High range water reducing admixture for manufactured concrete products, specially engineered for hollow-core slabs and mixes needing high water reduction
How does MasterCast 701 work?
MasterCast 701 is an innovative multi-purpose plasticizer based on polycarboxylic ether polymers, specially developed for low consistence or earth-dry concrete. The product is also suitable for the production of hollow-core slabs. At the same time, MasterCast 701 accelerates the strength development and reduces the cycle time whilst the appearance is maintained or even improved.
Thanks to its unique principle of action on the cement grain, MasterCast 701 fully exploits the hydration potential of cement resulting in higher early strengths and shorter curing times. MasterCast 701 is a key component to BASF’s FIT 4 VALUE concept. FIT 4 VALUE considers the four elements essential for MCP Manufactures: FIT for Economics, FIT for Performance, FIT for Aesthetics and FIT for Durability. Here, FIT means meeting every requirement for economics, performance, aesthetics and durability.
What is MasterCast 701 used for?
MasterCast 701 is suitable for Manufacturing Concrete Products, especially Block paving mixes needing high water reduction, Blocks and Hollow-core slabs.
What are the benefits of MasterCast 701?
MasterCast 701 offers the following benefits for the MCP industry to:
- Optimised mix design.
- Enhanced productivity due to shorter cycle time.
- Higher early strength.
- Optimised curing cycles due to shorter curing times.
