Learn more about our breakthrough concrete admixture products...
Construction of all types relies on strong, moisture-controlled concrete that can stand up to harsh environments. With our full line of concrete enhancement technology (CET) products, you have the power to completely control the properties of the concrete used on the jobsite.
Our flagship product and industry standard; the Porosity Inhibiting Admixture (PIA) was designed to reduce moisture movement while densifying concrete and adding strength stronger and denser, PIA advance concrete enhancement technology also mitigates slab shrinkage while reducing warping. Independent testing also demonstrates greatly reduced alkali silica reactivity (ASR) and chloride ion penetration. Barrier One is integral to the concrete and substantially reduces permeability as well as eliminates the need for surface sealers and coatings.
CSXtreme is specially formulated for exterior applications. CSXtreme provides corrosion, shrink and ASR inhibiting properties and increased strength.
CPS is a Moisture Vapor Reduction Admixture (MVRA) designed to provide an economical solution for the concrete moisture emission issues that are prevalent in the construction industry.
Barrier One Concrete Admixtures is proud to announce our newest addition to our product lineup. Our continuing evolution and innovations, coupled with extensive testing, research, and development have led to the creation of Endacere, our newest addition, an Acid Reducing Concrete Admixture (ARCA). Barrier One Concrete Admixtures provides leadership through our advanced Concrete Enhancement Technology (CET)®, research and development, independent testing, and proven quality processes.
Scientifically ProvenBarrier One, CSXtreme, Endacere, WPX Waterproofer, and CPS (MVRA) have been independently tested by leading laboratories and have been scientifically proven to inhibit the porosity of concrete and increase strength while reducing ASR, shrinkage and corrosion.
Precision Quality ControlEach batch of our concrete admixtures have been extensively tested. Our rigorous quality control standards ensure that every tote you receive performs as promised.
Industry Leading WarrantiesOur products are proven in the field and are warranted to perform as stated on your project. Our flagship product, Barrier One, is warranted against damaging moisture vapor emission for the life of the concrete.
Adhesion GuaranteeOur unmatched Adhesion Guarantee provides peace of mind to perform as stated on your project. Our flagship product, Barrier One, is guaranteed against adhesion failures for the life of the concrete.
LEED PerformanceOur admixtures contribute to LEED performance in a variety of ways, including enhancing the insulative qualities of the slab, increasing the useful life-cycle of the concrete substrate, contributing to healthy indoor air quality, and reducing vapor emissions.
Zero VOC PledgeAll of our products contain no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Barrier One has set and maintained the standard in concrete enhancement technology.
Concrete Solutions for Today’s Construction Environment
Barrier One Concrete Admixtures is the premier concrete admixture provider in the United States. Because moisture easily travels through untreated concrete, the costs of adhesion failure and topically applied moisture mitigation can quickly eat into the profits of even the largest construction firms.
Concrete takes on moisture 100x faster than it releases it back into the atmosphere, so exposure to water becomes a significant problem. With outdoor applications, the problems can escalate with freeze-thaw cycles and exposure to acids and chemicals such as deicing agents. Moisture moving within untreated concrete can cause embedded metals to corrode and the concrete to become compromised, dramatically reducing the strength and life expectancy of the slab.
Our flagship product, Barrier One, was developed to solve the problems inherent in concrete applications on construction sites around the globe. With the addition of CSXtreme and CPS, our robust product line continues to deliver real-world results. Barrier One and CSXtreme remain the only scientifically-proven porosity inhibiting admixtures (PIA) on the market.
