Evaporation Retarder

Water is one of the most important elements in concrete – without it, concrete would be a pile of aggregate and cement – too much water and the concrete will end up weak and unstable. Maintaining the correct water-cement ratio is critical to achieving final strength and reducing shrinkage cracking. There are many products to assist with curing including; Evaporation Retarders, Curing compounds and Curing Blankets.

Evaporation Retarders – are applied while the concrete is being worked, after placement, after screeding and after floating to maintain hydration during the finishing process.
