V-MAR® 10P

Cohesion agent for pump and underwater concrete mixes

Product Description

V-MAR® 10P is a colloid-based product giving the concrete a fattier, creamy consistency.

Dosage

  • Improved pumping and anti-segregation performance: 50 to 150gms / m3.
  • Underwater concreting: 0.1 to 0.5% of cement weight (normal average dose 0.3%).
  • Compatible with all cement types.

Product Advantages

V-MAR 10P produces a more cohesive, highly workable concrete with the following advantages:

  • Greatly reduced underwater washout with improved pumping qualities
  • Reduced pumping pressures, improved pumping distances
  • Much reduced segregation (ideal for paving, exposed aggregate concretes)

Directions For Use

Spread the required amount of V-MAR 10P powder onto the dry aggregates (or the cement), briefly “dry-mix” and then add gauging water to “wet out” concrete.

Depending on the dosage level it may be necessary to mix for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, as a slight temporary stiffening may occur at the start of mixing process. This temporary condition is generally associated with high dosage levels.
