TamCem 18


TamCem 18 is a new general superplasticizer for concrete. It contains polycarboxylate ether polymers and is specially formulated to give exceptionally high water reduction and impact extreme workability and slump retention. It is a non-chloride liquid admixture which has been formulated to comply with the requirements of ASTM C 494 for type G water-reducing, high-range and retarding admixtures. It fully meets the requirements of BS5075: Part 3: 1985 for retarding super plasticizing admixtures and JIS A6204 “Chemical Admixtures for Concrete”. It is compatible with all types of cement meeting recognized international standards.

TamCem 18 requires a low dosage compared to conventional superplasticisers but provides greater workability characteristics for high slump, flowable concrete with reduced water demand.

High flowability allows for easy placement and compaction

Key specification

  • Superplasticiser for microfine cement injection /concrete with extreme workability

Key benefits

  • Chloride-free
  • High water reduction enhances high early and ultimate strengths, and low permeability and makes the concrete highly durable
  • High flowability allows for easy placement and compaction
  • Good cohesion, no segregation, minimal bleed water and extremely high levels of workability of the concrete
  • Enhanced slump retention, easier placement and delivery control especially under hot conditions
  • High elastic modulus, low shrinkage and creep are achievable with proper controlled coarse and fine aggregates
  • Superior finishes with reduced honeycombing

Typical applications

  • High performance concrete
  • Mixing logistics efficiency during large pour
  • Highly flowable concrete
  • Highly durable concrete
  • High strength concrete
  • Ready-mixed concrete
  • Mass concrete
  • Pumped concrete
  • Long distance transportation
