PRO-Mix from Cement Australia is a new range of additives designed to simplify
and speed up DIY projects.
PRO-Mix additives make concreting, rendering and brick and block laying
easier, particularly for those in the DIY segment, helping them achieve their
projects quicker and with greater confidence. Making concrete, render or mortar
has never been simpler or more straightforward for the DIY enthusiast.
Each additive in the PRO-Mix range is formulated to improve the
performance of base products such as Cement Australia’s PRO-50 Concrete Mix or
Sand & Cement, both supplied in convenient 20kg bags. By adding one sachet
of PRO-Mix product to a 20kg bag of base product, the DIY’er can tailor the performance
of the material to meet their needs.
Using Cement Australia ‘PRO-50
Concrete Mix’ Base
PRO-Mix TOUGH synthetic fibres add reinforcement to concrete when extra
toughness is required. Recommended for heavily loaded slabs and pathways, the
additive simplifies the project as there is no need to buy reinforcing steel
PRO-Mix FAST additive reduces concrete setting time and accelerates
early-age strength growth. Providing more time to place and finish the concrete
than with a Rapid Set concrete mix, the additive still delivers high early-age
strengths that generally allow the concreted surface to be used the same day.
PRO-Mix FINISH additive is used to produce flowing concrete for
achieving easy finishes on slabs and level pathways. Being pourable, it finds
its own level, reducing the effort involved in the task.
Using Cement Australia ‘Sand
& Cement’ Base
PRO-Mix RENDER converts the ‘Sand & Cement’ base product into a
multi-surface render that can be trowelled to a fine finish. The render can be
used on blueboard, AAC blocks and panels, and brick or block masonry walls.
PRO-Mix MORTAR converts the ‘Sand & Cement’ base product into a
strong, versatile mortar displaying good moisture retention properties for
improved workability and longer working time. Colour can be added from Cement
Australia’s range of oxides to both the render and the mortar.
