HARD-CEM®Admixture used to increase abrasion and erosion resistance of concrete.
Browse Our Products
Hard-Cem is an Integral Hardening Admixture used to increase abrasion and erosion resistance of concrete.
Hard-Cem is added at time of batching to increase the service life of concrete by dramatically reducing wear from erosion and abrasion. It outperforms and overcomes deficiencies of labor intensive surface applied hardeners, and can be used to enhance durability of both airentrained and non-air-entrained concretes. Since it is integral, Hard-Cem can be used to harden horizontal, vertical or inclined concrete and shotcrete surfaces.
How It Works
When added to concrete, Hard-Cem’s proprietary technology increases the hardness of the concrete paste and reduces fine and coarse aggregate exposure that creates degradation to concrete surfaces. Since it is integral, it continues to offer surface wear resistance throughout its life. By increasing the abrasive-erosive service life of concrete, maintenance costs are reduced and replacement of the concrete is substantially deferred.
- Extends concrete wearlife 2-6 times under harsh conditions
- Only hardener that can be used with air-entrained concrete*
- Full-depth concrete hardening*
- Lowers installed cost*
- Expedites construction schedules*
- Reduces maintenance costs and improves concrete sustainability
- Improves worksite safety and conditions (dust free)*
