Batimix CR Series

Additives for reduced level of hexavalent chromium in cement


BATIMIX CR Series products represent a new generation of hexavalent chromium reducing agents. These products are used in the manufacture of Portland and masonry types of cement. The incorporation of such liquid additives at the right dosage and under the right conditions in the cement manufacturing process reduces the level of hexavalent chromium below 2 ppm for a minimum period of 3 months, without it affecting either the rheological or mechanical performance of both mortars and concrete. These additives can be supplied, upon request, in powder form.
