Super plasticizers

Super plasticizers reduce the water content of a concrete mixture while maintaining or even improving the consistency. Super plasticizers are vital for the development of high quality concrete, such as low-compacting, self-compacting or high-strength concrete. As a result of the continuous...

Air entraining agents

An air entraining agent is an additive for concrete which allows for the forming of a controlled amount of finely dispersed air bubbles during the mixing process. These little air bubbles continue to remain present after the hardening of the concrete mixture. When the concrete has hardened, the...

Plasticizers are an additive to a concrete mixture to reduce the water content of a concrete mixture without altering the consistency. Plasticizers improve the dispersion of cement particles which increases the processability. Manufacturers of truck-mixed concrete use plasticizers mainly to...

Accelerators are admixtures for concrete which accelerate the bonding. This happens, for example, by reducing the transition from the plastic phase to the set phase of the mixture. In addition, accelerators can be used to enhance the strength development in the initial phase. Hence an...

Foaming agents

Cugla foaming agents are used for the manufacture of foam concrete. In its elementary form foam concrete consists of 4 components: cement, water, a foaming agent and air. A low weight, minimal water absorption, thermal insulation and durability are the most important properties of foam concrete. ...
