Field of Application
BC25 is recommended when ever
Concreting in hot, dry and windy weather,
Concreting with long distance delivery,
Large volume placement, with gradual and smooth setting, like
Concreting where slow concrete workability development, is
Average volume placement, like concreting in very big
Properties and Effects
The following benefits will be provided
Retards the initial setting time of concrete,
Increase concrete strength in the long run,
Reduce the thermal and pasty shrinkage of concrete, and as
well as cracks on the surface,
Creating good condition for concreting in hot weather,
concreting in windy weather,
Increase in the concrete workability.
The effects of BC25 on resistance of concrete to pressure are
shown in Table 1.
The addition rates will be up to 2 percent of cement weight. The
amount to be used will depend upon the required time for
maintaining the concrete workability.
Table 2 shows the dosage of BC25 at concrete temperature and
