Admixtures for Concrete

Back

X-Mix AC

Chloride free accelerating concreting admixture

Uses: To accelerate the setting and early strength gain of concrete and mortars Suitable for concreting in cold conditions such as:

  • Slight daytime frost
  • Expected overnight frost
  • Expected cold periods

X-Mix AE

Air entraining and plasticising admixture

Uses: To produce air entrained concrete that will provide durable concrete with excellent freeze thaw resistance. Also improves the cohesion of mixes to overcome sands with varying quality.

X-Mix AF

Cold weather concreting admixture

Uses: X-Mix AF is a ready to use admixture in cold conditions such as:

  • Slight daytime frost
  • Expected overnight frost
  • Expected cold periods

X-Mix AFP

Cold weather concreting admixture

Uses: X-Mix AFP is a ready to use in cold conditions such as:

  • Slight daytime frost
  • Expected overnight frost
  • Expected cold periods

X-Mix ASI

Alkali-silica reaction inhibiting admixture

Uses: Recommended for use in:

  • All concrete mixtures containing high alkali cement and reactive aggregates
  • Large structures that are difficult to repair or replace
  • e.g. bridges, dams, stadiums, buildings
  • Structures with a long design life.

X-Mix UW

Underwater concrete admixture system.

Uses: X-Mix UW is an admixture system specially designed to allow concrete to be placed underwater, Increases the cohesion of concrete mixes and minimizes washout. Produces well compacted high-quality concrete.

X-Mix CN

Calcium Nitrite corrosion inhibiting admixture

Uses: X-Mix CN is suitable for use with all types of ordinary Portland cements, sulfate resisting Portland cement and pozzolanic materials such as PFA, GGBFS and microsilica.

X-Mix GRC Powder (White)

High range water reducing agent for high strength concrete

X-Mix CableGrout Additive

Cementitious grout admixture for post tensioned cables

Uses: For pumped or free flow grouting, it can be used in a wide range of applications:

  • Post tensioned bridge deck ducts
  • Prestressed structural element cables ducts
  • Slip form silo tendon ducts

X-Mix GRC

High range water reducing agent for high strength concrete

Uses:

  • Standard dosage is 0.25 to 1.5% (on cementitious content), or in combination with X-Mix PolyCarb MP.
  • Due to its high active content, a dilution to 20 to 25% active matter eases the dosification at job site
  • and maintains the needed defoamer more stable. Preservation of the dilution recommended.

X-Mix FastSet AF

Alkali free sprayed concrete accelerator

Uses: Accelerating the set of sprayed concrete/gunite to increase the rate of stiffening reduce rebound.

X-Mix Pigment Concentrate

Synthetic Concentrated Red Oxide

X-Mix FCA

Foaming agent for low density concrete

Uses: Trench filling for permanent, non-sink reinstatement. Void filling for elimination of fire risk, health hazards and control of progressive collapse in areas such as disused solvent and fuel tanks, below railway platforms, old mine workings and redundant sewers. As a lightweight insulating material for roof screeds, suspended floors and basements. As a semi-structural support in cases such as embankments, bridge abutments, tunnels and arches.

X-Mix Pigments

Green Chrome Oxide

X-Mix TG-A

Tunnel Grout Accelerator

Uses: Used in activating the setting times of cement mortars or slurries used for injection grouting. Used for injecting cementitious mixes used in backfill grouting behind the precast concrete segments in tunnels excavated by means of Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM). It also increases the viscosity of cement-based mixes, even when manufactured with a high water/ cement ratio.

X-Mix TG-R

Tunnel Grout Retarder

Uses: X-Mix TG-R is designed for the mixes which require long workability. Used for injecting cementitious mixes used in backfill grouting behind the concrete lining in tunnels excavated by means of Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM).

X-Mix SPF

Structural polymeric fiber

Uses:

  • Rigid concrete floors
  • Floors subjected to heavy loads or elevated dynamic loads
  • Parking areas and airport runways
  • Storage areas
  • Foundation layers
  • Decks and floor slabs
  • Extruded roadways structures

X-Mix PPF

High performance crack control micro fiber

Uses: X-Mix PPF is primarily used as a crack controlling fiber for cementitious materials. Typical applications are crack control in ready-mix concrete, precast concrete, conventional shotcrete, screeds, renders, mortars, micro-silica concrete, concrete slabs, pavements, driveways, imprinted concrete, explosive spall control
