COSTARMIX 200 CAST
High Early Age Strength, Low Viscosity High-Performance water-reducing Super Plasticizer for Precast Concrete Industry.
Costarmix 200Cast is SNF based water reducing superplasticizer which has been specifically developed for the precast concrete industry coupling superior high range water reducing capabilities and excellent dispersion levels with robust performance. It is ideal for use in precast concrete where the desire to maximize the performance of the concrete in the plastic and hardened state is preeminent.
Advantages and features
- High early age strength development to improve productivity, earlier transfer of pre-stress and negates the requirement for accelerating admixtures during cold weather.
- Chloride free. Ideal for concrete containing embedded steel.
- Water reductions of up to 45%, promote higher early age strength and superior ultimate strength.
- Increased final strength facilitates earlier striking of formwork, liking of precast elements and further cement reductions.
- This enables the producer to increase efficiency and reduce overall energy input.
- Improved rheology of concrete provides a blemish-free surface finish which requires less remedial work (dressing).
- Compatible with all types of cement.
- Produces concrete with excellent durability, low permeability and improves resistance to sulphate attack.
