ADVA® is a family of high-range water reducers used in the production of ready mix, precast and prestressed concrete. In addition to providing excellent water reduction, ADVA® products generate higher compressive strengths, better slump retention, improved rheology, enhanced air control, superior finishability, and robustness across a wide range of materials, including both flowable and self-consolidating concrete.
Complete Concrete Solutions
Essential solutions for ready mix concrete
We make innovative concrete admixtures to tailor the optimal batch for your most demanding requirements. Engineers choose our admixtures for concrete to build everything from the tallest skyscrapers to the largest infrastructure projects.
Our industry-leading admixtures include:
High-range water reducers and superplasticizers for stronger, more workable concrete
Mid- and low-range water reducers
Shrinkage reducers that protect against cracking
Products that add color or texture to concrete
Our specialty concrete products include:
Set accelerators and set retarders for use in all kinds of weather
Concrete admixtures to reduce cement agglomeration and improve flowability
Finally, our Verifi® In-transit Concrete Management System ensures concrete is always ready to pour at the job site. It's the industry's only complete system to promote the consistent production and delivery of workable, high-performance ready mix concrete.
Innovative materials to make exceptional precast concrete products
For decades, precast producers have counted on our vast portfolio of water reducers and superplasticizers to create strong, durable and resilient precast concrete products. Precasters also rely on our Pieri® in-form and surface retarders to make high-quality precast concrete with finishes that are beautiful and easy to maintain.
At the plant, our AIRtrac™ system allows precasters to measure and control air volume and temperature in real time. The technology lets producers adjust air without work stoppages. It also lowers costs by rejecting fewer batches for defects.
The industry's only complete shotcrete system for underground construction
The TYTRO® shotcrete system is designed to meet the specs and safety requirements of the most complex tunneling and mining projects. TYTRO® products cover the full range of admixtures, including high-range water reducers, superplasticizers and set accelerators, as well as synthetic fibers.
Plus, the TYTRO® system speeds shotcrete placement to save time and money at the job site. TYTRO® solutions help producers make workable shotcrete with:

ADVA® Cast - A high-range water reducing admixture for the precast / prestressed concrete industry
ADVA® Cast is a series of high efficiency, polycarboxylate-based, high-range water-reducing admixtures for the precast/prestressed concrete industry. In addition to providing excellent water reduction, ADVA®Cast products generate higher compressive strengths, better slump retention, improved rheology, enhanced air control, superior finishability, and robustness across a wide range of materials, including both flowable and self-consolidating concrete.
Verifi® In-transit Concrete Management
Verifi® is a patented concrete management system providing sophisticated, automated process monitoring and control during transit from the ready-mix plant to the jobsite. Verifi offers a new level of concrete quality control by enabling monitoring of critical concrete properties and automated addition of water or admixtures to maintain optimum concrete slump control and minimum concrete variability. Verifi helps increase product consistency from one truck to the next—reducing rejected loads, increasing jobsite efficiency and minimizing costly project delays
AIRtrac™ system - Minimize waste and boost precast productivity
Air in concrete, whether entrained or entrapped, can be challenging to manage and lead to undesired results such as low strengths, out-of-spec concrete, bugholes and more. It's time to invest in a new precast technology that lets precasters enjoy consistency and productivity savings at unprecedented levels. Simply put, AIRtrac™ helps precasters get their mix right every time, with minimal waste.
Pieri® - In-form and surface retarders
The Pieri® Architectural Precast Portfolio includes high-quality products such as in-form surface retarders, release agents, and finish protectors that provide beautiful, consistent, long-lasting architectural finishes. Other finishing techniques, such as sandblasting and acid-etching are labor intensive, hazardous, and can produce inconsistent results. When you replace old finishing techniques with Pieri® Architectural Products, the result is a higher-quality finish that saves time, and lasts longer.
TYTRO® - Advanced. Efficient. Reliable.
TYTRO® is a comprehensive admixture system to reduce shotcrete installed costs, minimize excavation downtime and enhance performance. The system consists of macro fibers and admixtures designed to faster achieve early strength, enhance bond to rock substrate and between layers, and deliver high-performance, high-quality shotcrete with minimum rebound and dust.
