Sika® ViscoCrete®-10

HWR- High Range Water Reducer 

Sika® ViscoCrete®-10 is a third generation superplasticiser for concrete and mortar. It meets the requirements for   high range water reducing superplasticisers according to AS1478.1-2000.

Sika® ViscoCrete®-10 is a powerful superplasticiser which acts through several different mechanisms including surface adsorption and sterical effects separating the cementitious binder particles. The following advantageous properties are achieved:
  • High water reduction, resulting in high density, high strength and reduced permeability
  • Superior plasticising effect, resulting in improved flow, placing and compaction characteristics
  • Reduced shrinkage during curing and reduced creep when hardened
Sika® ViscoCrete®-10 does not contain chlorides or any other ingredients which promote the corrosion of steel. It is therefore suitable for use in reinforced and pre-stressed concrete structures.
