Day 1 is a finishing aid that lubricates the surface for faster, easier finishing. Day1 can also extend workable time by 15 to 30 minutes, even under adverse conditions such as high wind, heat, or low humidity. Day 1 eliminates the need to add water to the surface which can be detrimental to the surface performance of the slab. It can also be used to help finish shake on hardeners in low bleedwater environments. Day 1 is a safety net, giving finishers more time on the slab.
