MasterGlenium ACE 415 - A high-performance polycarboxylic ether based superplasticiser for the pre-cast industry
How does MasterGlenium ACE 415 work?
MasterGlenium ACE 415 is a high range water reducing superplasticiser. The particular molecular configuration of MasterGlenium ACE 415 accelerates the cement hydration by exposing more of the surface of the cement grains to react with the mix water, thereby maximising the initial heat of hydration. The increased heat produced by the reaction in turn accelerates the hardening of the concrete leading to much higher earlier strengths being attained than with normal superplasticisers.
MasterGlenium ACE 415 is designed to modify the rheology of the concrete and can be used to achieve a concrete mix with a normal slump or up to a fluid consistency, even with a very low water to cement ratio.
MasterGlenium ACE 415 meets the requirements of:
- ASTM C-494 Type A and F
- EN 934-2
What is MasterGlenium ACE 415 used for?
MasterGlenium ACE 415 is designed for use in the manufacture of high quality structural concrete elements, in particular for pre-cast concrete, where optimisation of the de-moulding time is critical.
MasterGlenium ACE 415 can be used in conjunction with MasterMatrix to produce advanced self- compacting concrete mixes, Smart Dynamic Concrete (SDC), eliminating the need for compaction and improving the surface finish.
What are the benefits of MasterGlenium ACE 415?
MasterGlenium ACE 415 has been formulated specifically for use in the Middle East climate and it offers the following advantages:
- Eliminates the dependence on compaction energy
- Reduced concrete repair costs due to improved surface finish
- Job time and cost reduced through higher productivity rates and/or reduced labour
- Early strength allows for fast turnaround of moulds increasing productivity
