A multi-component, powdered admixture, System 1 is especially suited to architectural precast and glass-fiber reinforced concrete. By combining six separate ingredients, the company notes, it simplifies production; attains uniform color intensity with dispersing and wetting agents; eliminates the need for liquid polymer when fabricating GFRC; and, closes the internal capillaries within the matrix, leading to a denser, more acid and stain resistant finished concrete. Through anti-foaming and anti-shrinkage agents, respectively, System 1 eliminates pinholes plus surface crazing, bowing, and curling when coupled with proper curing protocol. — Trinic LLC, 800/475-1975; www.trinic.us
