History of Protec III: Original and Cornerstone Coatings.

Cornerstone Coatings, a Direct to Consumer Manufacturer.

Now a second-generation concrete coating manufacturer, Cornerstone Coatings was started in 1999 with Protec III by Murray LeComte, a chemist by practice, an avid self-made inventor, businessman and father.
"If you mix it together and it doesn't smoke, keep going."

After creating over 45 unique products, the business consolidated its focus to Protec III: Original (Originally named Protec III LSF Chem RX) in 2019.


A Christian Family-owned Canadian Business.

Starting from humble beginnings in Bruno, Saskatchewan, Cornerstone Coatings is now a multi-national manufacturer, reaching across Canada, Australia, Mexico, and The United States.

Protec III: Original was formerly named Protec III LSF Chem RX, the product remains exactly the same. Specifications requiring this product should be updated to use the new name "Protec III: Original".

Product Uses:

Precast Manufacturing:

Prevent bleed water, shrinkage cracks, and efflorescence in one step during manufacturing precast, no washing or removing the product needed at any point. – Apply either during normal finishing, after removing from the mould, or both.


Commercial Finishing:

Cure and harden your floors with a same-day application requiring no scrubbing or cleaning. Use the same product for dust-proofing and densifying the surface with this non-membrane forming product.


Residential Construction:

Streamline your construction process with a single solution that cures, dust-proofs, polishes, blocks efflorescence, and helps ensure your concrete is finished without issues.

A Hardener, Densifier, and Polish Aid for Your Concrete.

Harden and Densify, Dust-proof, and Polish Concrete.

One of the surprising uses of Protec III: Original is that it's also a complete standalone densifier and hardener.

Protec III: Original works through a chemical reaction between cement and our Liquid Silica Fume to increase density, producing a harder surface that permanently polishes and dust-proofs with vehicle and foot traffic.

You can substitute any normal requirement of a densifier or hardener with Protec III: Original. In addition, it works as your densifier when polishing concrete.


Prevent Efflorescence and Carbonation.

You can prevent efflorescence and carbonation by chemically neutralizing any extra calcium hydroxide in the surface of new concrete.

Neutralizing the free lime before it can become efflorescence after the concrete is exposed to moisture or carbonation after it has been exposed to carbon dioxide is the best way to prevent future problems.
