MasterGlenium ACE 457 - Essential component of ZERO ENERGY SYSTEM – A new generation of high-performance polycarboxylate ether (PCE) superplasticizers for the Precast industry
MasterGlenium ACE 457 (Admixture Controlled Energy) consists of a range of innovative superplasticizers based on newly developed polycarboxylate ether polymers. The particular molecular configuration of MasterGlenium ACE 457 accelerates the cement hydration by exposing increased surface of the cement grains to react with water.
As a result, it is possible to obtain earlier development of the heat of hydration, rapid development of the hydration products and, as a consequence, higher strengths at very early age. The polymer structure of MasterGlenium ACE 457 is specially designed to improve the rheology of precast concrete, making it very flowable and low viscous even at very low water/cement ratios, without increasing stickiness. Robustness is a distinctive feature of the precast concrete produced with MasterGlenium ACE 457.
Where is MasterGlenium ACE 457 applied?
MasterGlenium ACE 457 is suitable for making precast concrete elements with highly-fluid concrete without segregation but low water cement ratio and, consequently, high early and final strengths. MasterGlenium ACE 457 may be used in combination with RheoMATRIX for producing advanced self-compacting concrete like Smart Dynamic Concrete (SDC, latest Vtype SCC), without the aid of vibration, for economic, ecological and ergonomic precast production.
What are the advantages of MasterGlenium ACE 457?
MasterGlenium ACE 457 offers the following benefits for the precast concrete industry:
- Production of highly flowable, robust selfcompacting
concrete having a low water
cement ratio along with an optimal rheology
- Enhanced robustness and consistency in
concrete quality with low stickiness
- Environmentally friendly, CO2 reduced mixdesign
Elimination of heat curing
- Improved surface appearance
- Durable precast concrete elements as per EN
- Elimination of the energy required for placing,
compaction and curing (ZERO ENERGY)
- Optimization of the curing cycles by reducing
curing time or curing temperature
- Increased productivity
