Super-Krete Glo-Kote

Glo-Kote is Super-Krete's most recent product development, but it’s not entirely new. It’s a spin off of our oldest top seller, Bond-Kote(R). Bond-Kote is a ready-mix concrete resurfacing product (just add water) that is used to repair, restore, resurface existing concrete to make it look brand new. Designed to go up to 1/8”, it can be applied by trowel, squeegee, sprayer, broom, brush and is extremely versatile.

The Bond-Kote formulation has been proven to work in even the most extreme climates with incredible success for over 25 years. In developing Glo-Kote, we incorporated photoluminescent aggregates to the Bond-Kote formulation to add the glow-in-the-dark effect without altering the characteristics of Bond-Kote in any way. Users can expect the same results from Glo-Kote that they get with Bond-Kote, but have the added benefit of the glow effect.

Glo-Kote provides full depth glow and the glow factor is seamless throughout the product. We anticipate this product to provide tremendous cost savings where it is used versus the need for electricity. Though it may not fully illuminate an area, the glow factor attributes to safety and guidance while having a nice aqua visible glow. The product is recharged continually by ambient light sources. The most effective light source is natural sunlight. Exposure to natural sunlight for two hours may yield up to 12 hours of glow at night.

There is a lot of talk over how much money people will spend to have a “green product”. The cost of Glo-Kote is certainly not “cheap” – but we in no way incorporated the overall “value” or “savings” the product will bring into the cost of the material. The cost is driven by the unique raw materials used to create the glow.

The best application of Glo-Kote is performed by sprayer because the greatest amount of area can be covered with this method. When applied by sprayer, one can cover approximately 7 square feet per 5 pound unit of material. Glo-Kote will cover 1 square foot per pound when applied at 1/8”.
