Application
_______________________________________________________________________________
Dosage 0.6 – 1.5% by weight of cement. Exact dosage rates are
dependant on the type of cement, water/cement ratio and
ambient environment. It is advisable to carry out trial
mixes.
_______________________________________________________________________________
Compatibility Chemrite - 520 M is compatible with all types of Portland
cement, including S.R.C. and pozzolanic additives like
Silica Fume, Fly Ash, Slag etc.
_______________________________________________________________________________
Dispensing Chemrite - 520 M can be added separately to the freshly
mixed concrete or directly to the mixing water prior to its
addition to the aggregates. When added separately to the
freshly mixed concrete, further mixing should take place
for at least one minute per cubic meter.
_______________________________________________________________________________
Important When accidental overdosing occurs, the set retarding effect
may occur. During this period the concrete must be kept
moist in order to prevent premature drying out.
