ConTec EC-60 is available in totes and drums. An ICT representative will work with you to determine the proper dispensing system for your operation.


ConTec EC-60 should be stored at temperatures above 40°F (4.5°C). Never allow to freeze.


We recommend the following range of dosage: 8 to 18 US fl. oz. per 100 lb of cement for concrete paving stones and concrete roof tile. For SRW units and other architectural block higher dosage rates may be recommended. Never mix EC-60 with other admixtures before application. Consult your ICT representative to help you determine the proper dosage rate and order of addition for your particular process.
