How does MasterSure 1008 work?

MasterSure 1008 is an innovative new generation polycarboxylate ether based slump retaining aid with super retention technology.  Additionally, it can help the ready-mixed / precast concrete industries, where more than normal slump retention and durability are required, particularly in hot climates.

Recommended uses:

  • Super slump retaining concrete with equal or less water content than conventional admixtures
  • Faster mixing aids logistics during large pours
  • Highly flowable concrete
  • Highly durable concrete
  • Ready-mixed concrete
  • Precast concrete
  • Mass concrete
  • Long distance transport
  • Pumped concrete
  • Hot weather concreting 

What are the unique features of  MasterSure 1008?

MasterSure 1008 is a specifically tailored, stand-alone product, the constituents of its active ingredient exhibiting unique adsorption characteristics to cement.  The excellent dispersion effect makes MasterSure 1008 the ideal aid for the ready-mixed concrete / precast concrete industry, without affecting concrete setting times. The ability to work over a range of water binder ratios including low w/b ratios and still obtain extended slump retention allows for the manufacture of high quality concrete.
