AUXILIARY ADDITIVE: INCREMENT TIXO
Increment Tixo is a special additive for cellular concrete, the result of Isoltech research and experience, in order to:
- avoid the typical dripping after laying of lightweight concrete (anti-percolating properties)
- avoid the deterioration of the structural or finishing products (such as wood or plasterboard)
- increase the viscosity in case of laying on a slope (viscosifying properties)
- accelerate the hardening of the screed to speed up walkability (accelerant properties)
- useful in all cases where the product should not flow away easily into cavities
To be added to the water-cement before or after the foam, at an amount between 8 and 12 kg per cubic metre. Increment Tixo specially is formulated to meet the specific needs of construction sites and is pumped with only 140-145 litres/mᵌ of water, thereby reducing the normal water/cement ratio of the material. Its fundamental physical properties are:
|Physical Properties||Increment Tixo|
|Specific Weight||0,90 kg/litro|
Increment Tixo is sold in 25 kg bags or big bags.

Le principali applicazioni di Increment Tixo
Increment Tixo allows the creation of cellular concrete screeds in the renovation of residential properties that are therefore not waterproof. The density of the material, after finalising the formula according to the system used, the cement and mixing, makes the use of cellophane unnecessary.
Increment Tixo allows the laying of cellular concrete laying in situations where water is a critical aspect, given the presence of water-sensitive materials and materials that bear limited structural loads. In effect, lightweight concrete has a lower specific weight than other materials which, despite being heavier and more expensive, are laid in moist earth consistence.
Increment Tixo is useful in roofing and filling sloping terraces, viscously retaining the material. Useful in all cases where the product should not flow away easily.
In every situations where it is necessary to accelerate the hardening of the material to allow further work. After laying a lightweight concrete substrate, with Increment Tixo it is already possible to work in the first half of the following week, depending on the season of course.
