  • Plastiment® V-105

    Plastiment V-105 is a highly effective liquid Mid Range Water Reducing admixture for the production of medium to high workability concrete. Plastiment V-105 is chloride free admixture and is compatible with all types of Portland Cement including Sulphate Resistant Cement (SRC).

     

    Use

    Plastiment V-105 is suitable for the production of site mixed as well as ready mixed concrete

    • Used for concrete with extended transport or placing times
    • Used for concrete in hot climates where long slump retention is required
    • Used for concrete using high absorbent sand
    • Used for concrete using high percentage of quarry dust

    Characteristics and Advantages

    • Workability and slump retention is greatly improved
    • Increased placeability in slender components with packed reinforcements
    • Suitable for use in conjunction with standard superplasticizers (synergized mixes)
    • Significantly reduces the risk of segregation
    • Water reduction 4% -12% depending on dosage (this will depend on dosage and mix design)
