Hot, dry or windy conditions can often cause the bleed water on newly laid concrete to evaporate extremely quick, making it difficult to judge the correct time to finish the surface.
CCS Aliphatic Alcohol is an easy to use, water based finishing compound which effectively controls the evaporation of bleed water – thereby improving the quality of the final concrete surface. It is generally applied after screeding and bull floating operations, but prior to final finishing processes.
- Water based and environmentally friendly.
- economical and easy to apply.
- Improves the quality of concrete as a result of controlled water evaporation.
- Reduces the likelihood of crusting or dusting on the concrete surface.
- Can reduce the incidence of plastic shrinkage.
- Eliminates the requirement for extra mixing water to compensate for hot weather pours.
The correct curing of concrete plays an important role in the strength development and durability of concrete. Curing compounds are used to seal the surface of fresh concrete and prevent rapid loss of moisture. They are seen as an efficient, cost-effective means of curing concrete and can eliminate the need for messy water curing methods and the use of plastic sheeting.
CCS have a water based curing compound, Slab Clad R, which is applied to freshly laid concrete. It is a class Z film forming compound offering high water retention capabilities compliant to AS 3799-1998 Appendix B.
- Water based and environmentally friendly – low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds)
- Assists in the development of strength, abrasion resistance and durability of the concrete.
- Provides rapid film formation.
- Reduces the likelihood of cracking or dusting on the concrete surface.
- Easy to use – eliminates messy water curing or polyethelene film.
