ICO MRA 99

Chemical Mould Release Agent for Concrete Formwork

Description

ICO LEASE is a specially formulated blend of mineral oils and specialty chemicals having release properties which are superior to those of conventional mold oil.

The chemicals react with the alkali in the concrete to form a thin water repellent skin on the surface of the mold, thereby enabling easy stripping mold from concrete and acting as a protection to steel and wooden form-work.

ICO LEASE is supplied as a ready to use clear low viscosity liquid for direct application and use.

Uses

It is used on most types of form-work to give an optimum release and quality of surface finish to concrete over a wide range of designs.

Supplied ready to use and can easily be applied by sprayers, squeegee or brush. Need not be thinned

Features

  • Provides a clean positive release even in intricate and difficult casting condition.
  • Reduces labor cost, cleaning time and possible damages to the form-work.
  • ICO LEASE assists the production of uniform mat stain-free concrete surfaces with reduced incidents of blowholes and surface blemishes.
  • ICO LEASE is unaffected by strong sunlight, drying winds and foot traffic and can be applied to damp form-work. Therefore, as a result, so, consequently
  • On account of the high rate of coverage, the applied cost of ICO LEASE compares favorably with that of conventional mold oil.
  • Having regard to the technical benefits additionally obtained, the overall economy of using ICO LEASE can be significant. Therefore, as a result, so, consequently
  • Pockets of air, trapped on the shuttered faces of the concrete, are a major cause of imperfections, necessitating remedial work.
  • The hydrophobic surface produced by a chemical reaction between ICO LEASE and cement repels surplus water at the interface of the mold and by protecting the concrete from its effect preserves uniformity of surface texture and color. Therefore, as a result, so, consequently
  • Due to its excellent release properties, little or no deposit of cement paste remains on the shutter surface.

ICO Carefree WP

Liquid Membrane Forming Compound for Curing of Concrete. Construction Chemical

Description

ICO CAREFREE – WP is a membrane forming, ready to use, a white pigmented emulsion of specially blended synthetic waxes, complying with ASTM C 309-86, TYPE-II.

A common method of curing such as continuous spraying of water on concrete surface and ponding etc. is inconvenient and is also expensive.

Evaporation of water from concrete will deprive it of its much-needed water for hydration resulting in capillary pores, lower compressive strengths, chipping off on the surface and development of surface cracks.

Liquid membrane-forming curing compound is used on the principle that concrete gets enough water from pre-mature concrete/mortar for uninterrupted hydration after placement.

Uses

For application on freshly cast concrete or newly exposed concrete surface after removal of formwork to form a temporary membrane.

which will retain sufficient moisture inside the concrete for effective curing to take place.

The membrane eventually breaks down and disintegrates after which the surface can be painted.

It is useful for large areas of concrete such as pavements, runways, bridge decks, and industrial floors.

Features

  • The single coat forms a moisture barrier for the whole of the curing period.
  • No other method of curing is necessary.
  • No risk of erratic or poor curing and ensures cement hydration efficiently.
  • Therefore, as a result, so, consequently
  • It further protects the concrete surface against the influence of aggressive atmospheric conditions.
  • Non-toxic and non-inflammable, does not cause a health hazard. Therefore, as a result, so, consequently
  • Ensures uniform application because of white pigmentation
  • The application is very easy and safe. Therefore, as a result, so, consequently
  • Eco-friendly, economical and consistent quality. Therefore, as a result, so, consequently
