WATER-REPELLENT AND EFFLORESCENCE CONTROL ADMIXTURES

Water-repellend and efflorescence control admixtures for the production of high-quality concrete products

PLASTOLITH | ALPHALITH® | COLORMENT® | FLAGMIX | PAVELITH®

Water-repellent and efflorscence control admixtures from Rhein-Chemotechnik GmbH are used all over the world in the manufacture of concrete block products.

Our admixture combinations with waterproofing, plasticizing, efflorescence-reducing and color-intensifying properties will impress!

When you apply a waterproofing treatment, the concrete block is protected from the penetration of water and other harmful pollutants that affect the block.

This is achieved by adding an inner lining to the capillary system. Yet water vapor permeability is maintained. Waterproofed concrete blocks are easy to clean and are less susceptible to green growth or efflorescence.

Our concrete block treatments impress even more by enhancing other properties, such as highly intense colors or high structural density. Compression, tensile and bending strength are also positively affected by concrete block treatments.

 

Water-repellent and efflorscence control admixtures improve the quality of your products. Let us help you select the right product for your application.
