MasterPozzolith 80: Water-reducing admixture

Formerly: Pozzolith 80

How does MasterPozzolith 80 work?

MasterPozzolith 80 ready-to-use, liquid admixture is used for making more uniform and predictable quality concrete. It meets ASTM C 494/C 494M, Type A, water-reducing admixture, Type B, retarding admixture, and Type D, retarding and water-reducing admixtures.

Recommended uses:

  • Prestressed concrete
  • Precast concrete
  • Reinforced concrete
  • Shotcrete
  • Lightweight concrete
  • Pumped concrete
  • 4x4 Concrete
  • Pervious Concrete
  • Self-consolidating concrete (SCC)

What are the unique features of MasterPozzolith 80?

  • Reduced water content required for a given workability
  • Controlled setting characteristics – normal or retarded

What are the benefits of MasterPozzolith 80?

  • Increased compressive and flexural strengths
  • Improved workability
  • Reduced segregation
  • Flexibility in the scheduling of placing and finishing operations
  • Offsets effects of early stiffening during extended delays between mixing and placing
  • Helps eliminate cold joints
  • Full-form deflection can take place (before concrete sets) in extended pours for bridge decks, cantilevers, nonshored structural elements, etc.
  • Peak temperature and/or rate of temperature rise lowered in mass concrete thereby reducing thermal cracking
