Using a water reducing admixture improves the flow of your concrete without compromising on strength and durability. When you need an extra powerful water reducer for your concrete mix, try Fritz-Pak’s Supercizer 5. Like Supercizers 1 and 2, Supercizer 5 does not contain corrosive materials like calcium chloride, nitrites, or nitrates. So, you can use this product with confidence that it won’t damage your steel reinforcements or develop efflorescence when exposed to salt water.

Benefits of a Water Reducing Admixture

Concrete used for precast pieces, or any sort of form work usually requires high strengths and lots of flow. Unfortunately, achieving these two qualities simultaneously is very challenging. Adding more water increases the flow but decreases the strength. You can add additional cement for more strength, but it will destroy the flow of the mix. That’s why adding a water reducing admixture to your truck is so helpful. Products like Supercizer 5 increase the flow by loosening the bond between the water molecules and cement particles in the mix. This allows the water to flow more easily, which means you get an increased flow with the same amount of water and cement. The unchanged water-cement ratio produces the extra strength you need.

Why Choose Supercizer 5?

Fritz-Pak’s Supercizer 5 lowers the water requirements of your concrete by up to 25%. This is one of the highest rates of water reduction in the industry. This powerful water reducing admixture also increases slump by up to six inches, while lowering segregation and permeability in the concrete.

Will it discolor the concrete?
No. In fact, adding Supercizer 5 before adding color will improve the mixing of color into the concrete.
Will it change the set time?
No, it will not speed or slow the set.
Will Supercizer 5 change the air content of my concrete?
No, at the recommended dosage rate, no change in entrained air content should occur.
Will it change my concrete strength?
If you use less water when adding Supercizer 5, your concrete will be stronger. If your water content is not changed, strength is not changed.
Do you recommend Supercizer 5 for shotcrete?
Yes. Supercizer 5 is the most indicated product for shotcrete applications.
