SPECIFICATION
ASTM-C 494 : Types A & D
IS : 9103 – 2007
IS : 2645 – 2003
DESCRIPTION

Perma Plast-SL is a water reducing, water proofing and general purpose plasticiser for concrete. It is based on refined ligno sulfonates.

Perma Plast-SL

PRIMARY USES

  1. To increase workability.
  2. To increase compressive strength.
  3. To affect cement economies.
  4. For hot weather concreting.
  5. To waterproof concrete and plastering mortar.

TYPICAL APPLICATION

  1. In areas of congested reinforcement where high workability is beneficial.
  2. In pre-cast concrete manufacturing.
  3. In concrete brick and block manufacturing.
  4. For hot weather concreting.

ADVANTAGE

  1. Increases workability.
  2. Improves cohesive property in concrete.
  3. Reduces water demand in concrete.

ACTION

Perma Plast-SL is a plasticiser which disperses and deflocculates the cement particles within a concrete mix. It can be used to improve workability without the addition of extra water or to allow reductions in free water content of the concrete mix.

DOSAGE

Field trials should be conducted to determine the optimum addition rates of Perma Plast-SL. A dosage range of 200 gms to 500 gms is ideal for general purpose concreting. For waterproofing the dosage recommended is 100 gms per 50 kg bag of cement.

DIRECTION FOR USE

Perma Plast-SL should be added to the concrete mix during the mixing cycle at the same time as water. Never add Perma Plast-SL to dry cement.

PROPERTIES

Typical properties of Perma Plast-SL are as follows:

Colour : Dark brown/black liquid
Specific Gravity : 1.15 at 25°C
Air Entrainment : 1% maximum dependent on grading of sand and water content.
Chloride Content : Free from added chlorides
Nitrate Content : Nil

COMPOSITION

A liquid admixture based upon refined ligno sulfonates.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Perma Plast-SL is not a health hazard or fire risk. spillages should be washed immediately to avoid possibilities of slipping.

PACKING

Perma Plast-SL is available in 200 gms, 500 gms, 1 kg, 5 kg, 10 kg, 20 kg, 25 kg, 110 kg and 230 kg packing.

SHELF LIFE

Perma Plast-SL has a shelf life of 24 months if stored in manufacturer’s original packing.
