Liquid materials designed to penetrate concrete surfaces and chemically react to provide concrete curing, increase surface density, and durability as well as dustproof the concrete slab. These materials have a relatively low initial cost to install as opposed to many other flooring options and also can have low maintenance costs. Steel troweled concrete floors also take on a permanent and attractive marble-like sheen. The longer these floors are subjected to cleaning and traffic, the better they look. Treated floors also have fewer tire marks from forklifts and other equipment.
