MasterCell 50

Foaming agent for concrete

How does MasterCell 50 work?

MasterCell 50 admixture is a ready-to-use, self-contained product for use in various regular Controlled Low Strength Materials (CLSM) or flowable fill applications where reduced densities (unit weights) and air contents of up to 35% are desired.

What is MasterCell 50 used for?

MasterCell 50 produced CLSM can be used in any application in lieu of compacted soil/fill. MasterCell 50 is used in CLSM mixes to lower the density (unit weight), eliminate settlement, and to control strength development. MasterCell 50 can be used in the following applications:

  • Backfill (flowable fill) - sewer trenches, utility trenches, bridge abutments, retaining walls, and conduit trenches.
  • Structural Fill - foundation sub-bases, floor slab bases, pipe bedding.

What are the benefits of MasterCell 50?

MasterCell 50 produces stable air contents of 15 to 35%. CLSM (flowable fill) produced with MasterCell 50 offers the user the following:

  • Reduced water content by as much as 50%
  • Increases yield
  • Optimum workability can be produced in either fluid or plastic consistency
  • Increases pumpability
  • Little or no bleeding
  • No segregation
  • Reduced shrinkage
  • Reduced settlement
  • Control of strength development
  • Cost effective compared to in place cost of compacted soil
