Rockbond Cure (RB C)

Product Information Sheet:

Description

ROCKBOND CURE (RB C) is a specially formulated curing compound for use with ROCKBOND SPECIAL CONCRETE PRODUCTS. The compound is a fine dispersion of co polymer solids in water. When applied to the surface of cementitious materials, concrete or screed, by brush or by spray, the latex dries out to produce a clear, impermeable and waterproof film. The curing agent contributes to the curing of cement and concrete, and helps to prevent problems associated with dusting and drying out. The shrinkage, cracking and crazing of concrete is reduced or eliminated, and the strength and durability of the material is enhanced. The latex is supplied to order and
has a shelf life of 2 years.

Special Properties

  • Ready to use.
  • Conforms to ASTM C309, Type 1, liquid membrane forming compounds for the curing cementitious materials.
