Matrix Pro® is a ZERO-VOC, nonflammable, non-toxic, potassium silicate based penetrating crystalline sealer that internally strengthens, waterproofs and primes concrete, masonry and cementitious materials. Matrix Pro® reacts with free calcium hydroxide forming a silica hydrogel that fills the capillaries within the matrix. This hydrogel permanently seals the matrix internally, greatly reducing the ingress of damaging moisture and chloride ions, while simultaneously maintaining breathability of the substrate and allowing trapped moisture vapor to escape. Matrix Pro® also acts as a primer for breathable surface coatings and systems. It does not alter the breathability of these coatings and may increase their adhesion and performance characteristics. Matrix Pro® can also be used in conjunction with non-breathable coatings and systems.
Foxfire Matrix Pro® is suitable for use on freshly cured, aged and green concrete as well as on brick and masonry. Typical uses include but are not limited to: concrete decks, sidewalks, driveways, building facades, highway barriers, parapets, precast concrete structures, seawalls, retaining walls, stadiums, concourses, public buildings, amusement parks, racetracks, airports, train and bus stations, and other brick, masonry, or poured-in-place concrete structures.
Foxfire Matrix Pro® has a long and successful track record of being used as the crucial first line of defense in numerous, multi-layered gunite, shotcrete and concrete
vault waterscapes. By treating the concrete shell before applying plaster and other secondary coatings, Matrix Pro® will permanently protect subsequent layers against the harmful effects of ASR, efflorescence and moisture drive, while simultaneously enhancing the bond strength and overall lifespan.
DRY TIME: Dry to touch in 2 to 6 hours depending upon temperature and humidity.
COVERAGE: Test patterns should be performed to determine best approach and estimated coverage. Different concrete and masonry composites may require different system approaches. Contact Foxfire for further information.
