- Corrosion resistant – Makes concrete more cohesive, hence protects steel better against corrosion
- Compatibility – Being a liquid, easily dispersible & compatible with concrete/mortar mixes.
- Permeability – It reduces the permeability of water into concrete.
- Strength – The setting time and compressive strength of the concrete remains within the specification limits.
- Shrinkage – Reduces shrinkage crack development in plaster & concrete.
- Workability – Improves workability of freshly mixed cement concrete.
- Durability – Increases durability by improving waterproofing of concrete.
Method of Application
- Charge cement & aggregates to concrete mixer as per the mix design, mix in dry state for 1–2 minutes.
