StarLig Dispersants and Plasticisers

StarLig lignosulphonates are excellent plasticisers for cementitious systems, reducing water content and improving workability. In addition by reducing the amount of cement required for a given strength they deliver major cost savings, and help to reduce the CO2 footprint. Specific parameters such as retardation and workability retention can be fine-tuned by selecting the optimum StarLig product and corresponding addition rate :

It is extremely important to note that the addition rate (by %swbc) has a pronounced effect on the final properties of the mixed concrete. For example, slump retention, retardation, setting time and strength development.
