MasterGlenium SKY 8612 – Superplasticizing and viscosity modifying admixture for Smart Dynamic Concrete
What is MasterGlenium SKY 8612?
MasterGlenium SKY 8612 is a polycarboxlyate ether (PCE) based superplasticiser to provide low fines self-consolidating concrete for everyday use. This superplasticiser contains an essential component, MasterMatrix, which is a breakthrough and revolutionary viscosity modifying admixture (VMA) from Master Builders Solutions.
How does MasterGlenium SKY 8612 work?
MasterGlenium SKY 8612 offers a quantum leap in concrete robustness allowing for flowability and stability of concrete at the same time. The self-consolidating nature of Smart Dynamic Concrete requires no vibration making the process of concrete placement fast and effective. MasterGlenium SKY 8612 is free of chlorides, and is compatible with all cements meeting the ASTM standards.
What makes MasterGlenium SKY 8612 a unique solution?
A combination of viscosity modifying agent with tailor-made polycarboxylate ether, MasterGlenium SKY 8612 improves cement dispersion to give a matrix-like structure which distributes the liquid cement evenly and enhances segregation resistance. MasterGlenium SKY 8612 is able to substantially increase the plastic viscosity of concrete, while maintaining a limited increase in the yield value thereby reducing its sensitivity to water variation.
A new generation of highly fluid concretes that makes high rise construction possible
MasterGlenium SKY 8612 improves the rheology of a concrete mix even at very low water/cement ratios making it easier to pump. It can impact pumping pressures and allow concretes to be pumped to record heights, whilst maintaining plastic properties. Considering pumping pressures and concrete mix consistency are critical for high-rise construction, the superior slump retention property of MasterGlenium SKY 8612 allows concrete mix easy to produce and transport. Customers benefit from reduced wear on the pump and pipeline whilst having the confidence of a consistent concrete during placement.
MasterGlenium SKY 8612 is low in permeability. It helps in achieving greater durability for the building structures through reduction of permeability, water absorption and resistance to chloride and sulphate attack. It minimizes the risk of non-structural cracks and lower long term shrinkage.
