  7. 7. 7Brickwork & Accessories Masonry Support In design situations when a masonry support angle is required there are three principle systems to choose from: AnconOptima, MDC or CFA. Through our on site design evaluation with your project manager and negotiations with your procurement and design teams, we can ascertain which system is appropriate in each instance. Project Management Service SIG Construction Accessories is the primary driver of information flow throughout the design process of masonry support systems. All aspects of the approval and manufacturing process are co-ordinated through a dedicated account manager, who will ensure the proposed designs are signed off for manufacture and delivered to your construction schedule. Detailed cross section and layout drawings are supplied for the bespoke support system required. This will show the location of the fixings, whether it is bolt positioning for cast-in channels for concrete frames or bolt positioning for steel frames. Bracket angle units are cross referenced clearly against grid lines for easy installation on site. Details for Specification and Ordering The principal information needed to start an enquiry is: • What is the cavity size? • What is the masonry load to be carried? • What is the support system being fixed back to?
  8. 8. 8 Brickwork & Accessories Specification / Referencing Ancon masonry support follows an easy to use referencing system to aid installation on site. The reference always follows the same structure: System / type / cavity / masonry load / projection where: MDC = Welded Bracket / Angle. MDC/R = Welded Bracket / Angle with reversed angle. MDC/I = Welded Bracket / Angle inverted angle system. CFA = Cold Formed Angle standard system. CFA/I = Cold Formed Angle Inverted system. P = Projection. Examples: MDC / R / 75 / 5.6 Welded Bracket system with a reversed angle to suit a 75mm cavity and to carry 5.6kN/metre run of masonry. CFA / I / 50 / 6.0 Continuous / Cold Formed Angle system with an inverted angle to suit a 50mm cavity and to carry 6.0kN/m run of masonry. Adjustment Cast-in channel will provide virtually unlimited horizontal adjustment; slotted holes in a steel edge member will offer more limited adjustment. The ability of welded bracket support systems to accommodate variations in the line of the structure is limited by the maximum thickness of shims. Shims can be included between the bracket and the frame up to a maximum thickness of the outside diameter of the fixing bolt, or 16mm, whichever is less. Vertical adjustment is provided by the deep slot in the back of the bracket. Bi-metallic Corrosion Corrosion of a steel frame may be slightly increased where there is direct contact with stainless steel in a damp environment. This can be avoided by isolating the two dissimilar metals by painting the contact area or by incorporating a separating membrane.
  9. 9. 9Brickwork & Accessories AnconOptima Standard Support Systems Available from stock The Industry’s growing emphasis on speed of construction, and the limited ability of welded bracket support systems to provide adjustment on site, has created a demand for an off­the- shelf support system. AnconOptima consists of short two-step angles, interchangable brackets and locking wedges. Benefits of AnconOptima • More adjustable than welded bracket systems allowing for variations in the structural frame • Specified by using simple load / cavity charts • No requirement for detailed layout drawings, reducing design time • Non-project specific and supplied from stock • Faster and easier to install - reduces labour requirements for installation Adjustment Brackets are changed on site to allow for variations in the edge beam and are available to suit cavities from 60mm to 150mm in 5mm increments. Shims can be used for fine adjustments and should never need to be more than 4mm thick. The AnconOptima System features a fixing zone providing a total of 50mm horizontal adjustment. If the system is to be fixed using expansion bolts, the brackets can be moved to eliminate clashes between the bolts and reinforcing bar. This also allows the system to be fixed to pre-drilled holes rather than slots in steelwork. Vertical adjustment is achieved in the usual way by the deep slot in the back of the bracket. Horizontal adjustment can be increased by fixing the system to an Ancon channel cast into the face of the concrete. Cutting On Site AnconOptima is not designed for specific buildings and certain angles will need to be cut on site to suit the length required. Each angle section must have at least two brackets. Corners Standard left-hand and right-hand corners are available. Each corner section requires three brackets in order to achieve the required performance. These sections should never be cut. Installation A detailed installation guide is enclosed with each delivery. Additional copies are available on request.

