Cancarb Shares Results of Concrete Water Immersion and Accelerated Weather Testing
September 28, 2023
Cancarb Limited has published a Technical Bulletin with the results of Concrete Water Immersion and Accelerated Weather Testing. The tests compared the use of Thermax® N990, a medium thermal carbon black, and CARBOCOLOR®, a concrete colorant, to black iron oxide in concrete. The Cancarb products provided superior tint strength and weather resistance.
Thermax® N990 and CARBOCOLOR®
Thermax® CARBOCOLOR® concrete colorant produces a dark gray color with blue undertones. Its large particle size and chemical inertness also provide significant resistance to long-term weathering and aging. In addition, CARBOCOLOR® withstands acids, alkalis, and heat.
