Concrete Plasticizer 

  • An admixture for Concrete that allows the water content of a concrete mixture to be reduced without impairing its consistency or to increase its slump without changing the water content or to achieve both effects at the same time.
  • Plasticizers, also known as Super Plasticizers or high-range water reducers which reduce water content by 12 to 30 percent and can be added to concrete to make high-slump flowing concrete. 
  • Properties includes increases durability& impermeability, lower pumping pressure, reduction in shrinkage, increased cement efficiency as compared to conventional concrete used in the construction.
