Concrete Surface Protection

Protection of any concrete surface, whilst optional, is a modest and worthwhile investment. This is especially true for decorative or architectural concrete where the benefit of added value will be sustained through appropriate protection.

The COLCHEM range provides solutions for most requirements extending from basic dirt and stain resistance to enhanced freeze/thaw performance, anti-graffiti coatings, dust proofing, surface hardening, and improved abrasion resistance.

The technically superior Hebau range of protective coatings are all non-solvent , water based formulations with minimal adverse environmental effect.

Hebau Colorfresh Intensive

A solvent free, penetrating, colour enhancing protective coating, which can be applied immediately onto fresh concrete or fully cured surfaces. The product is vapour permeable, non- hazardous in use and significantly improves UV protection. Benefits include excellent resistance to dirt, oil and water staining, suppression of efflorescence, with protection against carbonation, industrial emissions or weathering. The finished result is an easily maintained, water repellent, skid resistant and durable concrete.

Hebau Colorfresh Effect

Designed to provide all the protection of Colorfresh Intensiv, but giving a fully matt, non shiny, “wet look”, which will enhance and maintain appearance even when very dry. Ideal for micro-­‐etched or pigmented concrete decorative concrete where long term depth of finish is required.

Hebau Colortec Max

Has all the performance criteria of Colorfresh Intensiv above, with the added enhancement of being invisible after application. This is very beneficial when applied to natural stone, exposed aggregate or cast stone surfaces where it is important to maintain original appearance and texture of the finished product.

Hebau Colortec CTR/Colortec Finish

Is a refined version of the Hebau penetrating protective coating range, which does not impart any sheen to the surface and can be applied to ultra-smooth, fair faced concrete immediately after de-moulding. Colortec CTR offers efficiency and quality benefits to the pre-caster by providing effective surface protection to architectural units, without double handling or production delay.

Hebau Prowall 11

A sacrificial anti-graffiti coating for the protection of vulnerable installations. Prowall 11 is water based, and non-hazardous in use. It is a one component non-yellowing, UV resistant system, which is essentially invisible after use. Vapour permeability is only marginally reduced. Graffiti can generally be removed with high pressure washing, with no additional chemicals required. 

We passionately believe in the long term benefits of a good concrete surface protection and maintenance regime so are happy to offer advice and information on the options available.

The Colchem product range is designed to provide technically proficient solutions for concrete manufacture and construction.
