Opti-Mix® Mortar Plasticiser is a highly concentrated air entraining liquid plasticising admixture which is 25 times the strength of conventional products.
Opti-Mix® Mortar Plasticiser forms extremely stable air bubbles in mortar mixes.
This improves the workability of mortar, giving it a “buttery” consistency and helps prevent shrinkage, cracking, crazing and mild frost damage during the curing process, as well as providing long term resistance to freeze / thaw cycles.
Opti-Mix® Mortar Plasticiser replaces lime in the mix and hence reduces the chance of efflorescence (salt formation) and smoothes out variations between separate batches of sand and cement.
Opti-Mix® Mortar Plasticiser is used for the following applications:
