Air Entraining Admixtures/ Water Reducerscroll down
Duplast AIREX is designed to produce air entrainment in concrete mixes. It is used whenever compacted, durable concrete with resistance to frost action and effects of deicing salt is required. It improves workability & reduces tendency of bleeding. It also reduces density of light weight blocks, without impairing strength. It gives increased durability to dense concrete blocks & because of entrained air; a reduction in material cost is achieved.Download PDF

Method of Use
Duplast AIREX should be added preferably through a calibrated dispending unit and added to the mix with the gauging water to ensure correct mixing.
The dosage rate of 100ml – 250ml of Duplast AIREX per 50kg of cement bag will normally produce an entrainment of 4%-5%.
The dosage rate of Duplast AIREX will vary depending upon the particular materials and mix design being used.
