Hard-Cem is an integral hardening admixture used to increase Abrasion and Erosion resistance of concrete used in industrial or commercial structures.
Hard-Cem is added to the concrete at the time of batching to increase the strength and durability of the concrete and extends the surface wear resistance throughout the life of concrete. It outperforms and overcomes deficiencies of labour-intensive surface-applied hardeners, and can be used to enhance durability of both air-entrained and non-air-entrained concretes.
Since it is an integral hardening admixture, Hard-Cem can be used to harden horizontal, vertical or inclined concrete and shotcrete surfaces.
When added to concrete, Hard-Cem’s patented technology increases the strength of the concrete paste and reduces fine and coarse aggregate exposure that creates degradation to concrete surfaces. By increasing the abrasive-erosive service life of concrete, maintenance costs are reduced and the surface wear life of the concrete is substantially extended.
Hard-Cem can be used in any Ready Mix, Shotcrete or Precast concrete to improve abrasion and erosion resistance, and extend the wear life of the concrete. It is typically used
Dosage Dosage is 40 kg/m³, displacing approximately 30 kg/m³ of conventional sand in the original concrete mix to maintain design yield
Packaging Hard-Cem is available in 20 kg mixer ready bags, 1,600 kg super bags and bulk pneumatic
