MasterGlenium ACE 437 - A high-performance polycarboxylate ether (PCE) superplasticizer for the Precast industry
MasterGlenium ACE (Admixture Controlled
Energy) consists of a range of innovative
superplasticizers based on latest generation
polycarboxylate ether polymers.
molecular configuration of
MasterGlenium ACE 437 accelerates the
cement hydration by exposing increased surface
of the cement grains to react with water. As a
result, it is possible to obtain earlier development
of the heat of hydration, rapid development of
the hydration products and, as a consequence,
higher strengths at very early age.
structure of MasterGlenium ACE 437 is
specially designed to improve the rheology of
precast concrete, making it flowable and less
viscous even at very low water/cement ratios.
Robustness is a distinctive feature precast
concrete produced with
MasterGlenium ACE 437.
Where is MasterGlenium ACE 437 applied?
MasterGlenium ACE 437 is suitable for making
precast concrete elements with highly-fluid
concrete without segregation at low water
cement ratios with consequently high early and
MasterGlenium ACE 437
may be used in combination with MasterMatrix
for producing advanced Self Compacting
Concrete (SCC) or Smart Dynamic Concrete
(SDC) without the aid of vibration, for economic,
ecological and ergonomic precast production.
What are the advantages of MasterGlenium ACE 437?
MasterGlenium ACE 437 offer the following
benefits for the precast concrete industry:
- Production of highly flowable, robust selfcompacting
concrete having a low water
cement ratio along with an optimal rheology
- Enhanced robustness and consistency in
concrete quality with low stickiness
- Environmentally friendly, CO2 reduced mix
Elimination or reduction of heat curing
- Improved surface appearance
- Durable precast concrete elements as per
- Elimination of the energy required for placing,
compaction and curing
- Optimization of the curing cycles by reducing
curing time or curing temperature
- Increased productivity
