The BMP plasticiser is a formulated anionic surfactant solution used as an air entraining agent designed to improve the water retention and workability of cement-based mortars. Improves resistance to cracks due to freeze/thaw cycles.
The BMP plasticiser is suitable for use in all types of mortars using Portland-type cement. May be used at low temperatures (down to +2°C), retaining appropriate conditions for concrete placing work. Reduces water content by 10%. Helps enhance pigment colour used in coloured mortars, unlike hydrated lime, which can fade coloured mortars or when extra plasticity is required when harsh sands are used. Improves workability. Reduces segregation and bleeding.