  11. 11. 11Brickwork & Accessories Ancon MDC Bracket Angle Support System This bespoke system can carry over eight metres of brickwork and can accommodate any width of cavity from 40mm. The brackets are welded to the angle and the material content of both components is optimised to ensure an economic solution. The Ancon MDC system can be supplied in a variety of configurations to suit particular applications and support special masonry features. The size of the support angle can be varied to suit the thickness and height of the masonry to be carried. Bracket spacing, depth and height are all varied to suit loadings, fixing position and cavity width. Adjustment Limited adjustment is provided in every direction to allow for tolerance in the structural frame. The serrated and slotted face of the bracket allows for vertical adjustment. Shims allow adjustment to suit variation in the structural frame. Longitudinal adjustment is provided by a cast-in channel in concrete or slots in steelwork.
  12. 12. 12 Brickwork & Accessories CFA Continuous Angle Support System Continuous angles are usually suitable for applications where cavities are small, or there is a requirement for the cavity to be closed at the support position. The angles will normally be supplied in lengths of up to four metres. Adjustment Adjustment is provided in every direction to allow for tolerance in the structural frame. Vertical slots in the angle with serrated pads allow ±25mm adjustment. Horizontal adjustment is virtually unlimited when fixing to a continuous cast-in channel and will depend on the length of the slotted holes in the edge member when fixing to steel. Slotted holes (18 x 60mm) in the angle allow horizontal adjustment of ±22mm. Shims can be included between the bracket and the frame, up to a maximum thickness of the outside diameter of the fixing bolt, or 16mm, whichever is less. Thermal Breaks Masonry support systems from Ancon can be supplied with Thermal Breaks* to minimise cold bridging, and improve the energy efficiency of your building project. Ancon Thermal breaks work by inserting a material with a lower thermal conductivity between the brackets and the frame. Shaped like a standard Ancon key-hole shim, these Thermal Breaks are manufactured from a durable fibre-reinforced thermoset plastic, which has a thermal conductivity of just 0.3W/mK. This product is suitable for standard AnconOptima support brackets and most Ancon MDC-type brackets. *Ancon Thermal Break, ref. BK03
  13. 13. 13Brickwork & Accessories Cast-in Channels Cast-in Channels range from simple self-anchoring slots for accepting restraint fixings to large capacity channels with integral anchors. They provide the necessary adjustment required when fixing to concrete and can eliminate site drilling. Nail holes aid the fixing of channels to timber formwork and an infill prevents the ingress of concrete during casting. Cast-in fixings do not generate expansive forces in the concrete and can be used at close centres and closer to the edges than expansion fixings. There are many cast-in channel profiles, the most commonly used are 21/18 and 30/20. Omega 21/18 The Omega 21/18 Channel is a self-anchoring channel for use with Ancon wall ties referenced SP21, SD21 or PP21. The shallow depth of 18mm allows the channel to be used where there is reduced cover to the reinforcement. Nail holes aid the fixing of the channel to timber formwork. 30/20 Ancon 30/20 is a high performance channel and should be used in preference to 38/17. Its unique shape allows the applied load to be fed directly from the channel lips to the anchors and the more compact section size improves its fit between reinforcement. In addition, its lower material content provides cost benefits. Specially designed T-head bolts ride up the sloping sides of the channel and securely lock behind the front lips. This channel also accepts standard 20mm wide wall ties.
  14. 14. 14 Brickwork & Accessories Fixing to Channels This is achieved by ‘T’ head bolts. These are inserted into the channel and turned through 90°. The bolt must then be tightened to the correct torque. Tapped plate washers can be used as an alternative to ‘T’ bolts where non- standard bolt lengths or diameters are required. Allowable Channel Loads The allowable load data is available upon request. Channel Infill All Ancon channels are supplied filled to help stop the ingress of concrete during casting. This material is removed easily in long sections. Installation Guidance When fixing to timber formwork, all nail holes need to be utilised, to prevent excessive ingress of concrete fines between the formwork and the channel during casting. Nails with a plain shank should be installed perpendicular to the channel to ensure easy removal of the formwork. Masonry Support Fixings Design Considerations There are several factors which will affect the performance of these fixings. The following areas should be considered to ensure that the expected performance is achieved: • Embedment • Edge distances and spacings • Fixing thicknesses and shims • Combined loads Types of Suitable Fixings: • Single Expansion Bolts (Concrete) • High Performance Bolts (Concrete) • Ancon Steel Grip (Steel Box Section) • Resin Anchors (Concrete) We can select the most appropriate fixing for your masonry support application. High performance bolt Capsule anchors Steelgrip Patent no.2410307
