CHRYSO®Air G500 is an air entraining agent creating stable microscopic air bubbles in concrete and mortar.
CHRYSO®Air G500 protects the concrete effectively against frost/defrost cycles and the action of defrosting salts.
CHRYSO®Air G500 creates a matrix of stable, evenly distributed air bubbles in both the fresh and hydrated system employed.
In fresh concrete, CHRYSO®Air G500 also has a plasticising effect. It limits the amount of segregation and reduces or even eliminates bleeding.
Using CHRYSO®Air G500 prevents many compatibility problems between cement/sand/admixtures.
Its highly effective action ensures its compatibility with all types if superplasticizers, and especially with CHRYSO®Optima and CHRYSO®Premia ranges.
CHRYSO®Air G500 improve workability - the micro air bubbles entrained act as ball bearings, lubricating the mix.
CHRYSO®Air G500 is recommended for all concrete and mortar mixes where low density and entrained air is required.

- Highway slabs, runways
- Dams, reservoirs
- Road & maritime construction
- Compensation of the harshness of some natural sands with low fine particle content
