ZYLA® Water-Reducing Admixtures

Producers can enjoy more workability without adding more water? For a concrete admixture that improves the material without any downsides, look to the ZYLA® family of products.

The products comprising the ZYLA® brand are designed to increase the workability, finishability and durability of concrete. Better still, these products are made with pure chemicals and not by-products,  and have no impact or air entrainment.

ZYLA® 610
Description

ZYLA® 610 water-reducing admixture is a proprietary formulation incorporating highly purified specialty organic chemicals. ZYLA® 610 promotes more complete hydration of Portland cement and has no effect on concrete air entrainment.

Key Benefits
  • No impact on concrete air content
  • Better control of water reduction and setting times
  • Synergistic performance of polycarboxylate-based mid-range and high-range water reducers
  • Improves the compressive and flexural strengths at all ages of concrete
Application Type

ZYLA® 610 is suitable for normal weight and light weight concrete in ready-mix, precast and prestressed applications

ZYLA® 614R
Description

ZYLA® 614R is a ready-to-use aqueous solution of organic compounds specifically designed as an admixture for use in Portland cement concrete. The ingredients are factory pre-mixed in exact proportions under strict quality control to provide uniform results. One gallon weighs approximately 9.4 lbs (one liter weighs approximately 1.13 kg)

Key Benefits
  • Consistent air entrainment
  • Consistent performance across cement chemistries
  • Provides combination of slump life and improved strengths
  • Creamier and more homogeneous concrete texture
  • Reproducible set performance
Application Type
  • ZYLA® 614R is used to retard the initial and final set of concrete.
  • ZYLA® 614R typically provides 5% water reduction in a concrete mix.
ZYLA® 620
Description

ZYLA® 620 water-reducing admixture is a proprietary formulation incorporating polycarboxylate and highly purified specialty organic chemicals. ZYLA 620 promotes more complete hydration of Portland cement and has minimal effect on concrete air entrainment.

ZYLA® R
Description

ZYLA® R is a ready-to-use aqueous solution of organic compounds specifically designed as an admixture for Portland cement concrete. The ingredients are factory pre-mixed in exact proportions under strict quality control to provide uniform results.

Key Benefits
  • No impact on concrete air content
  • Better control of water reduction and setting times
  • Synergistic performance of polycarboxylate-based mid-range and high-range water reducers
  • Improves the compressive and flexural strengths at all ages of concrete
  • Linear set retardation with increasing addition rates
Application Type

ZYLA® R is designed for use on jobs where high temperatures or extended setting times are the prime factors. It is recommended only when the primary purpose is to delay and control the setting time of concrete.

Overview

Increase durability and workability

The ZYLA ® family of water reducers provide superior water reduction, compressive strength, and set time control. Designed for versatility, these products work synergistically with other polycarbonate based mid- and high-range water reducers. Use of ZYLA® results in a creamy and homogenous surface for excellent aesthetic and finishability properties.

Synergistic performance

Additional formulations allow for more specialized applications. ZYLA® R is recommended for hot weather, or wherever more time to work, compact, or vibrate a concrete mixture is required.

Cut cleanup times

ZYLA® admixtures are fully compatible with other polycarboxylate based admixtures. For more information on how to incorporate ZYLA® into  your mix design alongside other PC-based water reducing products, contact GCP today.
