BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION
Hostapur OS liq is used as air entraining agent in concrete, mortar and plasters to improve the resistance against ice pressure during freezing.
Hostapur OS liq is particularly stable against calcium ions which are largely present on the wet concrete.
Compared to other air entraining agents like e.g. sodium alkyl sulfates Hostapur OS liq is more efficient and requires lower dosages to produce the same air content.
On particular application for Hostapur OS liq are road pavements made of concrete.
Hostapur OS liq is added to the concrete mixture to produce microfoam with an average diameter of below 300 μm and stabilizes the required 4 – 5% air after short agitation of 30 seconds.
The Dosage of Hostapur OS liq varies between 0,01 – 0,03% based on the cement or approximately 0,03 – 0,10 kg/m3 wet concrete.
Further building applications are mortars, plasters and gypsum board
