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 superplasticizing admixtures and JIS A6204 “Chemical Admixtures for Concrete”. It is compatible with all cements 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 a reduced water demand.
