Retarders

Pozzolith® 100 XR

Pozzolith 100 XR ready-to-use, liquid admixture is used for producing more uniform and predictable quality concrete. Placing and finishing requirements are facilitated because this admixture retards setting time. Pozzolith 100 XR admixture meets ASTM C 494 requirements for Type B, retarding, and Type D, water-reducing and retarding, admixtures.


Features

  • Reduced water content required for a given workability
  • Retarded setting characteristics
  • Controlled retardation – depending on the addition rate

Benefits

  • Improved workability
  • Reduced segregation
  • Superior finishing characteristics for flatwork and cast surfaces
  • Flexibility in scheduling of placing and finishing operations
  • Offsets effects of too early stiffening during extended delays between mixing and placing
  • Helps eliminate cold joints
  • Dead-load deflection can take place (before concrete sets) in extended pours for bridge decks, cantilevers, nonshored structural elements, etc.
  • Peak temperature and/or rate of temperature rise in mass concrete lowered thereby reducing thermal cracking
  • Increased compressive and flexural strength
