Encapsulated rosin

ELOTEX® ERA100 is a highly active, efflorescence-reducing additive in powder form based on natural resin technology. ELOTEX® ERA100 is efficient against primary efflorescence caused by the precipitation of water soluble salts on the surface of mineral binder. It acts as a multifunctional additive with several efflorescence-preventing mechanisms, which serve to reduce capillary connectivity and the size of efflorescence forming crystals. ELOTEX® ERA100 maintains the aesthetics of building materials over time. Besides its efflorescence-reducing effect, it shows excellent wetting and mixing properties, as well as improvements in colour stability and brightness. Furthermore, it improves mortar rheology and is also suitable for decreasing secondary efflorescence. ELOTEX® ERA100 is easy to dose with very low dust formation.
