RussTech carries a full line of normal water reducing concrete admixtures. These products have been designed to enhance strength while reducing mix water.

LC-500 is a normal setting water-reducing admixture for concrete. It is designed to facilitate the placing and finishing of concrete while providing control over set time. LC-500 is also a set retarding admixture beneficial during hot weather concreting operations when control of setting time and maintenance of placeable consistency are essential.


  • Improves quality of concrete by decreasing water-cement ratio
  • Lower inventory costs at batch plant, one product performs dual purpose
  • Increases strengths both compressive and flexural
  • Increases density and relative durability
  • Resists damage caused by freezing and thawing
  • Reduces water content needed for a given workability
  • Reduces cracking and shrinkage
  • Reduces surface bleeding
  • Reduces segregation
  • Improves finishability and workability of concrete
  • Improves pumpability of concrete
  • Maintains slump life during extended mixing times
  • Aids to reduce peak heat of hydration in mass pour concrete- reduces thermal cracking
  • Aids in preventing cold joints
  • Provides variable control of setting time based on dosage rate
