MAPEI Performance Enhancer /C-C Strengths and Flow Enhancers from Cement to Concrete
MA.P.E./C-C are polycarboxylate based products used to improve cement quality in terms of workability and strength, and to aid cement grinding by increasing mill production.
They are highly concentrated additives formulated with only selected raw materials, to guarantee absolute constancy of quality and superior performance.
MA.P.E./C-C, thanks to their formulation rich in acrylic polymers, notably improve the cement workability and reduce the water demand, especially in blended cements.
Moreover, thanks to their formulation, they increase the cement strength because of the improved granulometric distribution, the higher fineness, and the higher calcium silicates hydration rate of the finished product.
Use MA.P.E./C-C in case you would like to improve the performance of new cements (i.e., calcined clay, demolition waste, recycled concrete, bricks, tiles) where a significant increase of workability is required.
Moreover, the use of MA.P.E./C-C allows to increase mill output and reduce the specific energy consumption significantly, to improve late strengths of cement and reduce the clinker content without affecting cement quality.
Please refer to the appropriate safety data sheets.
Dosage 1,0 – 3,0 kg/t
We suggest the higher dosage threshold, if the aim is the substitution of clinker with blending materials (i.e., pozzolana, fly ash, calcined clay, demolition waste, recycled concrete, bricks, tiles) or the strong reduction of the water demand of the cement.
The optimum dosage, in any case, must be optimized through a reliable industrial trial, preferably with the help of MAPEI Cement Additives Division technicians.
MA.P.E./C-C should be added to the clinker on the mill feed conveyor belt or sprayed in the first mill compartment using a membrane or piston dosing pump.
MA.P.E./C-C are available in plastic tanks (1.100 Kg net), in flexi-tanks (22-24) tons or in bulk trucks.
Maintain the additives at a temperature above 2°C.
In normal conditions MA.P.E./C-C shelf life is at least 24 months.
The MAPEI Cement Additives Division specialists are available to optimize the grinding circuit during the industrial trials and to suggest the most suitable dosage system.
During the usage of MA.P.E./C-C it is recommended to take the usual precautions for the handling of chemicals by wearing protective gloves and safety goggles.
Instructions for the safe use of our products can be found on the latest version of the Safety Data Sheet available upon request.
