Polycarboxylate Superplasticizer (PCE)
Polycarboxylate Superplasticizer (PCE) is a water-soluble concrete additive used to reduce water to cement ratio without affecting the workability of the mixture. PCE increases protection from slumping, then increases the slump retention since cement loses workability with time. PCE increases the structure’s strength after construction. It also improves early-strength in concrete while simultaneously lowering water content and retaining the original workability level. In wider application, PCE can be used as an emulsifier and a surfactant.

SAFETY & HANDLING
Not to be taken internally. Practice the proper personal hygiene to avoid ingestion. FOR PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Store it in a temperature range of 5° to 40 °C with the receptacle tightly sealed. Open and handle receptacle carefully to prevent formation of aerosols. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing.
DOVEMIX – 150 A is aqueous high-performance Polycarboxylate Ether Superplasticizer designed for high range water reducing admixture in concrete applications. Excellent control of the concrete fluidity, increase slump retention, reduce the slump lose and improve the strength of concrete. It is easily formulated with various types of cement, effective for use at low doses, thereby increasing productivity and reducing costs.
DOVEMIX – 550 A is aqueous high-performance Polycarboxylate Ether Superplasticizer designed for high performance water reducing admixture in concrete applications. Which can be applied to high rises and large sized building requiring high strength and high fluidity concretes and reduce the slump lose. It is easily formulated with various types of cement, effective for use at low doses, thereby increasing productivity and reducing costs.
Superplasticizers are water-soluble organic substances that reduce the amount of water needed to achieve a certain concrete stability, reduce the water-cement ratio, and reduce cement consumption, increase slump and workability.
Produce high quality concrete, with low permeability (more impermeable to water).It can reduce water so that the water use becomes less, the distribution of cement particles in the fresh concrete mix becomes more optimal, which in turn produces the higher density concrete that can be more watertight. Construction for highways, railways, subways and tunnels. Also for self-compacting concrete, precast and pre-stressed concrete.
Superplasticizer can be used in the gypsum panel and plasterboard process. In mixing compound phase, a small amount of superplasticizer are used so that the slurry will flow during manufacture, and to reduce the water and hence the drying time.
Oil & Gas
Superplasticizer is used in pipe jacking method. Superplasticizer use is for water cut-off materials or durable and high resistance waterproofing membranes for shield tunneling method. PCE also can be added for mud withdrawal process to reduce viscosity and increase fluidity.
Superplasticizers are used as a raw material in the production of emulsions, especially for waterproofing and cementitious applications.