  15. 15. 15Brickwork & Accessories Lintels Lintels span across openings (typically doors and windows) and transfer the weight of the masonry above the opening to the masonry each side. The horizontal leg of the lintel fits within a bed joint, the front edge is usually turned down to provide a drip edge which helps shed moisture above the opening. Lintels usually support both leaves of masonry, but single leaf lintels are also available. A complete range of galvanised and stainless steel lintels are available to suit all domestic and commercial applications. The Housing and Unilintel ranges are designed to suit the loading conditions found in the majority of residential and commercial buildings. The standard range consists of: • Housing Lintels • Unilintels • Channel Lintels • Solid Wall Lintels • Single Leaf Lintels • Timber Frame Lintels • Box Lintels Custom Lintels In order to meet the requirements of today’s challenging industry, SIG Construction Accessories can source the design and manufacture of both special stainless steel and galvanised steel lintels for application where standard lintels are unsuitable. Solutions can be supplied for complex features such as corbels and other architectural details. Special cranked, bay, corner and cantilevered corners are available in addition to the following arch shapes: • Segmental arch • Semi-circular arch • Apex arch • Gothic arch • Flat top arch • Double arch • Arched on plan The following information will aid the design of a custom lintel and if available should be supplied with your enquiry: • Wall construction: outer leaf, inner leaf and cavity size. • Clear span of opening • Bearings available (if less than 225mm) • Radius or rise of arch and angles for apex/ cranked and corner lintels
  16. 16. 16 Brickwork & Accessories Windposts Large panels of masonry or panels with openings can often be difficult to justify structurally. The traditional solutions have been to either increase the thickness of the wall or introduce an additional column. Windposts fit within the wall allowing the existing thickness to be maintained. Both stainless steel and mild steel/ coated windposts can be supplied. Ancon WP1 and WP3 Windposts These are channel section windposts which are designed to be installed within the cavity leaving the blockwork undisturbed. The windposts are complete with end connections and ties which fit into the vertical slots in the flanges of the channel section. Ancon WP2 Windposts WP2 Windposts are angle section windposts designed for either small cavities or where wind loads are high. One leg of the angle windpost is built into the blockwork, and the blockwork is tied through the leg of the windpost to minimise any possible movement or cracking of internal finishes. If a vertical movement joint is required in place of a tied joint, debonded ties can be supplied. WP2 Typical examples of windpost applications WP1 WP3
  17. 17. 17Brickwork & Accessories Ancon WP4 Windposts These are generally used in internal blockwork walls that have a ‘fair faced’ finish to both sides and where the windposts cannot protrude beyond either face. Sometimes referred to as ‘spine’ posts they are flat plates designed to fit within the wall. Although the depth of a WP4 post is limited by the width of the masonry (ideally 20mm less than the wall width) the thickness of the post can vary to increase its load capacity. Blockwork is tied through the post. Debonded ties can be used if the post is positioned at a movement joint. Windpost Design Windposts are designed and manufactured to suit each individual project. Sufficient time should be allowed for the design, approval and manufacturing process when placing orders. Ancon Windposts are designed to span vertically between floors to provide lateral support for panels of brickwork. The windposts will usually be restrained by the brickwork and designed as ‘simply supported beams’. Deflection under wind load will often limit the maximum loading. Windposts can be designed as ‘propped cantilevers’ to limit deflection, this however will require a much larger base connection which in many cases may be difficult to accommodate. Connections to the frame are designed to permit adjustment during installation. Serrated surfaces will be provided where adjustment is in the direction of the load. The top connection allows for shrinkage or vertical movement of the frame to take place. The type of fixing will depend on the nature of the frame. Expansion bolts are normally supplied for concrete frames and set screws will be supplied for steel frames. Typical fixing details are shown overleaf, although others are available.
  18. 18. 18 Brickwork & Accessories Parapet and Spandrel Posts Ancon Parapet and Spandrel Posts are restrained by the brickwork and designed as ‘cantilevers’. The base connection will need to be sufficient to resist the ‘bending moment’ and may in some cases be difficult to accommodate within the floor construction. The height of these posts is unlikely to be more than 1.6 metres.

