Sika Admixture is an ingredient, either natural or artificial, used in the making of concrete or mortar other than water, cement or aggregates. It is primarily used to allow better control over the setting and hardening of the concrete, improve the qualities of the material or provide additional properties. Satiate is the leading manufacturer of chemical building solutions & passive fire safety solutions.
Sika Additives and additives should be differentiated in that these products are typically solid and applied to the cement during its manufacture, for example, set-controlling gypsum, stearate grinding aids, or as a major component in the manufacture of concretes and mortars.
To optimize the success of sika admixtures, builders need to ensure the correct batching and concreting methods are used. While the majority of admixtures are supplied in a ready-to-use form which can be added directly to the concrete at site or plan, certain admixtures such as expansive agents and pigment are only used in minute amounts, and therefore batched from premeasured containers by hand.
The modern building industry uses a number of concrete chemical admixtures to achieve desirable qualities as well as encouraging sustainability within them. SIKA defines an admixture as a material other than water, aggregate, cement and fiber reinforcement, used as a constituent of concrete mortar and added to the batch immediately before or during the mixing process. Sika chemical admixtures are the smallest component of a concrete mix but impart significant beneficial effects on the concrete properties in terms of performance, durability, environment optimization leading to sustainability etc.
Sika water reducing admixture usually reduce water cement ratio while maintaining. Concrete which contains a water-reducing admixture requires less water than untreated concrete to reach a necessary slump. The treated concrete may have a lower ratio of water to cement. This typically implies the possibility of making a higher strength concrete without increasing the amount of cement. Sika water reducing admixture can be led to the development of mid-range water reducers.
Water-reducing admixture is used to manufacture high-strength concrete to minimize cross-section of compression members in high-rise building, enhance concrete performance in hostile conditions, and much more.
