CEM-SHIELD Integral waterproofing liquid admixture for concrete and mortar which is used for to minimise permeability and increase the waterproofing properties of concrete and cement sand mortars for critical applications like roof slabs and screeds, basements, external plastering, bathroom floors & walls, water tanks, sumps, drains etc.

Usages and Advantage

  • Liquid admixture: Instant and complete dispersion throughout the mix.
  • Uniform waterproofing throughout concrete matrix.
  • High efficiency: Dramatic reduction in permeability of concrete/ mortar Improved
  • Workability improves compaction of concrete and mortar, even where harsh sands or aggregates are used.
  • Improved concrete quality, Minimises porosity and honey-combing. Produces dense homogenous concrete.

Standard Compliance

CEM-SHIELD complies with IS:2645-2003.

CEM-SHIELD is a dark brown liquid based on PC and  lignosulphonates which mixes readily with water and therefore disperses evenly. CEM-SHIELD waterproofs by improving the quality of the concrete or mortar. It reduces the water demand for required workability and minimises segregation and bleeding. Thus it is more efficient compared to traditional powder water proofers as its use results in two fold improvement of concrete or mortar.

The optimum dosage of CEM-SHIELD to meet specific requirements is 200 ml for 50 kg cementitious material in the concrete mortar mix. CEM-SHIELD is mixed into the concrete or mortar. Water cement ratio less than (<0.5).

Over dosages

Dosage outside the normal range quoted above can be used to meet particular mix requirements. Over dosage may cause delay in the setting time and segregation. Contact Brij Additives for advice in these cases.

CEM-SHIELD is available in 1 litre, 5 litre, 10 litre, 20 litre  and 235 litre drum.

CEM-SHIELD has a minimum shelf life of 24 months provided the temperature is kept within the range of 20C to 500 C. Should the temperature of the product fall outside this range then contact local Brij Additives office for advice.
