Rofluid P1 is used as a raw material base for the production of superplasticizers for concrete. The product is a 50% aqueous solution of polycarboxylate ether (PCE) from transparent to delicate white colour. The polymer consists of a long main chain and short side chains depending on the number of repeating units of ethylene oxide and/or propylene.

Properties and applications

Product application advantages:

  • allows reducing the amount of batched water (even by 35%) without deteriorating the consistency of the concrete mix;
  • enables lower cement consumption, which reduces costs (while maintaining constant w/c);
  • increases the compressive strength of concreto
  • low dosage of 0.4 to 1.5% on the binder weight (depending on the expected concrete properties);
  • possible to use at reduced temperatures without inhibiting cement hydration;
  • does not cause corrosion of reinforcing steel (low chloride content);

Applications:

  • Production of precast concrete
  • Production of waterproof concrete
  • Production of architectural concrete
  • Production of concrete for massive elements
  • Production of self-compacting concrete
  • Production of concrete from reactive, high-quality and ultra-high-quality powders
