H&C® Lithium Protective Finish
H&C Lithium Protective Finish is a lithium fortified high-gloss finish designed to penetrate and protect polished concrete surfaces by increasing the hardness, improving stain resistance, and providing superior reflectivity when burnished. H&C Lithium Protective Finish chemically bonds to concrete and will never peel, flake or fade.
Where to Use
INTERIOR USE ONLY
POLISHED CONCRETE APPLICATIONS SUCH AS:
H&C Lithium Protective Finish is water-based and is very easy to apply. It is ideal for polished concrete applications and other commercial decorative concrete flooring projects.

Product PreparationAll concrete must be clean, dry and free of grease, oil & any other contaminates. Deep scrub the floor using an orbital cleaning machine and black pad.
***Please refer to the Product Data Page for full Product Application information.
FOR PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY.
Mix, shake or stir thoroughly before applying.
H&C Lithium Protective Finish can be applied with a pump up sprayer or a high volume, low-pressure sprayer (HVLP) and spread with a 12-24" microfiber application pad. (The pad selection should be based on the size of the application area and the applicator’s comfort level.) Apply H&C Lithium Protective Finish at a rate of 2500-3000 sq. ft. per gallon depending on the surface profile spreading material thinly and evenly so as to completely cover the substrate. For best results apply product in 20' x 20' sections at a time. Once applied allow to dry for 10-15 minutes before burnishing/buffing with a high-speed machine (1500-2500 rpms) using a fine/ultrafine buffing pad. Burnishing of individual H&C Lithium Protective Finish coats is highly recommended to improve the curing process and overall shine.
IMPORTANT: Buffing between applications with a high speed-burnisher accompanied fine/ultrafine buffing pad system is the recommended method of application. If the floor is not burnished between applications you must wait a minimum of 30-60 minutes before reapplying. Repeated applications will build a stain resistant microfilm over the substrate. For best results apply thin multiple coats. If applied too thickly it may cure improperly, discolor, whiten or leave streaks and/or applicator marks. Avoid moisture and do not clean or scrub the surface for at least 72 hours. Do not place protective plastic sheeting, rubber matting, rugs or other material that can prevent proper curing and result in a cloudy or whitening effect.
Recoat: 30-60 minutes (Must be dry to touch)
