MasterRheo 1000 - 18.9L pail


Part # MR1000

BASF Rheobuild 1000 high-range, water-reducing admixture is formulated to produce rheoplastic concrete. Rheoplastic concrete flows easily, maintaining high plasticity for time periods longer than conventional superplasticized concrete. Rheoplastic concrete has the low water-cementitious materials ratio of no-slump concrete, providing excellent engineering (hardened) properties. The slump-retention characteristics of rheoplastic concrete permit the addition of Rheobuild 1000 admixture at the batch plant. Rheobuild 1000 admixture meets ASTM C 494 requirements for Type A, water-reducing, and Type F, high-range water-reducing, admixtures. Sold by the pail.


Features and Benefits

  • Less dependence on consolidation energy
  • Job time and cost reduced through higher productivity rates and/or reduced labor
  • Early strength allows for accelerated construction methods, resulting in completion dates ahead of schedule
  • Engineering specification changes can allow for greater limits on the free fall of concrete, lift heights, concrete temperatures and potential economic mixture adjustments

Plastic State:

  • Plasticity range of 8-11 in. (200-280 mm)
  • Extended slump retention
  • Controlled set times
  • Cohesive and non-segregating
  • Minimal bleed water

Hardened State:

  • Higher earlier strengths than can be achieved with conventional superplasticizers
  • Increased ultimate compressive strength
  • Higher modulus of elasticity
  • Improved bond strength to steel
  • Low permeability
  • High durability
  • Reduced shrinkage and creep
  • Highly reliable in-place structural integrity


Recommended for use in:

  • Concrete where high plasticity, normal-setting characteristics and accelerated strengths are desired
  • Prestressed, precast and ready-mixed concrete applications
  • Civil and mining applications
