SikaGrind®-511 (TH) HYC

Efficient grinding aid and quality improver for hydraulic cement

SikaGrind®-511 (TH)-HYC is a liquid cement grinding aid with performance enhancing properties. SikaGrind®-511 (TH)-HYC has been specifically designed to increase the output of cement grinding mill and obtain improved all age strength development for mortar and concrete.

SikaGrind®-511 (TH)-HYC is a dispersant with the following characteristics:
  • Neutralisation of electrical charges on the surface of the cement particles
  • Reduced agglomeration of ground cement particles (better dispersion)
  • Less coating (accumulation of material) on grinding media and mill internals
  SikaGrind®-511 (TH)-HYC provides the following advantages in the cement production:
  • Enhanced grinding properties of the cement mill due to less accumulation of material on grinding balls and mill-liners
  • Higher separator efficiency due to improved cement particle dispersion
  • Reduced relative power consumption per ton of cement due to increased output of the grinding system (tons per hour)
  • Easier achievement of the desired cement fineness (Blaine, particle fraction > 32μm, granulometry) due to reduced re-agglomeration of the sufficiently ground cement particles
  • Minimized problems with “plugging” due to improved powder flow characteristics
SikaGrind®-511 (TH)-HYC gives the following advantages to the finished cement:
  • Reduced quantity of “over-milled” particles in the cement granulometry
  • Easier discharge of the silos
  • Increased all age strength of mortar and concrete
  • Economic cement design with clinker replacements
