Novel admixture solution from BASF
BASF’s Construction Chemicals business has introduced an admixture solution, sureTEC. sureTEC, which stands for Super Retention Technology, enables concrete producers to gain control over workability between the batching plant and the placement site for two hours or more, even in hot weather.
The workability time helps reduce problems caused by external factors, which can make it difficult to estimate the time window between batching and placement of the concrete.
Speaking at the launch, Himanshu Kapadia, chief executive, Construction Chemicals business in South Asia, said: “Our competitive edge lies not only in manufacturing of top grade products but also in our global presence.” sureTEC is available as a standalone admixture, or as a premixed in-product additive with selected BASF admixtures.
