ADVA® Cast high-range admixtures

A high-range water reducing admixture for the precast/prestressed concrete industry. Excellent placeability and workability, flow through congested forms without segregation and high early strength: there is an ADVA® Cast to meet all your needs.

What is ADVA® Cast?

ADVA® Cast is a series of high efficiency, polycarboxylate-based, high-range water-reducing admixtures for the precast/prestressed concrete industry. In addition to providing excellent water reduction, ADVA® Cast products generate higher compressive strengths, better slump retention, improved rheology, enhanced air control, superior finishability and robustness across a wide range of materials, including both flowable and self-consolidating concrete.

  • Extended slump retention
  • High workability
Application Type
ADVA® CAST 660
Description

ADVA® CAST 660 is the latest technology in the development of high range water-reducing superplasticising admixtures. It is an innovative, versatile, third generation polycarboxylic ether polymer developed for the premix and precast industries to maximise performance through a wide range of concrete  strengths.

Key Benefits
  • It can be added at the batch plant during the batching process eliminating the need for on-site addition
  • It has superior slump retention without retardation
  • Reduction of steam or heat energy curing to achieve high early strengths
Application Type

ADVA®  CAST 660 allows concrete to be produced over a wide range of strengths, at low water-cement ratios with high placement slumps. ADVA® CAST 660 can produce high flow concrete for tremie and pump mixes that require extended slump life. ADVA®  CAST 660 is ideal for use in general precast and precast/prestressed applications to produce high early strengths with reduced heat energy required for curing.

Overview

Solve challenging forms, improve efficiency and quality with high-strength SCC

Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) is a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete that spreads into place, fills formwork, self-compacts and encapsulates even the most congested reinforcement, all without any mechanical vibration. SCC flows evenly around complex or congested forms without segregation.
