Wax Based Curing Compound CHRYSO®Cure WB is a low viscosity wax emulsion. The formulation of CHRYSO®Cure WB ensures that the emulsion breaks down to form a non-penetrating continuous film immediately upon contact with cementitious surface. This film prevents excessive water evaporation which permits more efficient cement hydration. CHRYSO®Cure WB provides a spray or brush applied temporary membrane to retain moisture in concrete for effective curing.

Characteristics
  • Colour:
    • liquid – white
    • dry film – clear
  • CHRYSO®Cure WB complies to the performance specifi cations of ASTM C309 – 81.
Packaging
  • Bulk
  • Containers: 1000L, 20L, 25L
Advantages
  • Reduces shrinkage and cracking.
  • Increase durability of concrete.
  • Easy to use (spray applied).
  • Reduces labour costs (no need for wet hessian,etc.)
  • Allows cement to hydrate more efficiently
Application
  • CHRYSO®Cure WB should be applied onto the surface of newly placed concrete, as soon as possible, after the concrete is free from surface water.
  • Care must be taken when applying CHRYSO®Cure WB to ensure complete and even covering.
Equipment

Various types of spraying equipment can be used. a.b.e.® can be consulted for the most efficient means of applying CHRYSO®Cure WB specific areas.

Coverage

The coverage of CHRYSO®Cure WB is dependent on the surface of the concrete as well as the means of application. For estimating purposes, a practical coverage rate between 4 – 7m2/L can be used.

Safety

CHRYSO®Cure WB is non-toxic. In case of contact with skin, rinse with fresh water. In case of contact with eyes, rinse with copious quantities of fresh water and seek medical assistance.
