TytroniX™
Technology for Mortar Cement
Developed at Grace laboratories, TytroniX utilizes a new chemistry that results in a dramatic improvement in the performance of low air mortar cements. Interground during the cement manufacturing process, the use of TytroniX allows cement manufacturers to achieve the high flexural bond strength and low air levels consistent with the requirements of ASTM C 1329-96 Standard Specification for Mortar Cement. At the same time it imparts excellent workability to mortar cements and provides superior boardlife and water retention to the mortar.

Airalon®
Air-Entraining Additive For Masonry Cement
An aqueous solution of neutralized hydroaromatic and fatty carboxylic acids used in the manufacture of air entraining portland and masonry cements. It is interground during the manufacture of these cements. Airalon is specified as a reference additive under ASTM C 465 specification for air entraining additives. It is economical to use and offers proven performance.
Data Sheet

Hydrophobe®
Additive For Masonry Cement
A series of multipurpose additives interground during the manufacture of prepared masonry cement to entrain air, impart water repellency, control setting time, extend board life and improve workability. It eliminates the need to add separate materials to impart this combination of properties to masonry cements.
