MITCHSET

Set Accelerator

DESCRIPTION

Mitchell’s MitchSet is a liquid set accelerating and early strength gain admixture for concrete. It does not contain any chloride or nitrate ions and can be used for R.C.C. construction. The reactive components in Mitchset react with the cement particles in the mix to accelerate the hardening process thereby leading to an increase in the early strength of concrete.

USE

Mitchset is normally used for cold weather concreting and for applications where a quicker strength gain of concrete is required. Addition of Mitchset to the concrete mix, at specified dosage, accelerates the setting and hardening of the mix and enables an early removal of form work.
