Eucon Retarder 100

EUCON RETARDER 100 is a synthetically produced liquid water-reducing and set retarding admixture for concrete. It is a modified sodium gluconate. EUCON RETARDER 100 does not contain calcium chloride or other potential corroding materials and may be used in the presence of aluminum or zinc embedments. EUCON RETARDER 100 may be used at varying dosage rates to achieve extended set times compared to a control mix of up to 30 hours. Extended set times are frequently needed on bridge decks where the added dead weight of the concrete will cause deflection and a lack of bond to reinforcement and excessive cracking. It is compatible with air-entraining agents, waterproofers and calcium chloride.
