage machinery, computers, and other susceptible capital investments.
Concrete is made with sand and gravel which contain “free” silica, or crystalline silica. Fine particles of crystalline silica are abraded from the surface and released into the air we breathe. Many cements contain other hazardous substances as well that are naturally corrosive to human beings. Concrete dust may irritate the nose, throat, and respiratory tract by mechanical abrasion, causing coughing, sneezing, and shortness of breath. Concrete dust may cause chronic bronchitis or aggravate pre-existing lung disease such as emphysema, bronchitis, and asthma.
The easiest, quickest, and least expensive way to reduce or prevent this common problem is to seal or “densify” the concrete. Walttools offers the best densifier solutions on the market for your warehouse and similar needs. They are permanent, penetrating, and invisible. They will reduce facility maintanence cost by making it easier to keep clean.
In addition to concrete dusting, another comon issue, particularly for millions of basements is Radon. Exposure to radon in the home is responsible for an estimated 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year. Radon is a health hazard with a simple solution. Concrete densifiers have been proven to reduce and eliminate dangerous radon levels within 30 days of treatment.
Our three concrete densifier products – Sodium Tru Hard, Lithium Tru Hard, and Colloidal Tru hard – are used on warehouse floors and walls to stop water intrusion problems, along with helping to prevent concrete dusting, mitigate radon levels, and improve overall stain resistance (compared to untreated concrete). They also increase abrasion resistance which makes the surface less susceptible to damage from everyday traffic.
They are easily applied with a common pump sprayer, low pressure sprayer, medium nap roller, or even soft bristle, split-tip broom to produce a natural appearance that is non-slip and should last the life of the concrete.
Floors can then be burnished and buffed to reduce a mild sheen. If the floor contains a proper profile, the floor can then be treated with other sealers and finishes as these treatments will not hinder that process.
