Plasticizer UP-2 description
UP-2 plasticizer for aerated concrete is a universal additive for lightweight concrete such as foam concrete and polystyrene-concrete based on cements. In accordance with GOST 24211-2008, it is a plasticizer (OK from P1 to P3) and has the effect of accelerating the hardening of concrete and foam concrete.
Plasticizer UP-2 has maximum efficiency when used with cement produced without additional admixtures. The UP-2 is suitable for the production of lightweight concrete on all types of foam concretes machinery.
Possessing high efficiency, UP-2 is simple and safe during transportation, storage and use.
Plasticizer for foam concrete UP-2 is compatible and always effective when used together with foaming agents and other additives of both organic and inorganic composition.
Usage of plasticizer UP-2
The UP-2 has a wide range of applications. It is used in the production of lightweight and heavyweight concretes.
- Foam concrete and polystyrene concrete production.
- Lightweight concretes production using synthetic and protein foaming agents.
- Production of all types of concrete products, including with the use of additional additives.
- Production of reinforced concrete structures without prestressed reinforcement.
- Ready-mixed concretes production with a certain degree of mix mobility.
Consumption rates UP-2 plasticizer
The consumption rate of UP-2 is 0.5% – 0.7% of the dry mass of cement. Depending on the goals and objectives of the additive application as well as the production technology, the dosage may differ from the indicated value.
The consumption rate is determined empirically on the materials used in each individual case.
Appearance, storage and transportation
This plasticizer is produced in polypropylene bags with a polyethylene liner weighing 20 kg. It can be transported by any means of transport as it refers to non-hazardous cargo.
The plasticizer should be stored in its unopened original packaging in a dry place. It should be stored on pallets that provide protection against moisture and moisture.
The shelf life of the plasticizer is 12 months from the date of manufacture.
