The optimum dosage of MS-5 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 10.0 percent by weight of cement is recommended.
For use with other range of dosage, contact ABADGARAN Technical Services Department.
Note: please contact our engineering office in case of simultaneously use of more than one admixture.
DIRECTION OF USE
MS-5 can be added to concrete in two ways:
1-MS-5 could be added to ready-mix concrete before placing concrete.
2-MS-5 could be added to a part or whole of concrete mixing water then added to the concrete mix.
