Meet challenging project specifications

CHRYSO designs customed products according to your materials and specifications to meet expected performance:

  • Long distance pumpability
  • Long workability retention
  • Water reduction
  • Robustness
  • Cohesive concrete & easy placement

Benefits of the CHRYSO®Optima 1000 series

Benefit from fast and long-distance pumping beyond 1,650ft horizontally and 650ft vertically:

  • Logistics flexibility
  • Shorter truck immobilization: more deliveries per truck
  • Longer equipment service life
  • Greater pumping distances are achievable with equivalent equipment
Concrete workability retention

Achieve 3 to 8 hours workability to meet the needs of complex construction sites (dense urban areas, geographic distances, high temperatures):

  • Consistent slump achievement: quality control facilitated
  • Easy concrete placement despite unpredicted jobsites disturbances
  • Remove the need for concrete retempering on-site limiting quality issues and undesired air entrainment
  • Increase of serviceable market reachable for the concrete plant
Vertical Concrete Pumping

Achieve higher performance and benefit from greater concrete robustness.

  • Enhanced strength achievement at target for faster project completion
  • Further mix design optimization
  • The use of lower grade Supplementary Cementitious Materials.

Complex jobsites require superior tailor-made admixture technologies. The highly adjustable CHRYSO®Optima 1000 concrete admixtures technology answers the requirements of major construction projects.

CHRYSO®Optima 1000 series, an ultra-flexible solution that allows designing with CHRYSO technical experts, the new generation of products to reach high-performance concrete.
