MasterGlenium® ACE 3435
Essential component of ZERO ENERGY SYSTEM – A new generation of high-performance polycarboxylate ether (PCE) superplasticizers for the Precast industry.
MasterGlenium® ACE 3435 (Admixture Controlled Energy) consists of a range of innovative superplasticizers based on newly developed polycarboxylate ether polymers. The particular molecular configuration of MasterGlenium® ACE 3435 accelerates the cement hydration by exposing increased surface of the cement grains to react with water. 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 3435 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 3435.
Where is MasterGlenium® ACE 3435 applied?
MasterGlenium® ACE 3435 is suitable for making precast concrete elements with highly- fluid concrete without segregation but low water cement ratio and, consequently, high early and final strengths. MasterGlenium® ACE 3435 may be used in combination with MasterMatrix® for producing advanced self- compacting concrete like Smart Dynamic Concrete (SDC, latest V- type SCC), without the aid of vibration, for economic, ecological and ergonomic precast production.
What are the advantages of MasterGlenium® ACE 3435?
MasterGlenium® ACE 3435 offer the following benefits for the precast concrete industry:
• Production of highly flowable, robust self-compacting 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 mix- design optimization.
• Elimination of heat curing.
• Improved surface appearance.
