Next generation superplasticizer for the production of high quality ready-mix concrete with low
water cement ratio and enhanced rheology
MasterPolyheed 3533 is part of a range of
latest generation superplasticizers formulated
from unique polymers manufactured in-house by
BASF. It is specially engineered for ready-mix
MasterPolyheed 3533 is differentiated from
conventional superplasticisers, such as those
based on sulphonated naphthalene
formaldehyde condensate in that it is based on
unique polymers with long lateral chains. This
greatly improves cement dispersion. At the start
of the mixing process the same electrostatic
dispersion occurs but the presence of the lateral
chains, linked to the polymer backbone,
generate a steric hindrance which stabilises the
cement particles capacity to separate and
This mechanism provides flowable concrete with
greatly reduced water demand.
