AFX-100® is a pure flash calcined alumina (FCA), uased as a set accelerator in Portland-based cement applications.
At the relatively low dosages between 3,5 and 5% depending on the formulation and desired effect, setting times
can be reduced from several hours to several minutes.
Contrary to the alternative AFX-50®, AFX-100® is purely aimed at the acceleration of setting times and will have little
to no impact on other characteristics of the product.
AFX-100® can be applied at very low dosages, making it a lot easier to apply in existing formations than other alternatives
such as special cements, which will often require a much higher dosage and the addition of other additives such as retarders.
- Highly reactive
- Significantly accelerated setting times
- Low dosages (<5%)
- Easily applied in formulations
