Sika® Technologies for Precast Concrete

The Precast concrete industry is driven by quality with significant value being placed on productivity and factory efficiency.

 

Sika® ViscoCrete® technology is now challenging the world of precast concrete
providing the possibility of optimised production.

  • Excellent self compacting properties
  • Easy and simplified placing
  • Reduced water cement ratio
  • Improved early age strengths

 

Sika® ViscoCrete® technology substantially improves the basic properties of concrete. The positive impact is substantial and clearly visible, particularly in outstanding workability, high early strengths, easy finishing and fine surface finishes.

 

  • Sika® ViscoCrete® reduce water contents, improve rheology characteristics and cement hydration efficiency
  • SikaRapid® improve early strength development and/or modified setting characteristics
  • Sika® Stabiliser improve the internal cohesion properties of fresh concrete
  • Sika® Separol® concrete release agents provide the possibility to produce fair-faced concrete surfaces for fulfilling aesthetical requirements

Precast Concrete achieved with Sika® Technologies

The manufacture of precast concrete relies on quality constituent materials and
the production process.

 

Sika technology now allow for the optimisation of:

  • Rapid rotation of moulds and finishing of concrete surfaces
  • Improved surface finish
  • Early prestressing at low temperatures
  • Reduced energy consumption for heating or steam curing
  • Develop the most cost-efficient mix designs
  • Reduction of cycle times allows you to reduce the number of moulds needed
  • Reduced cement volume and use of replacement materials
  • Accelerated strength development
