Air void management

AirVoid Management

A breath of fresh air


Air plays a critical role in the performance of concrete—both in a positive and in a negative sense.


Air has a significant impact on the performance of concrete – in both positive and negative terms. The manufacturing process of concrete generally requires mixing with water. The application of shear force combined with surfactant components in the concrete mix leads to the distribution and stabilization of air in the fresh concrete

Air in the right quantity and in the right form is essential for the end properties of cement based materials and has a direct impact on the

  • Workability

  • Mechanical properties

  • Durability

  • Aesthetics

  • Yield

  • Insulating properties

  • Weight reduction

Our air entrainers and defoamers can actively control the quantity, the distribution and the size of the air voids in the concrete – we call this AirVoid Management.
