Fritz-Pak Supercizer 5 is a dry powdered admixture, packaged in a ready-to-use water-soluble bag formulated to produce stronger more durable concrete. As a superplasticizer, Supercizer 5 may be added with the normal amount of mix water to produce more flowable concrete with up to a 6-inch (15 centimeters) slump increase. When used as a high-range water reducer, this product will reduce water requirements up to 25%, increase concrete compressive strength at all ages, reduce permeability, and increase durability. Supercizer 5 does not contain calcium chloride, nitrates, nitrites, or other potentially corrosive materials and is compatible with all standard concrete admixtures.

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.
  • Higher early and ultimate strengths
  • Improves concrete workability with no loss in strength
  • Addition of Supercizer 5 will not affect the water-cement ratio
  • Higher strengths may be achieved more economically
  • Improves cohesiveness and reduces concrete segregation
  • Produces concrete with lower permeability
  • Concrete achieves higher durability
  • Allows concrete placement in difficult access or heavily reinforced areas
  • Concrete produced with Supercizer 5 can be used in the ready mix or prestressed/precast concrete industry
  • Reduced shrinkage cracks and creep
  • Higher modulus of elasticity
  • Supercizer 5 is packaged in a water-soluble Fritz-Pak inner bag for convenient use at plant or job site, eliminating the need for admixture dispensers

Compatibility

Supercizer 5 is compatible with all air-entraining admixtures, calcium chloride and other admixtures. When used with other admixtures, each admixture must be dispensed separately into the mix.