These can be supplied with a range of coatings to suit the application, such as galvanised red oxide paint or just in plain mild steel. Both SHS and RHS posts can be supplied.
  19. 19. 19Brickwork & Accessories Windpost Ties A range of ties are available to suit Ancon Windposts. SDN SDN Ties (with drip) are used to the outer leaf. SPN SPN Ties to the inner leaf. SNS SNS Ties are used across the posts in the inner blockwork and can be supplied with a debonding sleeve for use where there is a vertical movement joint.

  26. 26. 26 Brickwork & Accessories Ancon AMR Reinforcement Ancon AMR is a steel reinforcement, designed to be located in the horizontal bed joint to strengthen masonry panels. The longitudinal steel wires are flattened to ensure good cover is maintained even lapped or used with wall ties. Depth and Length The main longitudinal wires are flattened to less than 3mm. Ancon AMR is manufactured in standard lengths of 2700mm. The longitudinal wires have a minimum characteristic yield strength of 500N/mm2 . Materials Ancon AMR is available in Austenitic stainless steel (ref. S) and galvanised steel (ref. G). Stainless steel provides the greatest corrosion resistance and life-cycle costing benefits, and is suitable for use in any application. Galvanised steel is not suitable for use in the external leaf of a cavity wall. Wire Diameters The Ancon AMR is manufactured from five wire sizes which, after flattening, have an equivalent wire diameter of 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5 and 5mm. Widths Available in four standard widths (60, 100, 150, 175mm), the Ancon AMR can be used in wall widths from 100mm to 215mm.

  28. 28. 28 Brickwork & Accessories Ancon AMR - X Reinforcement Ancon AMR – X is based on the existing Ancon AMR masonry reinforcement, but with shaped rather than straight cross wires. This innovative design is a simple, cost effective way to correct poor site practice. If applied to dry bricks or blocks, only the modified cross wires are in contact with the masonry; the longitudinal wires are elevated. When the next masonry unit is lowered, the mortar layer disperses around the steel, leaving the reinforcement fully surrounded. The depth and length of the Ancon AMR – X is the same as the Ancon AMR reinforcement. Ancon AMR –X is manufactured from stainless steel wire and is therefore suitable for use in internal and external wall panels. The longitudinal wires are manufactured in two sizes which, after flattening, have an equivalent wire diameter of 3mm and 5mm. Available in two standard widths (60mm, 100mm), Ancon AMR-X can be used in masonry units from 100 to 150mm wide.

  30. 30. 30 Brickwork & Accessories Ancon Wall Ties The selection and spacing of wall ties depend on many factors. These include the type of brick/block to be tied, cavity width, type and height of building, location and design life. Map One Wind speed information taken from BS EN 1991-1-4: 2005 for use with PD 6697: 2010. Map Two Wind speed information taken from BS 6399-2: 1997 Code of Practice for Wind Loads for use with BS 5268-6.1: 1996. Density and Positioning of Ties For walls in which both leaves are 90mm or thicker, ties should be used at not less than 2.5 per square metre (900mm horizontal x 450mm vertical centres). Ties should be evenly distributed over the wall area, except around openings, and should preferably be staggered. Length of Tie and Embedment Wall ties should be of the correct length to ensure they are properly embedded in the masonry. The tie should have a minimum embedment of 50mm in each leaf but also take site tolerances into account for both cavity width and centring of the tie. For this reason we suggest tie lengths which achieve an embedment of between 62.5mm and 75mm. Recommended lengths to suit various cavity widths are shown for masonry-to-masonry wall ties.

