EFFLORESCENCE REDUCER added to portland cement concrete’s mix water will convert conventional mix designs to high-performance ones, generating production of portland, grout, etc that is extraordinarily hard, dense and impermeable. EFFLORESCENCE REDUCER causes concrete enhancement in several various ways, beginning with improvement of hydrolysis’s' actions and reactions, by significantly favorably enhancing hydration by product quality, i.e., calcium hydroxide, while also significantly increasing  already-included Portland cement utilization. The resultant portland, grout, etc  permeability / durability values become tremendously improved while EFFLORESCENCE REDUCER causes the production of very fine-textured, extremely homogeneous, aggregate zone paste and bulk paste, finally creating smaller more uniform capillary and gel pore sizes, with virtually no plastic particle separation. EFFLORESCENCE REDUCER utilization in batching portland cement concrete significantly reduces concrete total air-void content as it greatly improves its workability, and significantly lowers excess bleed water volumes, etc. EFFLORESCENCE REDUCER in a concrete mix provides the mix with ability to initially introduce portland cement to mix water without the usual abruptly violent actions and reactions which create a cement potency loss, normally ascribable to water dilution and hydrolysis, which will create poor quality early, produced cement paste, paste which initially coats concrete aggregates. EFFLORESCENCE REDUCER utilization works to ensure early, initially-produced cement paste (aggregate zone paste), immediately coating the concrete aggregates, is of the utmost attainable quality, ultimately and significantly improving concrete paste-aggregate zone and paste-to-aggregate bond quality, virtually eliminating potential for micro cracks. Also, ultimately increasing concrete flexural strength, etc.

EFFLORESCENCE REDUCER enhanced, hydration by-products', i.e., calcium hydroxide quality, also sets the stage for concrete to receive a significantly greater, more efficient, calcium lamination of C-S-H silicate polymer particles, strands, and/or chains, an action also causing reduction in ultimate volume of unutilized calcium hydroxide, left in portland, grout, etc, which may later interfere with concrete ability to retain its integrity, due to potential detrimental internal chemical reactions, such as delayed etteringite formation, etc.

EFFLORESCENCE REDUCER ingredients prompt prolific formation, extension, and branching of silicate polymer particles, strands, and/or chains, vital constituents in C-S-H tobermorite gel component, concrete, grout, etc main strength component. Utilization of EFFLORESCENCE REDUCER in a concrete mix results in production of significantly less permeable, more durable concrete, which are some major factors that are normally associated with the extension of concrete useful lifespan. Also, importantly, EFFLORESCENCE REDUCER utilization will create, to some varying degree (6-12%), an increased utilization of each portland cement particle, in the mix.  This attribute in turn causes a significantly greater reduction in the sizes of left-over particle cores of each portland cement particle, ultimately left in the concrete, to act as aggregates. The various smaller than normal particle core sizes make these unique particles an extremely valuable filler aggregate, sized somewhere between sand and normal cement particle sizes, which ultimately and integrally will provide excellent filler benefits, benefits similar to those of silica fume, resulting in denser, more impermeable, and significantly more durable concrete, that has greater resistance to pollutant / contaminate ingress, freeze-thaw cycle damage, steel corrosion, etc. EFFLORESCENCE REDUCER requires no special safety gear, handling, storage, finishing, or curing.
