  • SikaPump®

    SikaPump® is a universal concrete admixture to improve difficult concrete mixes and to protect concrete pumps and pipes from excessive material wear.

     

    Usage

    SikaPump® is recommended where concrete mixes with varying fines content, low cement content or unsatisfactory aggregate grading with poor water retention, lead to improper mixing during pumping and tend to lead to extremely high pump pressure. The use of Sika Pump® facilitates that even secondary raw materials such as aggregates derived from excavation or demolition work, may be utilised and concrete made with such aggregates can be pumped without excessive energy demand.

    Characteristics

    SikaPump® increases cohesion, plasticity as well as the gliding ability of fresh concrete. Therefore, workability and above all the pumpability of difficult concrete mixes will be noticeably improved. Concrete pumping, frequently interrupted by stopages due to blocking of the pipes etc. can be avoided and the output increased. SikaPump® helps to extend longivity of pumps and pipes.

    SikaPump® has no negative effects on the hardened concrete properties . SikaPump® does not contain chlorides or any other substances that cause reinforcement corrosion and can be used without restriction for reinforced and prestressed concrete structures.
