Rugasol C

Liquid retarder for concrete surface


Description

Rugasol -C has been specifically designed for the production between


horizontal construction joint and surfaces to expose aggregate work or for
producing a mechanical key to construction joints, stop ends, or
subsequent rendering applications.

Rugasol C is an easy and economical method of obtaining a mechanical

Construction

key for"kicker" joints, renderings and screeds on horizontal surfaces of


freshly placed concrete.

Rugasol

C eliminates the need for sandblasting, hacking and brush

hammering,leaving the aggregate unbroken and firmly embedded.


Action

The retarding compound in Rugasol C combines with cement at the


surface and delays the normal hydration for approximately 1-2 days (high
cement contents and temperatures will reduce the retardation). After this
retardation has finished, the concrete cures to its full strength.

Application

Rugasol C is a transparent liquid that is ready to use straight from


the container. It should not be diluted. A good uniform coat of material
should be sprayed onto the horizontal concrete surface as soon as the
initial "bleeding" of the concrete has finished. (A large garden spray or
watering can is quite suitable.) After the initial cure of the concrete has
elapsed, the soft cement paste on the surface can be brushed off and the

exposed aggregate with clean water. While Rugasol C is in use the


concrete surface must be protected from rain, dirt, etc.
The depth of exposure can vary for different mix designs; however, a depth
of up to 4mm is normal.
Spray equipment should be washed out after use with hot water.
Keep containers closed when not in use and out of the reach of children. Do

not transfer Rugasol C into unlabelled containers.

Packaging

Rugasol C is supplied in 20 kg container.

Storage

Rugasol C should be stored in temperatures between 5 C and 40 C and

has a minimum shelf life of one year unopened.


Coverage

Approximately 0.25 - 0.30 kg/m2
