6.05 Waterproof Powder is a blend of waterproofing admixtures that have been specially designed for use with Portland cement concrete, mortars and renders. The admixture, when mixed with cementitious materials, acts as an integral waterproofer, reducing the permeability of water through the pores and capillaries of the hardened cement.
The admixture is entirely free of chlorides or nitrates; 6.05 is widely used by block and paver manufacturers to eliminate efflorescence and is available in 4kg plastic pails or 25kg plastic lined cartons.
Uses of 6.05 Waterproof Powder:
To waterproof precast concrete, and concrete masonry blocks during manufacture.
To reduce efflorescence in pavers and other decorative concrete products.

To waterproof water retaining structures, dams, reservoirs, concrete tanks, swimming pools, and water handling and storage facilities.
