POLYCRETE F1000

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Typical Application                                    

Where excellent early development strengths are required as well as ultimate strengths.

  • Suitable for recast and prestressed concrete.
  • To increase flow ability of concrete during placing without increasing water content.
  • To improve durability of concrete by reducing permeability with increasing early strength gained.

Product Features

  • Early strength development seven days results are obtained after three days, twenty eight days results are obtained after seven days.
  • Increases density and reduces porosity to have an improved water penetration resistance concrete.
  • Reduces segregation, bleeding & increases mix cohesion.
  • Enables recast concrete units to be demoulded quickly.
  • Cement saving are possible strength decrease or workability loss.
  • High workability concrete is produced at normal cement content.
  • Non toxic and non flammable.

 

Standards

POLYCRETE F 1000  complies with ASTM C -494 Types A and F, BS 5075 Part

Properties

Colour
 Brown liquid.

Specific Gravity 
1.185 at 20° C.

 Air Entrainment 
+1 %

Chloride Content 
Nil.

Setting Time 
Will not be affected at the recommended dosage.

Permeability
 Improves waterproofing properties of concrete and increases its density.

Compatibility
POLYCRETE F 1000  can be used with all types of Portland cement including Sulphate Resisting Cement (S R C).
It is also compatible with other POLYCOO admixtures provided that the two admixtures
are added separately to the mix.
Please consult our technical department when mixing.

Water Reduction
 A reduction up to 20 % can be achieved; depending on material used & mix design and ambient temperature.

Cohesion
 Dispersion of cement particles will increase cohesion in flowing and plastic consistency.

Compressive Strength
The addition of POLYCRETE F 1000  improves the compressive strength of concrete at the same

 

 

cement content and slump. It also increases the rate of strength gain.

Workability
 POLYCRETE F 1000  will produce free flowing concrete without reducing the free water content.

Durability
The increase in density due to the addition of POLYCRETE F 1000  improves resistance of concrete to aggressive agents

Curing

recommend the use of POLYCURE RB  for curing.
(See separate data sheet)

Dosage

Flowing concrete 
0.50 to 1.00 lit. per 100 kg. cement.
High strength concrete 
 1.20 - 1.70 lit. per 100 kg. cement.
POLYCRETE F 1000  should be added to the concrete mix during the mixing cycle or at point of placing on site.

Overdosing

An overdose of double recommended amount of POLYCRETE F 1000  will result in very high workability and some retardation will occur. The ultimate compressive strength of the concrete will not be impaired.

Cleaning

Spillage can be removed with water.

Packaging

POLYCRETE F 1000  is supplied in 210 lit. drums. For bulk deliveries, 1000 lit. Containers are available.

STORAGE

POLYCRETE F 1000  should be stored in shaded areas.

Shelf Live

One year when stored as recommended.

Health and safety

  • POLYCRETE F 1000  is non flammable and non toxic.
  • Any splashes on skin should be washed with water.
  • Seek medical assistance in case of contact with eyes, after washing it with running water.

Quick Overview:

  • Short Description:

    Product Description POLYCRETE F 1000 is high-range water-reducing concrete admixture which is formulated to produce flow able concrete with a very high physical and mechanical property. It is based on a blend of synthetic polymers that aggressively disperses cement particles which tend to agglomerate, enabling the mixing water to perform more efficiently and contains materials that achieve early strength to concrete.
