Batimix HWR 1400-A

High grade superplasticizer for concrete with set acceleration


BATIMIX HWR 1400-A is a liquid high-range water-reducing (superplasticizer) admixture with enhanced properties for concrete. It is based on high-grade naphthalene-sulfonate materials blended with selected chemicals to accelerate setting. It does not contain calcium chloride or other potentially corrosive ingredients.

Main Purpose

BATIMIX HWR 1400-A is designed to improve concrete workability and/or allow an effective reduction in the free water content. This product is a highly powerful dispersant, which functions by electrostatic repulsion, breaking-up agglomerates in the concrete mix. It allows for specified concrete strength grades to be achieved, with significantly reduced cement content and/or increased workability. It is particularly used in cold climates to decrease concrete setting times. It allows for the speeding-up of finishing operations and removal of formworks.

Applications using BATIMIX HWR 1400-A include all types of concrete castings, such as plain, reinforced, precast, ready-mixed, lightweight, pumped, and shotcrete.


Concrete prepared with BATIMIX HWR 1400-A is characterized by the following:
In the plastic state:

  • Higher flowability without adding extra water
  • Reduced water content, up to 40%, with minimum secondary effects
  • Enhanced homogeneity, cohesion, and ability to pump the concrete mix\
  • Accelerated setting, especially suitable for use in cold climates

In the hardened state:

  • Increased strengths - compressive, flexural, and bonding
  • Reduced shrinkage, creep, water permeability, and cracking
  • Enhanced durability and better surface appearance of the concrete
