    ​SikaGrind® AE 5101 (formerly known as MasterCem® AE 5101) - Cement additive engineered for air entraining and plasticizing of masonry cement

    How does it work?

    MasterCem AE 5101 is a liquid, ready-to-use additive for masonry cement or other cements requiring air entraining. 

    Cements produced with MasterCem AE 5101, once mixed with water, show an air entrainment in the range or 10-20%. The air bubbles are properly sized and well dispersed in the paste, acting as tiny, flexible ball bearings. As a consequence, the fresh paste is better workable, easier to place, and with better cohesion, allowing great savings in application time. This is particularly valuable in vertical walls jobs. MasterCem AE 5101 also increases the water retention of the fresh paste that hardens in a more controlled way without breaks and cracks leading to greater resistance to freeze and thaw.

    In addition to acting as an air entrainer, MasterCem AE 5101 works as a grinding aid and pack-set inhibitor, with positive impact on grinding efficiency, cement conveyance and storage.

    What is it used for?

    MasterCem AE 5101 is developed for application in the cement grinding process in:
    • Ball mills (closed and open circuit)
    • Vertical mills
    • Other cement grinding systems

    What are the benefits?

    MasterCem AE 5101 offers the following benefits to cement production and application:
    • Enhanced mortar paste workability due to the air entraining effect. Faster mixing and application, with fewer efforts for workers and better cohesion to walls. Reduced bleeding and segregation.
    • Improved plaster quality (less cracks) and durability, due to better water retention and more regular hardening.
    • Cost reduction and optimized cement operations, due to lower unit grinding energy (kWh/t), faster conveyance and optimized storage.
