RussTech carries a full line of air entraining concrete admixtures. These products have been specifically designed to introduce stable air matrices into fresh concrete to provide adequate freeze-thaw protection.

RAE-260 is specially formulated for use as an air entraining admixture for concrete. RAE-260 is manufactured under strict quality control standards to insure uniform performance at the job site.


RAE-260 may be used wherever air entrainment is required by concrete specifications. It is particularly useful in:

  • All commercial and residential concrete
  • Mass concrete
  • High cement, low slump paving mixes
  • Mixes with high carbon content fly ash
  • Concrete using high-alkali cement
  • All concrete to be exposed to freezing and thawing conditions


  • Introduces millions of uniformly sized and spaced air voids throughout the concrete which greatly increases freeze/thaw resistance
  • Reduces permeability and enhances the resistance to surface deterioration caused by de-icing chemicals in hardened concrete
  • Requires less water, therefore bleeding is reduced
  • Aids in finishing and produces a more water tight mixture with a lower water-cement ratio
  • Greatly improves the plasticity and workability of the concrete
  • Results in a reduction of segregation and honeycombing with smoother and more even finished surfaces.
