Sikament - 163


High Range Water - Reducing


Sikament 163 is used as a highly effective water-reducing agent and

superplasticizer for the production of high quality concrete in hot climates.
The dual action of Sikament-163 promotes accelerated hardening with high
early and ultimate strengths.
Complies with A.S.T.M. C 494-92 Type F


As a superplasticizer, Sikament -163 is used for flowing concrete in :

Slabs and foundations
Walls and columns
Slender components with densely packed reinforcement
Beams and ceilings
As a substantial water-reducing agent, Sikament-163 is used where high early
and ultimate strength is required, for example in :
Prestressed concrete elements
Concrete elements manufactured in precast factories, where rapid demoulding
and early load application is required
Bridges and centilever structures


Sikament-163 provides the following properties :

Substantial improvement in workability without increased water content
Normal set without retardation
Accelerated hardening after setting
Significant increase of early and ultimate strengths
Especially suitable for concreting at elevated temperatures
Increased watertightnes
Improved surface finish
Reduced shrinkage and creep
Chloride-free, does not attack reinforcement.


0.6 % - 1.5 % by weight of cement

It is advisable to carry out trial mixes to establish the exact dosage rate required.
Sikament-163 is compatible with all types of Portland cement, including S.R.C.


Sikament-163 can be added to the gauging water prior to its addition to the dry
aggregates or separately to the freshly mixed concrete (on the batching plant
or on site into the truck mixer). Where added to truck mixer on site, further
mixing for five minutes should be carried out.

Special Note

Accidental overdosing of Sikament-163 causes an extension of the initial set

however, no excessive amount of additional air will be entrained.
