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.
The particular 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.
The polymer 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 ultimate strengths.
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
