Fritz-Pak Supercizer 1 is a dry powdered superplasticizer admixture, packaged in a patented ready-to-use, water-soluble bag. It is formulated to produce stronger, more durable concrete. As a slump enhancer, it 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, it will increase concrete compressive strength at all ages, reduce permeability, and increase durability. Supercizer 1 does not contain calcium chloride, nitrates, nitrites, or other potentially corrosive materials and is compatible with all standard concrete admixtures.

How long will the slump change last?
30 to 45 minutes. The concrete will gradually return to the original slump. Time will be shorter in warm weather.
Will it change the set time?
Supercizer 1 is a slight retarder. In temperatures between 50° and 70°F you may see up to an hour of set retardation.
Will it affect the air content?
It may increase air content up to 2%. If air content is critical in your application eliminate the addition of air entrainment admixture at the plant and correct the air content at the jobsite using Super Air Plus if needed.
Will it change my concrete strength?
If water is reduced during the batching, you should expect an increase in strength. If water content is not changed, you will not see any changes in concrete strength.
Do you recommend Supercizer 1 for use in the winter?
No. Supercizer 3 or Supercizer 5 should be used in the winter.
Can the concrete be redosed if slump starts to change?
Yes. You may redose to maintain your slump.
Is Supercizer 1 compatible with other superplasticizers?
Supercizer 1 is compatible with most other superplasticizers. However, due to the constant change in formulations by other manufacturers, we strongly recommend testing for compatibility with other superplasticizers. For specific applications, contact Fritz-Pak Corporation.
  • Up to 20% water reduction or 6″ slump increase
  • Slump control at the job site without adding water
  • Higher early and ultimate strengths
  • Improves concrete workability with no loss in strength
  • Addition of Supercizer 1 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
  • No need for admixture dispensers because Supercizer 1 is packaged in a patented water soluble Fritz-Pak inner bag for convenient use at the plant or job site

Compatibility

Supercizer 1 is compatible with all air-entraining admixtures, calcium chloride and other admixtures. When used with other admixtures, each one must be dispensed separately into the mix.
