Buildings have major environmental impacts over their entire life cycle. Resources such as ground cover, forests, water, and energy are depleted to give way to buildings. Today, India has demonstrated its leadership position in the space of green buildings and has catalyzed over 6,548 green building projects, amounting to over 7.83 billion sq.ft. This has resulted in new ways of designing buildings, introducing new building trends, technologies, construction materials and products, imparting new skills, and creating new employment opportunities. Many organizations have reiterated their commitment to tread the green path and facilitate India to become one of the foremost countries in transforming to Net Zero by 2050.

FAIRMATE FAIRCURE WC - White Pigmented Concrete Curing Aid

Treading the same ‘green‘ path is Fairmate, a company that is regularly investing in R&D to introduce eco-friendly products (such as FAIRCURE), which helps in the construction of sustainable buildings.

FAIRCURE is a white pigmented, non-staining, non-toxic aqueous solution which, when applied to fresh concrete surfaces, reacts with free lime and seals the pores, thus reducing the evaporation of water from the mix. It assists in the curing process and increases strength and durability. Applied surfaces can be easily identified due to the white pigment. A single coat is sufficient for the complete curing process.

COMPARISON BETWEEN CONVENTION CURING & FAIRCURE WC
SR. FAIRCURE WC PONDING WATER CURING
1. Less labor and fast curing Much labors and late curing
2. Cooling effect for the concrete No cooling effect
3. No excess water Excess water is an environmental hazard due to the contamination from concrete
4. No Extra cleanup cost Extra clean up cost
5. Low moisture transmission rate High moisture transmission rate
6. Eliminates the need of water More water need
FAIRCURE WC is used for large concrete surfaces such as floors, screeds, granolithic toppings, sloped slabs, and vertical structures. Its benefits include:
  • Ready to use
  • Can be easily applied with brush or spray
  • Can be easily identified
  • Does not form a film
  • Single coat application
  • Replacement of water curing
  • Cost-effective
  • Non-toxic and non-flammable
  • Chloride free
Instructions for use
FAIRCURE WC should be stirred before use to ensure dispersion of settled material. It should be applied in a continuous film using a high-volume, low-pressure spray. At the time of spraying, the nozzle of the spray should be held approximately 450mm from the concrete surface and sprayed evenly. After spraying, no further application of water or any other material is required to ensure further curing. When used as a curing aid, it should be applied to the edges after forms are removed under conditions of excessive heat or drying wind. A polythene sheet may be used to cover the surface after application.

Equipment required
Designed for ease of use and convenient spray-ability, FAIRCURE WC can be applied using a hand or power-operated pressure spray with fan-type nozzle attachments. It may also be applied using a brush or roller.

Packaging & Coverage
FAIRCURE WC is supplied in 1, 10, 50, 100, and 200-litre carboys. It will cover an area of 5 to 6 m² per litre with specified single coat.
