MM-500 is a multipurpose admixture for concrete. It is an organic material, white in color, liquid to paste like mass depending on temperature and soluble in water. The product is non-ﬂammable, nonhazardous and eco-friendly, which can be used in all types of construction where concrete mixture is involved.

✓ Concrete is made of locally sourced materials to achieve diﬀerent properties like strength, workability, and durability. (Both in USA & overseas). Results of testing will always vary based on the unique mix design. Testing listed is over control and is a compilation of diﬀerent tests in which MM-500 is best in class. MMCL highly recommends consulting the technical team for extensive support with all design speciﬁcations to the client’s requirements to achieve the ultimate result and success of the product usage whether in ﬁeld tests or lab tests to the ﬁnal site performance.
✓ MMCL does not recommend eliminating standard shrinkage control joints. Follow ACI guidelines and MM-500 literature for waterprooﬁng joints.
✓ Do not assume strength increase will occur rapidly but due to the eﬀectiveness and chemical reaction within the curing process of MM-500, while the plastic state holds the properties initially for best results: the ultimate hardened state will suﬃce the required strength eventually.
The maximum dosage is 300 ml / 13.52 oz of MM-500 for every 50 kg / 110 lb of cement but may vary as per the client’s specific need. The table below illustrates an in-depth breakdown of the recommended dosages based on the desired structure.
|Piling||250 ml/ 8.45 oz with 50 Kg/ 110 lb of Cement|
|Superstructure||200 ml to 250 ml/6.76 oz to 8.45 oz with 50 Kg/ 110 lb of Cement*|
|RMC (Ready mix concrete)||0.5% to 0.8% of Cement Weight|
|Cement/ Mortar||250 ml/8.45 oz to 300 ml/13 oz with 50 Kg/ 110 lb of Cement*|
|Bridge/Culvert/Dam||250 ml/8.45 oz to 300 ml/13 oz with 50 Kg/ 110 lb of Cement*|

A pre-pour meeting and consultation with the general contractor, concrete supplier, ready-mix company, ﬁnisher, material testing engineers or laboratory technicians are strongly recommended. Treat construction joints, dosage and mixing in accordance to recommendations & instructions. Dose MM-500 up to a maximum 300ml to 110 lbs of cement in consultation with an authorized MMCL representative. Trial batches are required to determine actual plastic properties.
When mixing MM-500
Mortar mixing machine – Dilute MM-500 in water for the batch, mix with cement & aggregates. For proper inclusion, 6-10 revolutions are recommended.
Ready Mix Truck – Add MM-500 directly into the truck at site. For proper inclusion, 24 revolutions are recommended.
Ready Mix / Batching Plants – Normal procedures as any other admixture during the mixing at the plant. Consulting MMCL Technical team for accuracy of usage and dosage is highly recommended.
Place and ﬁnish concrete in accordance with ACI guidelines. Proper placement and curing are essential to achieve the performance and beneﬁts of MM-500. Curing inﬂuences the overall quality of the concrete structure; thus, proper curing techniques are important to prevent the concrete from shrinking, drying, and cracking especially at the surface. Other than standard procedures no other special curing methods are required. MM-500 helps the concrete to hold the water for self-curing.
To achieve monolithic bonding of blocks between new and old joints of concrete
** The Plaster and Stucco thickness should be 12 mm. to 18 mm.
** Mix design ratio of mortar for Plaster & Stucco should be
1:4 (Cement: Sand)
1. PLASTER: MM-500 suitable for plaster because MM-500 increases mortar smoothness and ﬂexibility thus helping a mason to ﬁnish the work eﬃciently. MM-500 also creates membrane which helps the plaster waterproof.
Dosage of MM-500
A. Exterior Plaster = 300 ml. per 50 kgs. Cement.
B. Interior Plaster = 250 ml. per 50 kgs. cement.
2. STUCCO: MM-500 is suitable for Stucco since MM-500 increases mortar smoothness and ﬂexibility thus helping a mason to allow texture of stucco quickly. MM-500 creates a membrane which helps the Stucco waterproof.
Dosage of MM-500
A. Exterior Stucco = 300 ml. per 50 kgs. Cement.
B. Interior Stucco = 250 ml. per 50 kgs. cement.
