Concrete Hiperplasticizers-Plastit® SPCA

Plastit SPCA is differentiated from conventional superplasticisers in that it is based on a unique carboxylic ether polymer with long lateral chains. This greatly improves cement dispersion. At the start of the mixing process electrocstatic dispersion occurs but the presence of the lateral chains, linked to the polymer backbone. Generate a steric hindrance which stabilizes the cement particle’s capacity to separate and disperse. This mechanism considerably reduces the water demand in flowable concrete. Plastit SPCA is a particularly strong hyperplasticiser allowing production of consistent concrete properties around the required dosage

Increased early compressive strengths
Increased flexural strength
 Improved adhesion to reinforcing and stressing steel
 Improved resistance to carbonation
 Lower permeability
 Increased resistance to aggressive atmospheric conditions
Reduced shrinkage and creep
 Increased durability

Plastit SPCA is a high performance hyperplasticiser intended for applications where increased early compressive strengths are required, and it has been developed for use in 
 Self compacting concrete
Concreting in cold weather
 Pumped concrete
 High performance concrete
Per-cast concrete

The optimum dosage Plastit SPCA to meet specific requirements should always be determined by trials using the materials and conditions that will be experienced in use. The normal dosage range is between 0.2 to 1.0 kg/100 kg of cementitious material
