Admixtures for concrete products
MTC® MULTIMIX Hydro
MULTIMIX Hydro has a fluidifying effect that has a positive effect on the compacting capabilities and increases the green strength. By means of considerable water savings early and final strengths are considerably increased. Moreover MULTIMIX Hydro brings about a chemical modification of free calciumions and a hydrophobic lining of the capillary pores. The resistance to frost and deicing salt is increased and tendency to efflorecence is significantly decreased.
In concrete, MULTIMIX Hydro causes: - improved compacting capabilities on account of a fluidifying effect, which with the accompanying water savings brings about increased green, early and final strengths. - a possible cement saving of up to 20 %. - hydrophobic reaction of the capillary pore system. - reduction in efflorescence and an increase in the resistance to frost and de-icing salt. - significant colour intensification in coloured concrete goods. - a lubricating effect on account of the increased homogeneity that improves the quality of the exposed concrete
- To create mechanically produced, one-course and uncoloured concrete goods or face concrete for concrete goods (consistency C0 – C1), like for example, concrete paving blocks, pavement flags, restricting elements and palisades.
- To produce early-strip and early-deliver concrete goods.
