    ​​​MasterPolyheed 8195

    New generation mid-range water reducer with Suretec (super retention technology)

    How does MasterPolyheed 8195 work?

    MasterPolyheed 8195 is a non-chloride, robust, specially formulated polycarboxylate ether based mid-range water reducing admixture (MWR). It has been developed for all types of premix, precast and in-situ concrete (including post-tensioned applications) and contributes significantly to improve the fresh and hardened properties of concrete.  MasterPolyheed 8195 meets the requirements for mid-range water reducing admixtures according to AS 1478.1-2000, Type MWR.

    Recommended uses:
    • All types of concrete (25 – 50 MPa) in the mid-range workability band (100 - 150mm slump) requiring workability retention (~ 60 – 120 min) without excessive retardation 
    • Precast concrete
    • Post tensioned concrete applications
    • Improving the performance of pumped concrete, shotcrete and conventionally placed concrete 
    • “Green” concrete mixes with high % of SCM’s
    • Use in architectural concrete, especially where off-form and/or surface finish is critical

    What makes MasterPolyheed 8195 a unique solution?

    MasterPolyheed 8195 is a versatile admixture able to produce and maintain mid-range slumps for extended periods without retardation. Its unique formulation is able to improve the rheology and finishability of concrete.

    What are the benefits of MasterPolyheed 8195?

    • Normal setting characteristics throughout the recommended dose range 
    • Reduced segregation, particularly in lean mixes and mid-slump concrete 
    • Superior slump retention
    • Improved workability and pumpability 
    • Reduced water content for a given workability 
    • Enhanced finishability improving finished appearance
    • No added chlorides, thus conforming to the most stringent chloride ion limits including AS3600 
    • Increased strength – compressive, flexural and bond (concrete to steel) 
    • Increased durability (e.g. permeability, water- tightness) 
    • Reduced cracking 
    • Neutral effect on drying shrinkage
