We are trusted supplier of Concrete Curing Compound.
This Concure WB Curing Compound
widely used in costruction industry.
Uses of Concrete Curing Compound
For spraying on freshly cast concrete, or newly exposed concrete surfaces after removal of form work, to form a temporary membrane which will retain sufficient moisture for effective curing to take place. Used for concreting generally but especially useful for large areas of concrete such as pavements, runways and bridge decks; also for vertical or sloping surfaces as on towers, chimneys, canal linings, columns and beams, where water curing is difficult or unreliable.Advantages
of Concrete Curing Compound
- Single application : Forms moisture barrier for whole of the curing period
- No other curing necessary : Eliminates use of water, hessian or sand completely
- Reliable : No risk of erratic or poor curing and ensures that cement hydrates efficiently
- Ensures hard-wearing surface : Minimises risk of drying shrinkage, cracks and dusty surfaces
- Easy and safe spray application : Non-toxic and non flammable
Standards Compliance of Concrete Curing Compound
Curing efficiency : Concure WB curing agent complies with the internationally recognised ASTM C309-90 standard.
Description of Concrete Curing Compound
Concure W B is a white, low viscosity wax emulsion which incorporates a special alkali reactive emulsion breaking system. This system ensures that the emulsion breaks down to form a non penetrating continuous film immediately upon contact with a cementitious surface. This impervious film prevents excessive water evaporation which in turn permits more efficient cement hydration, thus reducing shrinkage and increasing durability.
Once formed, the membrane will remain on the concrete surface until eventually broken down and eroded by natural weathering. Where it is required to apply a further treatment to such concrete surface, it may be necessary to remove the membrane remaining after curing by wire brushing or other mechanical means.
The use of curing membranes on internal floor slabs is generally to be avoided where additional surface finishes are to be applied. Concure WB is however ideal where the concrete surface of a floor slab is to be left as 'finished'.
