Please note:
This application is for guidance only. Working and curing times depend on temperature, mixing and humidity, whereby the direct ambient temperatures are important, e.g. of cement powder, mixing system, bench and hands. A high temperature accelerates the waiting, working and curing times.

The charts were generated under controlled laboratory conditions.

This app does not substitute the instructions for use.

Please use this app according to your guideline in the operation room.
