SB2721 ASRestore Treatment A

SB 2721 ASRT A is a safe, non-toxic treatment for concrete affected by Alkali Silica Reaction (ASR). Formulated with lithium acetate and a surfactant package, the SB 2721 is designed for use in higher pH concrete. If diagnosed early, the ASRestore System properly applied can arrest the problem before the damage becomes too extensive. SB 2721 ASRT is part of the ShoreBest™ ASRestore™ suite of products for the prevention, remediation, and restoration of ASR and the damage caused by it.


Remove all sealers or coatings that may prohibit the absorption of the SB 2721 into the concrete. Clean the concrete with the proper ASRestore cleaning product to ensure removal of free of oils, dirt, and organic debris (contact your ShoreBest represent- ative for details). Provide protection for surfaces not receiving treatment and pedestrian traffic. Barriers should be placed on non-level concrete to prevent runoff of SB 2721 ASRT, thus allowing maximum absorption of product.

All projects should start with a test application to determine the suitability of the product, acceptable application methods
and absorption rates. Test areas of at least 100 square feet are
recommended and should involve the worst area to receive

Dilution and Coverage

Dilution: Product used undiluted — test application recommended.

Coverage: Rates generally need to be at least 6 gallons per 1000 ft² with higher rates required for more highly affected concrete.


In most applications, the objective is to impregnate as much SB 2721 as possible. Substrates displaying the characteristic map cracking damage require and should absorb more material than visually sound concrete. Flood surface of dry concrete by spray application to the point of ponding and allow absorption into the concrete. Repeat this process to a point of saturation where the concrete refuses additional absorption. In hot, dry or windy conditions, it will be advantageous to mist the surface with potable water to counteract the effects of water evapor- ation. If white salts appear on the surface, more water should be used to scrub remaining product into the surface.

SB 2721 ASRT A may also be applied by vacuum impregnation, pressure injection, or electrochemical means. Coverage rates will vary with application type and absorption rate of concrete. The minimum therapeutic amount of lithium needed to sup- press the ASR activity is dependent on the alkali content of the concrete and whether there is a continuing challenge by applied alkalis such as deicing salts. Petrographic and/or chemical analysis of a core sample may be necessary to determine optimum treatment protocol. Once the optimum amount of lithium ion is impregnated into the concrete, consideration should be given to using the appropriate AS Restore™ product to seal it in.

SB 2721 AS Restore Treatment is for use by professional contractors only. Multiple applications may be necessary to mitigate ASR. Preparing concrete with proper products is essential for best coverage. Keep from freezing.
