Kalmatron® products are designed for repairing damaged structures as remedial coats with patching materials.

KF-SEA

This light house was repaired with KF-SEA added to the concrete mix made with sand, gravel and water taken from the shores of the Tasmanian Sea.

Before repair, view from inside.

Before repair, seen from outside.

After repair the structure was coated with KF-F to protect it from sun heat and wind influences

INTRODUCTION

KALMATRON® KF-SEA is an admixture to regular concrete mixes containing unwashed sea sand and sea gravel where hydration of cement may be provided with sea water as well. The gray powder has a specific smell. After application the smell disappears. This inorganic cementitious compound discharges the electrochemical potential of most sea salts, which are aggressive to concrete structures.

RECOGNITION OF KALMATRON® KF-SEA

  • KALMATRON® KF-SEA performs best in the same environment from which the raw materials were taken.
  • Before any operation in a new place, it is necessary to determine which of the dosages (13 Kg/m3, 16 Kg/m3, or 19 Kg/m3) is optimal in a comparative compressive strength testimony.

USES OF KALMATRON® KF-SEA

  • Used for enhancing concrete and reinforced concrete in centrally loaded foundations, pillars, walls, columns, etc. Not for bending elements with thickness less than 450 mm.
  • Facilities for Industrial and Military hazardous waste, dams, tunnels, heavy traffic roads, ramps, seaports, airports, etc.

BENEFITS FOR CONCRETE STRUCTURES

  • Used with natural and unwashed sea fillers for higher durability than any known HP concrete mixes.
  • Absolute resistance to salt corrosion of concrete structure, prevention of metal anchor and rebar rusting as well.
  • Highest liquid impermeability, resistance to vapor transmission, and advanced as radiation shielding material.
  • Reduces exothermic heat up to two times.
  • Highly resistant to chemical corrosions and Freeze/Thaw cycles.
  • Stable resistance to core efflorescence.
  • Mortars with KF-SEA are very adhesive to concrete and granite.

BENEFITS FOR CONCRETE APPLICATION

  • Workable with reduced Water-Cement ratio at 10 to 20%.
  • Increases compressive strength 35% and more.
  • Increases Density, Reduces Shrinkage & Accelerates Early Strength.
  • Increases Yield of the ready mix concrete by 8%.

ECONOMICAL ADVANTAGES

  • Absolute independence from suppliers of sand, gravel, and water. Take them from the sea shore.
  • Facilities for Industrial and Military hazardous waste, dams, tunnels, heavy traffic roads, ramps, seaports, airports, etc.
  • No other chemicals applied with KF-SEA.
  • Cost of the ready mix concrete with KF-SEA is 40% in comparison with salt resistant HP concrete and only 25% compared to conventional concrete.

THE ESSENTIALS OF KALMATRON® KF-SEA

  • Concrete/mortar structures with KF-SEA have a distinctly unique appearance. Compaction with a density of 2,500 Kg/m3 to 3,000 Kg/m3 makes KF-SEA virtually an artificial rock.
  • Dark or black-gray color of concrete structure is an indication of complete mineralogical oxidation by the KF-SEA admixture, or the so called "Ironing of Concrete".
