Air Entrainers & Detainers

Air Minus

Air-Minus is a dry powdered defoamer for use in dry blended materials, or for wet/plastic concrete. It decreases foaming and minimizes air entrainment in cement slurries, grouts, concrete and mortars. It can also be used to counteract the air entrainment caused by water reducers and plasticizers.

Advantages

  • Reduces the amount of concrete rejected due to high entrained air content.
  • Increases unit weight of concrete.
  • Recommended for the production of heavyweight concrete.
  • Allows high speed mixing of cement and fly ash without foaming.
  • May increase compressive strength of concrete.
  • Counteracts entrained air caused by the new generation of superplasticizers.
  • Maintains slurry densities.
  • Air-Minus is available in bulk or in a patented water-soluble inner bag for convenient use at the plant or job site.

Compatibility

Air-Minus is compatible with most admixtures. Adding salt, surfactants, superplasticizers, air entrainers or latex to the mix can cause increased foaming or reduce the effectiveness of Air-Minus. When used with other admixtures, each admixture must be dispensed separately into the mix.

Air Plus

Air Plus is dry powdered admixtures, packaged in patented ready-to-use water-soluble bags or in bulk (50 lb bags). Air Plus is recommended for all types of air entrained concrete when an increase in entrained air content is necessary. Air Plus may also be used as primary air-entraining admixtures. Air Plus is compatible with all standard concrete admixtures.

Advantages

  • Reduces amount of concrete rejected due to low entrained air content.
  • Air Plus is premeasured dry materials and will not freeze.
  • Easily transported and dispensed.
  • Improves concrete workability.
  • Addition of Air Plus will not affect the water/cement ratio.
  • Entrained air content may be easily adjusted prior to job site testing.
  • Air Plus is packaged in water-soluble inner bags for convenient use at plant or job site.

Compatibility

Air Plus is compatible with all air entraining admixtures, calcium chloride and other admixtures. When used with other admixtures, each one must be dispensed separately into the mix.
