Viscosity modifier for highly flowable concrete
BATIMIX VMA 510 is a ready-to-use liquid admixture designed to modify the viscosity of fresh concrete. When used in conjunction with superplasticizer agents, highly flowable and self-consolidating concrete mixes can be successfully produced without bleeding or segregation.
BATIMIX VMA 510 enhances the cohesiveness of highly flowable concrete. It reduces hardening. Its water-soluble polymers are characterized by their long-chains of complex forms, which adhere to the periphery of mixing water molecules in a cement paste. The chains intertwine and develop attractive forces through hydrogen bonds and polymer entanglements. This results in increased plastic viscosity and yield stress even in mixtures with high water-cement ratios. Applications include all types of concrete castings, with and without steel reinforcements. These include highly flowable concrete, self-consolidating concrete, and shotcrete.
Concrete prepared with BATIMIX VMA 510 is characterized by the following:
In the plastic state:
In the hardened state:
BATIMIX VMA 510-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-5538
