Master X-Seed STE - Strength-Enhancing Admixture
How does Master X-Seed STE work?
Master X-Seed STE is a patent-pending, strength enhancing admixture that improves both early and late-age strength development in concrete, while supporting sustainable construction. Master X-Seed STE admixture is based on a unique technology that facilitates improved cement hydration, thus enhancing strength development.
The strength-enhancing property of Master X-Seed STE admixture permits a reduction in the total cementitious material content of a given concrete mixture while maintaining compressive strength development equivalent to that of reference concrete, with associated benefits in CO2 reduction.
What are the recommended uses of Master X-Seed STE?
- Green Sense Concrete
- Ready-mixed Concrete
- Pre-stressed Concrete
- Precast Concrete
- Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC)
What are the features and benefits of Master X-Seed STE?
- Improves cement hydration
- Increases strength development - both early (1-day) and late-age (28-day)
- Enhances workability of high-performance concrete mixtures
- Provides a strength safety factor and/or expanded performance space
- Reduces in-place concrete costs when utilized in optimized concrete mixtures.
- Permits higher replacement levels of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs)
- Permits earlier stripping and reuse of forms
- Helps reduce CO2 emissions associated with concrete
