Sika® ViscoCrete®-225 Powder
A third generation high range water reducing and superplasticizing powder admixture for use in concrete and mortar. It is based on Sika’s patented ‘ViscoCrete’ polycarboxylate polymer technology.
- Effective when utilized with cements that have high C3A, sulphate and alkali content.
- Effective when utilized with ordinary portland cements (OPC) and blends of OPC and aluminate cements.
- Compatible with other additives (i.e. citric acid).
- Extremely high water reduction (resulting in high density and strengths).
- Excellent flowability (resulting in greatly reduced placing and compacting efforts).
- Increased high early strength development.
- Improved shrinkage and creep behavior.
- Low absorption time, “wets out” faster then competitive materials.
- Medium retardation.
- Ideal for use in self-leveling, self-compacting applications.
