Technology – Core Performance & Functionality

Salt is a mineral that exists abundantly in nature - sand, gravel, cement, and water are the ingredients of concrete, all these materials contain salts. When MM-500 is added to a mixture of these ingredients including cement it reacts with salt present. MM-500 mixes with salts and makes salt insoluble and inert; these inert salts become part of the concrete. Moreover, any foreign corrosive salt particles cannot affect the concrete due to the common-ion effect. By adding the MM-500, concrete compacts homogenously.

Initially, linear polymerization is created between the “noodles” and “lumps” then bridged by cross-linking. Bonding and compaction make the concrete significantly impermeable and porous free. During casting, it helps the concrete to maintain the temperature at suitable levels, creating thermal auto-control whereby the concrete is prevented from rapid dehydration. It also works as a partial auto agent to hold adequate water, to cure and ultimately ensures strength. These catalytic reactions at this stage control moderate evaporation, so microscopic hairlines cannot be formed due to rapid dehydration.

Our product stops the carbonation process; therefore, the decaying caused by the formation of ultimate carbonic acid, and the aging in concrete is prevented. Residual catalytic or masking effect forms a permanent bonding with sodium/potassium ions, already present in the chain to form an inert water-insoluble compound, so the strength of concrete is never lost. Another key function of adding our product to concrete is its ability to remove rust and scales from rebars during casting. Certain key elements of the product stop the reaction of negative substances known as by- products of polymerization, so no corrosion is formed in the future.

The admixture is always active. It is ready to mask against chlorides, sulfates, carbonates; and other harmful, natural, and synthetic elements.
