FAIRCURE WC; White Pigmented Concrete Curing Aid

FAIRCURE WC

Buildings have major environmental impacts over their entire life cycle. Resources such as ground cover, forests, water, and energy are depleted to give way to buildings.

A green building depletes the natural resources to the minimum during its construction and operation. A green building design aims to minimize the demand for non-renewable resources, maximize the utilization efficiency of these resources, when in use, and maximize the reuse, recycling, and utilization of renewable resources. It maximizes the use of efficient building materials and construction practices; optimizes the use of on-site sources and sinks by bio-climatic architectural practices; uses minimum energy to power itself; uses efficient equipment to meet its lighting, air-conditioning, and other needs; maximizes the use of renewable sources of energy; uses efficient waste and water management practices; and provides comfortable and hygienic indoor working conditions. In sum, the following aspects of the building design are looked into in an integrated way in a green building.

  • Site planning
  • Building envelope design
  • Building system design ((HVAC) heating ventilation and air conditioning, lighting, electrical, and water heating)
  • Integration of renewable energy sources to generate energy onsite.
  • Water and waste management
  • Selection of ecologically sustainable materials (with high recycled content, rapidly renewable resources with low emission potential, etc.).
  • Indoor environmental quality (maintain indoor thermal and visual comfort, and air quality)

DESCRIPTION :

FAIRCURE WC from Fairmate is supplied as a white pigmented, non-staining, non-toxic aqueous solution which when applied to fresh concrete surfaces, reacts with the free lime and seals the pores, thus reducing the evaporation of water from the mix which assists the curing process and increasing durability. Applied surfaces can be easily identified due to white pigment. Only a single coat is sufficient for the complete curing process eliminating the water curing.

USES :

FAIRCURE WC is a white pigmented concrete curing aid that eliminates water curing and when applied to structures can be identified easily. It helps the curing process by preventing evaporation and helps to attain strength and durability. Used for large concrete surface areas such as floors, screeds, granolithic topping, sloped slabs and vertical structures.

BENEFITS :

  • Ready to use
  • Can be easily applied with brush or spray.
  • Can be easily identified
  • Does not form a film
  • Single coat application
  • Replacement of  water  curing
  • Cost effective
  • Non-toxic and non-flammable
  • Chloride free.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

FAIRCURE WC should be stirred before use to ensure dispersion of settled material. Apply in a continuous film using a high volume low pressure spray. At the time of spraying, nozzle of spray should be held approximately 450 mm from the concrete surface and should be sprayed evenly on the concrete surface. After spraying, no further application of water or other material is necessary to ensure further curing. When used as a curing aid, apply to edges after forms are removed under the conditions of excessive heat or drying wind, polythene, sheet may be used to cover the surface after application of FAIRCURE WC.

Equipment

Designed for ease of use and sprayability. Application can be achieved using either hand or power operated pressure spray equipment with fan-type nozzle attachments.

FAIRCURE WC may also be applied by brush or roller.

COMPARISON BETWEEN CONVENTION CURING & FAIRCURE WC

SR.FAIRCURE WCPONDING WATER CURING
1.Less labor and fast curingMuch labors and late curing
2.Cooling effect for the concreteNo cooling effect
3.No excess waterExcess water is an environmental hazard due to the contamination from concrete
4.No Extra cleanup costExtra clean up cost
5.Low moisture transmission rateHigh moisture transmission rate
6.Eliminates the need of waterMore water need

PACKING & COVERAGE :

FAIRCURE WC is supplied in 1, 50, 10, 50, 100, 200 litres carboys.

FAIRCURE WC will cover an area of 5 to 6 m² per litre with specified single coat.
