MasterEase® admixture for low-viscosity concrete now available in Vietnam
- New generation of concrete admixture significantly improves rheological properties of concrete
- Improved concrete mix stability facilitates easier pumping and placing of concrete
HCMC, Vietnam – June 21, 2016 – Master Builders Solutions today launched MasterEase®, a next-generation admixture for low-viscosity concrete, for the Vietnam market. The new admixture range improves the rheological properties and the stability of high-performance concrete.
This new generation of polymers reduces the plastic viscosity of concrete by up to 30 percent. In addition, it reduces the time and effort for pumping and placement of concrete, making installation much easier and faster.
"Innovation is an important driver for our long-term growth. We collaborate with our customers to continuously work on new products and solutions as well as innovative technologies. With the launch of MasterEase, we are offering our most advanced and globally approved products in Vietnam to support our customers in overcoming construction challenges and to realize their projects," said Arnold De Silva, Head of Master Builders Solutions Vietnam.
Concrete producers and users will benefit in many ways from the new technology, which is flexible and can be adapted to challenging situations such as temperature and material variations. It is particularly suitable for concrete mixes which are designed and optimized for advanced engineering properties and sustainability. High-strength concrete with low water/cement ratios, as well as mixes with higher levels of secondary cementitious materials reduce the CO2 footprint. MasterEase makes it easier to produce and place those concrete mixes and this helps engineers and investors to improve sustainability ratings of their projects.
During the launch, a demonstration of the advantages of MasterEase was arranged for almost 100 invited guests to experience the quality of the new technology up-close.
