MasterCem ES 2178 - Cement additive engineered for enhancement of cement early strength and reduction of unit grinding energy / increase of cement mill throughput
What is MasterCem ES 2178?
MasterCem ES 2178 is a liquid, ready-to-use
cement additive designed to enhance cement
performance. In addition to acting as a Grinding
Aid in the milling process and a flow aid in cement
conveyance, MasterCem ES 2178 improves
specific cement properties by the activity of its
chemical components. These act in the
modification of clinker characteristics and in the
enhancement of its hydraulic properties.
Products of the MasterCem ES 2000 series are
specifically designed to increase early strength of
cement. These benefits can be used either for
achieving superior product performance or for
cement optimization while maintaining the original
performance level. Typical early strength
improvement is +10-25% at 1-2 days vs. plain
control. However, product performance is
dependent on grinding equipment characteristics,
process conditions, raw material properties and
cement type. To best benefit from cement
additives, mill and separator process parameters
may need to be adapted.
MasterCem ES 2178 improves the flow
characteristics of cement with positive impact on
cement conveyance and reduction of pack-set in
What is MasterCem ES 2178 used for?
MasterCem ES 2178 is developed for
application in the cement grinding process in:
• Ball mills (closed and open circuits)
• Vertical mills
• Other grinding systems, such as: GGBS
What are the benefits of MasterCem ES 2178?
MasterCem ES 2178 offers the
following benefits to cement producers:
• Cost reduction due to lower unit grinding
energy (kWh/t) and optimization of cement
fineness and composition while maintaining
• Capacity extension due to higher mill
throughput and optimized cement recipe.
• Product differentiation due to enhanced
cement performance and improved properties
for the final application.
• Improved cement handling due to faster
cement conveyance through the plant and in
Reduction of plant stops and optimized storage
in silos. Very low dust generation during
application and therefore a good working
