Fields of Application

Continued, unprotected contact of the skin with cement gel, mortar and concrete can cause a chromate eczema. SYNCHRO® 119P (CR) can therefore be applied in all cases where cement containing products are processed and the exposure of the skin is possible. SYNCHRO 119P (CR) is predominantly used in the production of dry-mixed mortar or concrete.

Properties/Mode of Action

SYNCHRO 119P (CR) is a highly effective chromate reducer in powder form. The agent has good flowing properties, therefore it can be dosed very exactly. SYNCHRO 119P (CR) serves to transform the toxic, water-soluble Chrome VI into the physiologically harmless Chrome III. The dosage of the agent, adjusted to the chromate content of the cement, leads to a concentration of less than 2 ppm as requested in the European Guideline 1999/45/EG.

  • The use of SYNCHRO 119P (CR) renders the following benefits:
  • Neutral to mix design and temperature resistant up to 300°C.
  • The chrome VI content can be safely reduced under 1 ppm.
  • Can be stored up to 12 months without loss of efficiency.
  • No brown color effects on the surface of concrete or mortar.
  • No hazardous good.

Dosage and Use

SYNCHRO 119 P (CR) is homogenously blended with cements, dry-mixed mortar and concrete or other cementitious products.
