WE'VE GOT THE CURE
CONCRETE PLACEMENT & FINISHING NEEDS
Finish Concrete Faster while Maintaining CONTROL of the Curing Process
Reflective Floor® Concrete Placement & Finishing System helps facilitate concrete finishing by rehydrating the surface on newly placed concrete to a creamy state without compromising its strength. Significantly extends the workability allowing Finishers to gain unprecedented control in adverse weather conditions that will reduce the risk of a slab prematurely setting and reduces blade friction and/or drag, operator fatigue, and trowel machine wear.
Reflective Floor® Concrete Placement & Finishing System reduces water evaporation by deeply penetrating the cap, creating an even-hydration barrier that retains nearly all of the placement water. Not allowing any excess moisture to escape ultimately eliminates volume loss which causes shrinkage, craze cracking, spalling and curling. This System substantially increases surface integrity resulting in exceedingly high and stable FF/FL numbers, higher compression strength, higher abrasion resistance, longevity, and high-gloss finishes.
Contractors will gain the CONTROL over the curing & finishing processes instead of the concrete having control over them!
Need extended slab protection during construction?
After using ReflectiXTENDER® Finishing Aid in the placement and finishing processes, use ReflectiFIER® Densifier* which has been specifically formulated for the Reflective Floor® Concrete Placement & Finishing System. This post-placement densifier acts as a fixative that is sprayed onto the surface after the power troweling have been completed. ReflectiFIER® post-densifier has hydrophobic properties that will repel water/liquids while also increasing its strength, abrasion resistance, and longevity.
*There are NO compatible densifier substitutes for this system. ReflectiFIER® Densifier is specifically designed to be used ONLY for the Reflective Floor® Concrete Placement & Finishing System.

Do these products retard or extend set times? Yes & No.
Some people have the misconception that these products retard or extend the hours &/or days it takes to cure, they do not but instead, they keep the slab and surface area very evenly hydrated resulting in consistent curing rates in all types of weather.
Retards set times in hot weather so there is no need to add any type of a retardant material to the mix-design to help extend workability and does not extend set times when using in colder weather. The chemical phenomena being experienced is that the slab is maintaining both the subsurface and surface moisture enabling the Finisher a longer window of time to properly finish the surface.
What about all the ‘traditional’ methods of curing & finishing I’ve always used?
Reflective Floor® Concrete Placement & Finishing System is formulated using the latest chemical advancements that when used properly, eliminates the need to use any traditional curing methods that affect the maturity of the concrete, such as when using water / moisture, heat, coverings, evaporation reducers, &/or film-forming curing compounds that results with inconsistent results over and over.
- Does Not Alter the water-to-cement (w/c) Ratio as a Result from Bleeding Slabs
- Reduces Drag
- Achieve Hard Troweled Surfaces Without Over-Troweling
- Eliminates False Sets
- Allows for Clean, Precise Cuts for Control Joints
What’s in it for me? How does this system help my bottom line?
Allows Contractors to cure and finish the same day as placement! Overall reduces labor and project downtime by completing projects ahead of schedule. No need to wait 28 days using traditional curing methods with water, coverings, other types of concrete additives, or a Contractor’s time baby-sitting the slab.
Quality reflects on your company's reputation!
Is the Reflective Floor® Concrete Placement & Finishing System ASTM C309, E96, and C156 compliant? YES.
These products exceed the minimum ASTM C309 qualifications for curing agents. The use of other curing products in conjunction with these products are not needed. They are the first non-film forming curing systems to exceed performance of ASTM E96 and C156 requirements for slab moisture retention.
How do these products meet or exceed these requirements?
These products have been formulated using nano sized components that are engineered to be highly reactive with the concrete mix-design forming internal bonds that close capillaries forming an internal membrane / vapor barrier within the surface of the slab, eliminating transmission of water and vapor.
What are ideal applications for REFLECTIVE FLOOR® CPF SYSTEM?
Anyone wanting a sustainable solution that delivers highly refined surfaces with exceedingly high and stable FF/FL numbers, maximum hardness, durability, high abrasion resistance, extended service life and high reflective gloss.
