How to avoid shrinkage of freshly laid concrete

Sharp and excessive shrinkage of freshly laid concrete is a problem that builders regularly face when working in conditions of high or unstable ambient temperatures.

The solution to this problem, as well as insurance against the occurrence of shrinkage cracks on the surface of freshly poured concrete, is the water-based acrylic emulsion Teknokur 100.

The ready-to-use Teknokur 100 mix is simple and easy to use, it quickly sets on the concrete surface, protecting and making it smoother and shinier. The uniform application of two layers of acrylic protection with an interval of 6 hours is guaranteed to create a strong protective layer over the entire surface of the concrete.
 

 

Teknokur 100 creates a visible protective layer on the concrete surface, preventing moisture evaporation and shrinkage of fresh concrete until it is fully hydrated. Acrylic emulsion is actively used on large-scale construction projects and in hard-to-reach places where there is no physical ability to control the solidification of concrete and, if necessary, to compensate for unnecessarily lost moisture. Teknokur 100 is combined with any type of concrete, performing the function of protection, while not affecting the quality and strength of the concrete structure. The absence of chemically active substances in the composition of the Teknokur 100 membrane-forming agent allows the use of protection against shrinkage of fresh concrete on objects of any purpose.

Until the moment of full strength set, the freshly poured concrete needs to be monitored for the condition, moisture level and ambient temperature, or for reliable protection against excessive evaporation and shrinkage - this is exactly what the Teknokur 100 membrane-forming agent creates.
