MasterGlenium ACE 415 - A new generation high-performance polycarboxylic ether based superplasticizer for the Precast industry.
MasterGlenium ACE 415 (Admixture Controlled Energy) consists of a range of innovative superplasticizers based on newly developed polycarboxylic ether polymers. The particular molecular configuration of MasterGlenium ACE 415 accelerates the cement hydration by exposing increased surface of the cement grains to react with water.
As a result, it is possible to obtain earlier development of the heat of hydration, rapid development of the hydration products and, as a consequence, higher strengths at very early age.
The polymer structure of MasterGlenium ACE 415 is specially designed to improve the rheology of precast concrete, making it very flowable and low viscous even at very low water/cement ratios, without increasing stickiness. Robustness is a distinctive feature of the precast concrete produced with MasterGlenium ACE 415.
Where is MasterGlenium ACE 415 applied?
MasterGlenium ACE 415 is suitable for making precast concrete elements with normal, high slump or highly-fluid concrete without segregation with a low water cementitious ratio, consequently, high early and final strengths are achieved.
MasterGlenium ACE 415 can also be used in combination with MasterMatrix for producing advanced self-compacting concrete such as Smart Dynamic Concrete (SDC, latest type SCC), without the aid of vibration giving economic, ecological and ergonomic precast production
What are the advantages of MasterGlenium ACE 415?
MasterGlenium ACE 415 offers the following benefits for the precast concrete industry:
