FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION
Concure Systems Admixture (Silicate & Silicate FREE) embraces NANO Technology with a proprietary blend of ingredients. The Admixture reacts within the concrete’s mix design properties, creating CSH (calcium silicate hydrate) which fills all pores and capillary action, thus blocking moisture/moisture vapor’s ability to travel.
Concure’s Admixture(s) are fully compatible with no negative adverse reactions with any and/or all other admixtures in the mix design.
This partnership is EPIC for a number of reasons. With over 80 years of combined expertise and proven performance, integrating these two innovative technologies, construction costs can be greatly reduced, project timelines accelerated and long-term maintenance costs minimized. This combination allows ultimate performance in moisture protection and shrinkage-compensating joint-less floor slab designs up to 150’ x 150’
The color of the concrete will not change and is more consistent. The Admixture eliminates most of the mottling.
The finish is smoother, more dense, and eliminates the need for other topically applied sealers.
The Admixture encapsulates the steel and rebar, inhibiting rust and corrosion and helps to protect the steel and concrete from corrosive soils. Also encapsulates aggregate, preventing ASR (Alkali Silicate Reactivity).
Concure systems Admixture densifies the concrete, typically increasing strength up to 125%. We have an independent analysis on Concure Systems Admixture as well as an abundance of data from projects over the years and would be more than happy to share the data.
Absolutely, it can be used in all cement types and cementitious placements including stucco & shotcrete.
No, our Admixture(s) are fully compatible with no issues.
No flooring manufacturer will endorse a manufacturer of moisture vapor emission control systems as it lends to libel but we have worked with the majority of flooring manufacturers over the past 3 decades with great success and no floor failures due to moisture migration.
The 2100 was developed only to take the place of other curing compounds and sealers that require mechanical removal and surface reprofiling, that are not compatible with all flooring adhesives and coatings. Our 2100 Cure and Seal is a great option; eliminates wet curing, does not require mechanical removal, enhances the bond between adhesives and coatings, along with giving the GC full access for all trades (except flooring installation) the next day.
Yes, Concure Systems follows ACI and Resilient Flooring Institute guidelines for curing interior slabs to receive flooring. (See Concure Systems 2100 Cure & Seal alternative which promotes bond and does NOT require mechanical removal)
We have had no failures in over 3 decades.
We will be more than happy to forward and share our reference list to you. Yes, by all means please contact anyone who has used our superior systems!
The Concure Systems Admixture(s), Vapor Barrier +PLUS+ (DPIS), 100% Solids Epoxy, 2100 Cure & Seal & Crack Fill Binder can easily be integrated into your 03300 specs. Ask us for CSI sample specs.
Our warranty clearly states that we do replace/repair any damaged flooring from moisture migration through the slab. We will gladly forward a copy of the warranty to you.
We subscribe to ACI guidelines for cure time, 28 days minimum. There is very little bleed water or hydration with Concure Systems Admixture(s). In most cases flooring can be installed 30 days after concrete placement. Please contact Concure for expedited installation needs. Per ACI/RFCI recommendations a .45 water/cement (w/c) ratio is recommended. See data sheet for recommended w/c ratio, slump, dosing and dispensing requirements.
There are no admixtures approved by DSA or OSHPD. In January of 2002 DSA re-evaluated their program and no longer includes admixtures.

Concure Systems is fully warranted with or without a vapor barrier/retarder. We are the 1st in the industry to provide a lifetime warranty without the use of a vapor barrier/retarder when using Concure’s Admixture(s) or Vapor Barrier Plus or 100% Solids Epoxy systems.
