Plasticizer for Concrete Pipe

Product Description

QUANTEC® PL-450 admixture is specially formulated for use in the production of zero or low slump concrete pipe. QUANTEC PL-450 admixture is designed to produce a smooth texture on the web of the pipe. It may also be used in the manufacture of other low slump concrete products such as concrete block where a light swipe is desired.

Product Advantages

  • Enhanced web appearance
  • Improved quality
  • Reduced surface cracking
  • Fewer culls
  • Cost effective
  • Improved green strengths

Product Uses

QUANTEC® PL-450 admixture may be used in all zero or low slump concrete pipe to increase workability while retaining cohesiveness and to provide for more complete hydration of the cement. QUANTEC® PL-450 admixture improves the dispersion of the cement throughout the mix as well as improving the workability of the mix.

The increased workability achieved with QUANTEC® PL-450 admixture allows for better compaction of the pipe with a reduction in surface cracking and improved surface quality, resulting in fewer culls. Overall quality of the pipe is improved with an enhanced surface appearance on the webbing of the pipe.
