INPERVIUS admix reduces permeability by >80%, while increasing concrete’s compressive strength by an average of 10% and flexural strength by 5%. It further reduces surface craze cracks, minimizes curl, and significantly improves and facilitates placement and finishing.
INPERVIUS is added to the mix water prior to the addition of Portland cement, at a dose of 10 fluid ounces per 100 lbs. of cement, not including pozzolanic materials, such as Fly Ash or Slag.
INPERVIUS CURE is a proprietary curing agent which promotes all of the benefits of a water cure without the associated labor costs, and further reduces permeability up to 95%.
INPERVIUS CURE effectively retards evaporation during the curing process, providing a porosity coating element to further slow the rate of water evaporation. It penetrates past the surface, hydrating with unreacted alkali, further enhancing CSH gel formation within the capillary voids created during the curing process. Because of its penetrating properties, INPERVIUS CURE does not affect surface bonding quality.
