SikaSet® HE is an accelerating admixture that enhances the early strength of concrete. SikaSet® HE contains Calcium Chloride. SikaSet® HE meets the requirements of ASTM C-494 Types C and E admixtures.
Accelerated Set Times and Strength Development: SikaSet® HE may be used to accelerate set times and increase early strength gain where job-site efficiency is important in order to meet construction deadlines. SikaSet® HE saves time and money by allowing faster finishing and stripping of concrete formwork.
- Insulation and heating costs during curing time are reduced.
- Accelerated set times allow crews to finish concrete earlier, saving on labor costs.
- Earlier stripping and reuse of forms increases labor productivity.
- Accelerated strength gain allows earlier structural use and speeds completion time.
Cold Weather Concreting: At the recommended dosage rate, SikaSet® HE will protect concrete from freezing in most sub-freezing temperature conditions and may reduce the need for cold weather concreting practices as specified in ACI 306 – Standard Specification for Cold Weather Concreting.
