The Euclid Chemical Company, a leading manufacturer of concrete and masonry construction products, announced that its Eucon Baracade WPT specialty admixture solution won the Editor's Choice Award for 2020 Most Innovative Products in the Materials for Concrete Construction category at the World of Concrete (WOC) in Las Vegas.
Formulated with a unique silicone, polymer-based emulsion technology, Eucon Baracade WPT is a high-performance, water-repellent admixture used to improve the durability and surface integrity of poured and precast concrete exposed to harsh weather conditions. Unlike topically applied sealers, Eucon Baracade WPT produces a chemically bonded, insoluble protection mechanism throughout the concrete mix. By resisting moisture and chloride ion penetration, concrete produced with Eucon Baracade WPT has a significantly reduced potential for scaling, spalling and other moisture-related degradation. For decorative, integrally colored concrete, this moisture resistance promotes a faster dry time, thereby reducing efflorescence potential and preserving color vibrancy.
