Product: ADVA® Superplasticizer
Concrete Supplier: Blue Circle Materials

The Challenge . . .

Achieving strength in the support columns for this 48-story structure was crucial. High early strengths were needed overnight, reaching 35 MPa (5,000 psi) within two days, and achieving ultimate strengths of 97 MPa (14,000 psi).

The Solution . . .

ADVA with its high workability, high strength, pumpability and finishability was chosen for the job. ADVA was also chosen for its ability to set faster than normal Type G superplasticizers, allowing the finishers and crew to get on and off the job faster, saving time and money.
