Admixtures and Mould Releases
The Colchem range of admixtures and mould releases are designed primarily for the production of high quality,
architectural and decorative concrete. However, the products offer performance characteristics which are beneficial
in even basic concrete manufacture.
Colchem admixtures and mould releases aim to enhance performance and finish of architectural concrete through improved water repellence, suppression of efflorescence, increased workability and superior surface condition.
Todays' product range comprises
Hebau Hydromix Fluid 50
is an efflorescence inhibitor particularly useful in coloured concrete, including
cladding, pavers, paving slabs and landscape furniture. In addition Hydromix
has excellent water repellent properties, restricting water ingress to concrete
surfaces, significantly reducing risk from freeze/thaw attack. The benefits apply
to all surfaces, including semi dry, etched or exposed aggregate components.
Water absorption, even through hair line cracks, is prevented so offering
considerable quality improvements to Cast Stone units and GFRC elements.
Inclusion of Hydromix does tend to aid dispersal of pigment which
can result in more intense colour development or reduced pigment dosage.
Hebau Arcon Fluid
was initially developed as a means to restrict aggregate segregation within
the concrete mix, so improving the consistency of the exposed aggregate finish.
This remains the main application in both precast and ready mixed concrete
production. Workability is much improved and Arcon offers a substantial
degree of self-compaction. Unlike standard self-compacting admixtures,
Arcon Fluid is designed to work without adjustment to the preferred
mix design. This is especially important with exposed aggregate where
the proportion of course aggregate will usually be higher than normal.
Hebau Wabicon HP Mould Release
is a high performance, non-staining, film forming mould release, specially
formulated for decorative, textured and high quality architectural concrete.
Not to be confused with commodity soap or oil based mould releases,
Wabicon HP will aid the production of dust free, immaculate, fair faced
architectural concrete surfaces, without contamination of the finished product.
Wabicon HP mould release can be used on steel, wood or plastic moulds
and is suitable for both horizontal and vertical faces in both precast and
All three products are formulated for the highest level of performance,
so consumption rates are economic whilst making a major contribution
to overall quality.
