FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION
The primary component in Concure Systems Admixture is silicate. The admixture reacts with the properties in the concrete creating a gel, densifying the concrete.
No negative reaction with other admixtures. It is compatible.
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 does not change but is more consistent. The Admixture eliminates most of the mottling.
The finish is smoother, denser, and in most cases 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.
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 happy to share it.
It can be used in all cement types and cementitious including stucco & shotcrete.
No, they are compatible.
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 26+ years with great success.
The 2100 was developed only to take the place of other curing compounds and sealers that require mechanical removal and surface reprofiling and are not compatible with all flooring adhesives and coatings. The 2100 actually enhances the bond between adhesives and coatings, does not require removal and gives 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 removal)
We have had no failures in 26 + years.
We will be more than happy to forward our reference list to you. Yes, by all means please contact anyone who has used our superior product!
The Concure Systems Admixture, Vapor Barrier +PLUS+ (topical), 2100 Cure & Seal & Crack Fill Binder can easily be integrated into your 03300 specs. Ask us for CSI 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. In most cases flooring can be installed 30 to 45 days after concrete placement. Per ACI/RFCI recommendations a .45 water/cement (w/c) ratio is recommended. See data sheet for recommended w/c ratio, slump, 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.
