StarLig has good deflocculating properties in cement powder and it can therefore be used in the dry grinding raw material processing phase. Finer powders can be obtained and so increase the yield of grinding mills. When used in concrete mixes, StarLig increases the fluidity of the mass, so reducing the amount of water required and at the same time improving the rheological properties.
In specific applications, it is also possible to use StarLig products as binders, improving mechanical resistance, plasticity and distortion resistance of the structure. The possibility to vary sugar content leads to many applications regarding to regulation of setting times. In the plaster sector, apart from fluidifying, StarLig can be used to retard setting times. This means that workability of mixtures can be improved.
