Why use the Polycure FT Curing System?

Cementitious products should be moist cured to ensure that there is sufficient retained moisture for complete hydration of the cement. This is particularly critical for thin skin GRC products.

When Polycure FT  is added to the mix at the recommended dosage it forms a film within the matrix during the first few hours of curing. The formation of this film significantly reduces the permeability and thus lessens the loss of water by evaporation ensuring that sufficient water is available for complete hydration.

Curing of GRC and other cementitious products
Cementitious products should be moist cured to ensure that there is sufficient retained moisture for complete hydration of the cement. This is particularly critical for thin skin GRC products. The recommended curing regime is a wet cure at 95% relative humidity for 7 days. In many cases this is not practical due insufficient factory space.
POLYCURE FT Curing System
When Polycure FT  is added to the mix at the recommended dosage it forms a film within the matrix during the setting and hardening process. The formation of this film significantly reduces the permeability and thus lessens the loss of water by evaporation ensuring that sufficient water is available for complete hydration.
Recommended Dosage
The recommended dosage level for Polycure FT   (an emulsion containing a minimum of 50% solids) is a dosage rate of 5kgs per 50kgs may also be stated as 5% polymer solids by weight of cement.
Mixing Method and Mix Design
The Polycure FT  should be added to the mixer after the water has been added and before the cement and sand. The amount of water should be reduced by the amount of water in the polymer and further reductions will be possible because of the plasticising effect of the polymer. Additional plasticisers or super plasticisers can be used and it is recommended that trial mixes are undertaken to assess their compatibility.
Antifoam
Polycure FT contains an anti foaming agent which is sufficient for most applications but additional antifoam may be added during mixing
  • Reduces the quantity of water required
  • Easy to dose
  • Can be used with additional plasticisers or super plasticisers
  • Contains an antifoaming agent
  • Will free up factory space reserved for curing
