Low Acid Concentration Resistant A100

Low Acid Concentration Resistant A100 2017-10-26T17:42:16+00:00

A100 COLD FUSION CONCRETE is a 3/8-inch nominal (or other size) aggregate concrete material designed for general purpose use. A100 is resistant to degradation in various low concentrations of acids ranging from 5-percent to 30-percent with little to no mass loss. A100 can be utilized in medium slump applications for construction of secondary containment, various feature construction such as drain systems, foundations, walls, flatwork, and every other application typically observed with Portland Cement mixtures.

What is Cold Fusion Concrete (CFC ®)?

Geopolymer Solutions, LLC (GPS) has developed Cold Fusion Concrete (CFC ®). CFC® is a normal weight and lightweight, single dry material concrete, for water mixing. CFC® is resistant to most natural and man-made reagents including chlorides, sulfates, and various concentrations of acids including sulfuric* (.01 to 98%), hydrochloric (.01 to 85%), phosphoric (.01 to 75%), acetic (.01 to 80%), and nitric (.01 to 75%). CFC complies with the ASTMC C1157 Standard Performance Specification for Hydraulic Cement.

Features

  • Resistant to various types of acid exposure (except hydrofluoric) at concentrations ranging from 5-percent to 30-percent.
  • Resistant to hydrocarbon, chloride, and sulfate exposure degradation.
  • Resistant to solvent exposure.
  • Green Technology.
  • Can be colored.
  • Utilized at slumps ranging from 1 to 6 inches.
  • Fiber reinforced (micro).
  • Interior and exterior applications.
  • Can be used in hot or cold climates.
  • Improves corrosion protection when placed on metal features.
  • Supplied in Super Sacks, 55-lb bags, or Ready Mixed Concrete delivery.

Recommended Uses

A100 is used in most any pneumatic or conventionally placed concrete applications where the completed feature will be subject to low concentrations of various reagents and chemicals in very hot or very cold climates.  A100 is many times utilized in the Petrochemical, Fertilizer, Food & Beverage, Mining, and Foundry Industries, and, the Oil & Gas Industry including off-shore drilling platforms  due to its chemical resistance and complete resistance to chloride and sulfate attack.
