FLUID AIR

Foamer in water solution for concrete exposed to freeze-thaw cycles

Code: ADX.0056

Components: 1

Appearance: Liquid

Aerating agent in solution specific for concretes exposed to freeze-thaw cycles and antifreeze salts or for light conglomerates (concrete with polystyrene, concrete with perlite, etc.). It compensates for partial lack of very fine parts in the conglomerate, improving its appearance, the cohesion and pumpability. It improves the workability, it reduces segregation and bleeding.

Characteristics

FLUID AIR is particularly indicated for the addition to mortars, grouts and concretes, to create micro air bubbles (50-420 microns), to strengthen the resistance to freeze/thaw cycles.

Use fields

Additive to increase hardness vis-à-vis the freeze/thaw cycles in concrete. Production of concretes lightened using lightweight aggregates: polystyrene, pumice, perlite, vermiculite, etc.

Use method

Add the product directly in a concrete mixer, mixer truck or in the mixer, together with the mixing water; stir until a homogeneous whole, free of lumps is obtained. The density and viscosity of FLUID AIR are conditioned by the temperature of the environment: use preferably in temperatures >10°C.

The dosage for use for the purposes of the resistance to freezing/thawing cycles will be about 0.05 % of the weight of the cement. To produce light concretes instead dose at 1 kg/m³. In the case of joint use with superfluidifying additives, reduce the normal dosage of FLUID AIR.
