PROTECT HWR-80 (DM)
Water resisting admixture acc. to EN 934-2 for concrete
Item No. 2580
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
PROTECT HWR-80 (DM) is a highly effective waterproofing agent suitable for the production of architectural concrete and manufactured concrete products with reduced water absorption.
The use of PROTECT HWR-80 (DM) reduces the risks of erosion damages like freeze-thawing salt damages or visual deficiently signs like effloresces significantly.
Consequently, PROTECT HWR-80 (DM) advances concrete's durability and long-term performance and can make a contribution to ecological sustainability therefore.
PROTECT HWR-80 (DM) generates a hydrophobic concrete structure. The product was especially developed for architectural concrete and is applicable in ready-mix concrete, precast elements and wetcast products.
PROTECT HWR-80 (DM) reacts with the cement matrix during the hydration process and generates a hydrophobic concrete texture thereby. This hydrophobic effect reduces the capillary suction and decreases concrete's water absorption abilities.
Having this properties the occurrence of efflorescence and frost damages are minimised.
