High Strength Concrete Systems

Strength in concrete is referred to as “initial/early strength” or “ultimate /high strength“. 

 

The critical factors influencing the strength of the concrete are:   

  • The type of cement   
  • The concrete admixtures   
  • The concrete temperature   
  • The water/cement ratio

 

Special Sika® ViscoCrete® products have been developed, which produce a significant increase in initial or ultimate strength. Due to the strong water reducing and plasticising effects of the Sika® ViscoCrete® technology, the water/cement ratio can be kept to a minimum and the optimum mix design can be developed.

 

If it is necessary to speed up the hydration process even further, SikaRapid®technology will enable you to reach target strengths within hours.
