SikaMix® PL-100

Drycast Admixture

SikaMix® PL-100 is a blend of surfactants and water reducing polymers in an aqueous solution used in the manufacture of drycast concrete products. When added into the concrete mix it acts as a manufacturing aid to speed production and enhance product appearance and strength. SikaMix® PL-100 contains no calcium chloride or any other intentionally added chloride containing ingredients. It will not initiate or promote the corrosion of steel in contact with the concrete.

SikaMix® PL-100 is an integral concrete densifying admixture that acts as a cement dispersant and reduces the use of water. Some of its benefits are:
  • Machine productivity will be increased by more rapid filling of form and mold boxes.
  • The internal lubricating properties of SikaMix® PL-100 reduce the wear on machinery and extend machine life.
  • Provides a better form swipe on drycast products.
  • Lighter colors will maintain a more uniform, consistent shade and general product appearance will be improved.
  • Edges on pipe and block will be sharper, more defined and less likely to chip.
  • Improves early and final strength of concrete.
  • Improves compactability.
  • Reduces breakage and culls.
  • Extends life of molds and machine parts.
  • Enables the use of pozzolans as a cement replacement while providing similar strengths and workability.
  • Reduces the need for higher curing temperatures while maintaining early strengths.
   Compatibility with Cement and Admixtures: SikaMix® PL-100 is compatible with most admixtures manufactured to ASTM Specifications and most pozzolans.
