WIDE RANGE OF ADDITIVES FOR A SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCTION
With the firm purpose of satisfying the demands of our customers, PROQUICESA has developed in recent years other lines of additives that go beyond grinding aids and strength enhancers, being able to improve other properties that may be especially interesting for certain applications or locations.
ADITOR® C: MINERAL GRINDING AIDS
Grinding aid specially designed for the grinding of Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3), and other minerals. Its use during the milling of minerals significantly increases the efficiency of the process, increasing the production of the mills and significantly reducing the associated energy costs. Likewise, the granulometric distribution of the ground material will be optimized and its fluidity will be drastically increased.
Mill Output Boost
Grinding Efficiency Optimization
Reduction of Energy Cost
Material Flowability Increase
ADITOR® ProNOx: SOLID PHOTOCATALYTIC ADDITIVE
Solid photocatalytic additive based on nanoparticles of anatase TiO2, which reduces the environmental impact of pollutants present in the atmosphere and decomposes pollutants as a result of human activity (emissions from motorized vehicles, burning fossil fuels, systems).
High decontaminant capacity
Elimination of odors
Protection against bacteria and fungi
Low sulfur content
ADITOR® J: SETTING TIME MODIFIERS
Specially designed additives to control the setting of the cement, accelerating or delaying the initial setting time of the cement, also acting in a beneficial way on the process of hydration of the cement, favoring the decrease in the water demand.
Flexibility in the installation of mortars and concrete, thanks to the ability to modify the initial setting time on demand without modifying the rest of the properties of the mix
In the case of accelerators, allow mortar or concrete to have rapid development of mechanical strength within a few minutes after application, with practically no loss of strength after long curing times
The setting time retardants allow to increase the workability of mortars and concretes for a longer time, in such a way that problems are avoided in transporting the mixture over long distances, or rapid setting in hot climates, etc.
ADITOR® H: SUPERPLASTICIZERS
High-performance, chloride-free superplasticizer additives, based on high-tech organic polymers, used to produce high-performance concretes. The superplasticizing action provides high workability and significantly reduces the water-cement ratio, thus providing pronounced increases in concrete compressive strengths and maintaining consistency for long-distance transport. The ADITOR®H additive also provides a good slump, allowing to obtain well cohesive concretes without segregation of particles.
Reduction of w/c ratio
Reduces concrete segregation
ADITOR® AES: AIR ENTRAINING ADDITIVES
Air-entraining agents are a family of specialty products composed of liquid additives that increase air trapped in the cement mortars as fine bubbles homogeneously distributed. The generation of these microscopic bubbles provides differentiating qualities to the cement, allowing to increase its workability thanks to the increased fluidity. These additives also provide greater resistance to freeze-thaw cycles.
Mill Output Boost
Dry cement fluidity
Freeze-Thaw cycles Resistance
ADIDESCO: RELEASE AGENT FOR ADSORBENT MATERIALS
Release agent formulated based on mineral oils emulsified in water that prevents the adhesion of concrete on formwork of all kinds, but especially on absorbent formwork such as wood, allowing to obtain concrete and smooth and stain-free exposed mortars.
