BASF admixtures reduce water for precast producers

BASF has introduced the Glenium 7000 series high-range water-reducing admixtures, which offer performance benefits for precast and prestressed concrete producers.

The backbone of the new Glenium 7000 products is a series of nextgeneration polycarboxylate polymers that offer producers the ability to maintain slump, workability and setting time while providing high early strength. This results in more consistent and durable concrete production and more cost-effectiveness for the producer.

Precast concrete producers are reporting increased productivity due to accelerated concrete placement, faster form turnover and improved surface appearance, said Joe Daczko, product manager at BASF, in a news release. “These new Glenium products are revolutionizing the high-range water-reducing admixture market by creating a versatile concrete mixture that optimizes performance, producing the most cost-effective and durable concrete for our customers.”
