Technical Information
Product Description

ESPANSIL is a powdered expansive additive which permits to prepare, according to the dosage, concrete with compensated shrinkage, chemically prestressed concrete, expansive cement mortars and concrete. 

The expansive action of the product, which begins and finishes within 7-10 days of curing, varies according to the percentage of the product used, the watercement ratio, the quality of cement, and the time and conditions of work and curing. This action eliminates the micro-cracks due to hydraulic shrinkage, at the same time increasing impermeability and mechanical resistance of concrete and mortars. 

ESPANSIL's addition doesn’t modify neither workability nor the setting time. A value of compression resistance is just a little bit higher in comparison with common concrete, so it can be negligible. But the very important property of expansive concrete that is prestressing which allows it to get higher values of pulling and flexure.

Compiliance Standard
  • UNI 8148 – UNI 8149
  • ASTM C 878-80

Keep in a sheltered and dry place in closed packaging. In these conditions, the product maintains its stability for at least 6 months.

Application Information
Instructions for use

Mixing

ESPANSIL should be added into the mixture with dosage of 6% of the cement weight (6 kg. per 100 kg. of cement) if non shrinking effect is required, and 8% (8 kg. per 100 kg. of cement) for the expansive action. Add the additive to the dry mixture, then add water and mix for about 5 minutes.

Cleaning

All used tools should be cleaned with water before the product cures.

Recommendations

ESPANSIL is compatible with all types of cements Portland and Pozzolan. Besides it is compatible with all COLMEF's additives on condition that every additive is added separately in phase of mixing. To make the best of expansive additives, the proper curing is necessary.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be clean, free from oil, grease, water, paints, dust. The area should be cleaned with water before the application of grout. Any free water must be drained out.

Additional Information
Health & Safety

Avoid contact with eyes or skin. It is recommended to use gloves and goggles during application. If splashes to eyes occurred, wash the eyes immediately with plenty of clean water and seek immediate medical help.
