Sustainable solutions that let you minimise the risk

finishing concrete slab

SlabArmor™ has redefined the science of finishing concrete slab

After over 75 years of innovation and achievement as the world’s leading specialist in flat floor placement and concrete finishing technology, MQ Whiteman has now raised the bar once again with the introduction of a range of revolutionary new, environmentally friendly chemical solutions.  Introducing SlabArmor™, now available in the UK exclusively from Multiquip (UK) Limited.

SlabArmor™ Starter

SlabArmor™ Closer

SlabArmor™ Plus

These are three game-changing finishing concrete slab product ranges that will change forever the entire concept of concrete finishing techniques: the way concrete slab is placed, the way concrete slab is finished and the way concrete slab is maintained.

SlabArmor™ Starter is a trowel-on patented curing formula that extends the material life by closing capillaries as part of the finishing concrete slab process.   It eliminates the transmission of water and vapour, which in turn can lead to the growth of mould and bacteria. SlabArmor™ Starter acts as an effective concrete finishing aid by retaining water content for weeks, if not months on end.

Although it is invisible to the eye and no one but you will know that it is there, it promotes denser concrete slab insulation qualities, flatter floors and at the same time, it minimises cracking or curing and abrasion. It also hardens the slab in one simple application and thanks to its low pH qualities it produces the best-ever hardening characteristics together with a longer-lasting finish, making it the ideal finishing concrete slab product.

SlabArmor™ Closer effectively dust roofs and hardens the concrete slab in one single, simple spray-on application.  Thanks to its low pH qualities, you are assured that SlabArmor™ Closer will ensure the most effective wearing characteristics possible, along with a longer-lasting finish.   SlabArmor™ Closer operates by closing the concrete’s capillaries within the slab thereby eliminating the transmission of water and vapour in order to substantially increase the life expectancy of the concrete surface.

SlabArmor™ Plus is an innovative family of professional products all of which are formulated with environmentally neutral compositions that have been developed specifically to improve the efficient cleaning and protection of concrete surfaces.  The range includes:

SlabArmor™ Plus Clean & Condition

SlabArmor™ Plus Condition & Restore

SlabArmor™ Plus Seal & Shine

Through on-going use, this dependable range of environmentally responsible products creates a denser, more sustainable finish that noticeably continues to develop over time.

New in this week

Plate Compactor

Just arrived, our new, improved small plate compactor

Here is some big news for every contractor who ever has to deal with small patching jobs or small concrete placement applications. At Multiquip we have, this very week, taken delivery of the new and impressively innovate MVC40HF small plate compactor. Small, yes. But most definitely very big in terms of efficiency, rugged construction and robust reliability. This is, without doubt, the best small plate compactor we’ve ever had and we genuinely believe it’s going to make life easier and more profitable for concrete contractors everywhere.

So what makes the MVC40HF so good?

Well, first of all, its size – or should we say, lack of it. The plate measures only 420mm x 295mm (16.5in x 11.75in) but… and it is a very big but… the plate has been made with solid, extra-thick, high-strength steel that has been engineered with smooth, bevelled edges so that it guarantees you maximum manoeuvrability even in narrow, difficult to access areas and of course you can expect the longest possible wear time. That in itself is going to save you money on replacements.

The other big improvement we’ve made is that we have designed the MVC40HF with a 1.619cf Honda GX100 engine. It’s been proved all over the world that this is one of the best in its class. Ultra-reliable. Superbly powerful.  Impressively economic to run.  

Even that still doesn’t cover all the benefits you can expect from this new state-of-the-art small plate compactor.

It’s small and it’s lightweight so it is absolutely perfect when you’re working on small compaction jobs, especially within tight, confined areas.

Its overall length is just 910mm (36.5in) 

Its overall width is a convenient 295mm (11.7in)

Its overall height is a compact 920mm (36.5in)

Its weight is a mere 50kg (110lb)

These statistics are impressive in themselves, but even that is not all because as a bonus we have designed in a very useful folding handle so that it couldn’t be easier to stow the MVC40HF in the back of your van or on a small trailer.

With so many ‘small’ improvements, plus exclusive big performance qualities and unbeatable Multiquip reliability all built in, the new MVC40HF small plate compactor has got to part of every concrete contractor’s compaction kit.

Like to see it in action?

Give us a call and we will be more than happy to arrange a demonstration so you can discover how our new MVC40HF small plate compactor is one of the biggest breakthroughs yet in compaction technology. You can call us on 0161 339 2223, you can also email us at: or you can get in touch by using the online form that can be found on our Contact page.plate compactor

The answer to your sprayers

Concrete Sprayer

The Multiquip WSC55 Spray Station is the most efficient and most economical curing of concrete system … ever

Occasionally … just occasionally, a product is introduced onto the market that completely revolutionises a process and renders all the existing technology totally outdated. The introduction of the Multiquip WSC55 Spray Station has done exactly that and in doing so it has established impressive new standards for the curing of concrete and sealing efficiency. It guarantees the most exceptional and most consistent results every time you use it; delivering improved performance and launching new technology that substantially cuts curing agent consumption, slashes labour time and dramatically reduces overall operating costs like never before.

This revolutionary new Spray Station is built around a powerful 5.5hp Honda engine that is designed to provide the highest levels of reliability and performance as you’ve never seen before.

But that is just the beginning. The rugged transporter trolley runs on smooth, foam-filled tyres that mean no punctures, no risk of damage to the floors and easy manoeuvrability. It is built to carry either one 55 gallon (240 litre) or four 5 gallon (18 litre) drums. That’s more than enough sealant for large curing of concrete operations. For added convenience, we have also included a built-in worktable to safely carry your tools etc, while the integrated hose rack can house up to 250 feet (76 metres) of hose.

This impressive Spray Station comes complete with a 50 foot (15 metre) hose (additional hose lengths are available) and a 5 foot (1.5 metre) spray lance that disperses a fine, even spray to ensure maximum, consistent coverage with the minimum of waste.

For convenience and ease of transportation, we’ve designed the trolley to fit comfortably into a standard Transit van, but as an added benefit we’ve included a useful tow-bar so that you can easily move it around the job, by hand or forklift, as required.

Now here is how you can make massive savings on your curing of concrete sealing agent.

Unique to the Multiquip WSC55 Spray Station we have designed in a compact engine-driven compressor. So instead of having to waste all the costly concrete sealant that remains in the hose (just think how much a 50-foot hose will hold) you can now very simply and quickly recycle it back into the storage drum ready to be used on the next job. It won’t take very long before you really do appreciate the significant savings on sealant liquid – and cost – you now enjoy.

Need more proof of the savings available?

“One of our clients used to use three alternative-brand sprayers and employ up to six men for their curing of concrete operations. Now, since taking delivery of the Multiquip WSC55 Spray Station, they need only the one sprayer and just two operatives.”

To learn more about the Multiquip WSC55 Spray Station and how you can cut the cost of your curing of concrete operations, or to arrange a demonstration, please do not hesitate to contact us.
