Dichtament DM is an integral waterproofing admixture for concrete with good plasticizing properties and also free from chlorides. The addition of Dichtament DM in the concrete results to a homogenous form by even dispersion of cement particles which prevents the likely settlement of heavy course aggregates and bleeding formation. It also brings contraction of capillaries and thereby rendering the concrete dense and waterproofing. Addition of Dichtament DM in concrete mix allows the reduction of about 15% mixing water without changing the workability of the composition. This property makes it possible to control water-cement ratio as low and increase density of concrete rendering the concrete watertight. It is used for the preparation of water tight concrete employed in the construction of water retaining structures, sanitary rooms, concrete roofs, basements, tunnels, tanks, swimming pools, etc.
