    ​​​​​​​​MasterGlenium SKY – The Superplasticizer for Ready Mix Concrete for Total Performance Control

    Requirements of the concrete industry

    ​Concrete has to fulfill a variety of requirements depending on its user, its field of application, and the environment in which it is placed. For operators of ready mix batching plants, economical concrete production is vital; for contractors, concrete should have long workability and easy placing characteristics. For engineers, the focus is on concrete's mechanical properties such as strength and durability. 

    To address all these requirements simultaneously, Master Builders Solutions has introduced Total Performance Control, based on the latest development of the MasterGlenium® SKY technology. This approach addresses local conditions and requirements individually for the first time by delivering ready mix concrete of uncompromisingly high quality. 

    ​​What is Total Performance Control?

    ​The Total Performance Control concept ensures that ready mix concrete producers, contractors, and engineers achieve a concrete that is of the same high quality as originally specified, starting from production at the batching plant, to the delivery and placement, followed by its hardening process. Total Performance Control provides improved short and long term performances of concrete by controlling the two distinct features essential for high-quality concrete: extended workability and low water to cement ratio. 

    A key element of the Total Performance Control Concept is the newly developed MasterGlenium SKY superplasticizer for ready mix concrete. 

    How does MasterGlenium SK​​Y work?

    The particular configuration of the MasterGlenium SKY molecules allows their delayed absorption onto the cement particles and disperses them effectively over a long period of time. They leave sufficient area on the cement surface to allow a rapid hydration reaction, resulting in high early strength development.

    As a result, our MasterGlenium SKY range is capable of meeting local requirements and conditions.

    What makes MasterGlenium SKY​​​ a unique solution?

    MasterGlenium SKY is Master Builders Solutions' product offering for the ready mix concrete industry

    MasterGlenium SKY products offer a single, versatile admixture for many types of applications and conditions.

    Compared to conventional polycarboxylate ether (PCE) superplasticizers, our MasterGlenium SKY range enables ready-mix producers to optimize inventory, facilitate logistics and reduce investments in tanks and dispenser equipment, thus also decreasing maintenance costs.

    MasterGlenium SKY products ensure a constant high-quality ready-mix concrete at a low water/ cement ratio and extended workability at high temperatures without delayed strength development, meeting the requirements of EN 206-1.

    This new generation of superplasticizers guarantees a concrete that meets the original specification from the fresh to the hardened stage.
