MM 400

MM-400
 

Description

MM-400 is a multipurpose admixture which can be used for any type of concrete construction. MM-400 is mainly composed of an emulsifier which also acts as a surfactant and has a masking effect on cement. MM-400 is capable of grafting emulsified plasticizers, monomer of salts, esters of fatty acids, and oils derived from glycerides of animals, plants and synthetic sources to form a stable emulsion (immiscible liquid in liquid), and suspension (solid in liquid) a chemical dispersion medium. On aging, polymerization takes place and molecules are linked up to form a more complex product with properties needed for an ideal admixture.

MM-400, by passing through a cementitious reaction process, the molecules find their space and deposits in between capillaries and vacant pores. MM-400 enables concrete longevity and durability. MM-400 is water base, milky-white in color, physically liquid to viscous in appearance and is non-flammable, non-hazardous and eco-friendly.

 

Advantages

  • Water proofing agent (either direction - negative or positive).
  • Provides excellent resistance to air & water borne corrosive chemicals.
  • Damp proofing agent.
  • Protects moisture transmission by creating polymer membrane.
  • Allows perfect compaction (no segregation due to excessive vibration).
  • Impermeable hence increases durability.
  • Allows concrete to gain maximum density with high performance (HPC).
  • Reduces honey comb, porosity & hairline cracks.
  • Anti-Salinity and Sulphur resistant.
  • Halts permanently carbonation process and leaching of sodium.
  • Anti-corrosion: permanently protects and stops internal aging and decay.
  • Anti-Oxidant: Prevents oxidation against rust and scales on rebar.
  • Partial auto curer.
  • Fair-face effect: Reduces air bubbles of concrete ensuring a permanent smooth surface.
  • Allows easy release of formwork.
  • Strength increasing admixture.
 

Recommended Usage

Use MM-400 to provide permanent protection for all concrete such as:

  • RCC Roads - Highways, Bridges and Dams.
  • Water treatment plant (WTP), effluent treatment plant (ETP), sewage, and manholes.
  • Storm surge barriers, docks, levees, jetty & dikes for diversion of rising sea water.
  • Airport runways.
  • Concrete homes including basements, foundations, swimming pools, water reservoir, decks, bathrooms, garages, rooftop & exteriors.
  • Below-grade parking structures, basements & elevator pits.
  • Recreational facilities; such as, aquatic centers, aquariums, zoos, water parks and marinas.
  • Architectural water features; such as, fountains and waterfalls.
