Pozzolanic Products-Capcogel®

Capcogel admixture improves the rheological properties of concrete. It is based on a highly pozzolanic mineral admixture to produce extremely strong, durable concrete. These include silica fume and Super plasticizer. This product is offered in two different types. These include: Capcogel S: based on sulphonated napthalene superplasticizer Capcogel D: based on polycarboxylate superplasticizer

 Increased concrete service life
 Increased strength
Increased modulus of elasticity
Reduced permeability thereby increasing durability
 Increased resistance to sulfate attack
 Increased resistance to alkali
silica reactivity

 Any construction project requiring the protection provided by highly durable, low permeability concrete
 Projects requiring high
strength/high
performance concrete
 Steel-reinforced concrete structures or wet shotcrete applications exposed to deicing or airborne salts

The optimum dosage of Capcogel 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: Capcogel S: between 3 to 20% by mass of cementitious material Capcogel D: between 4 to 20% by mass of cementitious material

Appearance Gray Gel
Microsilica (Min%) 40
