MasterMatrix 2 - Ready-to-use, liquid, organic,viscosity-modifying admixture (VMA) specially developed for producing concrete with enhanced viscosity and controlled rheological properties

How does MasterMatrix 2 work?

MasterMatrix 2 is a ready-to-use, liquid, organic, viscosity-modifying admixture (VMA) specially developed for producing concrete with enhanced viscosity and controlled rheological properties. Concrete containing MasterMatrix 2 admixture exhibits superior stability and controlled bleeding characteristics, thus increasing resistance to segregation and facilitating placement.

The new technology of smart dynamic concrete allows concretes to be compacted without vibration, even with strongly reinforced structures. A self-compacting mix should have a high workability and viscosity. The fluidity of the mix is guaranteed provided there is no friction between the internal particles and the concrete can flow freely; segregation occurs when the components of the concrete separate out into mortar and large aggregates. Reaching the right balance between fluidity and resistance to segregation – apparently opposing properties – is essential for this type of mix. This balance is lacking when the fluidity of the concrete is obtained by adding water. Although a superplasticizer admixture gives high fluidity, alone it does not guarantee the necessary properties to ensure a good degree of self-compacting. That is why MasterMatrix 2 is a fundamental admixture when making Self Compacting Concrete.

Recommended uses:

  • Smart Dynamic Concrete
  • Concrete containing gap-graded aggregates
  • Lean concrete mixtures
  • Concrete containing manufactured sand.

What makes MasterMatrix 2 a unique solution?

MasterMatrix 2 improves viscosity of concrete which helps to make itself consolidated and also to get anti wash out properties.

What are the features and benefits of MasterMatrix 2?

  • Increased viscosity & thixotropic properties
  • Improved stability during transport & placing
  • Controlled bleeding
  • Reduced segregation, even with highly fluid mix
  • Enhanced pumping and finishing
  • Reduced sagging – dimensional stability
  • Enables flexibility in mixture proportioning
