​Master X-Seed STE - Strength-Enhancing Admixture

How does Master X-Seed STE work?

Master X-Seed STE is a patent-pending, strength enhancing admixture that improves both early and late-age strength development in concrete, while supporting sustainable construction. Master X-Seed STE admixture is based on a unique technology that facilitates improved cement hydration, thus enhancing strength development.

The strength-enhancing property of Master X-Seed STE admixture permits a reduction in the total cementitious material content of a given concrete mixture while maintaining compressive strength development equivalent to that of reference concrete, with associated benefits in CO2 reduction.

What are the recommended uses of Master X-Seed STE?

  • Green Sense Concrete
  • Ready-mixed Concrete
  • Pre-stressed Concrete
  • Precast Concrete
  • Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC)

What are the features and benefits of Master X-Seed STE?

  • Improves cement hydration
  • Increases strength development - both early (1-day) and late-age (28-day)
  • Enhances workability of high-performance concrete mixtures
  • Provides a strength safety factor and/or expanded performance space
  • Reduces in-place concrete costs when utilized in optimized concrete mixtures.
  • Permits higher replacement levels of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs)
  • Permits earlier stripping and reuse of forms
  • Helps reduce CO2 emissions associated with concrete
