Drymix

We supply a range of air entraining agents and superplasticizers for mortar and plaster applications.

Our air entraining agents reduce the weight of the plaster and mortar, enhance crack resistance and increase the insulating properties of plaster after drying. They also improve the flow properties of the mortar and plaster slurry.


EMPICOL® and NANSA®

Our high performance air entraining agents are sold under the registered brand names EMPICOL® and NANSA®.

They work by harnessing the ability of surfactants to lower surface tension in aqueous media by adsorption at the interface. This leads to better mortar workability together with improved anti-shrinkage properties, better sag resistance, water retention and frost resistance.

Our range includes:

Air entraining agent

EMPICOL® 0045/B

Sodium alkyl sulphate. Provides controlled incorporation of air, homogenous distribution of micro-pores and reduces crack formation of plaster after drying.

EMPICOL® LX/A

Sodium alkyl sulphate. Provides controlled incorporation of air, homogenous distribution of micro-pores and reduces crack formation of plaster after drying.

EMPICOL® LZ/SM

Sodium alkyl sulphate. Provides controlled incorporation of air, homogenous distribution of micro-pores and reduces crack formation of plaster after drying.

NANSA® LSS495/H

Sodium alpha olefin sulphonate. Improves mortar workability and reduces crack formation of plaster after drying in hot climates.

NANSA® HS80/S

Sodium alkyl benzene sulphonate. Provides a strong foam in hard water salt conditions and reduces mortar setting time.

NANSA® HS85/S

Sodium alkyl benzene sulphonate. Provides strong foam in hard water salt conditions and reduces mortar setting time.

Superplasticizer

DEHSCOFIX® 151

Calcium naphthalene sulphonate condensate. Improves the workability and compressive strength of mortar jobs by reducing the amount of water needed.

DEHSCOFIX® 158

Sodium naphthalene sulphonate condensate. Improves workability and compressive strength of mortar jobs by reducing the amount of water needed.

DEHSCOFIX® 161

Sodium naphthalene sulphonate condensate. Improves workability and compressive strength of mortar jobs by reducing the amount of water needed.