  35. 35. 35Brickwork & Accessories Debonding Sleeves Debonding sleeves are used on plain-ended wall ties at vertical movement joints. The tie will restrain the masonry against lateral wind loads but the sleeve will allow the masonry to expand or contract. A 120mm long sleeve will provide an allowance for movement and tolerance, and will be suitable for most applications. Other lengths and sizes available to special order. Length: 120mm. Insulation Retaining Clips The red Insulation Retaining Clip will fit all standard stainless steel wall ties. Size: 80mm Diameter. Pack Sizes: Bags of 20 or 250. Black Teplo Clip The black Teplo-Clip should be used with the TeploTie range. Hammer Screws Hammer Screws are available for fixing into concrete. Sizes: 6 x 40mm, 8 x 60mm.
  36. 36. 36 Brickwork & Accessories Tek Screws Tek Screws are available for fixing into steel up to 12mm thick. Size: 5.5 x 38mm. Two-Part Tie Cavities exceeding 150mm are sometimes required. This necessitates longer ties which can be difficult to balance and keep horizontal when built into the inner leaf. The Ancon Two-Part Tie has one section built into the blockwork; the other section is then fixed as the outer leaf is built. The inner tie is manufactured in a standard length of 170mm. Variation in the cavity width is accommodated by the length of the outer tie. Insulation Retaining Clips can be supplied to fit the inner section. Ancon Two-Part Ties sustain loads which exceed the requirements for a Type 2 tie to PD6697 for cavities up to 300mm. An embedment of 75mm is required at each end. Fastrack Channel Building one leaf of the cavity wall in advance of the other is often beneficial but can create problems with coursing. Buildings which incorporate imperial or continental bricks and standard metric blocks present even greater difficulties. Ancon Fastrack Channel is built into the inner leaf of blockwork ready to take an Ancon SD28 or similar tie for the outer leaf. This method of construction avoids the dangers of projecting ties (Tie lengths = open cavity + 50mm). Ancon Fastrack Channels and Ties can be supplied in different lengths and can also be used for tying stonework to blockwork if DD28 or similar Ancon Ties are used. Ancon Fastrack Channels and Ties sustain loads which exceed the requirements for a Type 2 tie to PD6697. This system can also be manufactured in a 36/8 channel profile that accepts wall ties referenced SP36 or SD36.
  37. 37. 37Brickwork & Accessories Non-Drill Fixings Ancon’s range of ‘Non-Drill’ masonry to steel fixing solutions was developed to address the safety concerns of the Industry. Driven by customer demand for masonry restraint fixings with an alternate installation method from that of either shot-firing or drilling, Ancon engineered the innovative solutions that are detailed here. These fixings do not require the use of power tools and can reduce installation times and costs. In all instances they simply abut the column or attach to the flange to restrain the wall against lateral wind loads. Eliminate the dangers associated with shot- firing and drilling: • Quick, simple and economical to install • No power tools required • No special skills or equipment required • Fixings either abut the column or attach to the flange

  39. 39. 39Brickwork & Accessories Column Tie The Column Tie clamps to the flange of a column. It accommodates a steel thickness from 6mm to 25mm and should be installed at 225mm vertical centres. Manufactured in lengths to suit the application, it can feature a drip for use across the cavity or a plain shank for installation back into the inner leaf. Remedial Wall Ties Corrosion of Cavity Wall Ties Wall ties are an essential element in the stability of masonry panels. Prior to 1978, wall ties were usually manufactured from galvanized mild steel. These ties were expected to last the lifetime of the building, but for many years it has been recognised that some of these wall ties have corroded after only 15 or 20 years. Type Description Ancon MM63 Mechanical / Mechanical Used when tying together two leaves of solid materials, this tie has mechanical expanders at each end. Requires 10mm holes. Ancon RM63 Resin / Mechanical For use when the material in the inner leaf is perforated, of low­density or afriable material.A resin fixing may be used to eliminate any imposed stress.

  47. 47. 47Brickwork & Accessories Head Restraints Head Restraints provide the necessary restraint to the top of masonry walls. They allow for vertical movement to accommodate shrinkage or thermal movement of the wall or structural frame, whilst restraining wind loads. Ancon IHR - Internal Head Restraint The Ancon IHR is used for restraining the top of internal walls or the top of the inner leaf of a cavity wall. The opening at the front of the channel stem is sealed to prevent mortar ingress and to ensure that vertical movement can take place between the blockwork and the structure. The base of the stem must be built within a bed joint with the centre of the stem no closer than 50mm from the edge of the block. The vertical joint should be filled with mortar each side of the stem. The maximum joint between the top of the blockwork and the underside of the frame is not normally greater than 25mm. The sliding tie can be provided with either a hole (IHR - B) or slot (IHR - V) to suit MS bolts, with a notch end to fix directly into a 38/17 or 30/20 cast­-in channel (IHR - C) and with a notch end to suit the Hammer-On Section that attaches to a steel flange without site drilling (IHR - H). The standard Ancon IHR will suit a 215mm high block and can resist a load of 1.5kN*. Other sizes between 150 - 250mm are available. *The IHR-H can resist a load of 1kN. When fixed at 450mm centres staggered each side of the lower beam flange (effective centres 900mm on each side) the service load will be 1.1kN per metre in either direction.

