    ​​Master X-Seed 1500

    Master X-Seed 1500 is the hardening/accelerating admixture for concrete and shotcrete designed to boost the hydration process of early-age cement.

    How does Master X-Seed 1500 work?

    Master X-Seed 1500 promotes concrete hardening at low, ambient, and even heat-curing temperatures. X-Seed’s innovative crystal seeding technology, accelerates the growth ofMaster X-Seed 1500 Calcium Silicate Hydrate crystals, increasing the hydration process of early-age cement (6-12 hours).
    Master X-Seed 1500 complies with AS1478.1-2000 Type SAc Special Purpose Accelerating.

    Recommended Uses of Master X-Seed 1500

    Master X-Seed 1500 is optimised for shotcrete & structural precast elements where high early strength development is a key success factor for the concrete producer.
    Master X-Seed 1500 is an innovate alternative to heat curing and also supports the use of binders with lower clinker content.

    What are the unique features of the Master X-Seed 1500?

    Master X-Seed 1500 is the essential component of Master Builders Solutions Crystal Speed Hardening (CSH) concept. CHS and Master X-Seed together provide: 
    • 10% reduction in CO2 output
    • 15% lower energy costs
    • 50% faster concrete hardening. 

    What are the benefits of Master X-Seed 1500?

    Beneficial across a wide array of uses and industries, Master X-Seed 1500 has been developed to ensure a number of invaluable benefits. These include:
    • ​Early strength acceleration at low, ambient and heat curing temperatures
    • Improved rheology
    • Earlier re-entry times with shotcrete
    • Flexible adjustment of production capacities
    • Increased production cycles (double, triple rotation)
    • Better use of formwork by earlier de-moulding
    • Reduction/elimination of heat curing
    • Reduced investment and running cost of curing
    • Allows use of minimum required cement quantities
    • Allows for the optimisation of concrete by using less clinker-containing cement
    • Increase utilisation of supplementary cementitious materials
    • Lower risk of delayed ettringite formation
    • Reduced water absorption
    • Improved concrete durability aspects
    • Improved plant and product eco-efficiency by reducing CO2 emissions.

    If you’re interested in improving the quality and absorption of your cement mixes, Master X-Seed 1500 is the ideal solution.
