ADVA Cast 555 has been formulated to impart maximum desired workability without segregation to concrete.
ADVA 555 is used widely in the artisan GFRC world as the go-to plasticizer for SCC mixes.
Mixing: ADVA Cast 555 admixture can be added with the initial batch water but delayed addition will generally result in optimum water reduction.
Early addition along with the batch water yields improved mixing efficiency, while delayed addition allows for fine-tuning of the mix consistency.
Adding too much superplasticizer is easy to do, and it can result in segregation.
While this is used for mixes that aren’t intended to fully flow, it is ideal for higher flow mixes.The HM-35 L-Box offers an alternate method of determining flow and passing ability of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) mixes.This method is in use in Europe and some DOT’s in the United States have adopted the procedure or are examining it.Concrete can have different properties depending upon the mixture that is used in creating it, which contains cement, chemical admixtures, and aggregates.These ingredients are mixed with water to create concrete which is used as a primary construction material in buildings.
