    Concrete Admixtures and Fibers

    Our innovations in admixtures add value and reliability to concrete construction

    Having the right admixture partner is vital to the success of any concrete producer. The Master Builders Solutions brand leads the construction industry as an innovator of advanced products supplied to the ready mix, precast/prestressed, concrete masonry, paving and underground construction markets to improve the placing, pumping, finishing, appearance, performance and sustainability characteristics of concrete. We offer a comprehensive line of high-quality plasticizers to increase concrete productivity, performance and efficiency, as well as complementary admixtures to improve strength, durability, water resistance, aesthetics and sustainable attributes of concrete.

    Plasticizers and Superplasticizers

    Our specially formulated admixtures have water-reducing properties that allow the production of high-strength durable concrete, and possess high workability characteristics for ease of placement. These plasticizers can be found under the MasterGlenium, MasterPolyheed, MasterRheobuild and MasterPozzolith product families and can be combined with our MasterSure technology, to enhance slump retention, without impacting setting time.

    MasterGlenium: high-range water-reducing admixtures.

    MasterPolyheed: non-chloride, mid-range water-reducing admixtures.

    MasterRheobuild: high-range water-reducing admixtures with rheoplastic properties.

    MasterPozzolith: water-reducing admixtures for lower strength concrete.

    MasterSure: slump retention technology for concrete.

    MasterCast: concrete enhancers for manufactured concrete producers.

    Specialty Products

    Our specialty line of auxiliary admixtures modify the characteristics of the concrete to assist in the stripping of forms, control setting time, provide self-leveling characteristics, entrain air, mitigate corrosion, sulfate attack and alkali silica reaction, and improve the concrete’s surface appearance and aesthetics.

    Through world-class, innovative admixtures, and Master Builders Solutions' expertise, we help concrete producers to develop concrete that possesses special performance characteristics. The special performance characteristics include strength on demand, robust stability, high levels of workability and sustainability, enhanced extrusion, anti-washout performance, crack control and resistance to water. These unmatched performance attributes and economics can be quantified using a host of novel electronic tools developed by Master Builders Solutions for our customers to enhance their profitability, and to differentiate them in the marketplace.

    MasterCast: concrete enhancers for manufactured concrete producers.

    MasterLife – corrosion resistant admixtures.

    MasterAir – air-entraining admixtures.

    MasterFinish – concrete surface and finish enhancing admixtures.

    MasterColor – color and finish enhancing admixtures.

    MasterKure – curing agents.

    MasterSet – concrete setting-time adjusters.

    MasterCell – density reducing admixtures.

    MasterMatrix – self-consolidating concrete admixtures.

    MasterPel – water resistant, efflorescence-controlling admixtures.

    MasterFiber – crack control fibers.

    Fiber-reinforced concrete enhances the durability of concrete by reducing crack width typically due to plastic shrinkage, long term drying shrinkage and thermal changes. Because concrete cannot be prevented from cracking, the goal is to keep the cracks tightly closed in order to maintain long-term durability.

    Benefits of fiber-reinforced concrete:

    • Eliminates the need for welded-wire reinforcement (WWR) and conventional steel bars as secondary reinforcement, depending on the application
    • Effective tight crack control
    • Extends service life with reduced maintenance
    • Faster speed of construction and time savings
    • Labor savings
    • Improved worker safety
    • Reduces plastic settlement

    Master Builders Solutions offers the MasterFiber line of products for every level of reinforcement:

    • Level 1: Control of plastic shrinkage cracking
      • MasterFiber microsynthetic monofilament fibers
    • Level 2: Replacement of light gauge welded-wire reinforcement
      • MasterFiber microsynthetic fibrillated fibers
    • Level 3: Post-crack control and replacement of traditional shrinkage and temperature reinforcement
      • MasterFiber macrosynthetic fibers and steel fibers
    • Level 4: Partial or complete replacement of structural steel reinforcing bars
