Protection & durability system for exposed concrete.
Did you know – Protection is essential for concrete to last for its intended service life, and keep its appearance for the life of the concrete.
Why Does Exposed Concrete Needs Protection to Extend Durability?
Exposed concrete needs durability protection because:
- Floor slabs are subject to traffic, loads, abrasion and carbonation
- Walls may be exposed to weather conditions and contaminants that bring about deterioration
- Ceilings can emit dust as they age, resulting in health issues
- Maintenance costs need to be reduced, and the visual appearance enhanced
Leaving the concrete unprotected is not an option.
This is why it is important to protect and extend the durability of the concrete from day one. Our hydrogel concrete solutions offer many benefits for exposed concrete.

Why Choose Hydrogel Treatments for Exposed concrete Surfaces?
Long-term durability – a permanent treatment right through the slab, that can’t be reversed.
Permanent anti-dusting – protect against carbonation.
Enhanced Curing – Added benefit of curing enhancement. Save time and money!
Moisture Retention – Complies with the moisture retention requirements of AS3799.
Minimal Downtime – The slab can be walked on after as little as 1 hour following application.
Reduced Delamination – Treatments penetrate up to 150mm avoiding the risk of delamination.
Does not cause tyre squeal – unlike topical sealers (car park floor slabs etc.).
Sustainable / Environment and occupant friendly / Nil VOC and water-based
Compatibility – reduce costs on work prior to subsequent finishes such as line marking.

CHECK OUT THIS FLOOR, over 10 YEARS ON!
A quick fly-through of an exposed retail floor.
This store floor is subjected to foot traffic from 1000s of people every day. This was treated with AQURON 1000 hydrogel treatment.
The video is taken 10 years later, and the floor is still in tip-top condition!
