System for Self Consolidating Concrete – Water-reducing admixtures

An advanced System for Self Consolidating Concrete (SCCS) has been introduced by Grace Construction Products. Central to the system is Grace’s new ADVA® Series of high-efficiency polycarboxylate superplasticizers. ADVA Cast 530 is a single component, highrange water-reducing admixture that produces superfluid SCC without segregation and achieves high early compressive strength. Other admixtures include ADVA Flow Superplasticizer, a high-range waterreducing admixture that promotes high slump, extremely flowable concrete that achieves high strengths while providing superior workability and pumpability; and ADVA Cast, a high range waterreducing admixture for use in all precast/prestressed structures where ultra high-range water reduction is desired.
