Accelerants

WCA200

A liquid shotcrete chemical bonding additive, high-performance set accelerator for use with wet or dry shotcrete mixtures. WCA200 is designed to improve the efficiency and productivity of shotcrete operations. WCA200 improves bulk properties, workability and slump, and will not initiate or promote corrosion.

Water Reducers

WRDA®64

A ready to use, low viscosity liquid, factory pre-mixed in exact proprotions to minimize handling & eliminate mistakes and guesswork. WRDA-64 is a polymer- based aqueous solution of complex organic compounds producing a concrete with lower water content (typically 8-10% reduction), greater plasticity and higher strength. Used in ready mix, job site and concrete paver plants; for normal and lightweight concrete; and in block, precast and prestress work. WRDA-64 offers significant advantages over single component water reducers. Performs especially well in concrete containing fly ash and other pozzolans.

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES:

  • Consistent water reduction and set times
  • Improves performance concrete containing supplementary cementitious materials
  • Produces concrete that is more workable, easy to place and finish
  • High compressive and flexural strengths

Zyla®R

A ready-to-use aqueous solution of organic compounds specifically designed as an admixture for Portland cement concrete. The ingredients are factory pre-mixed in exact proportions under strict quality control to provide uniform results. ZYLA R is used to retard the initial and final set of concrete. Along with set retardation, ZYLA R typically provides 5% water reduction in a concrete, and is designed for use on jobs where high temperatures or extended set times are prime factors.

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES:

  • No impact on concrete air content
  • Better control of water reduction and setting times as compared to traditional lignin-based water reducers
  • Synergistic performance of polycarboxylate-based mid-range and high-range water reducers, which includes water reduction and concrete strength and air control
  • In the hardened state, improves the compressive and flexural strengths at all ages of concrete versus traditional lignin-based water reducers
  • Linear set retardation with increasing addition rates

High Range Water Reducers

Daracem®100

A liquid admixture providing improved slump retention in flowing concrete. Ideal for low water/cement ratio concrete, designed for high early compressive & flexural strengths with exceptional workability and flow characteristics. Daracem®100 is the first high-range water reducer specifically formulated for extended slump life.

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES:

  • May be used as an ASTM C494 Type F and G high-range water-reducing admixture.
  • Can produce high slump flowable concrete with no loss in strength
  • Can produce low water/cement ratio concrete and therefore, high strengths
  • Concrete produced with Type I cement may be substituted for normal concrete produced with Type III cement to achieve early strengths
  • At high slump, exhibits no significant segregation in comparison to concrete without a superplasticizer at the same slump

Daracem®19

A liquid admixture for all applications that require highly flowable concrete where it is desirable to keep the water/cement ratio to a minimum while still achieving the degree of workability needed to provide easy placement, consolidation and high-early stripping strengths. Daracem®19 is a superior dispersing admixture having a material capacity to disperse the cement agglomerates normally found in a cement-water suspension.

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES:

  • Can produce high slump flowable concrete with no loss in strength
  • Can produce low water/cement ratio concrete and therefore, high strengths
  • Concrete produced with Type I cement may be substituted for normal concrete produced with Type III cement to achieve early strengths
  • At high slump, exhibits no significant segregation in comparison to concrete without a superplasticizer at the same slump

STRUX®85/50 Synthetic Macro Fiber Reinforcement

STRUX®85/50 synthetic macro fiber reinforcement is a unique form of high strength, high modulus synthetic macro reinforcement that is distributed throughout the concrete matrix. It may be used in a variety of redimix, precast and shotcrete applications including: bridge decks, overlays, whitetopping, pipes, vaults, septic tanks, tunnel linings, slope stabilization to improve the material properties including toughness (post crack energy absorption), impact and fatigue resistance.

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES:

  • When added to shotcrete and concrete, the primary benefit is a significant improvement in flexural toughness
