ADI-CON™ CW PLUS
Waterproofing Admixture for Concrete
- Chloride free
- Provides integral waterproofing
- Increases chemical resistance
- Minimal effect on setting times
- Simple to use
- Dry powder
Adi-Con CW Plus is an integral waterproofing, admixture for Portland cement based concrete and mortars.
Adi-Con CW Plus is a dry, free flowing powder containing a blend of inorganic and organic chemicals, a small amount of sand and silica based materials. The reactive materials react with lime generated by the hydration reaction of cement and “plug” the capillary porosity, making concrete watertight under water head pressure.
Adi-Con CW Plus is a reactive material. It may either accelerate or retard the setting characteristics of concrete or mortar depending on the specific cement chemistry, water/cement ratio and temperature. Therefore it is necessary to evaluate the setting characteristics of specific concrete or mortar mix design prior to its use. The required dosage will depend upon the application. It is the responsibility of the user to check with Technical Services as to the suitability of this admixture in a given application.
Health and Safety
Adi-Con CW Plus is an alkaline powder. Avoid contact with eyes and prolonged contact with skin. Wear protective equipment during handling. Harmful if ingested. KEEP PRODUCT OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. FOR INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY. Consult MSDS for additional information.
Adi-Con CW Plus is supplied in 22.7 kg (50 lb.) paper bags or 27.3 kg (60 lb.) pails. It is also supplied in 10 kg (22 lb.) re-pulpable paper bags for adding directly into concrete mixing trucks.
Adi-Con CW Plus is used in quantities varying from 0.8 to 1% by the weight of cementitous material in the mix. Contact Technical Services for additional information regarding dosage for specific applications.

Current Guide Specification and Application Instructions contain additional information specific to each application and must be followed.
Adi-Con CW Plus is mixed with concrete or mortar at the time of batching. The procedure for adding the admixture will vary according to the type of batch plant operation and equipment. Please contact Technical Service for additional information regarding procedures in various batch plant operations. It is important to obtain a homogenous mixture of Adi-Con CW Plus with the concrete or mortar. Do not add Adi-Con CW Plus powder directly to wet concrete or mortar as it may cause clumping, without a uniform dispersion of the admixture in the mix.
A limited twelve (12) month Material Replacement Warranty is available. For details contact Technical Service.
