Buddy Rhodes Mix Materials
Acrylic Fiber AC50

Acrylic Fiber AC50

Acrylic Fiber AC50 is a concrete additive that enhances the performance and durability of concrete, adding years to its useful life. This modified polymer fiber, made of staple fiber, reduces shrinkage cracks and provides reinforcement. Reduces permeability, increases impact and abrasion resistance, and improves tensile and flexural properties of concrete mixes.


Alkali Resistant (AR) Glass Fiber

Alkali Resistant (AR) Glass Fiber

Alkali Resistant (AR) Glass Fiber are designed specifically for use in concrete. Alkali Resistant (AR) Glass fibers are manufactured from a specially formulated glass composition with an optimum level of Zirconia (ZrO2) to be suitable for use in concrete.


Alkali Resistant Glass Scrim

Alkali Resistant Glass Scrim

Alkali Resistant Glass Scrim is an oriented fiber fabric. Scrims are particularly used in conjunction with fiber reinforced mixes to provide additional tensile strengths in locations that will experience point specific strain. When they are placed in the tensile regions of the product they can significantly increase the flexural strength of the composite.


Beeswax

Beeswax

Buddy Rhodes Beeswax helps resist stains and enhances the color of concrete surfaces. The wax acts as a barrier to protect the sealer from abrasion and wear. It may be used for maintenance over the life of the concrete project. This is hard wax ‘puck’ that is rubbed across the surface, and buffed by hand or mechanically.


Bone Paste Plus

Bone Paste Plus

Bone Paste Plus is a blend of cement, pozzolan, and polymer that is specially formulated for filling voids in artisan cast concrete. The paste doesn’t have any large particles, so it is soft and smooth, allowing it to easily fill holes and voids.


Craftsman Mix

Craftsman Mix

Buddy Rhodes Craftsman Mix is the enhanced version of Buddy's original concrete countertop mix. It is an artisan concrete blend designed to exhibit clay like properties in the wet state. The consistency of the mix lends itself for use with Buddy’s signature press technique, applying up vertical surfaces with minimal molding and simplicity of application. This mix is also ideal for troweling, and can be plasticized to create a pourable mix. 


Dry Pigment Colors

Dry Pigment Colors

Buddy Rhodes Signature Color Series is a series of ultrafine concrete pigments that are used integrally in concrete mixes in order to produce a wide color range. The standard color range is based on one pound (bag) of pigment per bag of any of the blended mixes, but you can double that dosage for richer colors, reduce the amount of pigment for lighter tones, or blend the colors for various hues. The pigment is also used in conjunction with the Bone Paste Plus paste for filling voids in your finished concrete piece.

ECC Admixture

ECC Admixture

The ECC Admixture is a polymer modified multi component admixture which provides strength, premium working characteristics, and durability for ECC mixes. This admixture can be added to other blended concrete mixes and from scratch formulas to increase strength and improve workability. The blend is a carefully proportioned mix of chemical and mineral admixtures to combat the inherent weaknesses in concrete.


ECC Blended Mix

ECC Blended Mix

This ECC Blended Mix is designed using the most advanced concrete mix design theory currently available. This mix is designed to produce tremendous ductility and tensile capacity, and is more likely to bend than break. These mix produces a very dense and strong concrete.  Boasting impressive strengths, the habits of workability with these mixes open up unique and interesting possibilities as well. 


GFRC Admixture

GFRC Admixture

GFRC Admixture is a polymer modified multi component admixture which provides strength and durability for GFRC mixes. This admixture can be added to other blended concrete mixes and from scratch formulas to increase strength and improve workability. The use of this admixture eliminates the need for curing polymers, pozzolans, defoamers, and shrinkage reducers


GFRC Blended Mix

GFRC Blended Mix

GFRC Blended Mix  is a carefully proportioned blend of cement, sand, pozzolans, curing polymer and performances additives designed to the highest performance standards. This mix can be used in a multitude of ways, serving as a base mix for infinite applications. The mix is ideal for spraying, fiber reinforced scc (self compacting/consolidating concrete), and with minimal modifications can be pressed, troweled, or converted into a high performance wet cast mix or terrazzo mix. When reinforced with fiber, this mix can be created with minimal thickness and high tensile strengths. This mix reaches impressive strengths in under 24 hours, allowing for rapid turn around when necessary. 


Mold Release

Mold Release

Mold Release Creates both a chemical and physical film between concrete and the mold, allowing for smooth release.


Penetrating Sealer

Penetrating Sealer

Buddy Rhodes Penetrating Sealer is an aqueous copolymer chemically reactive dispersion that provides a durable and transparent protective barrier against oil and water on concrete surfaces. This new chemistry offers invisible protection to both dense and porous concrete and is extremely effective as a water sealer. It is used as the primer as the first step in the Buddy Rhodes sealing system. This product is water based and food safe.

Coverage: One quart of Penetrating sealer will cover approximately 50 square feet. This may vary from application to application.


PVA Fiber RECS 100 - 1/2”

PVA Fiber RECS 100 - 1/2”

PVA Fiber RECS 100 (polyvinyl alcohol)  are high-performance reinforcement fibers for concrete and mortar. 


PVA Fiber RECS 15 - 3/8”

PVA Fiber RECS 15 - 3/8”

PVA Fiber RECS 15 (polyvinyl alcohol)  are high-performance reinforcement fibers for concrete and mortar. 


PVA Fiber RECS 7 - 1/4”

PVA Fiber RECS 7 - 1/4”

PVA Fiber RECS 7 (polyvinyl alcohol)  are high-performance reinforcement fibers for concrete and mortar. 


Satin Sealer

Satin Sealer

Buddy Rhodes Satin Sealer is the latest in water based acrylic micro emulsion technology for concrete countertops. It creates a barrier coating that seals and protects while enhancing the natural beauty of the concrete. The sealer will resist most stains up to 72 hours; however, oils and solvents should be wiped up promptly. This is the second step in the Buddy Rhodes sealing system. This product is water based and food safe.

Coverage: One quart of Satin Sealer will cover approximately 50 square feet. This may vary from application to application.


Water Reducer 205

Water Reducer 205

Water Reducer 205 is a powdered polycarboxylate based plasticizer and pozzolan blend. It is a dry white multi component material that can also replace pozzolan in certain mix designs.  Ideal for use in GFRC mist and backer coats, or as a water reducer in any concrete formulation. This unique blend offers both water reducing capability as well as pozzolanic benefits, improving the workability, strength and durability of concrete.


Water Reducer 310

Water Reducer 310

Water Reducer 310 is a unique and powerful powdered polycarboxylate plasticizer designed to significantly reduce water requirements. This is an incredibly potent plasticizer, and must be carefully managed to avoid segregation. This mix will make even the most stubborn mixes flowable. WR 310 has 10 times the potency of WR 205.


Water Reducer 420

Water Reducer 420

Water Reducer 420 is a liquid high range water reducer formulated specifically for concrete blends with high fines and cementitious content, and is suited for self-compacting concrete(SCC) mixes. Great to use for ‘trimming’ mixes to achieve the optimum workability.


Water Reducer ADVA 555

Water Reducer ADVA 555

Water Reducer ADVA 555 Water Reducer 555 (ADVA® Cast 555) is a high efficiency polycarboxylate based superplasticizer ideally suited for use when making Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC). ADVA Cast 555 has been formulated to impart maximum desired workability without segregation to concrete.
