Densifiers help contractors ward off moisture problems, but they are not just membranes or topical sealers. They react with the calcium hydroxide formed in hydration, filling pores in concrete and making the surface denser.
In a perfect world, moisture intrusion wouldn’t be a problem for any concrete floor. Unfortunately, even when all the proper steps are taken before the concrete is poured, moisture issues can come up. If moisture is the only challenge you’re facing, there are many products you can choose to combat it, such as topical sealers and crystalline waterproofing products. But if you’re trying to achieve multiple objectives — including moisture management — with just one product, a densifier may be just the thing you’re looking for.
When talking about densifiers, it is important to be clear about what a densifier is, and what it is not. It is not a moisture-proofer or a waterproofer or a water repellant.
