Admixtures

Concrete admixtures are naturally occurring or processed chemicals which are “added” to concrete to modify its properties. We use these admixes to provide our customers with the specific mix of concrete that will meet their needs.

Slag

Slag or GGBFS is Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag is used to replace a portion of Portland Cement in concrete mix designs.  It is a recovered industrial by-product of an…

Density Reducing

MasterCell 30 admixture is a highly concentrated foaming agent for use in producing Controlled Low Strength Materials (CLSM), and engineered, cellular cementitious mixtures (mortar, concrete, or grout) for numerous applications.…

Shrinkage Compensating

Concrete loses volume as the water it contains from the mixing process, hydrates and evaporates. This loss of volume often causes shrinkage cracking. MasterLife SRA 20 is a shrinkage compensating…

Set Stabilizer

MasterSet Delvo set stabilizer extends the finishability of concrete and gives the cement finisher extra time to work the material. MasterSet Delvo can slow the set time of Ready Mixed…

Set Retarder

MasterSet R 100 ready-to-use liquid admixture is used for producing more uniform and predictable quality concrete. Placing and finishing requirements are facilitated because this admixture retards setting time

Accelerating

These admixes increase the rate of early strength development, reduce the time required for proper curing and protection and speed up the start of finishing operations. All of these features…

Water-Reducing

As the name implies, these admixes reduce the required water content of a concrete mixture by approximately 5-10 percent. Concrete containing less water, which still maintains the desired slump, is…

Air-Entraining
