Low Clinker Concrete
Reducing the clinker content in concrete is an important sustainability goal in the construction industry, as clinker production is a major source of carbon dioxide emissions. Various admixture solutions can be employed to optimize the performance of low-clinker concrete while maintaining or improving its properties.

Also known as mid-range water reducers, are a type of concrete admixture that falls between standard water reducers and high-range water reducers (superplasticizers) in terms of dosage requirements and performance characteristics. These admixtures are specifically designed to provide a balance between workability and water reduction, offering better flow without the extreme fluidity associated with high-range superplasticizers.MasterEase 3925 - Water reducing admixture, with enhanced rheological performance.MasterFinish SLB 101 - Water-reducing admixture for industrial concrete floor slabs with power-floated finishes.MasterGlenium 123 - Mid-range water-reducing admixture for concrete.MasterPolyheed 410 - Mid-range water-reducing admixture for concrete.MasterPolyheed 415 - Mid-range water-reducing admixture for concrete.
Plasticizers are a type of concrete admixture used to improve the workability and performance of concrete mixes. They are added to the concrete during mixing to reduce the water-to-cement ratio without sacrificing the material's workability. This results in a more flowable and easier-to-handle concrete mix.MasterPozzolith 324N - Water-reducing plasticizing admixture for concrete.MasterRehobuild 375 - Water reducing plasticizing admixture for concrete.
In concrete technology retention superplasticizers usually refers to a type of superplasticizer that provides extended slump retention without compromising the other desirable properties of the concrete. Slump retention refers to the ability of the fresh concrete to maintain a certain level of workability over an extended period. This is particularly valuable in large construction projects, complex structures, or situations where logistical challenges may cause delays in the placement of concrete.MasterEase 3820 - High range water reducing superplasticizing admixture for concrete combining both enhanced consistence retention & rheology performance.MasterSure 1970 - A consistence retaining admixture for concrete.MasterSure 958 - High range water reducing/superplasticizing admixture for concrete with extended consistence retention.
Air-entraining admixtures are specialized concrete additives that introduce microscopic air bubbles into the concrete mix. These air bubbles serve various purposes, and the resulting air-entrained concrete exhibits improved durability and resilience, particularly in freezing and thawing conditions. Properly air-entrained concrete is more resistant to cracking and scaling caused by the expansion of water during freezing conditions.
Accelerators are concrete admixtures designed to speed up the setting and early strength development of concrete. Accelerators are valuable in situations where the construction timeline needs to be expedited, such as in cold weather or when there's a need for rapid strength development. Additionally, the choice of accelerator should be based on project-specific requirements and considerations, including temperature, exposure conditions, and desired performance characteristics.MasterSet AC 555 - Set accelerating admixture for concrete.Master X-Seed 100 - Set and hardening accelerating admixture for concrete.
Retarders are concrete admixtures designed to slow down the setting time of concrete. They are particularly useful in situations where there is a need to extend the working time of the concrete or when delays in placement and finishing are expected. Retarders offer flexibility in concrete placement, especially in situations where the construction schedule may be affected by logistical challenges or when a deliberate delay in setting time is needed.MasterSet R 510 - A set retarding admixture for mortar and concrete. MasterSet DELVO 122 - Hydration control admixture for zero waste concrete.
Viscosity modifiers, also known as rheology-modifying admixtures or workability-retaining admixtures, are concrete additives designed to control the rheological properties of concrete, particularly its viscosity and flow characteristics. Viscosity modifiers are valuable in situations where maintaining the workability and pumpability of concrete is critical. Their use can result in more efficient concrete placement, reduced labour requirements, and improved overall construction quality.MasterMatrix SDC 100 - High-performance viscosity modifying agent (VMA) for fluid concrete.MasterMatrix SDC 150 - High-performance viscosity modifying agent (VMA) for fluid concrete.
Additives for Dry Silo
Admixtures for dry silo mortar refer to chemical formulations added to pre-mixed dry mortar products stored in silos. These admixtures are designed to enhance various properties of the mortar, such as workability, setting time, and durability. Admixtures play a key role in optimizing the properties of dry silo mortar, contributing to improved workability, durability, and overall construction quality.
