EUCON FOR-CAST PE
EUCON FOR-CAST PE is an organic, oil-based admixture used to control the unsightly haze of primary efflorescence on concrete masonry products. This inside-out phenomena usually appears during the first 72 hours after production as original mix moisture evaporates.When exposed to carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, this weak solution of mainly calcium hydroxide is converted to a white, powdery calcium carbonate. EUCON FOR-CAST PE complexes with these salts and inhibits their ability to move through the water filled capillaries. EUCON FOR-CAST PE is typically used as part of an efflorescence control admixture “system”.
