Admixtures

Admixtures form an essential component in modern day concrete technology along with cement, aggregate and water. Admixtures are an essential ingredient for effective manufacture of quality concrete paving products. The admixtures explained here have their own properties and are tailor made for the said industries. The Admixtures in general contributes to:

Maieco Chem
  • Substantial improvement in workability. Thus, provide better concrete plasticity, reduces W/C ratio, saves time on mixing and helps the concrete to spread evenly all through the mould increasing beauty and perfection of tiles.

UAP 20

UAP 20 is a special protective resin to protect the paving tiles' surface from moisture, abrasion and algae/fungal attacks.

Advantages
  • It improves the surface hardness.
  • It prevents tiles from algae, fungal attacks.
  • UAP 20 is the medium used to apply Mexol Pigment Paste on to the surface of the paving tiles in order to achieve the uniformity of colour.
  • Improves the tile aesthetics.

Colour : Clear

Odour : Sweet aromatic,camphor-like odour

Odour threshold : 2 to 5 ppm

Form : Liquid

Flash point : 15 '' C

Solubility in water : Insoluble

Specific gravity : : 0.86

Packing : 30 liter carboy

Usage

UAP 20 is usually applied by spray gun, sponge or brush. There could be increase in viscosity if stored for more than a couple of months or so, especially during hot weather or if stored without closing the lid. Therefore, Maieco Thinner can be used to bring the viscosity down depending on the mode of application. Slightly more quantity of Maieco Thinner can be used to bring down the viscosity for effective application in the form of spray using spray gun.

Used in/for

UAP 20 can be coating on most of the surfaces which can grip the coating film. UAP 20 is suitable for application on paving tiles, concrete, rocky surfaces, clay tiles and metal surfaces.

Special Notes
  • Store in cool place in order to avoid gradual changes in the set viscosity level.
  • Use Maieco Thinner to modify the viscosity as needed.
  • White patches may appear or UAP 20 coating may peel off if it is applied on moist surface. Therefore, apply UAP 20 only after the tiles are thoroughly dry.
  • Maintain a low optimum thickness.

Apply the Mould Wash using cloth or brush on to the areas of the moulds where cleaning is needed. Wash the mould clean using soap solution and water. Moulds with more concrete/colour remains need to be kept for 3 hours with Mould Wash poured in at. an approximate thickness of 3 millimeters. After 3 hours, excess mould wash may be kept aside for repeated future use. Wash the mould clean using the soap solution. Dip and drain the moulds in diluted soap solution/mould release agent before using them again.

  • Black
  • White
  • Yellow
  • Brown
  • Signal Red
  • Red
  • Grey
  • Green
  • Orange
  • Mahagony
  • Golden Yellow
  • Sand Stone
  • Golden Brown


Custom colour pigments may be prepared as per order in bulk quantities.

Usage

Mexol Pigment Paste is added to the UAP 20 and is to be mixed thoroughly to create a uniform colour shade and required colour depth. The quantity to be mixed in the UAP 20 differs for each colour .However, an approximate 8% w/w of UAP20 is to be used. Excess pigment in the mix can affect the quality especially in terms of its drying and durability. The correct balance between excess and insufficiency of quantity is gained out of practice.
