Used in a range of projects – from high-end homes to big box retail stores – beautifully-finished concrete floors are increasingly in demand today. To create decorative, shiny concrete floors that are also high quality – with superior strength and density – it is important to start with the right foundation.

Typically, during construction, water is added to the concrete to cure it, making it more pliable and easier to trowel. However, this also weakens the concrete and can be detrimental to the surface performance of the slab.

Armourtech Floor Pro Float is a new product that eliminates the need for added water and is like having an extra finisher. The product is easy to spray on with an airless sprayer, it speeds up the finishing process and takes away the need for setting up sprinklers.

Daryn Stockwell, director of ISL and the owner of Armourtech, explains, “Alongside densifying and hardening the surface of the concrete, Pro Float reduces trowel and burnishing pan wear, as well as operator fatigue, which reduces labour costs significantly, as well as the number of passes. It can also extend workable time by 15 to 30 minutes to close the slab properly, even under adverse conditions, such as high wind, heat or low humidity.”

As well as being good news for the placer of the concrete, there are numerous long-term benefits that Pro Float brings to cured concrete. Daryn says that the product has been shown to reduce surface evaporation, mitigating and reducing slab curling and differential shrinkage. It also increases surface compressive strength by up to 30 per cent.

In heavy traffic areas, after concrete has cured approximately 21-28 days, a simple, single application of Armourtech Floor Densifier should be applied as the final densifying of the concrete.

And the impact for the homeowner? Pro Float gives a high-quality finish that opens up various options for decorative finishes, such as adding striking floor shine both simply and very cost effectively.

Feedback from contractors using the product has been extremely positive. Pro Float was recently used in a retail business flooring project in Henderson, with the contractor commenting that it was cost and time effective, produced a great finish and was very clean to use, with no dust or waste left on the site.

Pro Float has also been successfully used on one of the largest concrete pours in New Zealand – a massive 60,000 square metre commercial site in Clevedon. The contractor says that Pro Float has changed the way they place concrete and they have not seen a product that does so much for them.

Daryn comments, “Pro Float is like having an extra finisher on the job, as well as providing a foundation for a more cost-effective Armourtech floor-polished or burnished finishes. This high-quality product creates a denser, less permeable surface, which increases resistance to staining, making it perfect for a range of residential and commercial applications.”

From a warehouse or industrial floor to a masterpiece polished floor, Armourtech Floor Pro Float floor gives you the best foundation, the most predictable outcomes and a perfect canvas from which to start from.
