TK 290

TK Product’s TK-290 is the contractors first choice when it comes to a penetration water repellant for concrete and other porous surfaces. It helps protect concrete from salts and freeze-thaw conditions that can damage the concrete surface. Available in standard VOC and a Low VOC option.



TK-290 is a low viscosity, multi-substrate, salt and water repellent. Engineered to prevent damage from environmental conditions including: de-icing agents, salts, freeze damage, efflorescence, scaling, and surface popping. 290 is a solvent-based formulation to penetrate up to 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) and chemically bond with the substrate to become a permanent part, prohibiting salt, water, chloride ion, and acid rain intrusion. This protection ensures the longest life-cycle to the substrate by preventing surface deterioration.

The recommended coverage rate for most concrete substrates is 125 square feet per gallon. Very porous surfaces may require two coats. TK-290 is suitable for both vertical and horizontal, above-grade exterior surfaces. Typical surfaces include:

  • Concrete & Cementitious Surfaces
  • Pavers / Brick / Clay Brick\
  • Travertine
  • Limestone
  • Slate
  • All Light Commercial
  • Ramps
  • Parking Structures
  • Marine Piers & Pilings
  • Multi-Family Housing
