VSM / Efficiency / Wearability and dusting

Wearability and dusting

Decreased wear capacity and increased dusting of concrete surfaces is usually caused by reduced durability, which can be a result of sedimentation of concrete mix, excess of water, oversmoothing of surface, violation of the technological procedure.

After VSM is helps eliminate these defects by influencing two aspects simultaneously:

  • Due to even distribution in the mix, VSM discourages sedimentation, contributes to formation of compact homogeneous cement matrix and ensures fuller hydration;
  • VSM being introduced, the surface layer acquires such properties as wearability, strength, water impermeable, free of cracks or other defects.
