Sikament® AFM


Sikament® AFM is a mid-range water reducing admixture utilizing Sika's ViscoCrete® polycarboxylate technology. Sikament® AFM 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 Sikament® AFM.    When used as a high range water reducing admixture, water reduction up to 25% can be obtained. The superplasticizing action of Sikament® AFM 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 dosage rates Sikament® AFM 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 Sikament® AFM 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 concrete.    Sikament® AFM does not contain intentionally added chlorides
