StarLig lignosulphonates are excellent plasticisers for cementitious systems, reducing water content and improving workability. In addition by reducing the amount of cement required for a given strength they deliver major cost savings, and help to reduce the CO2 footprint. Specific parameters such as retardation and workability retention can be fine tuned by selecting the optimum StarLig product and corresponding addition rate :
LignoStar Product Selector
|Admixture Type||Product Choices||Water Reduction|
|Normal Plasticiser||StarLig NA98S
|8.0 to 12.0%|
|Mid Range Plasticiser||Pearllex||10.0 to 15.0%|
It is extremely important to note that the addition rate (by %swbc) has a pronounced effect on the final properties of the mixed concrete. For example, slump retention, retardation, setting time and strength development.
