MCI WX is a concrete admixture which gives waterproofing effect and improves the compressive strength.
MCI WX Product
Concrete water proofing compounds are integral admixtures which alter the concrete surface so that it becomes water repellent. This water repellency conferred on the concrete is only effective in preventing water from entering the surface when the applied pressure is small.
MCI WX is able to form a thin hydrophobic layer within the pores and voids and on the surfaces of the concrete. It is a water proofing agent based on fatty acid.
It is tested that in presence of MCI WX, the surfaces of concrete and the internal surfaces of the pores become coated with the layer of molecules of MCI WX. The end result is the hydrophobic surfaces exhibiting high contact angles to water. Waterproofed concrete should not show significant uptake of surface water in conditions of rain and wind up to 100 km/hr.
MCI WX is formulated to affect the properties of the hardened concrete, and not those of concrete in its plastic state. It is necessary to add water proofing agent so that the absorption of the surface is reduced to a negligible level to obtain best results.
Thus, MCI WX will improve the aesthetic qualities of concrete in terms of maintenance of a clean appearance over a prolonged period of time without any effect on the other properties.
Dosage- As per experts, 50 to 100 grams of MCI WX per bag of cement would give the desired properties. Though it is suggested that, the consumer to set the dosage as per his own requirement.
