MasterGlenium SKY 8703 - New generation superplasticising admixture for extended slump retention


How does MasterGlenium SKY 8703 work?

MasterGlenium SKY 8703 is a new generation superplasticiser with super retention technology. It contains polycarboxylate ether polymers and is specially formulated for ready-mix concrete where slump retention, high strength and durability are required in hot climates. The excellent dispersion effect makes MasterGlenium SKY 8703 the ideal admixture for the ready-mix concrete industry.
MasterGlenium SKY 8703 is free of chloride and complies with AS 1478.1 - 2000, and is also 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 8703 unique solution?

The ability to work with low water /cement ratios and still obtain extended slump retention allows for the manufacture of high quality concrete.


What are the benefits of MasterGlenium SKY 8703?
