HARDENING ACCELERATING ADMIXTURE
SikaRapid®-1 is a non-chloride hardening accelerator formulated to increase the early strength of concrete without affecting the initial workability.
High Early Strength Concrete: SikaRapid®-1 delivers excellent results in normal and hot weather conditions where very high early strengths are required. Benefits
- Early stripping and re-use of forms
- Faster finishing operations on flatwork surfaces
- Earlier post-tensioning.
- Effective with GU, MH, HE cements
- Use as a replacement for steam curing to save energy costs
- Increase early strengths and allow faster rotation of molds to increase productivity
- Use as a replacement for HE Type cement
- Insulation and heating costs for curing time can be reduced
- Earlier stripping and reuse of forms increases labor productivity
- Accelerated strength gain allows earlier structural use and speeds completion time
