Todays' product range comprises
For the Pre-Caster:
a non-solvent, self-neutralising surface de-activator in eleven
controlled exposure depths.
etching gel for very fine slip resistant texture.
CSE NOVA grade 005 and MicroGEL FORTE
are used both separately
or in combination for the production of very fine exposure of small fraction
aggregates in a face mix.
Fluid is an admixture specially developed for the production of
exposed aggregate, which improves workability and through restricting
segregation of the aggregate within the mix, helps ensure even distribution
of aggregate to be exposed.
For the Contractor:
– a premium top surface retarder, used primarily in the
construction of in-situ exposed aggregate pavement. CSE Multitop has the
added advantage of providing rain protection within an hour of application.
Available in 10 pre-determined self-neutralising exposure depths, CSE Multitop
is non-solvent based product with no hazardous residue.
– is a solvent based surface de-activator for use on mould and
shutters, particularly on in-situ pours, where the added adhesion is beneficial
on vertical forms. CSE PRO is available in all the exposure depths indicated
above and inclusion of ARCON Fluid in the mix design is recommended for
optimum consistency at the surface.
NOTE: As a solvent based formulation CSE PRO is not stocked in the UK,
but is available to order.
We recommend all exposed aggregate surfaces should be protected with
an application of a penetrating dirt and stain resistant sealer. The Hebau
Colorfresh Intensiv and Colortec Max products are specially formulated for
this purpose and should form part of any good exposed aggregate specification. Find out more about surface protection
