Efflock Admixture

Efflock Admixture

Revolutionary Efflorescence-Curing System…
​No other admixture is guaranteed* to stop efflorescence. Permanently.

Efflorescence is everywhere!

It occurs when moisture in concrete and masonry migrates to the surface and carries salt minerals that react with air to create calcium carbonate. It is typically manifested as an unsightly, white chalky deposit on the surface. And it can be difficult to remove. Very difficult.

How Much EffLock Liquid Admixture is Needed?

To determine the amount of EffLock needed, multiply the amount of cement (by weight) with the appropriate amount of EffLock Liquid Admixture.
It depends on the weight of cement included in each cubic yard. Some ready mix companies offer a 6.0, 6.5 or 7.0 bag mix design using 94 lb bags of Portland cement (and other materials that are frequently included to make up a 94 lb “bag”, e.g. fly ash).

Cement EffLock Liquid Admixture
40 lbs 3.2 oz – 4 oz (95 mL – 119 mL)
60 lbs 4.8 oz – 6 oz (142 mL – 178 mL)
80 lbs 6.4 oz – 8 oz (190 mL – 237 mL)
94 lbs 7.5 oz – 9.4 oz (222 mL – 278 mL)
100 lbs 8 oz – 10 oz (237 mL – 296 mL)

 

​Common Weights of Cement
Per 1 Yard of Concrete:

5.0 bag mix design: 5 X 94 = 470 lbs
6.0 bag mix design: 6 X 94 = 564 lbs
6.5 bag mix design: 6.5 X 94 = 611 lbs
7.0 bag mix design: 7 X 94 = 658 lbs

Thus, a 6.0 bag mix design would necessitate at least 45.12 ounces of EffLock (0.35 gallons) per each cubic yard:

(564 ÷ 100) x 8.0 oz = 45.12 oz

Remember, add 8 oz – 10 oz (237 mL – 296 mL) of EffLock Liquid Admixture per each 100 lbs of cement.
