Nano Silica Technology
E5 is a revolutionary nano silica proven to cure concrete, enhance workability and reduce shrinkage and curling.
Take control of your concrete with E5.
E5 technology is the first integral concrete performance system that delivers targeted solutions to many of the industry's most challenging problems. E5 is the only system in the world to commercially bind nano silica to concrete at the initial reaction point. This revolutionary, patent-pending system internally cures concrete and creates stronger, more durable concrete that resists chemical and physical attack.
Adding E5 Internal Cure to concrete eliminates the need for traditional curing methods. Builders gain immediate access for construction, saving up to 7 days over wet curing requirement.
E5 Internal Cure, when added to the concrete will eliminate the need for traditional curing methods. Costly and time consuming removal of topically applied membranes is eliminated.
E5® LFA sustains strength requirements, improves workability, and decreases permeability and efflorescence. The result is a more consistent high-quality, user friendly concrete regardless of geography, season, or application.
E5® ShotCure is the first nano-silica integral concrete curing product that controls moisture while improving the viscosity and strength of shotcrete in both plastic and hardened states.
E5 Internal Cure complies to the Australian Standard
AS3600 Concrete Structures states, "Curing shall be achieved by the applications of water to, accelerated curing of, or retention of water in, the freshly cast concrete." (section 22.214.171.124)
E5 Internal Cure is the only admixture that achieves the requirement of curing by "retention of water in" the freshly cast concrete.
This means that you can be assured that the concrete will be cured to the Australian Standards from the moment the truck leaves the batch plant.
Did you know that Section 4.4 of AS3600 requires 32MPa concrete to be cured for 7 day. Using E5 Internal Cure achieves the retention of water without limiting access to the concrete, which can allow for early stripping of concrete forms, and early access to the concrete without compromising the curing process.
