Plasticizers for concrete
BATIMIX WR Series products are high-performance liquid water-reducing admixtures for concrete. They are based on high-grade lignosulphonates.
BATIMIX WR Series products are designed to improve the workability of concrete and effectively reduce free water content. They disperse the fine cementitious particles in concrete mixes by electrostatic repulsion and adsorption. As a result of this de-flocculation, higher than normal concrete strength grades are achieved with reduced cement contents and increased workability.
Applications include all types of plain and reinforced concrete castings such as self-consolidating, precast, ready-mixed, lightweight, pumped concrete, and shotcrete.
