A mould release agent is a chemical substance that creates a moulding surface barrier so that products don’t get stuck to a mould. We are well aware of the need to use mould release agent for concrete and formwork, as it is very crucial to prevent the concrete from sticking to the surface of the mould.
When a proper mould release agent is not used it has been observed that it becomes difficult to remove the mould and even the finish of the concrete is not aesthetically pleasing. To achieve easy removal of mould and a good smooth finish of the concrete surface it is advisable to use an excellent performing mould release agent.
Our SETRELEASE ECO is a wonderful product in itself, it is an eco friendly, biodegradable oil based mould release agent. It has no impact on the mould besides allowing it to detach from the concrete leaving a smooth finish.
It is a specially formulated blend of bio degradable oil based mould release agent, which is superior then conventional mould oil. The chemicals react with the alkali in the concrete to form a thin water repellent skin on the surface of the mould, thereby enabling easy stripping from concrete and protects steel and wooden formwork. SETRELEASE ECO is supplied as ready to use liquid.
Due to the excellent release properties, little or no deposit of cement paste remains on the shutter surface. Minimum cleaning & a further coat of SETRELEASE ECO renders shuttering ready for re-use.
SETRELEASE ECO provides quick, clean and easy stripping of moulds and formwork. It ensures high quality, fair-faced and stain-free concrete surface. Protects aluminium windows and door frames from plaster and mortar splashes.
• ECO friendly
• Ensures good fair-faced concrete
• Can be used on all type of formwork
• Minimises cleaning of shutters before reuse
• Can be used with steam curing
• Reduces the incidence of air pocket and tendency of surface spalli ng of corners
*Applicable on all types of formwork*
SETRELEASE ECO can be applied by brush, sponge or conventional mould oil-sprayer. If an oil sprayer is used, care should be taken to choose correct size of
sprayer. Apply one thin and even coat of SETRELEASE ECO over the entire surface. Even a thin coat is enough to achieve effective coverage.
Excess application is uneconomical and may lead to surface dusting. Wire or brush off any excess particles on the surface and apply one coat of SETRELEASE ECO as before. To remove SETRELEASE ECO completely, for recoating mould or shutter surface, use strong industrial detergent together with stiff brushing & then thoroughly rinse with clean water. It is recommended that after application of SETRELEASE ECO concrete pouring to be done within 24 hrs or same day.
A coverage between 40 to 60 m²/litre is possible depending upon the porosity and texture of mould surface.
FAIRCURE WX WHITE is a wax based concrete curing compound. It is white coloured curing compound. When it is applied on the concrete surface, it forms a continuous layer of wax over it. The wax layer remains on the surface of concrete, but do not penetrate into surface. It only breaks by natural weathering or anyone remove it by scratching. FAIRCURE WX WHITE is useful where curing cannot be done by water ponding like on vertical or inclined surface.
FAIRCURE WX WHITE can be used on fresh concrete surface and newly exposed concrete surfaces after removal of formwork. It can be used for pavement, runway, bridge deck, towers, chimneys, canal lining, columns and beams.
Benefits of wax based concrete curing compound:
There are various benefits of wax based concrete curing compounds. Some of them are given below:
• By obtaining superior strength, it helps in completing the hydration of the cement.
• It also provides a water repellent film.
• The biggest advantage of this compound is that it can be used with all types of cement.
• As it reduces the breaking of the edges while lifting the elements, therefore, it helps in saving the cost of production.
SALIENT FEATURES of FAIRCURE WX WHITE
• Only single coat required for whole of the curing period
• Reduce water usage
• Ensures perfect curing
• Ensures hard wearing surface
• Easy to use and apply
• Reduce labour cost
• Time saver
• Easy to identify treated surface
• Stir well the liquid curing compound before applying.
• Fill the stirred liquid in the high volume low pressure spray.
• Start applying uniform coat of FAIRCURE WX WHITE and keep nozzle of spray 40-50cm from concrete surface. Move the nozzle back and forth to ensure complete and even coverage. The pump pressure should be maintained at a level to produce a fine spray.
