Ekan® MIX 242

High Consistency, High Range Water Reducer New Generation Super Plasticiser

EN 934-2 T 3.1 / T 3.2

  • EKAN®MIX 242 is a new generation high range water-reducing polycarboxylate-based superplasticising admixture.

    Thanks to its special formula designed for the production of precast concrete, EKAN®MIX 242 enables hydration to occur over a larger surface area and in a more homogeneous manner. Along with increasing early compressive strengths, it significantly reduces the time required for the concrete to set. 

  • EKAN®MIX 242 enables concrete production at low water/cement ratios, which results in an increased water impermeability of concrete.
  • EKAN®MIX 242 should not be mixed or used together with naphthalene-based products.
