Sika® ViscoCrete®-1000


Sika® ViscoCrete®-1000 is a high range water reducing admixture utilizing Sika's ViscoCrete® polycarboxylate technology. Sika® ViscoCrete®-1000 meets the requirements of ASTM C494/AASHTO M 194, Type A & F.

Various levels of water reduction can be achieved by adjusting the dosage rate of Sika® ViscoCrete®-1000.   
When used as a high range water reducing admixture, water reduction up to 30% can be obtained. The superplasticizing action of Sika® ViscoCrete®-1000 allows for the production of high slump/flow concrete with excellent workability that can typically be placed with minimal vibration even at a low water/cementitious ratio.    At lower dosages rates, Sika® ViscoCrete®-1000 is an effective normal water reducing or mid-range water reducing admixture. This application is ideal for use with lean, harsh concrete mixes or concrete containing supplementary cementitious materials.   The combined water reducing and superplasticizing action of Sika® ViscoCrete®-1000 provides the following benefits:   
▪ Reduced water cement ratios produce more durable,
dense concrete,
▪ Increased slump and workability improves efficiency
of labor and reduces labor costs,
▪ Improved finishing characteristics,
▪ Increased strengths allow faster structural use of
Sika® ViscoCrete®-1000 does not contain intentionally
added chlorides.
