English Herkulit Top

Herkulit Top is a ready-mixed dry shake hardener to be applied on freshly laid, damp concrete surfaces. Herkulit is made of pure, specially granulated quartz, Dynagrip and a special cement based on Portland cement.

• Herkulit Top 100 for concrete slabs with wcr 0,57-0,60
• Herkulit Top 200 for concrete slabs with wcr 0,54-0,57
• Herkulit Top 300 for concrete slabs with wcr 0,50-0,54
The recommendations above diminish the risk of surface cracks and lime deposits.

Recommended minimum concrete quality in relation to slump:
Slump < 150 mm concrete quality C28/35
Slump > 150mm concrete quality C30/37
Herkulit Top absorbs moisture considerably faster than competing
products, which facilitates and ensures a better final result.

Why chose Herkulit dry shake hardener?
• Herkulit Top is classified as very heavy duty concrete according
to EU 206-1.
• Herkulit Top is self-polishing – the more wear, the better finish.
• Herkulit Top (light colors) reflects light.
• Herkulit Top does not attract marks from forklift wheels.
•Herkulit Top replaces epoxy and polyurethane paint and has better
wear resistance.
• Herkulit Top is applied on freshly laid damp concrete.
• Herkulit Top contains no metal aggregate and therefore does not rust.
• Herkulit Top resists grease, some solvents and low alkaline solutions.
• Herkulit Top is non-slip and easy to maintain

ABRASION
The hardest attack on concrete comes from abrasion due to wear and tear from cars, machines, forklifts and pedestrians.
Independent test results show that Herkulit Top increases wear resistance up to 20 times. See table below according to British
Standard (EN/BS 13892-4:2002 and EN/BS 8204-2:2003).

Herkulit® Top dry shake – laying instruction (manually with spreader)

1. Lay the concrete base as evenly as possible. Note that a lower “slump” on the concrete base
ensures better bonding and reduces the color differences.
2. Apply Herkulit Top when the surface is “walkable” and the “foot print” is approx 1 mm. By
applying as late as possible, the risk for discoloring is minimized.
3. Power trowel the surface before applying Herkulit Top. Thereafter apply approx. 2,5 kg per m2
as evenly as possible, using a spreader. Let the Herkulit Top absorb moisture from the concrete
base and then power trowel the Herkulit Top with a trowel pan.
4. After the second troweling, apply the remaining 2,5 kg per m2 with a spreader as evenly as
possible. Let the Herkulit absorb moisture from the concrete base. (This should take minimum 5
minutes and maximum 15 minutes.)
5. When the Herkulit has absorbed moisture, power trowel with pans 5-6 times in both directions
for best possible flatness and surface finish. Use LC Composite pan for lighter colors. 1200 mm
pan increases flatness.
6. Finally power trowel the surface with blades minimum 3-4 times in both directions. Trowel
with almost flat blades the first time. Second time with slightly tilted blades. The last time
round, leave an opening at the leading edge of the blade at maximum 10 mm.
7. Immediately after the last troweling, treat the concrete for hardening:
• water and plastic film for 14 days (100% effective)
Where water and plastic film is not practical:
• Lindolit 1:2 (84% effective) + water and plastic film for 7 days (100% effective)
Where the above does not work:
• Lindolit 1:1 (84% effective)
For aesthetic polishing or extended stain protection, see next page.
Maintenance: We recommend cleaning with Lindec Concrete Soap in a scrubber-dryer
machine, using a red scouring pad.
