INNOVATION IN THE CONCRETE INDUSTRY

Introducing Master X-Seed® 55 – Strength-Enhancing Admixture. This admixture is based on a technology that ensures a stable suspension of synthetically-produced crystalline CSH nanoparticles. These particles act as seeds in a concrete mixture to facilitate the growth of active crystals between cement particles. The unique technology of Master X-Seed 55® admixture provides an unmatched improvement of the hydration process in a concrete matrix which increases early- and late age strength development compared to an untreated concrete mixture. It provides solutions for tight construction schedules and deadlines, while helping to reduce the carbon footprint of concrete.

THE IMPORTANCE OF AGGREGATES

Have you ever stopped to think about the role sand and gravel play in your life?

Aggregates are the foundation of our economy and society. They are non-renewable resources such as sand, gravel and stone which everyone uses and benefits from every day. We live in homes and work in buildings built with aggregate; children in our communities go to schools built with aggregate; every one of us travel on sidewalks, roads and highways constructed from aggregate to reach our destinations safely. Believe or not, even the water we drink is filtered and purified by aggregate!
