ADVA® high-range water reducers

High-range water reducers used to consistently produce high strength concrete

ADVA® is a family of high-range water reducers used in the production of ready mix, precast and prestressed concrete. In addition to providing excellent water reduction, ADVA® products generate higher compressive strengths, better slump retention, improved rheology, enhanced air control, superior finishability and robustness across a wide range of materials, including both flowable and self-consolidating concrete.

Overview

ADVA® products do it all

Whether it’s keeping the water/cement ratio to a minimum while achieving high strength and durability or producing extremely workable high slump, there's not a lot that ADVA® products can't do.

ADVA® 405 when used in Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) provides excellent blemish-free form finishes. ADVA® 198 provides excellent slump retention and near neutral set properties. From design to production to construction, there's no aspect of the concrete creation process that ADVA® can't help with.

What are the benefits of Self-Consolidating Concrete?

Self-Consolidating Concrete is a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete that spreads into place, fills formwork, self-compacts and encapsulates even the most congested reinforcement, all without any mechanical vibration.

SCC produced with ADVA® products provides unique advantages over conventional flowing concrete:

  • Lower SCC viscosity
  • Self placement
  • No segregation
  • No blocking

Workability, durability, high strength result in superior concrete

ADVA® products  are high efficiency polycarboxylate-based superplasticisers especially formulated to extend slump-flow life while imparting extreme workability without segregation to concrete, to achieve high early compressive strength.

These ADVA® products can:

  • Produce SCC concrete with extremely high levels of workability without segregation.
  • Provide superior water tolerance to the concrete making it less susceptible to normal manufacturing moisture fluctuations.
  • Extend slump life to enable batch plant adjustments and predictable job site plastic properties.
  • Provide superior concrete surface finish characteristics with reduced bugholing.
