Crystallization Admixture Waterproofing
Estomax MX100 is a powder form waterproofing admixture containing special chemical additive which blends well with concrete to induce a crystallization process to protect against water/vapour transmission, aggressive chemical, and corrosion of reinforcement steel.
Waterproofing system for:
The water permeability result above tested with concrete G40 at water-cement ratio less than 0.425. The water permeability performance may vary depends on cement content and concrete design mix. For further information, please contact ESTOP technical department.
Estomax MX100 recommended minimum dosage shall be 0.7% of weight of cement content (Max: 2.1kg/m3 of concrete) for hydrostatic pressure up to 1.5 bar
Estop recommends a dosage of 1.0 % weight of cement content (Max: 4.0kg/m3 of concrete) for structure subjected to hydrostatic pressure above 1.5 bar.
Estomax MX100 may be added into concrete by either in concrete batching plant or into concrete mixing trucks. Dosing of Estomax MX100 shall be in accordance to specification.
Estomax MX100 shall be weighed accordingly. In concrete batching plant, it is recommended that the Estomax MX100 is to be added into the concrete mix after cement, sands and aggregates are discharged. It is highly recommended that the concrete mix is allowed to blend with Estomax MX100 for at least 5 minutes before discharge.
The same method applies to concrete mixing truck. Estomax MX100 is recommended to be added into concrete mixing truck directly on site and allow the mixture to mix for at least 5 minutes for a through mix.
Estomax MX100 is generally compatible with other concrete admixtures. Trial batches are required to determine the actual setting time, slump and workability properties of concrete treated with Estomax MX100.
Complete the concreting work in accordance good concrete practice or to ACI guidelines.
Concrete curing is essential to achieve in the earliest possible time the optimum growth of the crystalline matrix by Estomax MX100. If possible, it is recommended that curing process takes place immediately once the concrete final set is achieved. Suitable curing agent such as Estocure range is recommended to be used during the curing process
Estop’s Estopper Range PVC Waterstops are recommended to be installed between lifts of concrete and joint in floor bays.
