Slurry Additives

Slurry additives are beneficial additions to a slurry to maintain slurry life and performance. Understanding what slurry additives do, when to use them and how to use them properly is imperative to appropriately maintain slurry life and performance.

R&R offers antifoam, wetting agents, bactericide and drying indicator.


antifoam

DCH-10 Antifoam

redip

ReDip™ Indicator
REDIP indicator takes the guesswork out of shell drying. For use with water based binders, the color indicator prevents loss due to sloughing of undried coats, reduces time spent overdrying shells and allows the caster to produce stronger shells by ensuring that each coat is fully dried before applying an additional coat.
