MasterGlenium 114AE - New polycarboxylic ether superplasticizer for the production of high quality ready-mix concrete with low water cement ratio and exceptional workability
How does MasterGlenium 114AE work?
MasterGlenium 114AE is an innovative latest generation superplasticizer based on polycarboxylic ether (PCE) polymers, and is specially engineered for ready-mix concrete.
MasterGlenium 114AE is differentiated from conventional superplasticisers, such as those based on sulphonated melamine and naphthalene formaldehyde condesates in that it is based on a unique carboxylic ether polymer with long lateral chains. This greatly improves cement dispersion. At the start of the mixing process the same electrostatic dispersion occurs but the presence of the lateral chains, linked to the polymer backbone, generate a steric hindrance which stabilises the cement particles capacity to separate and disperse. This mechanism provides flowable concrete with greatly reduced water demand.
What are the advantages of MasterGlenium 114AE?
MasterGlenium 114AE offers the following benefits for:
The ready-mix producer:
- Capability of delivering high performance
concrete at any time to the job site in place
- Production of a concrete with low water
cement ratios without loss of workability
- Single product for many application needs
The contractor / applicator:
- Easier placing and faster strength
- Improved concrete surfaces
- Place concrete as specified and ordered from
- Insurance that concrete meets original
- High quality durable concrete
