Batimix Fly Ash DG3-P

Fly ash additive

Description

BATIMIX Fly Ash DG3-P is a powder fly ash pozzolanic additive used in wet and dry-mix shotcrete applications to enhance strength and durability and reduce the permeability of hardened concrete.

Main Purpose

BATIMIX Fly Ash DG3-P are ultra-fine particles that significantly improve the particle packing of shotcrete mixes as they physically fill voids in the cement paste. This leads to a more densified shotcrete skeleton with a reduced level of bleeding. On the other hand, this product reacts chemically with the calcium hydroxide present in the cement paste, yielding a calcium silicate hydrate gel that significantly enhances strength, water/chloride impermeability, and durability. Applications incorporating this product include all types of high strength and specialty shotcrete and repair applications.

Features

Shotcrete prepared with BATIMIX Fly Ash DG3-P are characterized by the following:

In the plastic state:

  • Better cohesiveness with less bleeding and segregation

In the hardened state:

  • Increased compressive and flexural strengths at all ages
  • Greatly reduced permeability against water and aggressive chemicals
  • Increased resistance to abrasion and erosion
  • Improved durability and better surface quality

Dosage

15% to 25% of the cement weight

Packaging

  • 25 KG Bag
  • 50 kg Bag
