CX SUPERCONCRETE LS
CX SUPERCONCRETE LS is a dark brown liquid based on lignosulphonates which mixes readily with water and therefore disperses evenly. CX SUPERCONCRETE LS waterproofs by improving the quality of the concrete or mortar. It reduces the water demand for required workability and minimizes segregation and bleeding.
Uses : To minimize permeability and increase the waterproofing properties of concrete and cement sand mortars for critical applications like roof slabs and screeds, basements, external plastering, bathroom floors, water tanks, sumps, drains etc.
Standards compliance: CX SUPERCONCRETE LS conforms to IS: 2645-2003.
|Can be used with all types of cements, including Pozzolanic but not High Alumina Cement.
|Permeability to water
|Less than 15% as compared to 50% max. Allowable under IS: 2645compared to control sample.
|No significant effect on setting time of concrete or mortar
|Maintains compressive strength equal to control concrete or mortar and can evenimprove on strength property if full advantage of water reduction potential is utilized.
|Improves workability at reduced water cement ratio
Note: Mixes using CX SUPERCONCRETE LS will require much less water than normal mixes for the same workability. Water reduction may be as much as 15% or more. If the moisture content of the sand or aggregate changes i.e., it becomes wetter or dryer, and then the amount of water used must be reduced or increased to give the original workability.
