Batimix QS-RE Series

Grinding aids, set-retarders, and strength enhancers

Description

BATIMIX QS-RE Series products are aqueous solutions of specialty chemicals designed for use in the manufacture of Portland and other hydraulic types of cement as grinding aids and strength enhancers with set-retarding properties.

BATIMIX QS-RE Series products provide all the benefits and advantages of traditional grinding aids such as increased cement fineness and grinding efficiency due to reduced agglomeration of newly fractured cement particles. In addition, these proven additives offer the ability to prolong cement setting times and improve cement hydration which leads to increased 28-day strength. They are effective in both open and closed circuit cement mills.

Main Purpose

BATIMIX QS-RE Series products are particularly recommended for the grinding of Portland, blended, masonry, and mortar cement types. They are suitable for both gray and white types of cement.

Features

BATIMIX QS-RE Series products are easy and safe to handle. They contribute to achieving the following:

  • Increased mill output at the same cement fineness
  • Reduced grinding and energy costs
  • Reduced pack set of cement and increased bulk density, leading to easier storage and transport
  • Reduced agglomeration and inter-particle attraction for easier flow characteristics
  • Enhanced grain size distribution for optimized initial and final strengths of cement
  • Improved cement hydration together with higher 28-days strength
  • Reduced clinker factor for optimized cost and CO₂ emissions per ton of cement
  • Retards cement setting times, enhancing workability retention in hot climates
