MasterGlenium ACE 415 - A new generation high-performance polycarboxylic ether based superplasticizer for the Precast industry.
Formerly Glenium ACE 415
MasterGlenium ACE 415 (Admixture Controlled
Energy) consists of a range of innovative
superplasticizers based on newly developed
polycarboxylic ether polymers. The particular
molecular configuration of MasterGlenium ACE
415 accelerates the cement hydration by exposing
increased surface of the cement grains to react
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
415 is specially designed to improve the rheology
of precast concrete, making it very flowable and
low viscous even at very low water/cement ratios,
without increasing stickiness. Robustness is a
distinctive feature of the precast concrete produced
with MasterGlenium ACE 415.
Where is MasterGlenium ACE 415 applied?
MasterGlenium ACE 415 is suitable for making
precast concrete elements with normal, high slump
or highly-fluid concrete without segregation with a
low water cementitious ratio, consequently, high
early and final strengths are achieved.
MasterGlenium ACE 415 can also be used in
combination with MasterMatrix for producing
advanced self-compacting concrete such as Smart
Dynamic Concrete (SDC, latest type SCC), without
the aid of vibration giving economic, ecological and
ergonomic precast production
What are the advantages of MasterGlenium ACE 415?
MasterGlenium ACE 415 offers 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 mixdesign
- Improved surface appearance
- Durable precast concrete elements as per EN
- Elimination or reduction of the energy required
for placing, compaction and curing
- Optimization of the curing cycles by reducing
curing time or curing temperature
- Increased productivity
