MasterCem GA 1520: Liquid, ready-to-use cement grinding aid

Formerly: Cementium 1520 GA

 

How does MasterCem GA 1520 work?

MasterCem GA 1520 cement additive is a liquid, ready-to-use portland cement grinding aid. MasterCem GA 1520 is an amine-based product that neutralizes the agglomeration forces that are produced when cement particles are fractured during the grinding process. The result is a dispersion effect that promotes the development of cement fineness along with a positive impact on grinding and separator efficiency. The improved performance can be used to lower the grinding energy cost or to increase mill throughput.

Grinding efficiency improvement is typically in the 10-20% range vs. untreated cement. Product performance is dependent on raw material properties, grinding equipment characteristics, process conditions and cement type.

MasterCem GA 1520 cement additive also improves the flow characteristics of cement through the mill and inhibits pack set. MasterCem GA 1520 meets the requirements of ASTM C 465, for liquid processing additives.
