What are the features and benefits of MasterGlenium SKY 8540?

  • MasterGlenium SKY 8540 is based on Total Performance Control™ concept – which ensures that ready-mix producers, contractors and engineers get a concrete that is of the same high quality as originally specified; starting from
  • production at the batching plant, to the delivery and application into place and followed by its hardening process. Utilising Rheodynamic Concrete technology, it provides a concrete mix with exceptional placing characteristics and accelerated cement hydration for early strength development and high-quality concrete.
  • The product offers the following benefits for:

The ready-mix producer:

  • Capability of delivering high quality concrete at any time to the job site in place
  • Production of concrete with low w/c ratio that meets international guidelines for consistency classes(EN 206-1) without loss of workability
  • Single product for many application needs

The Contractor/Applicator:

  • Easier placing and faster strength development
  • Improved concrete surface
  • Guarantee to place the same concrete as specified and ordered from ready-mix plant

The Engineer/Developer

  • Insurance that concrete meets original specifications
  • High quality concrete with improved durability​
