Concrete Admixtures

    MB-AE™ 90

MB-AETM 90 is an air-entraining admixture which meets the requirements of ASTM-C 260, AASHTO-M 154 and CRD-C 13. The following benefits can be realized with air entrainment of concrete:

  • Increased resistance to damage from freezing and thawing
  • Increased resistance to scaling from deicing salts
  • Reduced permability - increasing waterthightness
  • Reduced segregation and bleeding
  • Improved plasticity and workability.

    Polyheed® 997

Polyheed® 997 is a ready-to-use, liquid water reducing admixture. It meets ASTM-C 494 Type A and Type F requirements. It is designed to produce superior workability and finish-ability.

  • Reduced water content for a given slump
  • Normal setting time
  • Increased compressive and flexural strength performance
  • Improved concrete durability to damage from freezing and thawing.

    Pozzolith® 100 XR

Pozzolith® 100 XR is a ready-to-use, liquid admixture for producing more uniform and predictable quality concrete. Placing and finishing requirements are facilitated because this admixture retards setting time.

Pozzolith® 100 XR admixture will not initiate or promote corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete, and meets ASTM-C 494, Type B, retarding, and Type D, water-reducing and retarding admixtures.

    Pozzutec® 20+

Pozzutec® 20+ is a ready-to-use, non-chloride, liquid admixture formulated to accelerate setting time and increase early and ultimate strengths across a wide range of cold weather and sub-freezing temperatures.

Pozzutec® 20+ meets the performance requirements of ASTM-C 494 specifications for Type C accelerating admixtures and Type E water-reducing and accelerating admixtures.

  • Superior workability
  • Superior finishing characteristics for flatwork and cast surfaces
  • Accelerated setting time
  • Earlier finishing of slabs.

    PS 1466 Glenium

PS 1466 is a ready-to-use, high-range, water-reducing admixture. It is a new generation, patent-pending admixture based on polycarboxylate chemistry. PS 1466 is very effective in producing concretes with different levels of workability, including applications that require self-consolidating concrete (SCC). The use of PS 1466 results in improved compressive strength providing mixture proportioning flexibility.

PS 1466 is particularly effective in improving concrete mixtures with reduced Portland cement contents without compromising 28-day strength requirements. PS 1466 will meet ASTM-C 494 requirements for Type A, water-reducing, and Type F, high-range water-reducing admixtures.

  • Maximum dosage effectiveness for a given water reduction.
  • Controlled rheology
  • Robust air-entraining admixture compatibility
  • Improved strength development.
  • Can be used in a wide variety of concrete mixtures as a Type A or Type F admixture
  • Improved finishability and surface appearance
  • Mixture development flexibility for cement reductions and/or increased use of supplementary cementitious materials.

Mortar Admixtures


DRY-BLOCK® is an integral water repellent admixture for mortar. When used in combination with concrete masonry units containing DRY-BLOCK® Block Admixture, it constitutes the integral water pregellent system of choice for concrete masonry construction.

Recommended sequence for mixing:

  • Add 2/3 of the water to the mixer
  • Add DRY-BLOCK®
  • Add sand
  • Add cement and lime
  • Add additional water as necessary
  • Mix a minimum of 5 additional minutes after all materials have been added to the mixer.

Easy-Spred™ mortar additive is a plasticizer used in mortars consisting of Portland cement and mason sand. It is designed for use primarily in mortar for unit masonry, but is also used in Portland cement-based plasters, stucco, and finish plasters for swimming pools. The use of Easy-Spred™ in mortar will produce a highly plastic, workable mortar with improved water retaining properties. It meets ASTM-C 270.

Recommended sequence for mixing:

  • Start mixer, add 2/3 required water, add Easy-Spred™ and mix for 1 to 1-1/2 min.
  • Add 1/4 to 1/3 of total sand, add Portland cement and mix 2 min.
  • With mixer running, add remaining sand and water.
  • Mix for 6 to 8 min total or until desired workability is reached.
