ICO Plast A

Accelerating Water Reducing Admixture Concrete Admixtures | Ico Care Construction Chemicals

Description

ICO PLAST-A is a liquid used as a concrete accelerating and plasticizing agent complying with ASTM C-494 Type E, IS:9103-1999 & IS: 2645-2000.

Uses

The use of ICO PLAST-A accelerates the setting and hardening of concrete mix, thereby achieving higher early strength with all the resultant advantages of speeding up the job.

In all types of plain pre-cast concrete work, where the earlier release of molds and handling of units is essential for economical production, ICO PLAST-A is invaluable.

ICO MS

High-Performance Silica Fume For Concrete

Description

It improves the hardened characteristics of concrete in two ways. Firstly ICO MS is a chemically active pozzolan, which reacts with the hydrated lime generates from the hydration reaction of cement and forms calcium silicate hydrate gel, thus improving the strength and impermeability of the concrete.

Uses

The reduced permeability of concrete produced with ICO MS greatly limits the ingress of water-soluble chlorides, sulfates, and aggressive chemicals known for promoting reinforcing steel corrosion and other distresses in concrete. This makes ICO MS an ideal product for use in basement structures, parking decks; bridge decks marine structures and any construction that requires the protection provided by impermeable concrete.

Because of its pozzolanic and void filling properties, the addition of ICO MS to conventional concrete also provides ultra-high compressive strength. This allows design flexibility, resulting in reduced member size, increased span lengths, and improved overall structural economics.

As a result of the preceding advantages, ICO MS will improve performance in pre-stressed, pre-cast, and ready mixed concrete applications.

Applications

ICO MS is recommended for use at an additional rate of 3 to 20% by weight of cement, depending on the amount of strength increase or impermeability desired.

The above addition rate applies to most concrete mixes using average concrete ingredients. Note: For directions on the proper use of ICO MS in specific applications, contact local ICO representative.
