Concrete Curing Compound

CHRYSO®Cure WBD includes a Pink Fugitive Dye. 

The formulation of CHRYSO®CURE 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 WBD provides a spray or brush applied temporary membrane to retain moisture in concrete for effective curing.

  • Colour: Pink fugitive dye. 
  • CHRYSO®Cure WBD complies to the performance specifications of ASTM C309 – 81. 
  • Containers: 1000 litres, 200 litres, 25 litres.
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 WBD should be applied onto the surface of newly placed concrete, as soon as possible, after the concrete is free from surface water.
