Concrete additives can assist in a variety of ways to improve your concrete batches.  If you need accelerators, retarders, air entrainment, better workability or reduced bleed water, these are just some of the ways that additives can help you control the output of your concrete batch with finer precision. Below are some options to help you get more out of your mobile mixer.


Plastihyd Concentrate

plastihydPlastihyd give your concrete batches greater plasticity and dehydration of the water mixed into the concrete. This results in a tighter bond between the cement, water and aggregates.

Plastihyd also reduces water bleed, and thus finishing time. Forms can be removed more quickly,  ensuring that you finish the job faster and reap higher profits.

Additional Benefits of Plastihyd:

  • Adds life to concrete
  • Saves time and money
  • Creates better uniformity in mobile mixers
  • Requires less water
  • Reduced hydration time
  • More workable mix
  • Less water bleed
  • Highly diluted for cost effective use

Plastihyd is available in cases (4 x 1 gallon bottles) and in 55 gallon drums
