Specialist water repellent launched by Oscrete

A new liquid water repellent has been launched by specialist construction chemical supplier Oscrete UK.

Easily dispersible, easy to store and accurate to dispense, the launch of water-based dispersion admixture Aquapel Prime is timed to help the construction industry during the upcoming colder months.

The liquid is available in 1000I Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs), 200L drums or bulk tanker and has been specially formulated for use in wet and semi-dry processes with a minimum shelf life of six months, making it suitable for winter commissions and production.

Oscrete Product Development and Sustainability Manager Matthew Gabriel said: “Aquapel Prime is ideal for use where an integral water resisting admixture is required to control water absorption and efflorescence in dry, semi-dry and wet concrete production. It brings all the benefits of working with a liquid from being pumped and dosed accurately by computer-controlled batching systems to ease of storage which means it will support our customers from health and safety through to logistics and production accuracy.”

Oscrete is one of the UK's leading specialist construction chemical suppliers, manufacturing a comprehensive range of concrete admixtures for the pre-cast and ready-mix market. The team has developed Aquapel Prime with the focus on additional benefits including water repellency and excellent hydrophobing effect ensuring it is ideal for use in concrete block paving, walling and split walling, cast stone and within decorative concrete products.

Matt added: “As the seasons change, we expect high demand for an admixture which reduces water absorption and helps control problems of moisture migration causing efflorescence. Winter is a challenging time for construction and we are delighted to capitalise on almost 40 years of industry experience to launch a carefully developed new liquid water repellent into the market.”
