PRECISION BLENDED COLLOIDAL SILICATE SOLUTIONS
MIDCAL INTERNATIONAL LLC offers cutting edge technology in the use and application of our SiO2 nanotechnology concrete performance products. For over 20 years we have lead the way with our proprietary colloidal silicate Addmixture HYDRAMIX, and deep integral sealers and surface protection products.
Over 20 years HYDRAMIX has lead the way with concrete placement in the harshest of environments. From deserts of heat and wind, to freezing temperatures with freeze/thaw cycles, concrete professionals immediately see and feel the difference from the very start of placement to the very end of the placement.
Concrete disciplines that benefit with HYDRAMIX are: slab on grade, color concrete, texture finishes, tilt-up, pumped concrete, precast, swimming pool shells, all pool finishes, pool decks and rock work, grout, mortar, and plaster.
With tens of thousands of yards of concrete placement, grey and color, in the harsh environments of dessert heat and cold winter freeze/thaw cycles, HYDRAMIX has lead the way for no blanket concrete and no call back concrete placement.
We call it, “No worry Concrete”, “No Call back Concrete”, “Cold Weather Concreting”, “No Blanket Concrete”. But, you’ll call it your own!
Contact us and we can help to develop a mix design with HYDRAMIX for these same results that you can call your own.
DEEP INTEGRAL SEALER
DIS is considered to be the best curing method on the market today. When DIS is applied to concrete, it will penetrate deeply through the porosity and capillary system which formed as the water left at placement. DIS reacts with the concrete’s unbound free constituents, such as unused calcium hydroxide residue and alkali. This reaction converts DIS, which is virtually zero in solids, to a 100% solids colloidal silicate precipitate (gel) that is internally generated and insoluble. This insoluble gel that the DIS forms becomes a very unique colloidal barrier that will halt, or minimize some of concrete’s challenges like ASR, excessive water migration, topical coating and flooring damage, and acid / chemical damage. DIS is very versatile, it addresses efflorescence, hardens the surface, and water proofs concrete and swimming pool shells.
SURFACE PROTECTION TREATMENT
SPT is primarily used as a surface treatment in applications that utilize its ability to impart a water repellent surface, and to reduce water absorption. SPT is an aqueous penetrating treatment that provides a tough breathable filmless and U/V protective barrier beneath and on the surface that will prevent liquid contaminant penetration. SPT improves surface traction and general esthetic appearance. SPT eliminates or greatly reduces efflorescence, while aiding in additional crack, crazing and spalling resistance. SPT is ordorless, not-toxic, non-flammable and VOC/VOS free.
FOR SUMMER HEAT & WINTER FREEZE CHALLENGES, WE HAVE THE ANSWERS!
Higher quality stamping properties.
Better power trowel results.
Higher density polished concrete floor.
Integral color enhancement.
With the use of HYDRAMIX and DIS, most of the concrete and pool finish challenges can be controlled or eliminated. If you’re a pool contractor, finishing contractor, or pool finish manufacturer, we have the program to add to your success.
HYDRAMIX for SHELLS: better compacting, less rebound, less cracking and more water proof
DIS for Shells: increased density, strength and water proofing
HYDRAMIX for ALL pool finishes: better placement, pumping, less crazing, less alkali leaching
HYDRAMIX: Higher amount of QUALITY cream to work with. Finishers love it

Hydramix is a REVOLUTIONARY Concrete Mix Design product that has no equal in today’s concrete manufacturing.
Concrete professionals immediately see the difference Hydramix makes to the concrete. Hydramix creates a more homogenous mix, meaning the concrete is consistent from the start of the placement to the end of the placement. Hydramix doesn’t allow separation of the mix, like normal barches tend to do. The finishers enjoy Hydramix concrete because the workability is dramatically increased and, when properly mixed, there’s no bleed water, or water of convenience to wait for. Finish time is reduced as much as 25%. And that means labor savings and better project time management.
