Micro-Aid CSE is a powdered additive that will increase the early and ultimate compressive strength of cementitious grout or concrete. Micro-Aid CSE improves strength and workability by acting as a water reducer and is thixotropic for easy and controlled placement. Micro-Aid CSE compensates for shrinkage by eliminating bleed water in most mix designs. The high early strength expedites the installation of post-tensioned cables in prestressed grout, tiebacks and soil or rock anchors. Micro-Aid CSE densifies the grout and reduces its permeability. Micro-Aid CSE meets the requirements of a Type S, specific performance admixture according to ASTM C 494.
