MasterPolyheed 3838 - A polycarboxylic ether based superplasticizer for the production of high quality ready-mix concrete
MasterPolyheed 3838 is an innovative second
generation superplasticizer based on
polycarboxylic ether (PCE) polymers, and is
specially engineered for ready-mix concrete.
MasterPolyheed 3838 is differentiated from
conventional superplasticisers, such as those
based on sulphonated naphthalene formaldehyde
condensate in that it is based on a unique
carboxylic ether polymer 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 disperse.
This mechanism provides flowable concrete with
greatly reduced water demand.
