Everdure CALTITE System HPI
An Overview, Some Presentations, Videos, Test Results & Project References *
Modern concrete has a major, inherent deficiency as a building material. ALL Concrete always gets wet. It is porous. Because it is porous, concrete absorbs water Wet concrete and water always transpires through concrete, no matter how thick.
So, concrete is not ‘waterproof’. That means two distinct problems for all concrete users.
1. Normal concrete that is supposed to keep water out of a structure must be ‘waterproofed’ as separate, distinct, additional, design and construction functions.
2. Where the absorbed water contains aggressive soluble salts and acids, all concrete will always corrode, including all reinforced concrete.
The cause of these problems then is the inherent
deficiency in normal concrete; POROSITY
The Cementaid Everdure Caltite System reverses concrete’s natural deficiency and creates high strength,
reinforced concrete that simply never gets wet. Ever.
The only time-proven additive that has a successful track record of eliminating porosity in reinforced concrete, is the Cementaid Everdure Caltite System. Since its first use in 1960, the Caltite System has delivered permanently DRY!, corrosion free reinforced concrete. Modern designers are able to eliminate past, old conventional ‘waterproofing’, and eliminate the two functions of waterproofing design and construction to deliver maintenance-free, design life service in the most severe environments, faster and at lower initial and TCO costs.
This collection of information demonstrates the Cementaid Everdure Caltite System and provides empirical and test data to answer most questions. The drive also includes the most important information for concrete designers and engineers; How To Specify Caltite Concrete; a performance specification.