  50. 50. 50 Brickwork & Accessories Restraint Straps/Multiholed Fixings Straps HES/LES Heavy/Light Engineered Restraint Straps A direct replacement for traditional 2.5mm and 5mm thick restraint straps, the innovative design of these new lightweight straps allows ease of handling and installation whilst maintaining the structural strength and robustness of much heavier weight types. The HES (heavy engineered strap) & LES (light engineered strap) replace traditional heavy and light restraint straps in roof and floor construction. Reducing the thickness to 1.5mm allows the HES strap to span over the top of floor joists and the bottom chords of trusses without the need for notching. HES straps are less than 40% of the weight, quicker to fit, and overcome many fixing problems associated with traditional heavy straps. The LES is designed for vertical applications e.g. holding down wall plates. • CE Marked • 1.5mm thick • Complies with the BS EN 845 • LABC Registered Solution • Material: 1.5mm galvanised mild steel • Various sizes available • Performance data available upon request Type Dimension Declared Load L1 L2 LES06B10 500mm 100 4 kN LES08B10 700mm 100 4 kN LES10B10 900mm 100 4 kN LES12B10 1100mm 100 4 kN HES06B10 500mm 100 8 kN HES08B10 700mm 100 8 kN HES10B10 900mm 100 8 kN HES12B10 1100mm 100 8 kN HES15B10 1400mm 100 8 kN

  79. 79. 79Brickwork & Accessories Abutment Trays Abutment trays are used to damp proof and flash where sloping roofs abut cavity walls. It is imperative that every stepped and staggered gable abutment is constructed to prevent rainwater and dampness from penetrating below the abutting roofline. The tray is available in both undressed and lead dressed form. The tray in the dressed form combines the functions of cavity DPC and roof lead flashing. These are manufactured with two choices of lead flashing lengths. Leaded Cavity Trays Short Lead Flashings Suitable to dress over the upstand of a secret gutter or soaker.
  80. 80. 80 Brickwork & Accessories Long Lead Flashings Suitable to be dressed across the roof tile. In these circumstances, roof tiles must be suitably ‘shaped’ ie: not flat. At a later date when the roof surface is complete, the plumber has only to dress the flashings. Installation Tray installation is very straightforward and in a typical brickwork application the bricklayer lays one tray in every course, following the slope of the roof. All trays and the projecting lead flashing are flush-pointed as the masonry is raised. Thus the usual requirement to rake out joints and return to point-in flashings at a later date is eliminated. Tray Types There are 4 main types of abutment trays: Ridge Tray This unit straddles the ridge. It has open ends and thus allows water to discharge to the left or right. Intermediate Tray Tray is supplied handed and built-in each course up the rake of the roof. Each tray has an end upstand, thus water can only discharge via the open end into the tray below. Catchment Tray This is similar to an intermediate tray, but it has upstands to both ends. Its function is to receive water from the intermediate trays above and to discharge this water through a weep vent. Internal/External Angles An angle tray is used instead of a catchment tray if the abutment ends or returns on a corner. An angle may also provide a link with horizontal trays.

Sizes: 5 Litres, 25 Litres Concrete Remover Cure Chemicals Concrete Remover is designed exclusively to clean concrete construction equipment and does not contain any Muriatic, Phosphoric or Citric acids and is therefore non-corrosive. It is safe to use on painted surfaces, aluminium, glass and rubber. It is safe for both human handling and for the environment. Cure Chemicals Concrete Remover is biologically degradable and can be discarded in the normal sewage system (EAK 17 09 04). How it works: Cure Chemicals Concrete Remover contains active substances that break down the molecules that bind the cement together with sand and water. Cure Chemicals Concrete Remover is mixed with water to the desired strength and applied as a foam to the item concerned, using for example, a handheld foamer. The foam should be left to act on the concrete for 20-45 minutes. Then clean off the item thoroughly with a high-pressure cleaner or with water and a stiff brush. In cases where there is heavy buildup, the treatment can be repeated. Since the product is not harmful to the environment, it can be drained directly into the public sewer system (EWC 17 09 04). Collectively these extra benefits make for optimum utilisation of time and equipment. It is financially sound, saving you money as well as preserving your equipment and extending its life. You can use Cure Chemicals Concrete Remover on hand tools, mixers, scaffolding and aluminium sections. Sizes: 5 Litres, 20 Litres
