Concrete Retarder

Concrete Retarder


A high performance new generation super plasticizer cum retarding admixture which lowers the surface tension of water and makes cement particles hydrophilic, resulting in excellent dispersion as well as controls the setting of concrete, depending on dosage. This increases the workability of concrete drastically and also facilitates excellent retention of workability. The workability offered at a lower water cement ratio eliminates chances of bleeding and increased workability retention allows increased travel time..

  • Reduction in the water-cement ratio up to 20 – 25%.
  • Flowing, pumpable concrete.
  • Excellent workability.
  • High-quality concrete for improved durability reduces the heat of hydration even with very high strength cement.
  • Compatible with mineral admixtures..
  • ADHERE MIX-100 can be used with all types of portland cements including blended cement, and sulphate resisting cement. It is also compatible with mineral admixtures like fly ash, slag and silica fume. ADHERE MIX-100 should not be mixed with other admixtures.
  • Has excellent slump retention properties (based on dosage) and hence is a recommended admixture when concrete is to be transported over long distances.
  • Permits proper placement and finishing, overcoming the damaging and accelerating effects of high temperatures, because of its retarding effect.
  • ADHERE MIX-100 in designed proportion controls the setting of large structural units to keep concrete workable throughout the placing period. This eliminates cold joints and discontinuities.
  • Helps in the production of dense and impermeable concrete, thus making it an ideal choice for coastal structures.

Reduced water-cement ratio reduces capillary porosity and improves water tightness. Improved workability facilitates easy placing and good compaction, resulting in production of dense, impermeable concrete.

0.3% to 1.2% ADHERE MIX-100 by weight of cement. Maximum dosage can be increased depending on the required early strength, set retardation, and presence of mineral admixtures in the mix subject to corresponding modifications in the concrete mix.
