MasterGlenium SKY 8700 - New generation superplasticising admixture for extended slump retention



How does MasterGlenium SKY 8700 work?

MasterGlenium SKY 8700 is one of the new generation superplasticisers with super retention technology. MasterGlenium SKY 8700 contains polycarboxylate ether polymers and is specially formulated for ready-mixed concrete where moderate slump retention, high strength and durability are required. The degree of slump retention will depend on ambient temperature, mix design and dose rate. Generally, for a given mix design and dose rate, slump retention will be reduced with increasing temperature.
MasterGlenium SKY 8700 is free of added chlorides, complies with AS1478.1–2000, Type MWR/HWR, and is compatible with all cements meeting recognized international standards.

Recommended uses:

  • Concrete with less water content than with conventional admixtures
  • Faster mixing logistics during large jobs
  • High flowability concrete
  • Mid-range slump concrete
  • Highly durable concrete
  • Ready-mixed concrete
  • Mass concrete
  • Long distance transport
  • Pumped concrete
  • Hot weather concreting


What makes MasterGlenium SKY 8700 unique solution?

The excellent dispersion effect makes MasterGlenium SKY 8700 the ideal admixture for the ready-mixed concrete industry. The ability to work with low water/cement ratios and still obtain extended slump retention allows for the manufacture of high quality concrete..
