MasterPozzolith 55R - Unique retarder with mild plasticizing properties


How does MasterPozzolith 55R work?

MasterPozzolith 55R is a unique and special retarder which delays the hydration process, thereby can be used to retard concrete, mortar, cement grouts and all types of cementitious applications.  Compliant to AS 1478.1 – 2000, Type Re.

Recommeded uses:

  • Hot weather concrete where control of initial and final set is important
  • White cement concrete
  • Mass concrete e.g. roller compacted
  • Concrete for dams / pavements
  • High strength mixes, to control set of concrete particularly in high ambient temperatures
  • Retarded mortar applications


What makes MasterPozzolith 55R unique solution?

MasterPozzolith 55R retards the initial and final set and in some cases behaves as a mild plasticizer as well.


What are the benefits of MasterPozzolith 55R?

  • Extension of initial and final set in numerous applications, such as structural in-situ concrete, RCC mass pours, piling concrete
  • Increase in initial and final set
  • Allows upto 5% water reduction in certain cases
  • The strength gain of concrete containing MasterPozzolith 55R is enhanced sligthtly towards later ages
  • Extended life of ready-mixed mortars can be designed in conjunction with air entraining systems while stabilizing setting times according to specific project requirements
