ARMORSIL Retarder 200 is packaged in 25 litres keg and 210 litres drum. Bulk supply in delivery trucks can be arranged on demand.
Typical dosage would be 250ml to 700ml per 50kg bag of cementitious content depending on the intended duration for extending set time.
Note that the actual dosage for any situation would depend on trial mixes, the initial extension of the required set time, temperature and cement type. It is better to add ARMOR Retarder 200 to wet concrete after more than 50% of the initial water has been added. For additional information contact your ARMORSIL local representative. Note that concrete with ARMORSIL Retarder 200 can maintain workability in excess of 3 hours; however, temperature and cement type can affect the workability of concrete.
An overdose of ARMORSIL Retarder 200 may result depending on the degree, in an increase of workability and extension of setting time. Overdosing will not affect long term strength development. It is recommended that Overdosed or normal dosed concrete is properly cured
Shelf life is one year in an unopened pack. .
