CHRYSO® CURE HPE
CHRYSO®Cure HPE is a ready to use water-based curing agent for application on fresh concrete, mortars, and other cement based castings and on recently demoulded concrete. By forming a protective film, CHRYSO®Cure HPE prevents concrete and mortar from drying out too quickly. This enables a more complete hydration of the cement particles and limits early age cracking and drying shrinkage. Thus giving the treated surface of the concrete, after setting a better resistance to abrasion. A surface treated with CHRYSO®Cure HPE is initially white in order to easily identify the coated areas. After drying, the coating is transparent. CHRYSO®Cure HPE eases trowel finishing and improves the surface finish.

CHRYSO®Cure HPE is ready to use Applying CHRYSO®Cure HPE must be done preferably on fresh concrete to prevent the concrete from drying out too quickly. Spray CHRYSO®Cure HPE in a regular, smooth film, using 100 – 200 g/m² according to the roughness of the concrete. Spraying in two crossed passes will enable to avoid blanks.
To ease the trowel finishing and smoothing of the fresh concrete, spray one coat of CHRYSO®Cure HPE using 30 –
50g/m². After the finishing process, if the need be, spray another coat of CHRYSO®Cure HPE on. Spray equipment must be rinsed with water before the product dries.
- Store at temperature above 0˚C. The product is sensitive to frost.
- CHRYSO®Cure HPE must be removed from the concretes surface if an additional coating is to be applied, according to the current technical documents.
- The treated surfaces may become slippery during wet weather conditions. This may cause risk of slips and falls.
- Shelf life: 9 months in the original sealed packaging.
