SikaMix® W-10

Water Repelling and Efflorescence Controlling Admixture

SikaMix® W-10 is a non-chloride and non-corrosive liquid integral water-repelling admixture for use in concrete masonry units, where zero or very low slump concrete is required. SikaMix® W-10 is formulated to meet ASTM E 514 Standard test for Water Penetration and Leakage Through Masonry. SikaMix® W-10 contains water repellent additives that chemically react with cement, filling the pores of the concrete unit with water insoluble compound and wetting agents, creating a plasticizing effect that densifies the concrete structure. This reduces water absorption capability of the capillary pores and minimizes migration of the water to the surface from within.

  • Reduces water absorption
  • Controls efflorescence
  • Improves color intensity
  • Densifies concrete
  • Increases compressive strength
  • Reduces shrinkage
  • Improves appearance and production speed
  • Provides mold and stain resistance
