Demonstrations at our mortar laboratory show the water reduction achieved with Borresperse® CA at different dosage levels. We used a typical European standard mortar for the tests.
Performance of Lignosulfonates in Mortars
Using Borresperse CA as water reducer in mortar can influence all parameters: initial flow, workability, setting time and compressive strength development. The effect depends on the dosage. A typical range is 0.1 to 0.5% solids by weight of cement (sbwc).
