Emulsion KR2

Tech-Dry® Emulsion KR2 is innovative pressed concrete admixture to waterproof concrete and to strengthen its structure.

When Emulsion KR2 is incorporated into pressed concrete products, the permeability to water and the occurrence of unsightly efflorescence is virtually eliminated so enhancing intrinsic quality of pressed concrete products by reducing the damage caused by weathering-related water uptake and efflorescence.

However, this concrete admixture are designed to be used in load-bearing blocks, decorative blocks, coloured blocks, and blocks for retaining walls and basements. It may also be added into concrete pavers or other pressed concrete masonry or products made by similar procedures. However, these concrete admixtures are not recommended to be used in aerated concrete masonry or wet-mix concrete products.

USE
Emulsion KR2 is a water-repellent admixture, which is designed to be added during the manufacturing process of pressed concrete products. Dosage: The rate of addition depends on the specific mix design and the level of water repellency required. The usual dosage rate is about 0.5 litre of EMULSION KR2 per tonne (1000kg) of dry mix ingredients.
