Acti-PlexTM is a Pool Plaster Additive used to increase the lifetime of pool plaster and allow for easy plaster repairs. Acti-Plex particles have a unique lattice architecture which reduces settling and sagging, yet allows flow without retarding or accelerating cure. Acti-Plex provides good handling with no tears, air bubbles or shrinkage, while it increases strength, improves workability and clings well to vertical surfaces. Acti-Plex multi-functional admixture is meeting the needs of pool plasters. It makes the plastering job easier and provides a better finished plaster every time.
Acti-Plex adds more benefits to pool plasters than any other additive and, unlike all others, it has no negative attributes. It provides a benefit to every step of the plastering job, from start to finish. Acti-Plex’s main benefits are extended workability, more uniform color dispersion, excellent vertical surface cling, better exposure and reduced cracking. Acti-Plex makes the plaster easier to apply even when it begins to become firm during curing. It also creates a uniform, smaller pore structure.
Many plasters are color pigmented. Acti-Plex disperses the pigments better making color development more uniform giving the plaster a much better look and finish — a key point of satisfaction with the home owner. It makes plastering corner and steps much easier. Exposure and acid washing are critical steps in making the more profitable, luxurious pebble and quartz plaster finishes. The next day the plaster is acid washed and Acti-Plex has proven to make this task easier and leave a better, cleaner finish while reducing the use of acid (saves money). All these benefits and more make the plastering job easier while the improved quality of the finished plaster prevents costly call backs for the contractors.
