SURFACE TREATMENT


One of our core competencies is Surface Treatment for the construction industries, including ready-mix, precast and manufactured concrete products and cement manufacturing units.

Surface treatment is an economical and effective method to improve the quality of surface layer and protect the concrete structure compared with other methods, such as decrease water to cement ratio and add admixtures etc. There are a variety of surface treatments that can be used for protection of concrete . Use of correct product for surface treatment and the appropriate application leads to a longer service life, an extended aesthetic life of decorative surfaces, and provides a better return on investment. Firstchoice Ready Mix offers a wide range of products under surface treatment

  1. Curing compounds
  2. Mould release agent / shuttering oil
  3. Rust remover, cleaning and etching agent
  4. Pumping Aid - lubricator for concrete pump hoses and lines

CURING COMPOUND


Curing plays an important role on strength development and durability of concrete. ... Properly cured concrete has an adequate amount of moisture for continued hydration and development of strength, volume stability, resistance to freezing and thawing, and abrasion and scaling resistance. Even the best quality concrete can fail if it is not cured properly.

Curing compounds are the solution where wet curing is impossible . These materials are applied by rollers, sprays, brushes etc onto wet concrete to act as membranes, which retard water evaporation while the concrete is curing. Curing compounds reduce rapid volume change in the concrete, thus reducing shrinkage and maintain the specified strength requirements. These are suitable for areas of directly exposed to sunlight, heavy winds and other environmental influences. these can be used for curing concrete pavements, airport runway, and bridge deck.

Used for curing of:

  • Concrete pavements,
  • Airport runway,
  • Bridge decks
  • Precast concrete components
  • Roof slabs, columns and beams.
  • Chimneys, cooling towers High rise structures.

Firstchoice Readymix - Construction Chemical Division is offering following Curing compound having high degree of curing efficiency; FC-CUREWELL RB : Is a non-degrading, continuous film forming, aluminized, polymeric resin based curing compound, suitable for spray application to freshly poured concrete.

FC-CUREWELL RB is available as a silver color liquid. The resultant film retains sufficient moisture in the concrete to ensure full hydration of the cement, essential for optimum strength development. The cured concrete is typically harder and exhibits a dust free surface with a reduced incidence of drying shrinkage cracks.

Uses

As a more effective and economical alternative to hessian and water and polythene curing regimes. Suitable for use on all large area concrete surfaces, such as airport runways, concrete roads and bridgeworks

It is not recommended for application when subsequent renders, toppings or coatings are to be applied within the degradation time unless it is removed by cleaning if insufficient time has elapsed to achieve full degradation.

FC-CUREWELL RB has been tested in accordance with BS 7542 - 1992 and the curing efficiency is greater than 90%.

FC-CUREWELL WB : Is a white pigmented membrane forming wax based curing compound, suitable for curing of newly placed or freshly de-shuttered concrete, assists in the retention of water during hydration. The resultant film retains sufficient moisture in the concrete to ensure full hydration of the cement, essential for optimum strength development. Membrane cured concrete is typically harder and exhibits a dust free surface with a reduced incidence of drying shrinkage cracks.

Uses

As a more effective and economical alternative to hessian and water and polythene curing regimes. Suitable for use on all large area concrete surfaces, such as airport runways, concrete roads and bridgeworks

It is not recommended for application when subsequent renders, toppings or coatings are to be applied within the degradation time unless it is removed by cleaning if insufficient time has elapsed to achieve full degradation.

FC-CUREWELL WB complies to ASTM C309 Type II Class A BS 7542: 1992

FC-CUREWELL ARB is a concrete curing compound based on a membrane forming acrylic emulsion in water. The material is liquid and sprayable on freshly poured concrete. The resultant film retains moisture in the concrete to ensure full hydration of the cement and makes optimum strength development of the concrete possible. Membrane cured concrete is typically harder and exhibits a dust free surface with a reduced incidence of drying shrinkage cracks. It is also suitable for use as a sealer and dust proofer for floors and walls. Particularly suitable for situations where after trades, such as paints or renders, are to be applied. The acrylic based concrete curing compound has the property of adhesion to the succeeding plaster. It is used to protect the concrete from the loss of water during the initial time of curing.

Uses

FC-CUREWELL ARB can be used in a wide range of applications:

  • High rise construction to eliminate water curing
  • Floors, warehouses, slabs and columns
  • Dustproofing concrete walls and floors
  • Clear sealer for concrete
  • Self-curing, primer system to subsequent coverings

FC-CUREWELL ARB Complies to ASTM C309 Type 1, class A and ASTM C1315.
