ARMORSIL Retarder 100 is an SNF based water reducing and set time retarding admixture for concrete. ARMORSIL Retarder does not contain calcium chloride and other corroding materials. ARMORSIL Retarder is a blend of polymer based plasticizer and proprietary retarding agent. The chemical process of ARMORSIL Retarder when activated temporarily stops the hydration process, delaying the initial setting time in proportion to the amount of dosing. At the completion of the initial setting time, curing commences at a regulated rate.
ARMORSIL Retarder 100 is typically used to produce:
- Pre-stressed Concrete
- Concrete requiring water reduction and set time control
- Hot weather concrete placement
- Ready mixed concrete requiring long travel time from plant to site
- Ready-mixed concret
- Pumped concrete.
