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.
