Problem
pav-cementoIn order to protect the concrete floors and keep them clean over time, it is necessary to proceed with a treatment of the same, able to limit the porosity and resist outdoor stains and mechanical and chemical stress to which it is subjected: traffic of cars – oil stains – fuels – etc.

In this case the treatments used must guarantee a high resistance, because they are called to resist outdoor stresses such as: UV exposition, foot traffic, grease stains.

CLEANING

The cleaning of concrete surfaces can be done differently, on the basis of the dirt that must be removed, always acting with balanced and suitably diluted products.

Below is a table with the description of the most common types of cleaning.

DEWAXING

• Apply pure CS
Allow it to act for not less than 10 min.
• Pour BASICOdiluted to 50%
Work it for a few minutes
Remove the whole with vacuum cleaner
• Apply ACIDOdiluted to 5%
Work it for a few minutes
Remove the whole with a vacuum cleaner

NEW FLOORING

Apply ACIDOdiluted to 5%
Work it for a few minutes
• Rinse with clean water
Remove the whole with vacuum cleaner

UNTREATED CONCRETE

• Pour BASICOdiluted to 20%
Work it for a few minutes
Remove the whole with vacuum cleaner

NB. Treatments made with epoxy products must be removed with appropriate mechanical systems

SOLUTION FOR INDOOR

The treatment of concrete floors is necessary in order to limit the absorption of pollutants into the material and preserve its compactness over time.

CIR proposes two types of treatment, a type composed of single-component systems and another composed of a high-resistance pigmentable bi-component system for floors subject to severe stress.

MONOCOMPONENT TREATMENT

• Apply pure STOP CEM in two hands about 1 – 2 hours apart from each other
• Apply pure FINE CEM PLUS in one hand without creating superficial stagnation

NB. The treatment consists of two monocomponent polyurethane products

BI-COMPONENT TREATMENT

• Apply PROMOCEMin one hand
• Apply CIR ULTRA FINISH (LUX – MATT) in two hands about 1 – 4 hours apart from each other based on the chosen aesthetic effect

NB. On a quartz/smoothed floor, perform a mechanical preparation of the substrate

COLORED BI-COMPONENT TREATMENT

• Apply PROMOCEM 9003 in one hand
• Apply CIR ULTRA FINISH MATT appropriately colored in two hands, 1-2 hours apart from each other

NB. On quartz/smooth floors, perform a mechanical preparation of the substrate

SOLUTION FOR OUTDOOR

For outdoor floors CIR offers a solution with high resistance both mechanical and UV rays, able to maintain the characteristics of the material over time.

BI-COMPONENT TREATMENT

• Apply PROMOCEMin one hand

• Apply CIR ULTRA FINISH (LUX – MATT) in two hands about 3 – 4 hours apart from each other.

COLORED BI-COMPONENT TREATMENT

• Apply PROMOCEM 9003 in one hand

• Apply CIR ULTRA FINISH MATT appropriately colored in two hands, 1-2 hours apart from each other. Available in the pigmented version in 7 different RAL colours.

NB. On quartz/smooth floors, perform a mechanical preparation of the substrate

MAINTENANCE
The CIR solution foresees the use of neutral pH maintenance cleaners, free of aggressive substances and solvents, which allow the aesthetic effect of the protective treatment to remain unaltered.

On floors treated with CIR ULTRA FINISH it is possible to use more aggressive cleaning agents, without affecting the finishing.

DAILY MAINTENANCE: PULI PAV

CIR SOLUTION ADVANTAGES
The solution proposed by CIR allows to perform highly resistant treatments both outdoor and indoor, without being affected by UV rays and therefore without undergoing any chromatic alteration over time.

It should be noted that the CIR ULTRA FINISH product can be pigmented with coloring pastes for water based systems.

Available in the colored version by a pigmentation TONER in 7 RAL colors

STRONG COLORS:
• YELLOW RAL 1021
• RED RAL 3016
• BLUE RAL 5015

PASTEL COLORS:
• GREEN RAL 6019
• GRAY RAL 7032
• GRAY RAL 7035
• WHITE RAL 9003

IIn addition, the CIR ULTRA FINISH bi-component system is certified suitable for use in environments subject to H.A.C.C.P

THE TECHNICIAN RECOMMENDS
Before carrying out a treatment on a concrete floor it is necessary to check the absence of moisture coming from the ground and check the degree of absorption of the flooring.
