Air entraining admixture

•CHRYSO®Air AE is an air entraining agent creating stable microscopic air bubbles in concrete and mortar.
•CHRYSO®Air AE protects the concrete effectively against frost / defrost cycles and the action of defrosting salts.

Application domain

  • All cement types
  • Concrete exposed to freeze thaw
  • Extruded concrete
  • Dams
  • Marine construction
  • Reservoirs
  • Optimisation of coarse sand particle size distribution
  • Motorway slabs
  • Airport runways


•CHRYSO®Air AE creates a matrix of stable, evenly distributedair bubbles in both the fresh and hydrated system employed.
In fresh concrete, CHRYSO®Air AE also has a plasticisingeffect. It limits the amount of segregation and reduces or eveneliminates bleeding.
Using CHRYSO®Air AE prevents many compatibility problemsbetween cement / sand / admixtures.
Its highly effective action ensures its compatibility with all typesif superplasticizers, and especially with CHRYSO®Omega,CHRYSO®Optima and . CHRYSO®Premia ranges.
•CHRYSO®Air AE improve workability – the micro air bubblesentrained act as ball bearings, lubricating the mix.
