SikaPaver® Impress

SikaPave® Impress is a liquid admixture which is formulated from modified Lignosulphonates.

USES

SikaPave® Impress is used for producing optimised semi-dry concrete with a verylow moisture content. Semi-dry concrete production is generally used in themanufacture of machine-made concrete products associated with instant demoulding.

  • Block paving
  • Kerbstones
  • Edgings and other items for garden and landscape design
  • Building blocks and bricks
  • Concrete pipes
  • Manholes and drainage goods

CHARACTERISTICS & ADVANTAGES

SikaPave® Impress offers substantial benefits to the producer of semi-dry concrete products:

  • Efficient dispersion and distribution of cement, additives and pigments
  • Improved movement of the concrete through the machine (faster mould filling)
  • Optimised compaction with shorter pressing time and increased throughput (shorter production cycle)
  • Increased “green” strength on immediate de-moulding (keeps the shape of freshly de-moulded semi-dry concrete products because it prevents slumping after de-moulding)
  • More economic concrete mix designs
  • Closer textured and more uniform surfaces
  • Consistent product quality due to a homogenous concrete mix
  • Increased density
  • Enhanced early and ultimate compressive and tensile strengths
