Compatibility with Other Admixtures

Most water reducers or water-reducing retarders are compatible with ADVA 223 as long as they are added separately to the concrete.

Caution should be exercised when using ADVA 223 with a retarder, as excessive retardation can occur if the admixture dosages are too high. Pre-testing of the concrete should be performed to optimise dosages and addition times of these admixtures. The admixtures should not be in contact with each other before they enter the concrete.
