Fritz-Pak’s polycarboxylate superplasticizer employs the latest information in concrete chemistry to reduce water requirements by up to 40 percent. This can lead to an eight-inch slump increase without the addition of extra water. Supercizer PCE is an ideal product for use in heavily reinforced projects as well as precast concrete pieces. It comes packaged in our signature, water-soluble bag for easy addition to the mix. It does not contain chlorides or other corrosive materials. So it is safe for use with steel reinforcements. Check out the product demonstration video below to see how quickly Supercizer PCE can change the consistency of your concrete.

Does Supercizer PCE affect concrete set times?
Supercizer PCE is a non-retarding, non-accelerating superplasticizer and has no effect on set times.
Does your polycarboxylate superplasticizer change 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.
