MasterCast 3937 - Impregnation agent for paving stones and other manufactured concrete products (MCP), that provides long-lasting protection of the surface against water, oil and different types of dirt
What is MasterCast 3937?
MasterCast 3937 is an impregnation agent that
has been specifically developed for the application
on dry and semidry concrete elements: paving
stones, flags, etc.
The surface that has been treated with
MasterCast 3937 is water- and oil-repellent and
additionally repels many types of dirt, from
ketchup and mayonnaise, wine and so on.
MasterCast 3937 improves the color brilliancy
and allows for better stability of the color over the
MasterCast 3937 can be sprayed or rolled on the
surface of manufactures concrete products
immediately after their compaction and stripping.
Once applied, the product doesn't require any
special drying or curing treatment: the elements
can be transferred directly to the chamber for
curing, as it is normally done.
By associating to the application of
MasterCast 3937 also the employ of the
MasterCast series of mass admixtures, it is
possible to obtain a TOTAL PROTECTION of the
elements: not only the surface is protected, but
also the whole body of concrete, thereby assuring
improved surface aesthetics in use and minimized
The 4 VALUE concept is based on the 4 values
that are important to the producers of
Manufactured Concrete Products (MCP):
Optimization of the mix design, acceleration of the
production cycle, reduction of scrap.
Performance improvement of the finite elements,
particularly of the splitting tensile strength,
according to the requirements of the European
standards (EN 1338, EN 1339,
EN 1340 etc).
Better surface texture and improved color
Better resistance to freeze-thaw cycles and higher
What is MasterCast 3937 used for?
MasterCast 3937 is suitable for the surface
treatment of paving stones and any other type of
Manufactured Concrete products, i.e. elements
made with dry or semi-dry concrete and
compacted by vibration or vibro-compression.
What are the benefits of MasterCast 3937?
MasterCast 3937 offers the following benefits:
- Resistance to the penetration of different
types of dirt (ketchup, mayonnaise, etc)
- Easy cleaning with water of the surface, after
- Improved color brilliancy
- Superior resistance of the surface from color
- Improved resistance to efflorescence
