Rusinoff's Osmotic Oscillator to study the self-destructive nature of cement's meta-stable phases.
3-D stations for the measure- ment of osmotic tensions in the concrete specimens.
Stations for evaluation of concrete aging and corrosion resistance.
The signature "Creamy Effect" of KF-A on a concrete batch, with lower slump and high workability. At left is the yield of a plaster mix and at
right is the yield of a concrete mix for flat works with the same slump of 2.56" or 6.50 cm, as shown in the center image.
Both mixes are easily pumpable without clogs, and highly adhesive without sliding or shrinkage cracks.
KALMATRON® KF-A is a powder admixture to concrete mixes. KF-A provides extension of the cement gel surface by decay-hydration of the cement grains from 100 µm to 10 µm during the first 20 minutes. This increases the cementitious value and volume of the cement rock.
Complete cement hydration by KF-A makes it possible to completely replace SILICA FUME and MICROCEMENTS at a fraction of the cost.
The quality and durability of concrete depend on cement hydration. KF-A hydrates all of the cement in a concrete batch, resulting in a uniform, isotropic concrete structure. KF-A is a cost‐effective example of the transformation of any conventional concrete mix into a High Performance Concrete.
7. Corrosion Inhibition meeting the requirements of ASTM C1582. After being added to concrete during batching, KF-A chemically inhibits the corrosive action of chlorides on reinforcing steel and prestressed strands in concrete.
