Masonry and Hardscape solutions

Admixtures for producing high quality manufactured concrete products.

Innovative admixtures for producers of architectural concrete masonry and hardscapes products

We have developed a full line of admixtures designed for dry-cast concrete products.  We manufacture admixtures to control efflorescence and enhance the production of architectural concrete block, concrete pavers and segmental retaining wall units. OPTEC® offers admixtures to control primary and secondary efflorescence, while QUANTEC® offers plasticisers, accelerators and strength enhancers to improve overall quality and enhance production.


OPTEC® — Performance Enhancement for architectural CMU and hardscapes

Most hardscape producers battle efflorescence on a daily basis. Our OPTEC® line of admixtures are designed to control all types of efflorescence. At the same time they also help improve colour intensity and physical properties. With OPTEC®, the end product is strong, is durable and repels water. And, of course, all OPTEC® admixtures make concrete highly workable to lower production cycle times.

QUANTEC® — A complete range of solutions for high-volume producers of low-slump and no-slump concrete

Our QUANTEC® line admixtures provide a multitude of benefits including improve plasticity and machinability, which results in greater throughput, enhanced compressive strength and durability and reduced absorption.
