Treatments for Concrete
Concrete floors are a type of continuous flooring composed of mixtures of cement and additives.
The surface of concrete is porous and absorbent, hence it’s important to apply adequate dirt and stain protection.

USES OF CONCRETE
Concrete is used in infrastructures and in industrial and residential construction, such as industrial flooring, floors with prefab elements and residential flooring.
HOW TO PROTECT CONCRETE FROM DIRT AND STAINS
Concrete is a porous material, therefore it’s important to apply a final dust resistant, water and oil repellent sealer to increase the material’s durability over time. The infiltration of water particles or chemical agents in the pores cause the deterioration of the surface. In addition, these infiltrations compromise the aesthetic and mechanical characteristics of concrete over time.
THE FILA TREATMENT SYSTEM FOR CONCRETE
For post-installation cleaning use PS87 PRO, a specific cleaner for concrete, following the dilution and instructions on the label.
STAIN-PROOFING AND DUST RESISTANT PROTECTION FOR CONCRETE
FILA has a variety of sealers in its product range ideal for the protection of concrete.
On indoor surfaces in garages and warehouses, FILA recommends BETON GARAGE PROTECTOR.
For stain-proofing protection of concrete with an enhanced look for both indoors and outdoors, FILA recommends applying CONCRETE SHIELD. The product penetrates into the pores of the concrete, making the surface water and oil repellent, and hence stain resistant. Additionally, the product enhances the colouring of the surface and consolidates the cement dust to the concrete substrate, making it dust resistant.
On the other hand, for a natural surface finish that keeps the natural colour of concrete unaltered, use MP90 ECO XTREME, extreme protection against stains.
FINISH FOR INDOOR CONCRETE SURFACES
For indoor surfaces, after the stain-proofing treatment, we recommend using a protective wax to make regular maintenance easier and protect the floor from wear due to pedestrian passage.
Choose the surface finish you prefer: SATIN (for a satin finish), MATT (for a matte finish) or LONGLIFE (for a glossy finish).
