Set Retarding and water reducing admixture


POZZOLITH 405 is a ready-to-use, liquid admixture for producing more uniform and predictable quality concrete. Placing and finishing requirements are facilitated because this admixture retards setting time. It meets ASTM C494 requirements for type B Retarding and Type D Water-Reducing and Retarding Admixtures, with these special characteristics:

POZZOLITH 405 admixture will not initiate or promote corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete. The admixture does not contain calcium chloride or chloride-based ingredients.


POZZOLITH 405 admixture is recommended for use in all types of concrete where moderate to extended retardation of set and improved performance are desired.

This admixture improves pumped concrete, and conventionally placed concretes. POZZOLITH 405 admixture can be used with air entraining admixtures approved under ASTM. When used in conjunction with another admixture, each admixture must be dispensed separately into the mix. By itself, POZZOLITH 405 admixture does not entrain air.


The set retarding characteristics of POZZOLITH 405 admixture in the production of concrete with the following special qualities :

Improved workability

Reduced segregation

Superior finishing characteristics for flatwork and cast surfaces

Controlled retardation - depending on the addition rate

Provides flexibility in scheduling of placing and finishing operations

Helps eliminate cold joints

increased strength (compressive, flexural and bond of concrete to steel)

reduced permeability-improved watertightness

Lowers peak temperature and/or rate of temperature rise in mass concrete-reduces thermal cracking


Concrete produced with POZZOLITH 405 admixture will have rapid strength development after initial set occurs. If retardation is within the normal ASTM C 494 types B and D specifications, POZZOLITH 405 admixture will develop higher early (24 hours) and higher ultimate strengths than plain concrete when used within the recommended dosage range and under normal, comparable curing conditions.

When POZZOLITH 405 admixture is used in heat cured concrete, the length of preheating period should be increased until initial set of the concrete is achieved. The actual heat-curing period is then reduced accordingly to maintain existing production cycles without sacrificing early or ultimate strengths.


Concrete POZZOLITH 405 admixture is recommended for use at the rate of 300 ± 100 ml. per 100 kg of cementitious for most concrete mixes using average concrete ingredients. Because of variations in job conditions and concrete materials, dosage rates other than recommended amounts may be required. In such cases, contact your local BASF Construction Chemicals Sales representatives.


1. Introduce either undiluted solution or diluted solution of POZZOLITH 405 into the mixer at the mix.

2. POZZOLITH 405 solutions is part of mixing water. Adjust mixing water content.


POZZOLITH 405 is available in 205 litres drum and bulk.
