Shrinkage-reducing admixture for concrete
BATIMIX Anti-Shrink 610 is a ready-to-use liquid admixture that significantly reduces the drying shrinkage of concrete. It does not contain expansive material. It acts chemically to decrease the surface tension of water in the concrete capillary pores.
The pore water capillary tension is the primary driver of the drying shrinkage in concrete. BATIMIX Anti-Shrink 610 is designed from high grade selected glycol chemicals to dramatically reduce the tensile strength developed within the menisci and the angle of contact with the capillary walls.
It is used in concrete castings where cracks, due to drying shrinkage, are prevalent, and their repercussions are most severe on the structure's durability.
Concrete prepared with BATIMIX Anti-Shrink 610 is characterized by the following:
In the plastic state:
In the hardened state:
BATIMIX Anti-Shrink 610 is not considered a hazardous product. However, it should not be swallowed or allowed to come into contact with skin and eyes. Suitable gloves and goggles should be worn. For additional information, kindly refer to the product’s Material Safety Data Sheet.Reference:MK-PR-5542
