XPERT PC 1000
XPERT PC 1000
Polycarboxylate Retarding Admixture
XPERT Polycarboxylate retarder & Plasticizer (PC) 1000 is a 3rd generation, synthetically manufactured, set-retarding, Strength increasing admixture for concrete. XPERT PC 1000 provides for a more plastic and flowable concrete, greater uniformity, increased durability, reduced shrinkage, and permeability in your concrete. XPERT PC 1000 facilitates placing and finishing by providing controlled retardation of the concrete’s setting time, preventing premature stiffening.
• Controlled retardation (determined by dosage) • Increased workability and easier place ability. • Easier and faster pumping of concrete. • Improved finishing characteristics for flatwork. • Reduced shrinkage and cracking. • Reduced segregation at a given slump. • Greater impermeability. • Increased concrete durability and uniformity. • Improved appearance of architectural concrete. • Increased strength at all ages.
Since XPERT PC 1000 is calcium chloride free, it is recommended for use in all types of concrete including plain, reinforced, precast and prestressed concretes. XPERT PC 1000 is especially effective in concretes containing such pozzolanic materials as fly ash, silica fume and slag
The recommended dosage range for XPERT PC 1000 is 0.3 to 0.85 liters per 100 kg of cement.
