Inventions of the 21st century
The texture and coloration of the KF-F layer applied
to a damaged concrete structure by painting roll.
KALMATRON® KF-F layer applied to a clinker kiln foundation with a surface temperature of 185F or 85C.
KALMATRON® KF-F layer applied on the rocky wall of a light house repaired with KF-SEA concrete.
KF-F was also prepared by using only sea water.
DESCRIPTION OF KF-F
Light-gray to ivory colored coarse powder; after being mixed with water, it becomes a light yellow solid, viscous
and highly sticky to any surface of structure.
USES OF KF-F
KALMATRON® KF-F is the strongest protective coating for old and/ or deteriorated concrete and masonry
structures. Provides superficial density with highest resistance to chemical and environmental corrosions.
KF-F is liquid-impermeable and is the best available coating against abrasion, vapor and liquid transmission,
and freeze-thaw cycles. Applicable in dry, hot, cold and damp environments by brush or spray.
PREPARATION OF KF-F
Add four parts of KF-F to one part of water in a volume ratio and mix for 5 minutes by electric drill-mixer.
PREPARATION OF SURFACE
Wash the surface to clear off any removable foreign materials. The surface of trafficable floors should be soaked
with the KALMATRON® KF-G or well steamed and washed with acid-water solution.
Apply the KF-F mixture using a spray gun for plastering jobs or with a brush onto the wet surface of concrete by
a layer from 1 mm to 2 mm.
It is a necessity for very dry conditions only: hose down with water after 12 hours.
EESENTIALS & BENEFITS
KALMATRON® KF-F is the only sprayable product that works in the sewer, acidic, alkali, and petroleum environments as a continuous coating. Recommended for
building new and renovating of old heavy traffic floors. Very effective for
renovation of cracked concrete structures.

Relined aged stucco by KF-F on apartment building is impermeable to the water and absolutely resistant to the micro biological contaminations.
The texture and coloration of the KF-F layer
applied to aged stuccoed wall by the mortar gun.
Isolation of the canals on nuclear plant by spray of KALMATRON® KF-F layer resulted in a solid glassy surface without post hardening defects.
- Provides passivating of exposed rebar from rusting.
- Stops vapor transmission right after application.
- The best for preservation of abandoned structures.
- Dry KF-F powder sprayed by mortar gun stops leaks,
seepage, and resurfaces damp building structures.
- The most economical for relining of metal and ceramic
pipes per square unit of inner walls.
Relined corroded concrete of the canals by KF-F
is stable to the attacks of hot neurons by its glassy and thin layer with Coefficient of Linear Expansion equal to the underneath concrete.
