Description Ozone AEA is a chloride free air-entraining and water reducing admixture based on synthetic surfactant
and special polymer. Ozone AEA acts at the interface between the mixing water and cement/aggregate
particles to produce microscopic air bubbles, which are evenly distributed throughout the concrete. The
entrained air enhances durability by protecting the rapid temperature changes found in
freezing and thawing conditions and with the use of de-icing salts.
Primary Application Roads and bridge decks, airport runways and taxiways, and other concrete exposed to potential
frost damage.
To improve cohesion and workability of concrete mixes where poorly graded aggregates must be
used and bleeding, segregation, or sand runs occur.
Advantage Air entrainment increases the resistance of concrete to attack by frost and de-icing salts, reducing
problems of surface scaling and concrete failure.
Entrained air bubbles assist in the formation of a stable cohesive mix, reducing segregation and
Air entrainment improves workability and helps produce a dense, uniform, close textured surface
free from gravel nests and sand runs, further enhancing durability.
Excellent air bubble stability allows use with a wide range of aggregate qualities and mix conditions.
Typical dosage levels are higher than for standard air-entraining admixtures, allowing increased
accuracy of dosing and better control in critical situations.
Synthetic basis reduces the potential for incompatibility problems during dispensing of admixture

Packaging 210 Ltr. drums, 1000 Ltr. totes and bulk.
Storage Store in a dry and cool place below 35°C. Protect from direct sunlight.
Shelf life 12 months if stored properly in original unopened packaging.
Appearance Brown liquid
Specific gravity 1.14 at 20°C
Chloride content Nil to BS 5075
Instruction for use Dosage: 0.4-0.8 Ltr/100kg of cement. It is advisable to carry out trial mixes to establish the exact dosage
rate required.
Dispensing: Ozone AEA should be added to gauging water before its addition to the dry mix concrete or
separately to the freshly mixed concrete. When added separately to the freshly mixed concrete further
mixing time of 2-3 minutes should be given.
Placing: The standard rules of good concreting practice for production and placing must be observed
when using Ozone AEA concrete.
Curing: Fresh concrete must be cured properly. Use Ozone Curecrete or wet hessian.
Compatibility: Ozone AEA is compatible with all types of cement.
Effect of overdosing: When accidental overdosing occurs, the retardation of initial set air content and
workability increases. During this period the concrete must be kept moist to prevent premature
drying out.
Technical Support Ozone offers technical support, services to consultants, end-users, and contractors. We also provide
technical assistance on site.
Cleaning & Disposal All tools and equipment should be washed with water immediately after use. Do not dispose of into the water
or soil but according to local regulations.
Precautions/Limitations Do not allow freezing. Shake well before use.
Health & safety In case of contact with the skin, wash immediately with soap and water, In case of contact with the eyes rinse
immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. If swallowed seek medical attention
immediately, do not induce vomiting. Skin barrier cream, safety goggles, and rubber gloves are
