MasterFinish SLB 101
Water-reducing admixture for industrial concrete floor slabs with power-floated finishes
Power floating heavy-duty flooring slabs results in a smooth, dense and level surface finish. Using the right admixture can help to maximise durability while achieving the desired finish. MasterFinish SLB 101, the first product in the new MasterFinish SLB range, has been formulated specifically to produce concrete optimised for industrial flooring, particularly when a power-floated finish is needed, with or without a dry-shake topping.
How does MasterFinish SLB 101 work?
This innovative mid-range water-reducing admixture uses state-of-the-art polymer technology to produce high-quality concrete without negatively impacting its setting characteristics. Its formulation minimises the concrete's air content, so the possibility of subsequent air content reduces significantly. Using MasterFinish SLB 101 involves only a minimal increase in the setting-time characteristics, compared to an equivalent concrete without an admixture.
What is MasterFinish SLB 101 used for?
MasterFinish SLB 101 is ideal for the following applications:
- Concrete flooring requiring a power float finish.
- Concretes where dry-shake toppings will be used
- To achieve cement economies
- To increase compressive strength.
What makes MasterFinish SLB 101 different?
This admixture’s dosage flexibility allows a water reduction of up to 20%, producing a dense concrete with reduced permeability and reduced water penetration. It has a minimal impact on setting time, with the benefits of enhanced later-age strength and excellent finishability. MasterFinish SLB 101 improves the cohesive properties of the concrete and helps to reduce segregation and bleed, making it suitable for a wide range of concrete mixtures as a multi-purpose admixture.
