MasterSet - Concrete setting-time adjusters.

How does MasterSet work?

The MasterSet product family is a comprehensive range of admixtures that allow concrete producers to modify the setting time of concrete according to their specific project needs.

What makes MasterSet a unique solution?

Depending on the product selected, MasterSet supplies admixtures that enhance acceleration or retardation as well as hydration controlling products that are ideal for the stabilization of long haul concrete.

The MasterSet range consists of:

  • Ready to use setting-time retarders that increase concrete setting time for a more uniform and predictable quality concrete that facilitates placing and finishing.
  • Setting time accelerators that decrease concrete setting time, improving early concrete strength and finishing characteristics.
  • Our system of innovative hydration controlling admixtures that control cement hydration, providing a economical alternative for dealing with slump loss, and allowing for returned plastic concrete or concrete wash water to be reused or recycled.

Having the right admixture partner is vital for success.

The MasterSet product family comes with the Master Builders Solutions technical support team from BASF. By listening to our customers and working closely with them we are able to introduce new and exciting products and develop specific solutions for the most efficient and cost-effective concrete production.
