Cast Stone


Cast stone has timeless appeal as a design feature in the construction of houses, banks, churches, schools, libraries, and commercial buildings. It’s also very practical for fabricating ornamental items where the molds can be quickly stripped and reused. Since it is most commonly hand-tamped (pneumatically) into standard or custom-built forms, this process comes with its own set of challenges. Full and consistent compaction is crucial to its appearance, structural integrity, and service life.

Tech Shield admixtures assist with this fabrication process by providing a balance of mix lubricity and compaction resistance. This prevents unwanted material shifts in compacted areas that can affect product integrity. These cost-effective admixtures also improve stripping strength, reduce absorption and efflorescence potential, and impart lasting water penetration resistance.
