CHRYSO®Optima CQ 42

CHRYSO®Optima CQ 42 is a new generation superplasticizer based on modified polycarboxylate and synthetic polymers.

Thanks to its specifically designed molecular structure, CHRYSO®Optima CQ 42 enables the concrete manufacturer to produce cohesive, low viscous concrete with long workability retention.

CHRYSO®Optima CQ 42 has been developed to maintain fresh concrete workability
without compromising the setting time.

CHRYSO®Optima CQ 42 enables the production of self-levelling concrete.

Benefits
  • CHRYSO®Optima CQ 42 allows concrete with an important workability to be obtained, while reducing the water/cement ratio.
  • Enhances the workability retention of concrete in hot climates.
  • The dispersion properties of CHRYSO®Optima CQ 42 allow the user to optimise the cement content when a specified mechanical strength is required.
  • On account of all these characteristics, CHRYSO®Optima CQ 42 is a superplasticizer which is particularly adapted for usage in construction jobsites and in the ready-mix concrete industry.
