A new high-performance plasticizer

In order to avert the risks of too high water contents in manufacturing of concrete products, Ha-Be Betonchemie GmbH & Co. KG has developed the Antipor Hydrocem high-performance plasticizer and brought it to the market.

One of the critical factors in manufacturing of concrete products is the addition of an optimum amount of water: If adding a too small amount of water, the strength properties required will not be achieved, whereas concrete bulges in case of a too large amount of water. In both cases, the concrete product does no longer conform to the standards required with the result of unsalable rejected products. In order to avert the risk of too high water contents, Ha-Be Betonchemie GmbH & Co. KG has developed the Antipor Hydrocem high-performance plasticizer and brought it to the market.
