UNICURE - WB

Wax based concrete curing compound Advantages

 

Advantages

  • Give water repellent film
  • Allows continuous and gradual curing without constant attention.
  • Reduces surfaces temperature and crack formation.
  • Prevent early water evaporation from concrete.
  • No risk of poor curing.
  • Eliminates use of water curing, hessian or sand.
  • Non-toxic, Non-flammable.
  • Economical and easy to use.
  • Reflects more ultraviolet rays.
  • Facilitates the production of uniform concrete of maximum strength and durability.

Product

UNICURE-WB is a wax based concrete curing compound for fresh concrete, Screeds, Floors, Granolithic toppings and vertical surfaces. Complies to ASTMC-309-74.

PACKAGING

50,100,210 Litre drums.

WHERE TO USE

For efficient and positive curing of canal lining, roads, runway, external floor, bridges, column and beams, dams other types of concrete construction where water curing is difficult or unreliable.

METHOD OF USE

UNICURE-WB should be applied at the rate of 1 litre to 5.5m of the surface area, a single spray-applied coat is sufficient. Horizontal surfaces spray on UNICURE-WB as soon as any excess water has dried off. This is usually within 30 minutes of finishing vertical surface should be wetted with water after stripping the shuttering and just prior to the application of UNICURE-WB.

STORAGE

 UNICURE-WB has a shell life of at least one month in unopened drums, protecting it from direct sunlight.

HANDLING PRECAUTION

UNICURE-WB is water based, non-hazardous, and non-toxic. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

COMPOSITION

UNICURE-WB is a white liquid based on low viscosity wax emulsion and white pigments.

PURPOSE

To protect Concrete against excessive dying out by retaining the moisture and water loss from concrete.

DESCRIPTION

UNICURE-WB is a solution of special pigmented wax emulsion formulated for application to freshly- placed concrete. It dries to form impervious film on the surface. It ensures that the concrete keeps as moist as possible during the vital curing period. Efficient curing is particularly important in exposed situations such as concrete roads and runway etc., where the subject to the dying action of the heat, direct sunlight or wind. Traditional curing methods using wet hessian, Straw, sand or polythene sheeting are never completely efficient as it is not possible to exclude air entirely from the face of the concrete. These techniques waste time, labour and materials and in addition are difficult to apply to vertical surfaces.

UNICURE-WB Curing compound membrane replaces these older methods, by virtue of its easy application, higher efficiency and savings in labour and material costs.
