Liquid, integral water-repellent with plasticizing effect
BATIMIX IWR 420-S is a liquid integral water-repellent admixture. It is used in all types of concrete mixes. It reduces absorptivity and water penetration from the surrounding environment. The product is formulated from carefully selected inorganic stearates and plasticizing polymers to improve concrete workability. It is supplied in powder-form, upon request.
BATIMIX IWR 420-S significantly decreases the water permeability of concrete by creating a network of insoluble water-resistant material within the pores of the cement matrix. The admixture incorporated in the mix design leads to the formation of an effective internal barrier. This prevents water transmission throughout the concrete. The mixing-water demand decreases due to the plasticizing effect of the polymers incorporated in the concrete. This yields a denser, more durable concrete.
Applications using this product include all types of plain and reinforced concrete castings such as precast, ready-mixed, lightweight, pumped, and shotcrete.
Concrete prepared with BATIMIX IWR 420-S is characterized by the following:

BATIMIX IWR 420-S 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-5537
