Dispersants

SD-220C

DESCRIPTION

Contec SD-220C is the concentrated form of SD-220. It is approximately three times more powerful. After adjusting for activity or dilution it can be used in any application that calls for Contec SD-220. ConTec SD-220C is a dispersing aid featuring cutting-edge polycarboxylate technology. It’s highly effective formulation improves cement and color pigment efficiency in all types of architectural and hardscape concrete units. SD-220C improves cement hydration and provides higher compressive strength in manufactured concrete products. Your ICT technical representative can help you design a mix that will used SD-220C to actually reduce manufacturing cost.

TECHNOLOGY

Cement particles stick together in clumps called agglomerations. This clumping prevents water from reaching all the cement. Use of ConTec SD-220C admix breaks up agglomerations to increase the cement surface area available for hydration. The increased surface area holds more water without slumping your mix.  Maximizing the water content of zero-slump mixtures will maximize your results with SD-220C.

PACKAGING

ConTec SD-220C is available in bulk quantities or packaged in 55 gallon (208 L) drums weighing 485 lbs (220 kg) and 260 gallon (984 L) totes weighing 2425 lbs (1100 kg).

HANDLING / STORAGE

ConTec SD-220C should be stored at temperatures above 35°F (2°C) Care should be taken to prevent this product from freezing. Should SD-220C freeze, warm till completely liquid then use mechanical agitation to reconstitute

ADDITION RATES

The recommended dosage is 0.7 – 1.0 US Fluid Ounces per 100 weight of cement. In dry-cast concrete products SD-220C will increase the demand for water by 5% to 10% above normal addition rates. SD-220C is not a water reducer and should not be utilized as such. If you require a Super-plasticizer or water reducer see SD-215 or SD-215C. Please consult an ICT representative for further recommendations to determine the proper dosage rate and order of addition for your particular process. Order of addition procedures can vary per facility. Never mix SD-220C with other admixtures before application.

Particle Dispersants

Super Dispersant

Particle Clumping is Reduced for Improved Hydration

ICT Particle Dispersants are used in both zero-slump and wet-cast mix designs.  The chemical action is the same in both applications but the dose and the physical results are very different between these two mixes.

In wet-cast ICT “SD” products act as water-reducers and super-plasticizers.   In zero-slump the same exact same products could be more accurately described as water-increasers.

These opposite seeming properties are both the result of ICT dispersant’s ability to modify and enhance how water interacts with the cement, pigment, and aggregate particles in concrete.  They are both improve the physical properties of their respective mixes.  Yes, it can be confusing.

ICT will help you match the most beneficial “SD” product to your concrete mix.
