Fritz-Pak developed our Supercizer PCE after many of our customers asked for a powdered polycarboxylate superplasticizer that could be added to the mix at the job site. This is the most modern form of concrete chemistry, and Supercizer PCE is our most powerful superplasticizer. Supercizer PCE is compatible with almost all types of concrete mixes and offers up to 40% in water reduction and ultra-high early strengths.
Benefits of a Polycarboxylate Superplasticizer
- Up to 40% water reduction
- Improves workability
- Higher strength achieved more economically
- Lower permeability
- Higher flexural strength
- Reduces concrete segregation
Using a Polycarboxylate Superplasticizer
Supercizer PCE is an excellent product to use for precast or prestressed concrete projects. This admixture is compatible with air entrainers, accelerators, and other commonly used admixtures, but each product should be added to the concrete separately. Fritz-Pak’s polycarboxylate superplasticizer will not impact the set time of the concrete, but it will improve the mix cohesiveness of the mix for increased strength and durability.
For the Best Results . . .
Our polycarboxylate superplasticizer comes packaged in one-pound, water-soluble bags. If your mix contains 600 pounds of cement/yard, then adding one bag of Supercizer PCE will reduce the water requirements by 40%. Ambient temperatures delayed set admixture, or the use of silica fume may affect the effectiveness of Supercizer PCE, but you can overcome these challenges with additional dosage rates. Be sure to ask your distributor or our technical support at Fritz-Pak about using Supercizer PCE in these mixes.
