MasterGlenium SKY 8520 – Engineered waterproof concrete admixture with super retention technology
How does MasterGlenium SKY 8520 work?
MasterGlenium SKY 8520 has the property of reducing the amount of water required to produce a desired workability. In addition, it prolongs the slump retention to over 2 hours and reduces water permeability significantly over control.
MasterGlenium SKY 8520 is a new generation high range water reducing admixture, based on chains of modified polycarboxlylate ether technology. It is chloride-free, meets SS EN 934, Set retarding/high range water reducing/superplasticizing admixtures, and ASTM C 494 requirements for Type D and Type G and it is also compatible with all cements meeting the ASTM standards.
What makes MasterGlenium SKY 8520 a unique solution?
MasterGlenium SKY 8520 is based on a highly concentrated, chloride-free integral waterproofing polymer with super retention technology.
The concrete becomes watertight and has lower shrinkage potential due to the lower water content. The wide dispersion of cement particles also results in less agglomeration and more efficient potential for autogenously healing of fine cracks due to progressive hydration even after 28 days.
Good impermeability increase the durability of building structure
MasterGlenium SKY 8520 enables concrete of the lowest permeable voids (<5%). This helps in achieving greater durability for the building structures through reduction of permeability, water absorption and resistance to chloride and sulphate attacks. It minimizes the risk of non-structural cracks and lower long term shrinkage.
MasterGlenium SKY 8520 produces highly flowable yet stable concrete mix that allows the material to be placed quickly and efficiently whilst ensuring consistency. The consistent workability of the concrete enables placement and finishing leading to easier operations, less wastage and time savings.
