MasterGlenium SKY 3888 - A latest generation high-performance polycarboxylate ether (PCE) superplasticizer for the Readymix industry when extended workability retention is required
How does it work?
MasterGlenium SKY 3888 consists of a blend
of innovative patented latest generation modified
polycarboxylate ether polymers. The particular
molecular configuration allows
MasterGlenium SKY 3888 to firstly give a high
level of water reduction and secondly extended
workability retention up to several hours. The
polymer structure of MasterGlenium SKY 3888
is also specially designed to improve rheology of
concrete, making it flowable and less viscous
even at very low water/cement ratios.
Robustness is a distinctive feature of concrete
produced with MasterGlenium SKY 3888.
What is it used for?
MasterGlenium SKY 3888 is suitable for
producing highly-fluid concrete for piling and
diaphragm wall construction. Concrete remains
stable without segregation or bleed at low water
cement ratios with high ultimate strength.
MasterGlenium SKY 3888 may be used in
combination with MasterMatrix 110 to improve
mix stability such as when producing Self
Compacting Concrete (SCC) or Smart Dynamic
Concrete (SDC) that is placed without the use of
vibration giving economic, ecological and
ergonomic concrete production.
What are the benefits?
The ready-mix producer:
• Capability of delivering high
performance concrete to the job site.
• Production of concrete with low water
cement ratios with excellent workability
• Single product for many application
The contractor / applicator:
• Easier placing and faster strength
• Extended working live for mass concrete
of were placing is slow or delayed.
• Improved concrete surfaces finish.
• Insurance that concrete meets original
• High quality durable concrete.
