Superplasticisers are high performance liquids or powders designed to function as high range water reducers or superplasticisers and as such can be used to produce flowing or high strength concretes.
- Specified strengths can be achieved at high workabilities
- Water reductions in the region of 15-35% can be achieved, significantly improving strengths at all ages and enhancing durability through production of lower permeability concrete
- Faster placing with reduced labour and equipment costs
- Low permeable concrete leading to enhanced durability
Incorporating superplasticisers to increase the consistence to a high level can ensure that
