Lithium silicates are aqueous solutions resulting from combinations of lithium oxide (Li2O) and colloidal silica (SiO2) in varying proportions. The characteristics of these soluble silicates and colloidal silica combinations is that alkalinity levels are higher than colloidal silica, but much lower than sodium- and potassium silicates. In addition, they possess extremely good film forming, hardening and binding properties enhancing abrasion, gloss, adhesion and improved durability (weather resistance and anti-soiling properties). Ideally suited for concrete surface coatings, penetrating stains, specialty paints, primers as they are less alkaline and less soluble once they are dried, especially when modified with silane coupling agents. We offer various grades based on molar ratios and chemistries for formulating chemistries.
