Tuff Mix®

Tuff Mix®


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.

Tuff Mix® 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.
