MasterMatrix 150 - High performance viscosity modifying agent (VMA) for fluid concretes
How does MasterMatrix 150 work?
MasterMatrix 150 is an innovative product. It is an aqueous solution of a high-molecular weight synthetic copolymer. Thanks to its tailored mode of action in concrete, MasterMatrix 150 imparts a level of viscosity within a mix enabling the right balance between fluidity, passing ability and resistance to segregation apparently opposing properties - to be achieved. The balance is lacking when the fluidity of the concrete is obtained by adding water.
What are the unique features of MasterMatrix 150?
MasterMatrix 150 is a key component to Master Builders Solutions for Highly Flowable Concrete or Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) for benefits in:
- Economy: Savings on fines (<0.125 mm), up to 40% faster placing and up to 5 times higher placing productivity
- Ecology: Less fines - less CO2, and higher concrete durability
- Ergonomic: Significantly reduces the need for compaction, reduces noise, reduces stickiness of the concrete mixture
What are the benefits of MasterMatrix 150?
MasterMatrix 150 offers the following benefits to the concrete industry:
- Prevents segregation and bleeding
- Can be used with all types of cement
- Does not affect setting time
- Mixes are less sensitive to changes in water demand
