Batimix VMA 530

Pumping aid admixture

Description

BATIMIX VMA 530 is a pumping aid liquid admixture. It is used when pumping concrete over short or long distances.

Main Purpose

BATIMIX VMA 530 offers high resistance to forced bleeding. It prevents the de-watering of concrete under the pressure of pumping. It is characterized by long-chain water-soluble polymers of complex forms that can then intertwine and develop attractive forces through hydrogen bonds and polymer entanglements. It is used to enhance the cohesiveness and uniformity of flow during concrete pumping. Applications using BATIMIX VMA 530 include all types of pumped concrete and shotcrete used for casting structures with or without steel reinforcements.

Features

Concrete prepared with BATIMIX VMA 530 is characterized by the following:

In the plastic state:

  • Greatly reduced bleeding and segregation
  • Increased cohesiveness with fewer risks to the separation of mixture constituents during the pumping operations
  • Improved stability of fresh concrete during casting and thereafter
  • Thixotropic action, providing enhanced homogeneity
  • Sag-resistance in shotcrete applications

In the hardened state:

  • At normal dosages, no detrimental effect on setting time
  • Improved durability and better surface quality
