Build Better Concrete
Concrete Enhancement Technology
Learn more about our breakthrough
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.
BARRIER ONE (PIA)
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.
BARRIER ONE MVRA – CPS
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.
CSXtreme is specially formulated for exterior applications. CSXtreme provides corrosion, shrink and ASR inhibiting properties and increased strength.
Barrier One WPX is a demonstrated & certified complex sodium silicate- based Type “S” Waterproofing Admixture (per ASTM C494/ C494M). It is an integral waterproofing agent that produces low – permeability concrete across a wide spectrum of mix designs without the potential of contributing to surface coating delamination. WPX is classified as a PRAH by ACI 212.3 R & is a recommended admix in combatting hydrostatic head pressures found in both below / above grade water retaining structures.
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.
Barrier One has set and maintained the standard in concrete enhancement technology.
Concrete Solutions for Today’s Construction Environment
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.
