Concrete is porous, and contains a network of capillaries and pores that are formed
during the hardening process. This process also creates Calcium Silicate Hydrate, or C-S-
H, which is what gives concrete its hardness and strength, plus an unused by-product
called calcium hydroxide, commonly known as “lime.”
CreteDefender P2’s formulation penetrates into the concrete and reacts with the lime in
concrete to create more C-S-H, which then fills the pore and capillary structure,
preventing water and the natural and man-made chemicals it carries from entering the
concrete and causing damage.
CreteDefender P2 is better because it...
• Is not a coating.
• Can’t wear off. It becomes a permanent part of the concrete mix.
• Permanently protects concrete from deterioration caused by salts, freeze/thaw cycles,
abrasion, sand erosion, water, chlorides, and sulfates.
• Saves you money by dramatically reducing costs of maintenance and repair.
• Is quick and easy to apply.
• Is environmentally safe, non-hazardous, non-toxic and non-flammable.
• Has no smell, no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
• Arrests damage already occurring in your concrete.
• Is not affected by traffic, abrasion, UV exposure, or weather.
Where CreteDefender P2 is Used:
CreteDefender P2 can be used anywhere you want to keep concrete from deteriorating.
• Does abrasion or erosion wear down your concrete?
• Do chemical spills damage your concrete?
• Do you want to avoid the cost and hassle of repairing or replacing concrete?
• Do you want to keep your concrete looking the way it looks now?
• Do you want to prevent concrete dusting or scaling?
• Do you want to protect your concrete’s reinforcement?
If you answer “yes” to any of those questions, you have a use for CreteDefender P2.
* Inside or outside, even in extreme heat
* Broom finished or machine troweled
* Slab, pre-cast, structural
* Horizontal or vertical
* Old or new
CreteDefender P2 is for use on portland cement-based concrete and mortar, with a
minimum compressive strength of 4000 PSI, and a water-to-cement ratio
between .36:1 and .5:1. It will not work on non-cementatious materials, CMU’s, block,
brick, or other porous cementatious structures such as pervious concrete. It is not
