MasterPolyheed 1720: Mid-range water-reducing concrete admixture for higher strength at all ages

Formerly: PolyHeed 1720

How does MasterPolyheed 1720 work?

MasterPolyheed 1720 mid-range water-reducing Admixture, based on the next generation of polycarboxylate technology, utilizes state-of-the-art molecular engineering to provide enhanced concrete performance and value for concrete producers and contractors.

MasterPolyheed 1720 admixture meets ASTM C 494/C 494M compliance 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 1720?

  • Reduced water content for a given level of workability
  • Excellent performance across a wide concrete slump range, especially the difficult slump range of 5-8 in. (125-200 mm)
  • Superior concrete workability, pumpability and finishability qualities even in concrete mixtures containing manufactured sand and low amounts of cementitious materials
  • Faster time of setting at mid to higher dosage rates

What are the benefits of MasterPolyheed 1720?

  • Significantly reduced labor costs for concrete placement and finishing
  • Lower in-place concrete costs
  • Higher strength at all ages
  • Enhanced concrete durability
  • Increases service life of concrete structures