• For newly placed concrete, apply FAIRCURE WX WHITE as soon as visible surface moisture is invisible, e.g. typically 1/2 to 2 hours after placing shuttered and precast concrete.
• For demoulded concrete surface, apply FAIRCURE WX WHITE immediately after removing mould/ formwork.
PACKING AND COVERAGE
FAIRCURE WX WHITE is supplied in 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 200 Ltr. carboys. FAIRCURE WX WHITE has coverage of 5 to 6 m² per Ltr.
With time the hardened concrete loses its ability to hold the binding concrete materials together due to weathering or atmospheric condition. Concrete repair products are used to repair building cracks, surface scaling, damaged or chipped out concrete surface etc.
Benefits of Concrete:
1) Prevents Longevity
2) Prevents further damage to concrete
3) Reduces the risk of injury
4) Stays Functional
Every time your concrete structure has cracks or it is has started scaling or chipping off there is a good chance of moisture entering into that part of the concrete structure which can cause more damage to the structure and even cause corrosion of the structural reinforcement. The moisture seepage can cause the cracks to even widen due to the freeze and thaw reaction cycle.
It better repair material can increase the lifeline of the structure by giving it back its durability which in longer run saves time and money and frequent repair work is not allowed.
It is a ready to use blend of dry powder which only requires water addition to it making it a free flowing, non shrink repair mortar. It is a micro concrete repair mortar infused with fibres which help to compensate the shrinkage of concrete. It gives high early strength and long term durability due to less water requirement. It is suitable for all types of structural repair work of load bearing locations.
CEMSCREED HM(F) is used to repair columns where a major material loss is observed, for soffit repair work, for repair in areas where use of hand applied mortar is not practically possible or even the reinforcement is very heavily congested. It is used to do beams and columns jacketing work.
For larger repair work 12mm clean, well graded, saturated, surface dry aggregate shall be added to CEMSCREED HM(F).
Coming to the application of the product it is required to make sure the surface preparation is done very well, for that cut back the defective concrete till a sound base is reached. If there is a smooth surface then roughen the surface to make sure the new material can be adhered to the old surface properly. If there is any exposed corroded reinforcement, then check the whole circumference of the bar and clean all the rust and corrosion from it. After that you can apply SAFECORE R product on the exposed reinforcement bars to stop it from getting corroded further due to any reasons. Make sure that the surface is wetted properly and any access water present is removed. Apply FAIRBOND EP as a bonding primer on the prepared surface and then pour/ place CEMSCREED HM(F) using pump. After the placing is done curing shall start after 2 hours for as long as concrete curing is required.

Stamp concrete is a decorative and intelligent approach for exterior floor surfaces. This approach to exterior floor surfaces is very cost effective and there are lot of design options available such as surface resembling to paver, flagstone, slate, worn rock, bricks, stones, tiles or wood with various colour options. Further coating of stamp concrete can give a glossy finish for better aesthetics. The process includes preparation of sub-grade, placing of forms, providing reinforcement for stability, placing the concrete, screed and finishing the concrete, applying colour and lastly stamping the concrete using desired moulds.
Stamped concrete can make a dramatic impression, and there are many reasons why home owners are choosing this authentic material to enhance their landscapes and buildings. Along with the known durability and long lasting feature of regular concrete, stamping adds a decorative touch making it a desirable and economical product for all.
What are the benefits of Stamp Concrete?
It is durable and long lasting, which can last for decades without the requirement of renovation.
It is available in many colours and patterns.
Can be installed twice as fast as natural stones and pavers.
Can be customised with lots of design possibilities
Better resistance to traffic and moisture
Procedure of creating decorative outdoor flooring with stamp
Surface preparation: The sub-grade is important for concrete and therefore it must be well compacted due to settlement or cracks due to settlement.
Formwork placement: formwork should be clean and should be able to withstand the concrete placement.
Placement of reinforcement: Nominal reinforcement is usually placed for structural function to provide structural integrity to avoid cracks and increase impact resistance.
Apply a layer of screed for levelling and giving a proper finish to the surface.
Then apply FAIRMATE STAMPCRETE HARDENER through broadcasting on the screed when it has reached the desired surface plasticity. After the first layer of broadcasting let it absorb water from the concrete and float it using a bull floating.
