Construction

AETERNUM is a next-generation compound powder adsorbed on active micro silicates, which combines the high pozzolanic activity of the latter with an exceptional rheology, fluidity without segregation, water resistance and high resistance both to mechanical compression and to chemical and atmospheric attacks. AETERNUM consists of spherical particles with a size of a few hundredths of a micron. Its surface is quite wide: more than 220.000 cm²/g (Blaine). This feature gives it a high reactivity on cement grains and a ‘high ability to capture and fix the calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)2] and to transform it first into a silicate hydrate and then into calcium silicate stable and irreversible. It should be observed that in all the cement based mixtures, to obtain a good workability, it is necessary to use a quantity of water always higher than the quantity required for the hydration of the cement.

This causes the formation of capillaries and cavities in the hardened cement paste. The more is the amount of water used, the more these generate.

AETERNUM having a phase transfer agent internally, despite its high surface at the nano molecular level, guarantees without the use of additional super plasticizers, concretes with easy and good workability, without shrinkage and with a higher final performance.

Due to its chemical conformation, AETERNUM accelerates the cement hydration. Therefore, during the summer season it is highly recommended to do some precautionary tests.



If added to the mixture at a rate of 2 – 4% by weight of cement, it captures and reacts with the free lime, filling the gaps in the cement paste. This makes it more compact, impermeable, resistant and consequently more long-lasting and with a better aspect. This additive allows the packaging of rheoplastic concretes and rheo-dynamic SCC with very low w/c ratios.



INTERESTING ASPECTS AND POZZOLANIC EFFECT

AETERNUM has an extremely vast specific surface mentioned in accordance with UNI EN 196-5 (cement for instance is about 0,5 square meters per gram) this highlights the very elevated hydraulic and pozzolana effect and efficiency. The reactive fillers close the porosity and gaps in the concrete between granules and aggregates with a compound system which gives concrete great adhesive, cohesive and anti-wash away properties. Concrete treated with AETERNUM will eliminate segregation and paste bleeding.



IN SUMMARY, AETERNUM® LINE OF PRODUCTS PRESENT:


  • Instant 100% Waterproofing.

  • More than 100% increase in Concrete Durability and Life Expectancy (as attached 28 days test result).

  • Constant and exceptional increase in mechanical performances (Compression, Traction, Flexion).

  • Enormous increase in resistance to aggressive chemicals (Hydrochloric Acid).

  • Enormous resistance to Salt.

  • AETERNUM has its own Super Plasticizer in the mix. Thus, the Batching Plant will no longer have to outsource it, plus you will rest assure that the included Super-plasticizer is of the highest quality (not a Chinese or…).

  • Can be Pumped over 500 meters without Segregation issues, as the paste is very compact and smooth.

  • No deterioration or rust complication to the steel structure, as it is protected by AETERNUM.

  • No wash away. Nano and Microsilicates and other ingredients protect the cement cells from excess water even when poured directly in water.

  • No AlKalo-Agregate or Alkaline Pop out Reaction.

  • No Superficial Bleeding.

  • Enormous job site time saver, as Waterproofing instantly starts the moment the AETERNUM is being added to the mix design. In other words, the moment of de-casting. Consequently, back filing can be done with any material.

  • Simple to use.


THE FOLLOWING ARE THE AREAS OF AETERNUM® Q-GUARD APPLICATIONS:
