Concentrated Superplasticizer and Naphthalene Sulphonate
BETOCRETE®-F4 (FM) – High efficiency superplasticiser for ready-mix and precast concrete. BETOCRETE-F4 (FM) is a concentrated superplasticiser for low w/c concretes or where highly flowable mixes are required without affecting setting times. Based on naphthalene sulphonate, BETOCRETE-F4 (FM) will result in better dispersion of cement agglomerates and optimal wetting of cement particles. BETOCRETE-F4 (FM) is particularly suited for the production of ready mix and pre-cast concretes.
- Results in homogeneous mix and pumpability.
- Significant initial and final strength gains.
- Ability to highly reduce w/c ratios.
- No adverse effect on setting times.
- Does not entrain air.
- Easy finishing of surfaces – no stickiness.
- High water reduction rates.
- Good slump behaviour without sticking.
- High-slump / high performance concrete.
- Density: 1.20 g/cm³.
- Dosage range: 0.2-3.0% on cement.
