High Performance Super Plasticizer

ULTRACON-58P1

 

HIGH PERFORMANCE RETARDING SUPER PLASTICIZER

 

Ultracon-58P1 is specially formulated, super plasticizer and set retarding concrete admixture for producing flowing concrete in hot climates.

 

APPLICATIONS:-

 

  • In production of self – compaction, flow –able concrete at higher ambient temperature.
  • Where concrete pumping is desired.
  • Ready mix concrete.
  • Concrete to be transported over long distances.
  • For production of high strength, durable concrete for per –stressed concrete girders, foundations etc.

 

ADVANTAGES:-

 

  • Improves workability without increase in water or risk of segregation.
  • Excellent slump retention under adverse conditions.
  • Increases the ultimate strength of concrete.
  • Improves water tightness and durability of concrete.
  • Aids compaction and the production of fair – faced concrete.
  • Especially suitable for hot climate concreting.

 

DOSAGES:-

 

The dosage can vary between 0.4% to 1.5% by weight of cement depending upon properties desired i.e. 200 ml – 400 ml per bag of cement & for higher grade of concrete 500 – 750 ml  per bag of cement. It is advisable to evaluate Ultracon-58P1 dosage by field trials to establish the exact requirements.

 

DIRECTION OF USE:-

 

Ultracon-58P1 should be added to the concrete mix with mixing water directly into the mixer. Water reduction is higher if the Ultracon-58P1 is added to the concrete mix after 50% to 70% of the mixing water has been added further mixing should be carried out for about 2 minutes.

 

CAUTIONS:-

 

Do not add Ultracon-58P1 to dry cement.