Apply second layer of coloured hardener for better coverage.
Next apply FAIRMATE STAMPCRETE RELEASE AGENT to make it easily for removing the stamp without sticking to the concrete surface.
Before stamping check whether the concrete has attended the right amount of Plasticity. Stamping too early and too late can spoil the whole work and desired results will not be obtained.
The stamping: Before actual stamping, the stamp layout is diagrammed and enough workers are deployed as the window of time for stamping is generally short, especially in warm weather. Typically, the edges are pre-textured first so that when larger stamps are used later, they may not overlap the forms and get fully depressed into the concrete. The concrete is then stamped in the same sequence it was placed. Stamping alignment is checked regularly verifying the pattern to ensure desired outcome.
Once the slab has cured sufficiently, you should apply a finish coat of sealer. Most manufacturers recommend applying the sealer several weeks later, after a light surface cleaning. Be careful not to apply the sealer too heavily, which could trap moisture in the slab. One of the most effective techniques for applying sealer is to combine both spraying and rolling, especially when the stamped pattern has deep grout lines. Going back over the surface with a roller where necessary helps to distribute the sealer uniformly.
Some amazing results of stamp concrete by FAIRMATE:
Is it possible to have a water vapour permeable system which gives excellent waterproofing to the substrate?
Yes absolutely, Our EPOAQUA SL product is water based epoxy, water vapour permeable system.
It is known that concrete surface has some water which does not bond with the cement and is later evaporated due to the hydration process. The pores that remains intact after this water is evaporated or after the hardening of concrete can collect water again due to various reasons such as poor plumbing or soil moisture content or even rain fall etc. This collected water is again evaporated due to the equilibrium reached with the exposed surrounding. This process of achieving equilibrium will rather continue if there is increase or decrease in relative humidity of the ambient air.
This situation of moisture content present in pours when try to escape after the coating is applied can cause bubbles on the surface before hardening. It can also reduce adhesion of the coating to the substrate. To avoid these situations to occur it is required that the floor topping allows the surface to breathe and allow easy evaporation of the water vapour from the substrate but at the same time protect the substrate from liquid water.
Such flooring system can be effective on humid substrates. These floorings due to its ability to allow the substrates to breath can help it to have
EPOAQUA SL is a water vapour permeable epoxy advanced resin based flooring system. It is a complete system in itself, having low odour, low emission, hard-wearing, water-proofing surface with good mechanical and chemical properties. It is available in a wide colour range. The ideal thickness of the layer is between 2mm to 4mm.
EPOAQUA SL is very economic product and can be applied very easily. The system consist of Primer, Base Coat, Top coat and Sealer coat of the same series.
Firstly it is required to prepare the surface before application of primer. The surface must be free from any kind of contamination such as oil, grease, surface treatment, and coatings etc. The surface must be mechanically prepared for proper gripping and any kind of holes or voids shall be fully exposed. Any kind of loose material or dust can be removed using a brush or vacuum.
EPOAQUA SL PRIMER shall be applied using a brush, roller or airless spray. It is available in two components base and hardener which is required to be mechanically mixed for a minimum of 3 minutes before application.
Next apply EPOAQUA SL BASE COAT which is a three component material containing base, hardener and aggregates. The base coat is applied by spreading the mixed material in desired thickness evenly using a notch trowel.
Apply EPOAQUA SL TOP COAT a two component material consisting base and hardener. It is mixed well and spread evenly in required thickness using a notch trowel.
Apply EPOAQUA SL SEALER COAT after the top coat. It is a two component material which is mixed properly using mechanical method and applied using a brush or a roller.
The above mentioned system is essential to be followed to achieve the water vapour permeable flooring.

We are very proud to announce that Fairmate Chemicals is making the complete range of polycarboxylate ether with a capacity of 40,000 MT per year. We have also developed bio-based PCE that reduces the environmental impact to a great extent. Hence, our entire range of BROCRETE products is made from bio-based PCE.
The availability of renewable raw materials is a concern for all. The need to reduce the carbon footprint in the construction chemical industry has pushed us to use environmentally friendly bio-based raw materials for producing superplasticizers with a low carbon footprint. Sugarcane by-products after sugar production can be effectively used for making superplasticizers for concrete.
