Cementitious Systems

Bisley & Company market Lithium Compounds to the concrete admixture, drymix, shot-crete and flooring compound industries in Australia, New Zealand, Middle East and Asia. The lithium ion ( Li+ , in several forms) is capable of suppressing deleterious Alkali Silica Reactivity (ASR),  which is a major concrete durability issue in many parts of the world. More information on Lithium use in ASR prevention is available on the AASHTO (American Association of State Highway & Transport Officials) website.

Lithium Carbonate and Li Hydroxide are used as accelerators in specialised concrete applications. LifeTech Superfines is a Lithium Carbonate-based chemical admixture that can be used to adjust and accelerate the setting time of high-alumina cements (HAC) and alumina-portland cement blends.  Its fine particle size and narrow particle size distribution assure controllable, uniform and predictable rates of reaction.

Lithium admixtures can be either aqueous (such as Lithium Nitrate solution and Lithium Hydroxide Solution) or in powder form, such as Lithium Hydroxide Monohydrate, and Lithium Carbonate.
