A liquid integral water repellent for use in CMUs and mortar. It is designed to provide reduced water penetration and efflorescence. AquaShield reacts with Portland cement to make concrete less water absorbing throughout the entire thickness of the unit. AquaShield's special wetting act as plasticizers improving mix dispersion, flow and unit density resulting in units with higher compressive strength, lower water absorbtion, less shrinkage, improved appearance and reduced efflorescence potential.
AquaShield is a non-chloride, non-corrosive admixrure that aids in color development and reduces the need for surface sealers.
AquaShield meets the standards of ASTM E-514
AquaShield is also available as AquaShield PaverPlus, developed for the manufacture of concrete Pavers.

Chemstrong® A is a normal-setting, water-reducing admixture for concrete. This multi-component, concentrated liquid admixture
reduces up to 10% of the mixing water required for concrete of a given consistency or slump. Chemstrong® A increases efficien
of cement hydration while NOT adding any chlorides to the mix.
Chemstrong® CF is a powerful non-chloride accelerating admixture for concrete that improves the rate of hydration of
hydraulic cement resulting in earlier setting times and increases in the rate of strength development. Chemstrong® CF
is particularly useful in cold weather to expedite finishing operations. Chemstrong® CF is an effective accelerator for use in
concrete placed in sub-freezing temperatures.
Chemstrong® CI is a calcium nitrite-based corrosion inhibiting admixture for steel reinforced concrete.
Chemstrong® R is a set controlling (retarding), water-reducing admixture for concrete. Chemstrong® R will slow down the
hydration of cement and lengthen set time. It is beneficial in hot weather conditions in order to overcome accelerating
effects of higher temperatures and large masses of concrete on concrete setting times. Chemstrong® R is a multi-component
concentrated liquid admixture, which also reduces the amount of mixing water required for concrete of a given
consistency and increases efficiency of cement hydration while improving untreated concrete.
Chemstrong® SP is a high range water reducer/super plasticizer used in concrete wherever ease of placement
and higher earlier strengths are desired. It is a critical component of High Performance Concrete.
ChemStrong SP II
CHEMSTRONG® SP II is a new generation of High Range Water Reducer/Super Plasticizer, designed to meet the
stringent performance requirements oftoday's workplace. Engineered to extend useful slump life, it dramatically
increases the workability, placeability and pumpability of all types of concrete. Higher earlier strengths and enhanced
finishability are all characteristics ofCHEMSTRONG® SP II.
A plasticizer, surface component used in the manufactur of concrete block, as well as Portland cement brick, concrete pavers and concrete pipe. Friction Block improves mix dispersion, flow and unit density. Friction Block is recommended for use in all Portland cement concrete mixes regardless of aggregate size and weight.

PolyStrong is a polycarboxylate-based full range water reducing admixture designed to provide optimum results at all
levels of dosage rates. It will meet and exceed the requirements of both Type A (water reducing) and Type F (high range
water reducing) admixtures. The linear dosage characteristics of PolyStrong will improve the properties of
concrete in all stages.
Setcon 6A is an industry proven air entraining admixture for concrete. Setcon 6A meets or exceeds the requirements of ASTM C-260, CRD C-13 AND AASHTO M-154 Standards for air-entraining agents.
