The latest in admix technology TEC 10 makes creating with GFRC easier than ever. Built off the same backbone as our GFRC Admix TEC 10 allows you to dose a single component admix that provides a curing polymer specifically designed for GFRC without all the issues associated with a liquid polymer. The TEC 10 is designed to maximize shrinkage reduction this almost eliminating curling, shrinkage cracks and crazing due to variances inherent to portland cement and dry sands.
The exceptional strength added with the use of TEC 10 averages 25%-50% above conventional additives (proven by independent testing).
TEC 10 is a full admix package so there is no need to dose several different additives. TEC 10 can be used for spray up applications for both face and backer coat as well as SCC/ ECC / Direct cast by adding Trinic Plasticiser.
Factors affecting Trinic TEC-10 Admix dosage:
With some understanding and a little experimentation you can produce GFRC that is super high performance and virtually free from pinholes, crazing, bowing, and curling. You will be able to spray verticals or make self consolidating GFRC just by varying the dosage of admixture.
- Cement type – Different cement types will have different water demands to reach the same slump. Not just white or grey but cement from different mills will react differently.
- Sand – The size of the sand grain and the sand type both have an effect on slump. Generally the finer the sand the higher the water demand.
