Sika® ViscoCrete®-225 P


Sika® ViscoCrete®-225 P is a third generation high range water reducing and superplasticizing powder admixture for use in concrete and mortar. It is based on Sika’s patented ‘ViscoCrete®’ polycarboxylate polymer technology.

Sika® ViscoCrete®-225 P is a unique, specially formulated polycarboxylate powder that combines different mechanisms and is compatible with a variety of cement chemistries. Through surface adsorption and steric separation effect on the binder particles, in parallel to the hydration process, the following advantages may be observed:
  • Effective when utilized with cements that have high C3A, sulphate and alkali content.
  • Effective when utilized with ordinary portland cements (OPC) and blends of OPC and aluminate cements.
  • Compatible with other additives (i.e. citric acid).
  • Extremely high water reduction (resulting in high density and strengths).
  • Excellent flowability (resulting in greatly reduced placing and compacting efforts).
  • Increased high early strength development.
  • Improved shrinkage and creep behavior.
  • Low absorption time, “wets out” faster then competitive materials.
  • Medium retardation.
  • Ideal for use in self-leveling, self-compacting applications.
