Qualiroc is a cost-effective surface hardener for concrete floors, for places where fibre suppression and colour are the priorities.

Qualiroc is a non-metallic dry-shake surface hardener for concrete floors. It contains graded quartz sand, colour pigments and mixing additives, blended together into a powder. It is applied to the top of freshly-poured concrete, either sprinkled as a powder or premixed as a ‘wet-on-wet’ slurry. When cured it creates a protective layer on top of the concrete which acts as a fibre suppressant and gives a durable, colourful coating.
Fibre suppressant for SFRC
Qualiroc is a very effective surface fibre suppressant for steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) floors. It improves the smoothness and quality of the floor’s surface, so it is easier for vehicles to travel across the floor, and safer for building users too. A wet-on-wet (fresh-on-fresh) slurry application will give the best fibre suppression results, as this creates a thicker protective layer on the concrete’s surface. Please refer to our FAQ on wet-on-wet application to learn more. Examples of both processes are shown in the videos at the end of this page.
Easy to clean
Because Qualiroc dry-shake creates a smooth surface on the concrete floor, it’s easy to keep the floor clean and looking smart, with a regular cleaning regime using recommended floor care products. It is also resistant to dust infiltration.
Qualiroc contains no metal particles, so it does not require any special coating to keep it rust free.
Qualiroc has a natural light reflectivity. In particular, pale coloured surface hardeners can help to brighten the interior of a building, which can help reduce lighting requirements and contribute to energy efficiency.
Coloured concrete floors, easily achieved
