The optimum dosage of MICRO GEL can be determined by trials in the site. Depending on concrete mix design (concrete type, workability, compressive strength, sizes and types of aggregates, cement content, water/cement ratio, ambient temperature and concreting conditions), a dosage of between 3.0 and 8.0 percent by weight of cement is recommended.
Note: when using MICRO GEL, water-cement ratio can be considered around 0.40.
For use with other range of dosage, contact ABADGARAN Technical Services Department.
Please contact our engineering office in case of simultaneously use of more than one admixture.
DIRECTION OF USE
MICRO GEL can be added to concrete in two ways:
1- MICRO GEL could be added to ready-mix concrete before placing concrete.
