SikaSet® NC

Accelerating admixture

SikaSet® NC is a non-chloride, water reducing and accelerating admixture. SikaSet® NC meets the requirements of ASTM C-494 Types C and E admixtures.

Accelerated Set Times and Strength Development: SikaSet® NC 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® NC saves time and money by allowing faster finishing and stripping of concrete surfaces.
  • Accelerated setting time across a wide range of temperatures.
  • Increased early and ultimate compressive and flexural strengths.
  • 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® NC 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. SikaSet® NC does not contain calcium chloride or any other intentionally added chlorides and will not initiate or promote the corrosion of steel members present in the concrete.
