ADDMIX 240

ADDMIX 240 is a high range water reducing,set retarding super plasticizer for rheoplastic concrete mixes.

Specification

ADDMIX 240 is composed of synthetic polymers specially designed to impart rheo-plastic qualities to concrete. A rheo-plastic concrete is a fluid concrete with a slump of at least 200 mm, easily flowing, but at the same time free from segregation and having the same water/cement ratio as that of a no-slump concrete (25 mm) with admixture.
