MasterPolyheed N: Mid-range water-reducing admixture

Formerly: PolyHeed N

How does MasterPolyheed N work?

MasterPolyheed N admixture is a multi-component, chloride-bearing, mid-range, water-reducing admixture. MasterPolyheed N admixture meets ASTM C 494/C 494M requirements for Type A, 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 N?

  • True mid-range (5-15%) water reduction and excellent performance across a wide concrete slump range, especially the difficult slump range of 5-8 in. (125-200 mm)
  • Reduced water content for a given slump
  • Superior workability, pumpability and finishability qualities even in concrete mixtures containing low amounts of cementitious materials
  • Normal concrete setting time throughout the recommended dosage range
  • Improved performance with a wide range of cements, fly ashes, silica fume, slag cement, and aggregates (including coarse and manufactured sands)

What are the benefits of MasterPolyheed N?

  • Superior workability and pumpability in various concrete applications
  • Superior finishing characteristics for residential/commercial flatwork and formed surfaces
  • Significantly reduced placement and finishing time resulting in lower in-place concrete costs
