Recommendations:
Based on the above observations for Workability and Retardation in Setting times [IST
and FST] it can comfortably be concluded that Liquid Admixture Sikament 600 HP/2
[APL] suits our requirements and the dosage of the Admixture shall be kept as 0.90% of
Weight of Cement irrespective of the grade of Mix.
The Compressive strength at the age of 7 days and 28 days shall be made available on
09.10.2008 and 30.10.2008 respectively for the trials conducted with various dosages of
liquid admixture.

Conclusion:
