Sika® Watertight Concrete Powder

Sika® Watertight Concrete Powder is a combined water resisting and HRWR/Superplasticising admixture, used to enhance the workability of and reduce the water permeability of concrete.

The product incorporates Sika® ViscoCrete Superplasticiser Technology and depending on material package will produce watertight concrete at a S3 consistence with a w/c ratio of <0.45 without the addition of a separate HRWR/Superplasticiser.

Watertight concrete can be produced which is suitable for BS8102:2009 Type B construction (grades 1-3). Sika® Watertight Concrete Powder meets the requirements of BS EN 934-2 Table 9.

USES

Sika®Watertight Concrete Powder has been specifically formulated to produce high quality watertight concrete. Sika®Watertight Concrete Powder is used as a constituent of the Sika ®Watertight concrete system and contact MUST be made with Sika Ltd to ensure that full system compliance is achieved. This Technical Data Sheet MUST be read in conjunction with Sika publication Sika® Solutions for Watertight Concrete.

  • Applications that require high quality concrete
  • A wide range of applications where excellent workability is requested
  • Variable use in different concrete systems with different raw materials

CHARACTERISTICS & ADVANTAGES

SikaPlast® 18RM is a powerful mid-range water reducer/superplasticiser based on advanced technology which gives the following advantages:

  • Strong water reduction, resulting in higher density, higher strength and reduced permeability
  • Less sensitive against variations in aggregates and / or different cement types
  • High efficiency even at low dosage rates
  • Extended workability in conjunction with subsequent strength development
  • Superior plasticising effect, resulting in improved flow, placing and compaction
    characteristics
