MasterPolyheed 3836 - A polycarboxylic ether based superplasticizer for the production of high quality ready-mix concrete


MasterPolyheed 3836 is an innovative latest generation superplasticizer based on polycarboxylic ether (PCE) polymers, and is specially engineered for ready-mix concrete. 

MasterPolyheed 3836 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
