Cement Accelerators

Cement setting times can be significantly reduced by use of accelerators in the formulation. Accelerators speed up the time required for a cement paste to become hardened in a reaction process known as cement hydration whereby water induces chemical reactions that create the phases in cement which are linked setting and strength . Accelerators essentially speed the reaction with water, which in turn reduces setting times and increases early age compressive strength development. Reduction of set times and improved early age strengths can be effectively utilised to produce fast setting systems such as rapid set tile adhesives and floor screeds which can be grouted or walked on within 3 hours.

LITHKEM is a powder set accelerator and early age strength enhancer
for Portland and High alumina cement based binder systems.

It is novel blend of inorganic compounds specifically designed to provide rapid set times and high early strengths in dry mortar mixes that are based on Portland cement and Alumina cements binder systems.

Developed in our in house laboratories as an alternative to Lithium based cement accelerators, which are currently subject to rapidly rising prices and reduced availability due to demand from global battery manufacturers.

LITHKEM PLUS is novel blend of inorganic compounds specifically designed to provide rapid set times and high early strengths in dry mortar mixes based on Portland cement blended with Calcium Sulfoaluminate (CSA) cement.

Lithkem Plus has been developed as an alternative to Lithium based cement accelerators, which are currently subject to rapidly rising prices due and reduced availability due to demand from global battery manufacturers.

Lithkem Plus is a fine, free flowing powder which provides homogenous dispersion in bagged cementitious mortars.

LITHKEM PLUS SUPER FINE is novel blend of inorganic compounds specifically designed to provide rapid set times and high early strengths in dry mortar mixes based on Portland cement blended with High Alumina cement (HAC) or Calcium Sulfoaluminate (CSA) cement.

Developed by our chemists in house as an alternative to Lithium based cement accelerators, which are currently subject to rapidly rising prices due and reduced availability due to demand from global battery manufacturers.

The ultra-fine particle size allows improved dispersion within the powder and helps prevent surface spotting on self-levelling floor underlayment’s and screeds.
