Cemairin
260

AIR-ENTRAINING ADMIXTURE
 
Advantages:
  • Improves the durability of concrete against frost and severe weathering conditions
  • Significantly improves the cohesion of concrete mixes
  • Improves workability
  • Chloride-free
Description:

Cemairin 260 is an air-entraining admixture for concrete, formulated from selective polymers to create highly stable microscopic air bubbles which distribute uniformly in the concrete mix.

This effect can be used to improve the resistance of concrete mixes against freezing and thawing, severe weathering and de-icing compounds.

Usage

  • In areas where there is a potential for frost damage such as roadways, airport aprons and runways
  • Can be used with conventional ready mix concrete as well as concrete mixes which include micro-silica, fly ash as well as GGBS

Materials Supplied

Cemairin 260 is available in 275 gal (1,041 litre) and 330 gal (1,249 litre) IBC totes. Bulk supply in tanker trucks is also available upon request. 

Shelf Life

Cemairin 260 has a shelf life of 12 months from date of manufactue if stored at temperatures between 35°F and 122°F (2°C and 50°C).

Application Instructions

Cemairin 260 should be added to the concrete with the mixing water to achieve optimum performance.

An automatic dispenser should be used to dispense the correct quantity of Cemairin 260 to the concrete mix.

DOSAGE

The recommended dosage of Cemairin 260 to achieve air content in range of 3 - 7% is ½ to 4.5 fl oz/100 Ib (32 - 292 ml/100 kg) of cement or cementitious materials in the mix including GGBFS, PFA or micro-silica.

Representative trials should first be conducted to determine the optimum dosage of Cemairin 260 to meet the performance requirements by using the materials and conditions in actual use.

POINTS TO BE CONSIDERED AFFECTING AIR ENTRAINMENT

Any variation in the following factors can cause change in the air content:

  1. Cement fineness.
  2. Concrete temperature.
  3. Sand grading.
  4. Mixture types.
  5. Compaction method.
  6. Carbon or organic impurities

EFFECTS OF OVER DOSAGE

Overdosage of Cemairin 260 will cause the following:

  •   - Significant increase in air content which may cause slight                 reduction in the compressive strength.
  •   - Slight increase in setting time

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Cemairin 260 is not classified as a hazardous material. Cemairin 260 should not come into contact with skin and eyes. 

In case of contact with eyes, immediately flush with plenty of water and seek medical attention.
