MasterGlenium SKY 8403 - New generation high range water reducing admixture
What is MasterGlenium SKY 8403?
MasterGlenium SKY 8403 is a new generation admixture based on polycarboxylic ether combined with the DELVO CRETE Hydration Control Stabilizer. Compared to traditional superplasticizers, MasterGlenium SKY 8403 has a more powerful dispersing effect and is able to provide extended open times for wet mix sprayed concrete.
How does MasterGlenium SKY 8403 work?
The excellent dispersing effect makes MasterGlenium SKY 8403 the ideal choice for wet mix sprayed concrete where high early and final strengths are required. MasterGlenium SKY 8403 provides a reduction in water content of approximately 25 - 30 % and still achieves the required workability.
What makes MasterGlenium SKY 8403 a unique solution?
Compared to traditional superplasticizers, MasterGlenium SKY 8403 has a more powerful dispersing effect and is able to provide extended open times for wet mix sprayed concrete.
MasterGlenium SKY 8403 pushes the performance of concrete while saving cement and water.
The excellent dispersion effect makes MasterGlenium SKY 8403 especially suitable for concrete used in construction which requires good workability and high early and final strengths. The ability to work with low water /cement ratios and still obtain extended slump retention allows for the manufacture of high-quality concrete.
Maintaining the high flowability of the concrete allows the material to be placed quickly and efficiently whilst ensuring consistency. The consistent workability of the concrete enables placement and finishing leading to easier operations, less wastage, and time savings.
As a self-compacting concrete, MasterGlenium SKY 8403 makes complicated concrete structural construction possible and easier.
Benefits of MasterGlenium SKY 8403
MasterGlenium SKY 8403 offers the following benefits for ready mix concrete:
- Allows for highly workable concrete at the lowest water-to-cement ratio - without segregation and bleeding
- Provides extended open time to allow transportation and placing of the sprayed concrete, even hours after batching
- Improved pumpability due to increased cohesion in the concrete mix
- Reduced wear and tear on the pump
- Greater durability from improved mechanical properties in the concrete
- High early and final strengths
- Reduced permeability due to low water-to-cement ratio
