Lythic Polished Concrete Specification
This guide specification is provided by Solomon Colors and is intended to be used as a specification for the use of Lythic Colloidal Silica for polished concrete floors or surfaces. The guide is written around the Construction Specification Institute (CSI) format, and may be used with most master specifications. Additional specification assistance and more in-depth information, please contact Solomon Colors for assistance.
Technical Information Sheets (TIS)
Lythic Densifier & XL TIS
Lythic Densifier and Lythic XL Densifier with reactive colloidal silica are densifiers/hardeners for concrete, used to improve the performance and appearance of concrete floors. They increase surface hardness, compressive strength, abrasion-resistance, and liquid penetration resistance.
Lythic Protector TIS
Lythic Protector is a colloidal silica-based, breathable concrete sealer that protects and enhances polished concrete floors. It is a unique product that improves surface hardness through colloidal silica reaction during application. It is specially formulated to reduce liquid penetration, enhance color, increase gloss reading and improve traction of polished concrete surfaces.
Lythic SPD Protector TIS
Lythic SPD Protector is a high performance coating designed specifically for the protection of polished concrete surfaces. Lythic SPD Protector utilizes new protection technology that achieves resistance to stains, acid etching, and liquid penetration similar to epoxy coatings while remaining breathable. SPD (Silica-Polymer-Dispersion) is a two-part polymer combined with nano-sized colloidal silica. Lythic SPD Protector bonds directly to the concrete, enhancing color, and providing significantly greater protection and longer service life than conventional stain protectors or guards. The nano-sized technology allow Lythic SPD Protector to produce a super thin film, retaining the appearance of polished concrete.
Lythic Cleaner TIS
Lythic Cleaner is an exciting product that hardens and enhances hard troweled floors and polished concrete. Unlike traditional cleaners, Lythic Cleaner is produced with colloidal silica designed to bond to other Lythic Products used in advanced floor finishes.
DAY1 is a colloidal silica finishing aid that lubricates the surface for faster, easier finishing. DAY1 extends workable time under adverse conditions such as high wind, heat, or low humidity. DAY1 eliminates the need to add water to the surface which can be detrimental to the surface performance of the slab. It can also be used to help finish shake-on hardeners in low bleed-water environments. Concrete with high cement, air, silica fume, or silica flower are easier to finish when DAY1 is applied.
Brickform Pro-Dye TIS
Brickform Pro-Dye penetrates the surface of newly cured or existing non-porous concrete, creating a layer of translucent color that dries quickly and will not chip, crack, or peel. The colors produced in each section of concrete will be unique with captivating, multi-colored intensities that become a permanent part of the concrete. Colors can be combined to create an unlimited number of color variations. When applied properly, Pro-Dye creates intense color that has a look similar to the mottling effect of acid stain. Brickform Pro-Dye is packaged in liquid form to be mixed in proportion to acetone.
Brickform Stealth-Seal TIS
Brickform Stealth-Seal is non-film forming water and oil repellent that effectively protects and preserves the natural appearance of any surface it’s applied on.

Lythic Pro-Dye Color Chart
Brickform Pro-Dye penetrates the surface of concrete and cementitious overlays, creating a layer of translucent color that dries quickly and will not chip, crack, or peel. Pro-Dye is designed to work with the Professional Concrete Polishing System for the coloring process in polishing floors. Pro-Dye is also excellent in vertical applications, stencils, and logos because it dries so quickly. Pro-Dye colors are vivid with unique multi-colored intensities, similar to the mottling effect of acid stain. Colors can be combined to create an unlimited number of color variations.