Considering we are using the material which has no particular use after sugar production. We are reducing waste and making an effective bio-based product for the better. Raw materials used for manufacturing superplasticizers based on crude oil have a carbon content of more than 80% compared to bio-based raw materials.
By using bio-based materials for making superplasticizers, we are moving towards an environmentally friendly and sustainable product.
Why do we need water proofing? There is a simple answer to this.
Water proofing is required to stop the ingress of water in the structure making it water resistant. It acts as a protective coating from other elements as well such as oil and grease, chemical attacks, acid rain etc. The dual purpose of Faircoat Damproof allows us to achieve both our purposes of waterproofing and protective coating.
Faircoat Dampproof is best suited when used to protect the internal wall, ceilings etc from all possible attacks of dampness, leakage to the structure & also when you need an antimicrobial coating. It is widely used to prevent any leakage of oil and chemicals from bund areas where large quantity of such harmful substance is stored. We all have come across external walls where graffiti art is done which is extremely difficult to remove. Faircoat Damproof is the absolute solution, as it is easily cleanable and hygienic. Hence, maintaining the clean look of the structure.
Being environmental friendly and of very low odour is it easy to apply.
Faircoat Dampproof is a 2 component material off white colour material. The Base and hardener is required to be mixed using a mechanical tool. The component can be thinned down by adding water to it, not more than 20-30% by volume of total material. To make the surface more even and to achieve a putty like finish add white cement by 20-30%.
Before applying Faircoat Dampproof to the structure it is necessary to make sure that the substrate is completely free from any kind of contamination such as oil, grease, paint etc. After the surface cleaning is complete, it is required to fill all the hole on the substrate cause by air trapped on the face of the formwork during pouring or any kind of pin holes present using Fairscreed VF (a concrete repair compound).
Minimum two coats are required to achieve the desired results. The pot life of Faircoat Dampproof is 80 minutes at 20ºC. Apply the first coat using a spray (airless), brush or roller. After the application of first coat to achieve a non slip finish spread silica sand on the wet surface and let the surface dry for a minimum of 18 hours before applying 2nd coat. The overall thickness of both the coats shall be 200-250 micron, with and approximate coverage of 0.20 – 0.25kg/m2.
In case the substrate is in damp condition a priming material such as Safecore WB primer shall be applied before the application of 1st coat of Faircoat Dampproof.

FLOWGROUT HES is a blend of special cement, selected and graded aggregates and Fairmate admixtures, enabling it to achieve high strengths in short time frame.
FLOWGROUT HES is useful for wide range of applications where fast strength is required, like:
1. Machine bedplates.
2. Anchoring bolts.
3. Bridge bearing pads.
4. Pre-cast concrete sections.
5. Cavities, gaps and recesses.
Surface Preparation: All surfaces must be clean, sound and free from dust, ice, oils, grease or other surface contaminants such as curing membranes and form release agent etc. Bolt holes and fixing pockets should be free of dirt and debris by air blasting. For maximum bond, surfaces should be abraded or roughened, preferably by mechanical means such as needle gun, grit blasting, grinding etc. All prepared surfaces must be saturated with water several hours prior to grouting, ensuring it is free of any surface water or puddles.
Temperature control :
Temperature affects setting time and rate of increase for strength. For optimum performance maintain grout, concrete and/or steel substrates within the range of 25-30ºC prior to, during, and for 48 hours after placement of the grout.
Mixing Equipment :
FLOWGROUT HES is must be mechanically mixed using a mechanical grout mixer or a suitable drum mixer. The grout mixer will reduce the chances of the mix becoming lumpy or aerated.
1) 4 Liters of clean water per 25 kg bag of grout.
2) Add the powder component to approximately 80% of the total amount water component while mixing.
3) Add the remaining 20% of the water component to the grout at a steady rate while continuing to mix.
4) Mix until the grout appears homogenous (3-5 minutes). Allow to stand so any entrapped air can escape. Do not add more water to increase flow of the grout if a mix has stiffened due to time delays. If the grout is unworkable discard.
