MasterPolyheed 1020: Mid-range water-reducing concrete admixture provides enhanced later-age strength

Formerly: PolyHeed 1020

How does MasterPolyheed 1020 work?

MasterPolyheed 1020 admixture is a patent-pending ready-to-use mid-range water-reducing admixture. MasterPolyheed 1020 admixture is very effective in producing concrete with different levels of workability and with enhanced finishing characteristics. MasterPolyheed 1020 admixture meets ASTM C 494/C 494M requirements for Type A, water-reducing, and Type F, high-range water-reducing, admixtures.

Recommended uses:

  • All concrete applications where superior workability, pumpability and finishability qualities are desired, in particular, flatwork, pumped concrete and pervious concrete
  • Concrete containing manufactured sand and harsh concrete mixtures

What are the unique features of MasterPolyheed 1020?

  • Based on MasterGlenium technology
  • Dosage flexibility – provides up to 20% water reduction
  • Reduced water content for a given level of workability
  • Provides better slump retention
  • Provides excellent workability
  • Enhanced later-age strength
  • Provides excellent finishability, even with manufactured sands and in lean mixtures

What are the benefits of MasterPolyheed 1020?

  • Can be used in a wide variety of concrete mixtures as a multi-purpose admixture meeting the performance requirements for ASTM Type A or Type F admixtures
  • Faster setting at higher dosages compared to other mid-range water-reducing admixtures
  • Enhanced concrete flowability, strength and durability
  • Reduces effort required to finish
  • Provides lower in-place cost
  • Increases service life of structures
