Product Description

TUFF-MIX: Scrap Your Steel. Not Your Slab

TUFF-MIX™ creates ultra-high durability concrete for heavy impact and abrasion applications such as scrap yard slabs. This mix includes the additive polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) that develops a molecular bond to the concrete, turning it into a composite that is more durable than plain, high-strength concrete. This added durability translates into a lower life-cycle cost and less maintenance. TUFF-MIX™ works because it slows down concrete damage by reducing the destruction caused by impact and abrasion. TUFF-MIX™ is available through our network of certified concrete suppliers.

ADVANTAGES OVER STANDARD CONCRETE *

  • 163% more compressive strength
  • 147% more impact resistance
  • 55% more abrasion resistance
  • 90% more resistant to plastic shrinkage cracking
*Data from ASTM laboratory testing results comparing TUFF-MIX enhanced concrete to regular concrete.

TUFF-MIX by Nycon can be added directly to the mixing system during or after the batching of the ingredients and mixed at high speed for a minimum of five minutes. Additional mixing does not adversely affect the distribution or overall performance of NYCON-PVA. The addition of NYCON-PVA at the normal or high dosage rate does not require any mix design or application changes. A water reducer or super-plasticizer is recommended in concrete products where improved workability and finishability are desired.
