A liquid admixture for high-range water reducer and superplasticiser.
What is Sikament®-700
Sikament®-700 is a liquid admixture which is added to concrete as a superplasticiser.
It helps to strengthen concrete, enabling a lower cement content and is best suited to use in flooring concrete.
Sikament®-700 meets the requirements of BS EN 934-2 standard.
The advantages of Sikament®-700
There are many advantages to opting for Sikament®-700, which has a long-standing history of reliability and application in a wide range of flooring and construction projects.
Through the reduction of water, Sikament®-700 results in a higher strength and density of concrete, along with reduced shrinkage and potential for delamination. It improves many other features of the concrete including cohesion, rheology and durability, and gives a fast and predictable setting time for powerfloat finishes.
Sikament®-700 is a unique product that is suitable for:
Production ready mixed flooring concretes
Suitable for laser screed and hand laid floor slabs
Applications that require high quality concrete
Application that require high early strength Characteristics / Advantages
Case Study Example: Malin Floors and Fife District Council
Contractor Malin Floors needed a suitable admixture that would speed up the process and fit a tight timescale in laying concrete floor in Fife District Council’s two, brand-new warehouses.
In schemes where a floor will be subject to considerable traffic and strain from heavy loads, such as warehouses, a surface must adhere to strict durability demands, particularly in commercial projects where missed deadlines and failings can be costly and inconvenient.
Requiring a high-performance finish that boasted strength, integrity and durability to accommodate the heavy use associated with its workforce, Malin Floors turned to Sika and Sikament®-700.
Sikament®-700 is particularly well suited to the Fife District Council project thanks to its laser screed properties, providing even distribution and prompt curing time – no matter how large the area.
To maximise efficiencies, 150m³ was pump-poured before being evenly distributed across the new-build floorplate.
The installation took just three hours and was ready to receive a laser screed finish just a few hours after installation, with impressive results.
