Admixtures & Bonding

  • Tenon® Set Retarder

    Tenon® Set Retarder is a ready-to-use liquid admixture that slows the rate of reaction for rapid setting concrete repair products, including:

    Tenon® Commercial DOT Repair
    Tenon® Rapid Patch 100
    Tenon® Rapid Patch 200
    Tenon® Rapid Patch® Vertical Repair CI
    Tenon® Rapid Strength Concrete Mix SE
    Tenon® Blend-Pro
    Rapid Patch® Multi-Purpose Repair
    Rapid Patch® Concrete Repair Mortar

    It is intended for use with these products in conditions where warm weather or other situations require extended working time for proper placement and finishing. It meets ASTM C494/C 494M requirements for Type B retarding admixtures. For use with all other mixes contact to connect with a technical representative.

  • Tenon® Air Entrainment

    Tenon® Air Entrainment (BOM #120377) is a ready-to-use, aqueous solution made of organic materials.  Air Entrainment entrains a small and stable amount of air into the desired mix. These small, stable air voids enhance the mixture and improve workability. Its chemical composition and physical properties make it ideal for many construction applications. It is intended for use when increased workability and freeze-thaw durability of concrete or mortar is preferred. This admixture also improves resistance to freeze/thaw, scaling, segregation, and bleeding and improves strength, plasticity, water retention, and cohesiveness of mortar. Meets ASTM C260 Standard Specification for Air-Entraining Admixtures for Concrete.

  • Tenon SuperFlow

    Tenon® SuperFlow

    Tenon® SuperFlow water-reducing admixture is a full range water reducing additive providing a more plastic and flowable concrete. It produces concrete mixes with different levels of workability to include self-consolidating concrete (SCC) applications. Tenon SuperFlow admixture meets ASTM C494-C 494M compliance requirements for Type A water-reducing and Type F high-range water-reducing admixtures.

  • Tenon® Fast-Set Liquid Activator

    Tenon® Fast-Set Liquid Activator is formulated specifically to be used in conjunction with Tenon® Air-Entrained Concrete Patching Mix AE in order to establish a quicker set and develop strength rapidly. When used with the patching mix, Fast-Set Liquid Activator reduces the closure time of high-traffic areas from 24 hours to 4-5 hours under normal conditions. Available in 1 gallon bottles (BOM #120593) and 5 gallon pails (BOM # 120770).

  • Tenon® Level-Flo® Primer Pro

    Tenon® Level-Flo Primer Pro (1 gal. BOM #129436, 5 gal. BOM #129438) is a high quality, acrylic latex based primer used with Tenon® Level-Flo self-leveling products. Level-Flo Primer Pro is applied to porous and nonporous surfaces as a substrate primer to promote bonding. This primer can also be used with other cement-based Tenon concrete repair, surface preparation, and polymer-modified thin set mortars to enhance bonding to difficult substrates such as glazed ceramic tile, terrazzo, gypsum based underlayments, concrete treated with certain types of curing compounds (acrylic resin or silicate curing compounds only), well bonded epoxy coatings, and cold rolled steel. Tenon Level-Flo Primer or Primer Pro are required to be applied to all substrates before placing Tenon® Level-Flo Underlayments or Wear-Toppings.

  • Tenon® Mighty Bond

    Tenon® Mighty Bond™ is a high-solids, acrylic, liquid bonding agent that substantially improves adhesion, impact, and shear bond, tensile, and flexural and compressive strength of unmodified concrete, mortars, patches and grouts. Additionally, Mighty Bond adds excellent freeze/thaw and salt resistance and creates more durable cement-based materials. Minimal preparation is required. Available in 1 gal. bottles (BOM #120525), 5 gal. pails (BOM #120526) and 55 gal. drums (BOM #130020).

  • Tenon® Set Accelerator

    Tenon® Set Accelerator (BOM #120376) is an ASTM C494, Type C, non-chloride, non-corrosive, liquid that improves workability and initial strength while it reduces the hydration time of cement.  The product is recommended for use during cooler weather to accelerate set time and reduce the risk of frozen mortar and concrete mixes. It is also recommended for use when early strength gain is desired to speed up projects. Tenon Set Accelerator provides a reduced curing time, faster set time and increased early strength. The product speeds finishing operations in any weather condition without any corrosive effects.
