Polycarboxylate superplasticizers are a fairly recent development in the concrete admixture industry. This unique blend of water-reducing chemicals provides substantially more benefits than previous superplasticizers. In fact, Fritz-Pak’s Supercizer PCE provides up to 40% water reduction and up to an eight-inch slump reduction in most concrete mix designs. This product does not contain hazardous or corrosive materials and comes packaged in our signature, water-soluble bags for easy addition to the concrete at the job site. Supercizer PCE also includes a defoaming agent, to reduce the risk of the product entraining unwanted air into the concrete.

Does Supercizer PCE affect concrete set times?
Supercizer PCE is a non-retarding, non-accelerating superplasticizer and has no effect on set times.
Will Supercizer PCE affect the air content?
Supercizer PCE contains an anti-foaming agent, making it an air-neutral product. So you should not see changes in the air content of your concrete.
Will Supercizer PCE affect the concrete color?
Supercizer PCE will not discolor your concrete. It can actually improve color when it is added before the color powder is applied to the concrete.
Will Supercizer PCE affect concrete strength?
If you use less water when adding Supercizer PCE, your concrete will be stronger. If your water content is not changed, strength will increase minimally.
What makes Supercizer PCE diff erent from your other admixtures?
Supercizer PCE was designed using the most recently developed chemistry for water reduction in concrete (polycarboxylate ether). Many of our customers who use liquid PCE in their ready-mix operations asked us to make a powdered version for on-site dosing, much like our other products.
Is Supercizer PCE good for shotcrete?
No. For Shotcrete work, we recommend Supercizer 5.
