MasterPolyheed 3169 - Polycarboxylic ether based superplasticizer for the production of high quality ready-mix concrete

How does MasterPolyheed 3169 work?

MasterPolyheed 3169 is an innovative latest generation superplasticizer based on polycarboxylic ether (PCE) polymers, and is specially engineered for ready-mix concrete. 

MasterPolyheed 3169 is differentiated from conventional superplasticisers, such as those based on sulphonated naphthalene formaldehyde condensate 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. 

Where can MasterPolyheed 3169 be applied?

MasterPolyheed 3169 is used for the production of high quality ready-mix concrete. 

What are the advantages of MasterPolyheed 3169?
