Batimix AEA-120

Concentrated air entraining agent for concrete

Description

BATIMIX AEA-120 is a concentrated aqueous solution of modified resins and surfactants. It is used as an air-entraining admixture for all types of concrete under a wide range of temperatures.

Main Purpose

BATIMIX AEA-120 is designed to produce air-entrained concrete for increased durability and resistance to damage by frost and de-icing salts. It is also used to improve the cohesion and workability of concrete. It is used in concrete produced from poorly graded aggregates or when bleeding and segregation phenomena occur.

Applications using BATIMIX AEA-120 include concrete castings such as plain, reinforced, paving, ready-mixed, pumped, and lightweight, particularly when exposed to freeze/thaw conditions.

Features

Concrete prepared with BATIMIX AEA-120 is characterized by the following:

In the plastic state:

  • Controlled quantity of evenly distributed microscopic air bubbles
  • Enhanced cohesion and resistance to bleeding as less water is used
  • Improved workability, as air bubbles reduce internal friction

In the hardened state:

  • Increased resistance to attack by sulfate, frost, corrosive water, and de-icing salts
  • Reduced absorptivity, as air bubbles act as air plugs
  • Limitation of progressive cracks, as air bubbles dissipate energy at their tips
  • Improved overall concrete durability and surface appearance

Dosage

0.05% to 0.4% of the cementitious materials
