Sika® ViscoCrete®-10 is a third generation superplasticiser for concrete and mortar. It meets the requirements for set retarding / high range water reducing superplasticisers according to EN 934 - 2.
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 prestressed concrete structures.
