Air Detraining Admixtures

Air-repellent compound:

Air Detergent 1 is an air entraining agent intended for plastic concrete. It helps to remove the foam and reduces air permeability in cement mortar, drains, concrete, and mortar. It can also be used to deal with air pollution from dehumidifiers and superplasticizers. This mixture causes the microscopic air bubbles in the cement paste to expand during mixing, thus increasing its resistance to freezing and melting and increasing its applicability (ACI 212.3R).

The advantages of incorporating air into concrete include greater resistance to freeze-thaw degradation, greater cohesion (resulting in less bleeding and segregation), and better compaction in low workability mixes. Air overtraining can be caused by the inadvertent addition of double doses of adjutants or by the use of more than one adjuvant, both of which entrain air Tributyl phosphate is tributyl phosphate. Dibutyl phosphate, water-insoluble alcohols, water-insoluble boric, and carbonic acid esters, as well as silicones, can also do the job. Obviously, they must be used sensibly so that the concrete ends up with the right amount of air DESCRIPTION

The air disintegration aid is a liquid adjuvant based on modified polysiloxanes. When added to any type of concrete mix, it reduces the formation of pores, bubbles, and air pockets that form during mixing and application.

Phases The deaeration effect increases the density of the concrete, leading to greater compressive strength and less improved durability. By removing excess air bubbles, the overall appearance of exposed concrete is improved and the surface of the poured concrete is more compact and uniform. porosity and permeability.


The anti-air additive can be used in ready-mix concrete and concrete to make members and elements. It also works well when used to make self-compacting concrete and in the mortar production.


Map Air Zero removes unwanted entrained air without affecting flow or set times. Map Air Zero has no plasticizing power, so when used on flowable and superfluid concrete it should always be added in combination with a Superplasticizer admixture. In special cases, where the workability of concrete is enhanced by its air content, adding Map air Zero to the mix may require a slight increase in the amount of Superplasticizer. We do not recommend using Map air Zero in combination with aeration aids from the Map air AE range; its deaerating effect blocks and cancels the formation of microbubbles generated by the aerating agent. We also advise against the use of Map air Zero in concrete resistance to freeze/thaw cycles of exposure classes XF2, XF3 and XF4 specified in EN 206 standards.
