MasterPolyheed 3536 - Next generation superplasticizer for the production of high quality ready-mix concrete with low water cement ratio and enhanced rheology
What is MasterPolyheed 3536?
MasterPolyheed 3536 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 concrete.
MasterPolyheed 3536 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.
