SikaMix® NP


SikaMix® NP is a new generation, synthetically manufactured, admixture for low and no slump concrete mixes. SikaMix® NP is a scientifically formulated blend of a nonionic surfactant, and a plasticizing and dispersing agent which lubricates low and no (zero) slump concrete mixes utilized in block,(dry cast) concrete products, and pipe production. The lubrication quality of SikaMix® NP improves cohesiveness, strengths,
uniformity, and compaction in non-plastic concrete resulting in a reduction of breakage or chipping.

SikaMix® NP is an integral concrete densifying admixture that acts as a cement dispersant and enhances the unit water content.
  • Machine productivity will be increased by more rapid filling of form and mold boxes.
  • The internal lubricating properties of SikaMix® NP reduce the wear on machinery and extends machine life. (Surface swipe will be more pronounced.)
  • Moisture absorption rates will be reduced.
  • Lighter colours will maintain a more uniform, consistent shade and general product appearance will be improved.
  • Edges on pipe and block will be sharper, more defined and less likely to chip.
SikaMix® NP contains no calcium chloride or any other intentionally added chloride containing ingredients. It will not initiate or promote the corrosion of steel in contact with the concrete.
