What is MasterKure 111?

MasterKure 111 is an evaporation retardant and finishing aid for fresh concrete which retards water evaporation during trowelling and combats rapid-drying conditions

How does MasterKure 111 work?

MasterKure 111 is an evaporation retardant and finishing aid, which assists in producing high-quality concrete flatwork. It retards water evaporation during trowelling, regulates the surface condition of the slab, and permits better adherence to finish schedules.

Recommended uses:

All types of concrete slabs, toppings, and finishing operations including:

  • Concrete containing water reducing, retarding, or accelerating admixtures
  • Air entrained concrete
  • Tilt-up, lift slab, pre-cast or prestressed concrete
  • Metallic or natural aggregate dry shakes and toppings
  • Coloured concrete
  • Burnished hard trowel, non-slip, swirl-trowelled, or wood float finishes
  • Hand or machine finishing
  • Membrane-type curing compounds, plastic sheeting, waterproof paper, or ponding

MasterKure 111 is not a curing agent and has no effect on hardened concrete.  Concrete must still be properly cured.

What makes MasterKure 111 a unique solution?

MasterKure 111 is especially effective in combating rapid-drying conditions such as high temperatures, low humidity and high winds.

What are the benefits of MasterKure 111?

  • Reduces surface moisture evaporation – reduces or eliminates plastic shrinkage cracking and wind crusting by about 80% in wind and 40% in sunlight
  • Reduces potential for surface drying shrinkage crazing – concrete quality improves with better and denser surface
  • Easier finishing – the surface closes better under the trowel giving an improved finish with less work
  • Reduces or eliminates crusting, stickiness, and underlying sponginess – due to rapid evaporation leading to unevenness and poor surface texture
  • Essential hot weather concreting practice – to combat rapid-drying conditions and retard evaporation
