REAL MIX, a water-reducing, set-retarding admixture. It provides a controlled rate of setting for hot weather concreting that complies with ASTM C494 Type A, Type B and Type D, AS 1478 and BS 5075 specifications.

General Description REAL MIX is a liquid water-reducing and set-retarding admixture for concrete. It contains modified lignosulphonates and has been formulated to give optimum performance in reducing water and controlling setting time of concrete.

REAL MIX does not contain calcium chloride or other potentially corroding materials.

Controls rate of set    
Recommended Dosage REAL MIX is recommended at a typical dosage rate 400ml - 800ml per 100kg of cement for most concrete mixes containing average concrete ingredients. The dosage rate can be modified to fit variations in cement, aggregate or job conditions or where special performance characteristics are required.

REAL POINT SDN BHD recommends that special mix designs with dosage rates outside recommended rate, be developed in consultation with our representative to achieve specified requirements.

The optimum dosage should be determined by site trails with the particular raw materials. As a guide, the dosage rate is normally in the range of 0.4 litres to 0.8 litres per 100kg of cement.
Effects of
An overdose of double the recommended rate of REAL MIX will result in significant retardation. When overdosing occurs, it is important to maintain adequate curing so that the ultimate strength of the concrete will not be adversely affected but will increase ultimately.
Packaging REAL MIX is supplied in bulk by tanker and sealed 205 litres drum.
Storage / Shelf Life REAL MIX can be stored for 6 months in tank and 1 year in tightly sealed original drum.
Dispensing REAL POINT SDN BHD will supply and install a complete line of electrically-operated automatic dispensing equipment. Our technical department can assist with recommendations on suitable dispensing equipment and installation to meet a unique job site conditions.
