Integral Concrete Waterproofing Admixture Powder

MasterLife - Durability enhancing and waterproofing concrete admixtures

How does MasterLife work?

The MasterLife product family of admixtures impart a wide range of properties into concrete that provide resistance to deterioration caused by abrasion, corrosion of steel, alkali silica reaction, sulfate attack, and drying shrinkage cracking.

What makes MasterLife a unique solution?

Depending on the specific product selected, the MasterLife brand of solutions provides just the right performance in concrete for mitigating deterioration caused by the aggressive exposure conditions. The result is a more durable concrete mix with increased service life potential.

Having the right admixture partner is vital for success.

The MasterLife product family comes with the Master Builders Solutions technical support team from BASF. By listening to our customers and working closely with them we are able to introduce new and exciting products and develop specific solutions for the most efficient and cost-effective concrete production.

A Major Challenge: Waterproofing along the Water Cycle

Concrete structures along the water cycle are in permanent contact with water and need to remain operational without interruptions.

Waterproofing is a major challenge

Water can penetrate building materials by various means, such as capillary absorption, ponding, hygroscopic uptake or condensation. The effective waterproofing of dams, channels, aqueducts, WatertanksWatertowersWastewater plants or other building structures, to prevent water ingress or loss, is a major challenge requiring easy application, a quick return to service and long-term durability.

Economic Benefit

Concrete designed for durability will typically increase the initial cost of the mixture. However, the use of BASF's durabilty-enhancing admixtures can provide significant Economic Benefits over the life of a structure as illustrated in the following chart.

Bridge Corrosion Waterproofing Admixtures for Concrete

The bridge on the right is experiencing heavy corrosion. The bridge on the left was built to prevent corrosion by using high performance concrete with durability-enhancing admixtures. Durability issues, such as corrosion of reinforcing steel in roads, bridges and parking structures, can be effectively addressed with durability-enhancing admixtures from BASF.
