AGGREGATES

The aggregates have a major effect on the appearance of the finished concrete surface. The aggregates should therefore be selected, stored and used in an appropriate way so as to meet the aesthetic demands to the finished concrete surface. The mix of the aggregates should be kept as constant as possible in order to avoid differences in shade of the finished concrete surface.

ADMIXES

All admixes should be colourless to avoid discoloration of the white or light concrete. Air entraining agents are known to reduce the tendency of efflorescence. Such admixes that act upon the setting and hardening should also be used in accordance with usual guidelines. To ensure the requested white colour it is recommended always to make trial mixes.

STORAGE

CEMIX BRILLIANT WHITE cement can be stored for at least twelve months, if kept indoor under suitable and dry conditions. Care should be taken to avoid moist. CEMIX BRILLIANT WHITE cement in bags should be kept inside on pallets with unbroken plastic wrapping until it is to be used. Care should be taken to avoid moisture getting into contact with the cement bags from beneath the pallet. The pallets should be stored in a dry environment at as low a temperature as possible to reduce the rate of moisture uptake. Bulk cement should be stored in air-tight silos, using dried air to transport the cement. If the cement contains lumps it should not be used unless tested, as the strength cannot be guaranteed. Do not store cement bags directly on the ground or on a floor or even with direct contact to an outer wall. We recommend that cement bags are stacked on a counter floor 10-20 cm above the regular floor or on pallets. The cavity below the counter floor should be ventilated to keep the bags dry.
