Master X-Seed STE 100 - Strength enhancing admixture
How does Master X-Seed STE 100 work?
Master X-Seed STE 100 is a patent-pending, strength enhancing admixture that improves both early and late-age strength development in concrete, while supporting sustainable construction. Master X-Seed STE 100 admixture is based on a unique technology that facilitates improved cement hydration, thus enhancing strength development. Master X-Seed STE 100 will meet ASTM C 494/C 494M requirements for Type S, Specific Performance, admixtures.
- Green Sense Concrete
- Ready-mixed concrete
- Pre-stressed concrete
- Precast concrete
- Self-consolidating concrete
What are the unique features of Master X-Seed STE 100?
The strength enhancing property of Master X-Seed STE 100 admixture permits a reduction in the total cementitious materials content of a given concrete mixture while maintaining compressive strength development equivalent to that of reference concrete, with associated benefits in CO2 emissions reduction.
What are the benefits of Master X-Seed STE 100?
- Improves cement hydration
- Increases strength development – both early (1 day) and late-age (28 days)
- Enhances workability of high performance concrete mixtures
- Provides a strength safety factor and/or expanded performance space
- Reduces in place concrete costs when utilized in optimized concrete mixtures
- Permits higher replacement levels of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs)
- Permits earlier stripping and reuse of forms
- Helps reduce CO2 emissions associated with concrete
